Cryptocurrency and gaming

Blockchain and cryptocurrency technologies are used in a wide range of applications: in finance, banking industry, to verify the identity of data and documents. In addition, it should be mentioned that these technologies have the potential to completely change the way we are used to gaming:

  • A specialized marketplace for selling, buying, and exchanging such digital assets on blockchain appears.
  • The cryptographic data protection technology used in cryptoensures the integrity and security of gaming objects, while at the same time confirming ownership.
  • The black market is of no use to anyone. Cryptocurrency allows game developers to legally sell gaming items with minimum or zero commissions.
  • The technology behind cryptomakes rare gamingitems even more valuable and rare.
  • Receiving payments in cryptocurrencysaves a lot of money on processing payments for game developers.
  • Every transaction is recorded in the blockchain, which is extremely important to prevent gaming fraud.
