What if I told you that in the future — Blockchain Games can not only solve ALL of those problems — but (from an infrastructure standpoint) are actually SUPERIOR to any game that has ever existed up until now?

Pinball played a major roll in the evolution of video games

You can’t say that video games grew out of pinball, but you can assume that video games wouldn’t have happened without it.

It’s like bicycles and the automobile.

One industry leads to the other and then they exist side-by-side. But you had to have bicycles to one day have motor cars.

This is where things get interesting (i.e: Paradigm Shifting) for the future of games….

What Are The Startling Benefits of Blockchain Games You Would NEVER Guess?

I happily played World of Warcraft during 2007–2010, but one day Blizzard removed the damage component from my beloved warlock’s Siphon Life spell.

I cried myself to sleep, and on that day I realized what horrors centralized services can bring. I soon decided to quit.

With Blockchain games, all of the hours and effort you have invested into your characters and digital assets are YOURS FOREVER and no one can take them away from you including the very creators of the game.

One of the biggest problems with games is that game assets, such as gold, armor, and rare items are not fixed in supply. Even when they are rare, code changes and bugs could alter this rarity at any moment.

In Diablo2 there was a valuable item called a “Stone of Jordan” that was used as currency because it was rare.

However, someone found an item duplication bug and created tons of them.

Developers can also simply change the algorithm that creates these items, and markets can be destroyed in moments.

With Blockchain Games, no central authority figure could ever make a decision on your behalf.

We are already building 3 games in-house, and partnering with game studios that will be building Blockchain Games on Loom DAppChains 😎
