What Is Asobi Coin?
Massively multiplayer online role-playing games (MMORPGs) are a combination of role-playing video games and massively multiplayer online games in which a very large number of players interact with one another within a virtual world.

Asobi's New Blockchain MMORPG Online Role-Playing Game
Now, they are announcing an MMORPG developing ICO project that utilizes blockchain technology and the start of registration for their newsletter. With the accumulated knowledge of mobile MMORPG development, they are setting out to create a new kind of “Asobi” (roughly translates to play) that revolutionizes the online gaming market by making use of blockchain technology in-game.
Asobi Coin ICO Details
Asobi Coin is slated to be an ICO title or an Initial Coin Offering. At some point, before the game comes out, people will be able to invest in an in-game currency at a reduced price in the hopes that it will increase in value exponentially or pay itself forward once the game has launched. These types of currency are more typically used to purchase exclusive in-game items tied to the currency, buy other items that would normally cost a fortune, or accelerate player progress in some way. However, with such a unique fusion of ideas, it is impossible to tell exactly what the end result will be, but something along those lines of those in-game purchases will most likely be the case.
The fusion plan to utilize blockchain technology for MMORPG was announced in 2018 TOKENSKY Blockchain Conference Seoul, Asia’s largest blockchain conference.
The gaming industry is generally one of the most forward-leaning technology and they are doing so with the adoption of blockchain too. The details are currently scarce but the Tokyo-based company has stated it will be combining its decade-long experience in making mobile MMORPGs with blockchain technology to create a new way to play.
