'Blockchain Technology could change our world more than people imagine'.

This was the famous quote from the Chinese business magnate Jack Ma.

His point of view on blockchain technology shows the importance of this revolutionary technology in this world. While combining this tech with games it becomes more powerful and reliable.

In this blog post, we'll learn why an increasing number of individuals are selecting blockchain games over traditional computer games. A table outlining the key differences between the two categories of games will also be available.

Blockchain Games (DApps)

Let's first define what blockchain games are. They use blockchain technology as an extremely safe and transparent ledger. This technology guarantees that the game's content is safe, understandable, and difficult to alter. Blockchain games feature smart contracts, essentially coded versions of self-operating contracts, unlike traditional computer games. There are various Blockchain Game Development Companies that provide advanced support in this segment.

Reasons for Picking Blockchain Games

Having Stuff in the Game:

Blockchain Games (DApps): In these games, the stuff you earn is yours. In-game and outside of it, items can be purchased, sold, and exchanged. The idea of non-fungible tokens (NFTs) makes it possible.

Regular Computer Games: The items you acquire in these games aren't truly yours. They have no significance outside of the game and exist purely for it.

Decentralization and Security:

Blockchain Games (DApps): Blockchain technology makes everything that happens in the game public to all players. It is extremely tough to cheat or tamper with the game as a result. In addition, blockchain makes sure everything is safe.

Regular Computer Games: In these games, everything is kept on a big computer, and that can sometimes be hacked. This makes it less safe, and players can be worried about their accounts and stuff getting messed with.

Earning Money:

Blockchain Games (DApps): You can make money by playing well in these games. The best part is, that this money is real and can be changed into actual money you can use. Also, the people who make the game can fairly earn money through special platforms.

Regular Computer Games: Usually, you can only spend money inside the game or watch ads. Players can't earn real money from their actions in the game.

Participating in a Group and Making Choices:

Blockchain Games (DApps): Players can participate in the decision-making process in these games. Players can vote on adjustments and other matters, giving the game a sense of community.

Regular Computer Games: In most regular games, the people who make the game decide everything. While users have limited influence over how the game is developed, players can converse on forums and social media.

Using Things in Different Games:

Blockchain Games (DApps): Blockchain makes it easy for things you have in one game to be used in another game. This makes playing different games more fun and interesting.

Regular Computer Games: Usually, things you get in one game can't be used in another. The stuff you collect stays in that game only.

The Bottomline:

‘Statistics won’t lie, right? That’s why I have come up with some interesting market value for blockchain gaming. The size of the global blockchain gaming market, measured by sales, exceeded $4.6 billion in 2022 and is expected to reach over $65.7 billion by the end of 2027. This represents a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 70.3% for the forecast period of 2022–2027.

This change is because blockchain technology brings some advanced features to the gaming world. Another good thing is that blockchain games are not controlled by just one company, so players have more say in what happens. This freedom from big control and censorship makes gaming more enjoyable for everyone.
