Epic Games’ Fortnite Video Game Could Transition onto Blockchain via MagnaChain Partnership
Gamers Could Soon Start PLaying Fortnite On The Blockchain
There are some reports that say that the blockchain creator and toolset MagnaChain could be ‘changing the rules of the game.’ Apparently, there is a possibility to be playing Fortnite on the blockchain in the near future.
MagnaChain has created in the past a blockchain platform specifically designed for video games. The company says that the network is capable of handling over 100,000 transactions per second, several times more than the most important blockchain projects in the market.
If the company behind Fortnite, Epic Games is approaching to MagnaChain, it means that there is a real interest in using blockchain technology in order to improve the gaming experience. If the company decides to use blockchain technology, it could have very positive impacts in the game and in the community.
MagnaChain explains that they want to change the face of a host of industries and several business sectors. The gaming industry can also help blockchain to reach the masses and a wide range of users.
According to MagnaChain, the network they have developed is decentralized and has limitless network scaling potential. In a testnet performed by the company, the network is able to handle over 13,000 transactions per second, but the scaling potential could help this number grow over ten times.
At the moment, Bitcoin and Ethereum are trying to solve their scaling issues before the next bull run starts. These networks have experienced transaction delays and elevated fees for transacting just a few dollars. If one of these networks is embraced by Fortnite, it would simply cause networks to collapse.
MagnaChain has been specifically designed to handle large blockchain-based games, so it should be able to handle Fortnite without issues. However, the results could also be adverse if some issues arise.
As blockchain and cryptocurrency interest grow, in the future, the most important games and companies could start to embrace blockchain technology. This would clearly change the way in which millions of players interact with their favourite games.
