Gamers And Investors Bet Big On Cryptocurrency And Blockchain In The Gaming Industry


While Bitcoin struggles to make it above $7000, the value cryptocurrency can provide outside of the trading realm is becoming evident within the billion-dollar gaming industry.

Cryptocurrency and blockchain technology were hot topics during the Game Developers Conference (GDC) that took place in San Francisco last month. As I made my way through the record-breaking crowd of 28,000 industry professionals, I constantly heard “cryptocurrency” and “blockchain” being mentioned.

DMarket, a leading global marketplace that uses blockchain technology to transform virtual gaming items into real world assets, hosted a blockchain and gaming panel discussion during GDC. The purpose of the panel was to provide an explanation as to why cryptocurrency and blockchain technology are having an impact on the gaming sector, which is expected to become a $143 billion global industry by 2020.
