a study confirms the enthusiasm of studios for NFTs

Electronic Arts, Ubisoft… and many other video game studios have recently expressed their interest in NFT, or non-fungible Token in French. If you are not familiar with this concept, know that it is a concept that makes digital objects unique, and not replaceable or duplicable.

NFTs are not unanimous in the world of gaming

A survey commissioned by the blockchain platform Stratis from the Insight Opinion institute surveyed 197 video game developers in the United States and the United Kingdom. The results are quite clear since it shows that 58% of companies are starting to use blockchain technology in their productions, while 47% have incorporated non-fungible tokens.

Respondents are particularly excited about the future of NFTs, and 72% of companies plan to use blockchain and NFTs in their own games, while 56% want to do so in the next 12 months.

Concretely, players could find their account in the NFTs by purchasing certain digital objects. Cointelegraph cites the example of a car in a racing game. As for the developers, the vision is different since it is a question of bringing gamers towards a “play-to-earn” trend. Clearly, the latter would be encouraged to play a game for longer, as soon as they are rewarded, including via gains, particularly in cryptocurrencies, obtained by participating.

Anyway, it should also be noted that NFTs are not unanimous in the video game industry. Several examples are there to attest to this, in particular that of Steam which decided to ban ” applications built on blockchain technology that results in or authorizes cryptocurrency and NFT exchanges ».

For its part, Discord, which wanted to add NFTs to its platform, preferred to give it up after some users had expressed their opposition.
