The combination of blockchain technology and gaming creates a lot of opportunities for both industries especially when it comes to growth. Innovations in blockchain gaming have come a long way and are poised to sustain its progress as time progresses.
It’s not surprising how gamers were able to adapt to cryptocurrencies early on, given their familiarity with several virtual currency models, some of which they use in the games they play itself. While this fusion between gaming and blockchain shows a lot of potential, there’s no question that there are still a lot of obstacles that need to be overcome when it comes to its development.
One of the highlights of the implementation of blockchain technology in gaming is with non-fungible assets, which can be anything from virtual cards to additional skins, anything that can be used in-game and is confirmed to be rare and scarce. With blockchain gaming, the authenticity of such items can now be guaranteed with the use of smart contract standards.
