Decentralized Gaming

Blockchain gaming, or dApp gaming, is an innovative industry booming particularly in Asia but popular worldwide. Gaming itself is far from new, hence there is a (good) existing market for in-game features that are auctioned on P2P marketplaces at price levels that can be considerably high for items that serve merely for decoration and don’t provide any benefits to the player.

Decentralized games make use of blockchains that make it easier to deploy in-game assets; be it the fungible tokens (in-game money) or the non-fungible ones (in-game assets, such as collectibles). Some consider dApp gaming to be the blockchain’s killer app, at least for the time being.

This in turn drives user participation, earnings and also the innovative development that can spill over to other areas of the blockchain tech industry.
