The gaming industry is experiencing a period of revolution thanks to blockchain, NFTs and dApps (decentralized applications).
One of the advantages that the blockchain offers in this sector is the possibility to record information in a unique and immutable way and to sell and buy game assets in a simple way.
Among the various games that can be found on blockchain, the most common are card games and RPGs (Role Playing Games)
My Crypto Heroes, how does it work
Take the My Crypto Heroes game for example, which is one of the games that has perhaps been having the most success in recent times.
In this game, the player can create a team to send out on a mission. Winning increases the level of the character, as well as of the weapons and equipment which can be bought in the dedicated store on OpenSea (over 51,000 items). The player can start earning money simply by playing.
This is made possible thanks to the implementation of the blockchain – in this case Ethereum – as items can be easily tokenized and exchanged.
It’s no coincidence that MakerDAO has also recently stated that they want to join the gaming world by providing a solution with their DAI stablecoin.
In addition, just a couple of months ago, EA (Electronic Arts) with the game Apex Legends introduced a new character named Crypto, perhaps a marketing attempt aimed at those who know this world.
Gamification is certainly inevitable, especially for the big giants who are trying in every way to stay afloat in this market full of potential and rapidly evolving.
