Bonuses and collectibles have been part and parcel of gaming for decades, and if cryptocurrencies do gain traction within the e-sports and gaming, we would see more tokens substituting the aforementioned bonuses. A poll conducted by @AriDavidPaul on Twitter showed that 40% of gamers preferred remittance and p2p payment. Subreddits have already been set up for crypto bounty hunters to meet up chat and share clues to the bounties.
Cryptocurrencies in gaming are still in its infancy stages but its adoption by popular games are increasing their exposure and opening up massive opportunities led by research, innovation and development. This can lead to widespread adoption especially in interactive games like popular MMORPGs, where features like in-game currencies are increasingly being tokenized into cryptocurrencies thereby creating a true p2p crypto-gaming experience. Gaming companies are continuing to embrace cryptocurrencies with the onset of continuous updates and developments in 2018, notable the ERC-721 protocol that enabled the creation of unique, ‘non-fungible’ tokens within the gaming ecosystem. The future seems optimistic for the crypto-gaming ecosystem!
