|Overview:||During the past couple of years, a lot has happened in the blockchain ecosystem. The most striking was the emergence of a small, but real, gaming ecosystem trying to use blockchain for the benefit of gamers. This talk aims to explain why and how Ubisoft decided to explore the blockchain's potential for games, despite the proliferation of buzzwords.The non technical part of the talk will be the occasion to share, in short, some basic advice to those who would like to explore the field by themselves. What does it mean to choose a decentralized mindset in a centralized world? What kind of protocol should you go for? In the technical part, the Strategic Innovation Lab's prototyping team "Les Makers" will present HashCraft. The project was built with one huge constraint - use blockchain as the chief online technology. The result was to make blockchain and procedural generation work together for best results.|
