The gaming industry is one of the many fields that could benefit massively from blockchain technology. Many game developers have already adopted the technology and are working on fascinating online games that will be completely decentralized.

Blockchain Game Summit 2018 is the first ever blockchain conference that will focus on the gaming industry and how it will change with the blockchain technology.

How gaming can benefit from the blockchain

Online gaming is a rapidly expanding industry, and with that kind of growth comes a lot of issues. Security has long been a concern for the gaming community, and the use of the blockchain will be able to remedy this issue. Certain game developers will also be rewarding gamers with cryptocurrency to incentivize their engagement. This has also been seen in other industries and will revolutionize the way we think about consumption of online media.

Blockchain Game Summit will host speakers that will present their thoughts on these subjects and many more.

Who is behind the Blockchain Game Summit?

The company behind this amazing event is the video game studio B2Expand, which has worked with Ubisoft’s startup program. Beyond the Void was their first game, and used a money system built on Ethereum’s blockchain. B2Expand has enlisted the help of Exoflow to organize the event, as they have created very successful events in the past.

I’m a freelance writer and full-time curious person. My main interests are philosophy, politics, art, culture, science, and how they’re all interlinked. When I’m not writing, I’m fronting a band, producing records, and making videos. I’m also currently working on launching a YouTube channel that will focus on culture and politics. I think blockchain technology is fascinating because of the huge potential it has to revolutionise not only the financial sector, but society as a whole.
