We dream that blockchain, cryptocurrencies and smart contracts are combined with gaming, read our dream here. But to find out if anyone is trying to solve our dream we have looked around to find out which projects are out there.
I were inspired by this year’s Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco was one of the hottest topics were cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology and one of the leading users of this new technology and currency type is DMarket a trading platform for virtual assets turning them into something with the value. Currently, they only offer CS:GO items, and I am hoping that the future will give us more of these marketplaces. Currently, we also see BitGuild being developed and they market them self with
Redefining the relationship between players and developers by facilitating full and true ownership of in-game assets, cheap and safe item trading, cross-game compatibility of items and currency
They are planning to create a platform for trading in-game assets via a platform auction house, besides that all games on the platform uses smart contract technology thereby giving a trustless environment for players to trade assets. All of this is made possible by using the PLAT token as a currency to pay for items and contract executions. And a neat feature is that unlike traditional cryptocurrency wallets, BitGuild’s Item Wallet allows for the display of non-fungible tokens, such as game items and equipment. And since I am interested in that platform because they seem to deliver what I dream of, then I might look more into that project and how likely they are to provide.
