What is the Blockchain Game Alliance?
The Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA) is a coalition of game and blockchain companies committed to advocating for blockchain technology within the game industry.
We believe the rise of blockchain technology offers an unprecedented opportunity for the game industry. The BGA provides an open forum for members to share knowledge and collaborate on research, fostering new ways to create, publish, play and monetize games.
Board members of the BGA include Ubisoft, Enjin, Ultra, Consensys, Alto.io, EverdreamSoft, Gimbl and B2Expand.
Our goal is to encourage the adoption of blockchain technology by raising awareness about its opportunities, creating common standards, and establishing best practices.
The Blockchain Game Alliance focuses on two key missions.
- Raising awareness about how blockchain can transform games and improve or disrupt existing business sectors.
- Accelerating adoption by overcoming existing barriers through innovation and by catalyzing efforts to create actionable industry standards and best practices.
These two missions articulate a set of more specific priority objectives.
- Encourage the development of standards and share best practices
Support research, discussion, knowledge sharing, and the recommendation of standards and best practices in the development and use of decentralized technologies. Standards and strong interoperability are key for broad industry adoption, ensuring the further success of the technologies across different companies and structures.
- Advance public understanding
Advance wider public understanding and awareness of blockchain games by sharing insights, benefits, and limits of decentralized technologies. The BGA will act as trusted experts on blockchain and games for industry and the media, contributing to improving public understanding. We’ll also look to highlight aspirational efforts in the blockchain games sector.
- Provide an open and inclusive platform for discussion and engagement
Create and support opportunities between members and key stakeholders to communicate directly and openly about ideas and issues relevant to blockchain games. We aim to ensure key stakeholders have the knowledge, resources, and the ability to participate fully.
Individuals and companies can join the Blockchain Game Alliance by submitting an application here. Membership is currently free but fees may be considered in the future if they will deliver better services to our members.
