Embracing Disruption: What Blockchains Mean for the Game Industry


Genuinely new and innovative technologies don't come along very often but when they do, they're highly disruptive. Blockchains are a new and poorly understood technology, popularized by Bitcoin, which have the capacity to enable fundamental changes in the game industry. This isn't just talk of a potential future; a number of developers and tool providers are already successfully using blockchains in their projects, including for fundraising purposes. Initially, the audience will learn the basics of blockchains, subsequently proceeding to explore projects of the past, present and future of relevance to the game industry. The session includes coverage of currencies, fundraising and virtual property along with a discussion on what the future may hold for innovative business models throughout the game sector.
