Correlation Between Gaming and Blockchain Technology

The idea of collaboration between Gaming and blockchain technology have stirred the gaming market. Cryptocurrencies have fuelled gamers’ enthusiasm by offering means to buy in-game items using digital tokens. The option or feature of buying in-game items with real money has been there for quite some time but due to its risky nature, a huge number of alert gamers have avoided it. This flaw formed due to the duplicators, scammers have long attracted blockchain enthusiasts. With the help of blockchain, users can retain ownership of in-game items and through transparently secure transactions, blockchain could perfect the feature completely.

  • Direct Advantages of the Partnership

In this scenario, TRON has accelerated the revolution by announcing a strategic partnership with BitGuild which is in the blockchain gaming industry. It’s owned by gaming and cryptocurrency expert Jared, the founder of gaming platform ‘Reality Squared Games’ and live video game streaming platform ‘Livestar’ (in the year of 2016). Jared has been a dedicated virtual currency and gaming aficionado since 2009 when he founded the first virtual currency consulting firm called ‘Niubility’ in 2009. Through this daring partnership, TRON has made a concrete standing in the entertainment world through online gaming territory.

  • The Aim of the Collaboration

The aim is to provide freedom to the entertainment industry from the influence of middleman who exists between a gaming artist and player whilst transference of digital assets. This new team-up between TRON and BitGuild is supposed to allow gamers buy in-game items with TRONix(TRX) safely and get back the ownership of its use in game worlds however they please. Now, it’s possible for a user to receive an epic item/loot in the game and then either transfer it to some other user or keep it saved if they wish so that TRON’s blockchain technology will eliminate even the remote chances of fraud, misuse, and scams.

  • About TRON and BitGuild

According to TRON’s founder and CEO, Justin Sun, “the company has always prioritized online gaming at the core of online development” and it became evident when they declared the upcoming blockchain projects in cooperation with BitGuild. TRON has always been in the limelight owing to its stable and incessant growth. The currency is ranked as 15th top digital currency in the market according to Coinmarketcap.com and its total market cap is nearly $3.4 Billion while it’s total circulating supply rests at 66 Billion TRX as per the Coinmarketcap data at the time of writing this article. (16th March 2018)

  • TRON’s Aim

TRON’s blockchain based protocol is all set to create an independent content entertainment system with the aid of its unique distributed storage technology. The former chief representative for Greater China of Ripple, Justin Sun is smartly transforming TRON’s goals from whitepaper to real events. With their recent Main net launch update dubbed as ‘Exodus’, the company has cleared their target of becoming one of the most formidable digital currency in the market ruled by Bitcoin, Ethereum, and Ripple.

  • What to Expect from TRON and BitGuild?

Through this partnership, BitGuild is about to offer exclusive in-game assets to the TRON community as limited edition set. These assets can be purchased by TRX and thus represent TRON brand. At the instant of purchase, the items will be directly sent to the player’s digital wallet using blockchain technology and finish a completely secure digital transaction. But it’s different from traditional exchanges and blockchain solutions such as DMarket according to BitGuild’s founder Jared Psigoda. In his own words; “The current real money trade websites allow gamers to purchase the ‘right to use an item’ and not the item itself. There’s no tokenization of the item taking place on blockchain which gives way to frauds and scams to sneak in. But with the application of blockchain, we can reverse the volatility of in-game resources at present”. BitGuild recently announced its ICO that’s slated for April during which users can buy The BitGuild token called PLAT.

  • Closing Thoughts

By teaming up with the gaming-veteran team of BitGuild, TRON expects to turn gears in today’s excessively bearish cryptocurrency market. It is safe to say that both TRON and BitGuild expect to broaden the horizons of blockchain online gaming platform via this partnership. Although being a volatile digital asset that is subjected to market risks, TRX is experiencing a slant at present when its total market cap has come to $1.9. Therefore, it is immature to comment on how this collaboration will reflect on the days to come.

Xeno Holdings Limited (xno.live ), a blockchain solutions company based in Hong Kong, has announced the listing of its ecosystem utility token XNO on the ‘Bithumb Korea’ cryptocurrency exchange on January 21st 2021.

The Xeno NFT Hub project team includes former members of the technology project Yosemite X based in San Francisco and professionals such as Gabby Dizon who is a games industry expert and NFT space influencer based in Southeast Asia.

NFT(Non-Fungible Token) technology has recently gained huge focus in the blockchain arena and beyond, making waves in the online gaming sector, the art world, and the digital copyrights industry in recent years. The strongest feature of NFTs is that “NFTs are unique digital assets that cannot be replaced or forged”. Unlike fungible tokens such as Bitcoin or Ether, NFTs are not interchangeable for other tokens of the same type but instead each NFT has a unique value and specific information that cannot be replaced. This fact makes NFTs the perfect solution to record and prove ownership of digital and real-world items like works of art, game items, limited-edition collectibles, and more.

NFTs are already being actively traded in markets globally. For…

Should Crypto Projects Devote Resources to Community Growth and Marketing?

Published

2020 has been an incredible year for crypto as investors have generated windfall profits and crypto projects have seen their businesses gain the spotlight they’ve been looking for.  While Bitcoin has received most of the attention after major institutional investors announced they were accumulating the increasingly scarce asset, many altcoins have also seen their fair share of glory.  When looking at all the big winners of the past year, the first project that probably comes to mind is Chainlink, having appreciated by more than 550% YTD and now valued at over $4.5 billion.  But, the actual biggest winner of the year is HEX with a YTD return of over 5,000%.

I mention both of the above projects as they have each taken slightly different paths to achieve greatness.  Chainlink has devoted resources toward building a fundamentally sound business with many strategic partnerships while HEX has spent vast sums of money on marketing and promotion.  Both approaches are valid, but one thing is certain, it is absolutely imperative for crypto projects to let the crypto community know what makes them special.  Of course, one of the reasons that makes crypto so valuable is the powerful blockchain technology that most projects are utilizing.

Cryptocurrency vs. Blockchain Technology

It’s important to make a distinction between blockchain technology and cryptocurrency.  Although they are often used interchangeably, they are different.  Blockchain technology and crypto were both created after the 2008 financial crisis, but cryptocurrency…
