So welcome to my blog where I'll be trying to dissect and unravel the mystery that is Blockchain Gaming as I explore it myself. I've got a full time job and full time passion I'm pursuing (I'm a high school teacher, and I'm trying to start a cat sanctuary which will be THE FIRST animal sanctuary in the entire region, closest vet clinic used to be 5 hours away, yeah, it's terrible) so I don't actually have much time to spend on this. And if you do too (don't have much time to study these things in depth) welcome to the party because these posts are for you. I'll be keeping things simple here and I'll mostly just be writing about games that I'm invested in, how to play them, and how to earn from them.
For the sake of being honest with myself and just throwing it out there: I'm a noob, here trying to help fellow noobs navigate this crazy crazy world. Together maybe we'll make a few dollars while having a good time and really what more can I ask for. Let's go!
Since this is my first post let's just get the basic out there, so yeah Blockchain Gaming has 2 main selling points:
1. Investment perspective. Gaming in itself is a growing, lucrative industry, and blockchain is poised to change the way games are played and basically revolutionize the way things are done. Mass adoption is always one of the biggest what ifs, and gaming is one of those things that have strong potential of turning it from a what if to a what is. And if you believe that, you're going to want to bet your money on it.
2. Gaming perspective. These are, at the end of it all, games. The blockchain aspect of these things will run in the background and most of the people using this technology will not pay too much attention to it. The blockchain games will live and die on the appeal of the game itself. We all know logic doesn't always apply. Some games are elegantly designed, have amazing storylines, have depth and meaning, and will still not compare to something like Flappy Bird. They're games, and people are crazy for games because they're fun. Sometimes because they're frustrating, sometimes because they're challenging, and sometimes because they're senseless.
Those two things together make for a crazy crazy reality. Most of the world still can't wrap its head around the idea of playing for a living, of professional gamers making more than professional athletes, of earning from games. There's so much potential and so much to be hyped about.
Play to Earn setups still sound like a dream. Please don't be a dream.
