Gaming is serious business and blockchain is a natural platform for bringing both parts of the equation together. For one, the constant evolution of gaming has nurtured an openness within players to embrace new, sometimes experimental modes of gameplay, which can be built on blockchain technology.
At the same time, it’s a way for game developers to push the boundaries of gaming design and mechanics while expanding their player base and revenue streams. NFTs, for instance, introduce an entirely new set of gamification possibilities, paving the way for exclusive items to be minted, rented for use in gameplay, or sold on in-game marketplaces.
Zilliqa is on a mission to realise these opportunities by developing relationships with, and technology for game developers to bring them onto our blockchain — and we’ve just got the right man to do it.
Valentin Cobelea joins the team as Head of Gaming Technology. He will lead the business and technology aspects of Zilliqa’s gaming strategy, and the team are already creating means for gaming studios to easily build games on the Zilliqa blockchain.
