Since a couple of years, I've meet video games developers in Bitcoin Conferences and crypto meetups. The ideas and proof-of-concepts are interesting but I always pointed out the lack of graphics quality. I wanted to share with the Mapcore Community know for (imo) some of the best game dev in the world and artist like HP, Thomas Hess, Minos, Peris 'volatillllllllllllle' scope, Moroes and so on!
- What are your stance on it guys?
- Who is/would be interested in adding crypto in video games?
- I would be really interested about your idea/concept that could be developed. Any cool use cases idea to share?
Here's some interesting project using the Lightning Network. As a reminder the LN is a second layer working on top of Bitcoin which allow micro-transaction applications (through HTLC Smart contract) using the most secure and neutral network in the world: Bitcoin protocol.
- MandelDuck (from Japan) doing interesting games such as Takara where you can give bitcoins and find bitcoins.
Aside Bitcoin, there is Ethereum a non scriptless script platform (less efficient than Bitcoin in terms of code simplicity and more centralized dev core team and consensus).
And the famous Cryptokitties...
Last but not least there is other centralized platform such as EOS in Asia who are pretty well known for cheap in-game transaction. Wouldn't recommend for lack of sovereignty on your digital asset (the lower the blocktime, the more the consensus system will be centralized).
Ps: Could have named this thread "DeFi + Video games" which stand for "Decentralized Finance". There is good article on this topic here.
