[#CryptoGaming] What does 2020 hold for crypto games?2019
was a turning point in crypto being accepted into the gaming community, and there were several reasons for this. First of all, after the success of CryptoKitties
and Gods Unchained
, other collectible games have gained popularity, such as Decenterland
, Spells of Genesis
, Rare Pepe
and others.💰With the advent of such projects, there was a need for a special tokens, which turn a valuable weapon in the game into a unique, one-off asset that can be exchanged or sold. Nonfungible tokens
, or NFTs, are not interchangeable, as there is only one of each of them in the world. The most popular standard for such tokens is ERC-721
In addition to the gaming industry, trading platforms like OpenSea
have also launched NFTs
that are trading as collectibles.
The infrastructure around NFTs
is also in progress and offers work tools for the production and management of NFTs
. Another project, Codex Protocol
, founded in 2018, has developed a decentralized registry of unique assets such as art, rare liquor and antiques.
At the end of 2019, the Microsoft Azure
cloud platform released its own program called Azure Heroes
, aimed at rewarding its own developer community. The release and transactions of collectible items will be carried out on the Ethereum
network, which will allow the winners to keep them as NFTs
do have uses outside of gaming. For example, a famous musician can make a new album and sell each copy for a certain price. One million copies of the album can be created and sold through auction. As the copies begin to run out, the price of the remaining ones is likely to rise. In doing so, the goods and the ownership rights will not leave the internet.
🕹Crypto gaming is a very young sector. The entire ecosystem of developers and users still has a lot of work to do to get this idea to the masses and take root.
