In fact, in addition to Tencent, there are many game makers that have already targeted the blockchain game.

NetEase has a long-standing interest in blockchain. As the first attempt in the blockchain field, NetEase Planet has not achieved the expected results, but it has allowed NetEase to accumulate rich experience in the blockchain field. In contrast, Suning’s “Star Home” appears to be slightly cottage.

Ubisoft, which has created masterpieces such as Assassin's Creed, Cell Division, Prince of Persia, Lehman Series, Rainbow Six, Watchdog, etc., established a strategic innovation experiment in early 2018. One of the secret projects that began research and development is a blockchain product. The game was officially released in September 2018 – "HashCraft" , which was influenced by "My World" and also joined "Nobody." Part of the gameplay in Deep Space and Fortress Night.

According to the published picture, its gameplay is more like a big escape game with UGC content. The combination with the blockchain is that all the content in the game is stored in the chain, and the data belongs to the community, not Ubisoft. Server.

Coincidentally, on November 19, 2018, blockchain gaming company Mythical Games received investment from Galaxy Digital EOS VC and OKCoin, a blockchain gaming company formed by former Blizzard, Activision and Yahoo executives and employees. To a certain extent, it has released the signals that capital and traditional game giants are optimistic about blockchain games, and even the media has called "the foreign blizzard regular army has quietly entered."

Most of the team's members are composed of Ubisoft and in-fusio's former employees. Mixmarvel has also received tens of millions of dollars in financing with The Blockchainer. It is committed to becoming a game publishing platform, in addition to self-developed games, it will also be connected. Entering an external game becomes a traffic entry.

The entry of these head game makers may be an important breakthrough for blockchain technology for the public.

Games are an excellent opportunity to popularize the blockchain to the public

As mentioned in the previous section, " The Opportunity of Blockchain Users from 20 Million to 2.7 Billion ", Facebook's entry will bring a billion-level increment to the blockchain. Tencent, the number of users worldwide, also exceeds 1 billion. Through the game, the blockchain can reach a huge number of users, and the blockchain technology will be gradually popularized to these people.

At the same time, the game as an industry with a much lower threshold than finance is not subject to various restrictions and is more easily accepted by the public. Therefore, many people believe that games may be an important breakthrough for blockchain technology for the masses .

The Blockchainer has also realized this early, and has fully deployed and opened the blockchain game field from the release, single CP, development platform, public chain, wallet, payment channel, trading platform, chain travel industry fund, etc. Industry chain.


The appearance of "Catch the Demon Together" symbolizes the traditional interest of the traditional game giants in the blockchain game, and also marks that the blockchain game has been separated from the original closed circle and began to face the public. We also look forward to more formal military admissions in the next phase, allowing blockchain games to become a new commercial civilization involving hundreds of millions or even billions of people from a speculative market involving tens of thousands of people.
