Yesterday Waves, the dApp platform and ecosystem offered up 1 million of their native cryptocurrency, WAVES, to any game developer who would build on their platform.
In order to qualify for (almost) $2 million in compensation, the game developers must have either an existing or prototype blockchain based-game (in development or already deployed) and be willing to transfer them to the Waves platform.
This follows the recent integration of smart contracts into the platform. According to the post, this development is being followed up by the creation of non-fungible tokens, a key element to the blockchain gaming industry. Due to this, a key requirement is the ability to develop a game in which a tokenized assets are offered.
the idea behind the initiative is to showcase the versatility of Waves tech in order to generate further adoption, Sasha Ivanov, Waves Founder and CEO elaborated further:
“I believe that the gaming sector will be an enthusiastic adopter of blockchain, and will drive its widespread use. Given the mutual opportunity here, we are more than ready to reward developers for the effort they make in implementing their projects within Waves ecosystem,”.
This push into the $100 billion gaming industry comes as no surprise. At the start of this month, Chepicap took to the Global Blockchain Forum to report on some of the most talked about topics in crypto. One such discussion focused upon blockchain adoption, citing gaming as one of the top industries that will drive mass adoption of both crypto and blockchain.
