Distributed ledger: the future of Web3 games?

Time : 26/10/2021 Author : 3ofuys Click : + -
        Distributed ledger (i.e. blockchain) seems to be the cornerstone of future games. As players have the expectation that they should get rewards when using the platform, in response, developers also design non additional and fair token rewards as the core function of the game. Such token rewards can only be provided by distributed ledgers, when people can earn as much from Web3 games as a full-time job. At present, the valuation of the e-sports industry has reached US $1 billion and increased by 50% in 2021. If these competitions and audiences are transferred to the blockchain, their scale will only be larger. In the next 10 years, with the addition of virtual reality components, players will also gain a more realistic and immersive experience.
 
        Decentralized games have outstanding advantages. The information is anonymous and secure, and there will be no tracking and sales data to third parties. In addition, the blockchain eliminates the problem of double expenditure, which means that there will be no fraud in the credit lending system of traditional currency payment. In addition, at present, if developers want to sell games through other large centralized platforms such as Google, Microsoft, apple and steam, they will be charged more than 30%, which is considered unreasonable by most developers. In essence, this is because the profit distribution in web2 games is controlled by the strong party, which makes it profitable. At the same time, the rewards to game developers are not enough.
 
        In addition, because there is no real power, end users will also be charged a premium. But all this will change in the Web3 era. Because the development cost of Web3 game is very low, end users can also obtain tokens or NFT to increase their share and make management decisions for the future of the game. Considering these factors, it is not surprising that developers turn to Web3 in large numbers. Web3 is committed to building a game community and breaking the monopoly, and collaboration is the symbol of decentralized game development. Despite its many benefits, there are still obstacles to overcome. The token system must be accurate to prevent a few users from being too strong. In addition, it must strike a balance between developers, players, investors and distribution channels.
 
        The problem is not investors or marketers, but when they may have too much influence. After all, these people will also be needed for truly successful games. It's not easy to strike a balance between rewards and a great gaming experience. If, in the end, games like axieinfinity focus more on investment rather than gameplay, it is certainly not the way developers want. Rewards should be a by-product of recreational game activities, not the main reason for participating in the game. It may seem that there is little difference between the two, but what we want should be "play and earn rewards", rather than "play for the sake of earning rewards". In addition, there are still some technical problems to be solved.
 
        Due to the network congestion of Ethereum, games like cryptokitties cost a lot of gas fees. Other blockchains such as Solana and polygon may be faster, cheaper and more scalable. Although this technology is widely sought after in terms of scalability and efficiency, the development of many blockchain games is relatively slow due to the existing smart contracts. In the context of the popularity of online games, it may only be a matter of time to launch a solution to jump from web2 to Web3 games. API will greatly facilitate the implementation of this aspect. It connects the established game development environment with blockchain to facilitate production.
 
        But some suppliers go further. Ankr is a provider of decentralized infrastructure for Web3 developers, enterprises and stakeholders. At present, ankr is launching its own blockchain game software development kit (SDK). Ankr blockchain SDK allows game developers to develop based on unity and unreal engines. For many passionate developers, this is a dream come true. They can build games on familiar engines and easily make games compatible with Web3. This will also bring many benefits, including encrypted wallet, NFT, decentralized market, Multi Chain interoperability, mobile optimization and easy integration of alternative financing through token.
 
        Ankr is further promoting the use of subnets, which allows developers to create their own games based on personal (sub) chains. With the development of Web3 game environment, this function may become more prominent because of the benefits of efficiency, scalability and customization. Developing on Web 3 may sound a little difficult, but it's much easier than you think. It does not require high professional knowledge, but it needs patience and interest. For example, whether you are a developer, engineer or student, you can build an NFT based browser game through buildspace and make you familiar with decentralized applications (dapps) and the rich NFT and cryptocurrency ecosystem.
 
        Most importantly, you can work with developers in a fixed communication channel and always complete game development as a team. You can also use traditional engines like unreal or unity and connect them to Web3 through the SDK available (currently very limited). Another way is to develop your own decentralized application on Ethereum. You can use Web3 JS application realizes this, which allows smart contract interaction through JavaScript. When DAPP runs smart contracts, you need to learn to write code (usually through solidity) to start Web3 development.
 
        All dapps have three core components: front end, wallet and smart contract. Although Ethereum still dominates the NFT and game markets, this may not always be the case. Starting from Ethereum is feasible, but its scalability and pricing efficiency are relatively low. Solana may be a relatively optimized chain with better speed, efficiency and scalability. In addition, people are familiar with polygon, which has also made many acquisitions and cooperation in the field of Web3 games. In any case, future Web3 games will involve interoperability between blockchains and sub chains, which allows developers to develop customized games for their target users.
 
        Through distributed ledger technology, players and developers will also see a fairer reward mechanism and a higher level of game works.
