The virtual currency that works on the Augmentors platform is known as Databits (DTB), which is the 619th largest with a market capitalization of $1.5 million and a price of $0.066. Users in the game can work to enhance the arsenal of their characters and have player-vs-player battles. During the battles users play, they can leverage their attack and defence abilities and improve their characters.
This is very important for the game since it has been launched less than 3 months ago for iOS and Android devices.
There are many games that are being created on top of blockchain technology. Perhaps the most popular is CryptoKitties that congested the Ethereum network at the end of the last year.
The game developer called Arcade Distillery announced hat is working in order to launch a new game for PS4 built on top of the Ethereum (ETH) network.
In the future, new blockchain-based games could be released to the market allowing users to own their items and know that they are the owners of the characters they have.
