3- Blockchain and Crypto, new frontiers of world gaming. What are we talking about, what are the advantages and disadvantages of using them and how can these new technologies help companies operate more easily in every part of the planet?

When trust on the ledger is created, a new class of asset called “Crypto” becomes available and the first creature is a digital asset called bitcoin. The creation of bitcoin has been only the beginning. With smart contracts alongside the maturing of blockchain technology, the new creatures of crypto assets has continue to explode beyond bitcoin — CryptoKitties, Etherbot, etc. The demand of a new computing platform for the gaming industry is driven new forces to unlocked potential use cases that were not possible before. Tokenization of virtual goods is just one example. With a distributed computing platform enabled by the blockchain technology, the game providers and players will be able to able to interact closer than ever before.

We are still in the early stages of the blockchain technology and the use cases within the gaming industry is still experimental. The second layer technology and ability to connect multiple blockchains synergistically will be the next milestone of technological advancements that we can foresee today. Creation of quality games will follow once the associated blockchain technology (and financial benefits) becomes accessible to the game developers. A new chain of gaming ecosystem will form in parallel during the whole process. Whoever can see the future coming will have the first mover advantage to leverage the new wave of network effects, which can potentially be bigger than the web 2.0 /3.0 combined in term of economical impact to our society.
