New ‘Blockchain Game Alliance’ Gets Ubisoft Backing to Grow User Adoption, Reduce Toxicity
Ubisoft, the gaming giant, has recently taken an important step to use the blockchain technology in gaming. The company has become a part of the newly formed Blockchain Game Alliance consortium. The group, which was recently created, intends to develop a set of common standards that can be used for standards and practices for using the blockchain technology and video games.
Some other members of the consortium include Enjin, Fig, Alto, Ultra, Gimli and EverdreamSoft. The CEO of Ultra, Nicolas Gilot, has affirmed that the group is focused on boosting the stakeholders of the consortium with common blockchain standards.
He explains that the Blockchain Game Alliance advocates for universal standards in the gaming space that help to create transparent ecosystems and ensure economic viability.
Ubisoft is one of the largest game publishers in the world and it has been examining the blockchain technology for a while now. The company has also recently announced that it would look into how to apply the blockchain as part of its Strategic Innovation Lab.
Recently, Ubisoft has created Hashcraft, a Minecraft-inspired game that allows the players to design quests and challenges which are stored on a public chain.
