The basis for cryptocurrencies. and the NFT non-fungible tokens (NFTs) are cryptocurrencies that do not possess the property of fungibility. have a future in the gaming industry as long a situation where you buy a cryptocurrency with the expectation of selling it at a higher price for profit later. as they are introduced from the perspective of real benefit to the player.
The former president of Nintendo and one of the most iconic figures in the world of video games, Reggie Fils-Aime, recently spoke out in favour of Blockchain and the NFT, to which he predicted a very good future within the ecosystem of the gaming.
Former Nintendo president says he is enthusiastic about Blockchain
Fils-Aime, during a panel at this week’s event. SXSW, revealed to be an enthusiast and believer in Blockchain, calling it a truly compelling technology that could radically change change — a concept relevant to cryptocurrencies that use the UTXO model — is the number of coins sent back to a user after they use their unspent outputs to initiate a transaction. the way gamers interact with their favorite titles, even allowing them to be rewarded for the time and effort they put into playing their favorite titles.
“I also believe in the concept of ‘Play to Earn’ within video games. And I say that as a gamer who may have put 50 hours into one game, 100 hours into another, and there are some titles I’ve spent over 300 hours on. When I’m ready to move on, wouldn’t it be great to monetize what I’ve built?
Animal Crossing: A possible use case
To further exemplify his idea, Fils-Aime said that a good example of what he was referring to could be seen in the popular game Animal Crossing: New Horizonthe latest installment in one of the most beloved franchises in the world. Nintendo en la cual los jugadores deben crear una isla y comercializar artículos en línea, con lo cual generar fondos para reinvertir en los terrenos en cuestión.
According to the former president of Nintendo, the island ofAnimal Crossing that he himself designed, developed and put so much effort into would be an item that perhaps many players would be willing to buy. Therefore, he believes that the fairest thing to do would be to allow him and other users of the game to trade their islands in order to somehow monetize the time they invested in the game:
“I bet there would be some takers if I wanted to sell my Animal Crossing island from the most recent Nintendo Switch version. I’d like to be able to monetize that.”
Give them to Blockchain a fun approach
If the idea of digital digital technologies are these electronic tools that have the ability to generate, store or even process data. collectibles is already (NFT) is controversial, today it is even more so within the traditional video game ecosystem, as many have the perspective that interested companies only want to exploit the concept and find new ways to monetize without offering something of real value to players.
It is for this same reason that companies such as Ubisoft have generated a lot of rejection among the players interested in the NFT, ya que la idea de introducir coleccionables estéticos monetizables no hace que la jugabilidad de las franquicias asociadas se vea mejorada.
In this regard, Fils-Aime made it clear that in order for Blockchain to succeed in this industry, it’s important that it’s an implementation that makes real sense to the player:
“It can’t just be an approach by the developer [who thinks] it’s interesting or it’s a way to make more money. In the end it has to be good for the player. But I see an opportunity there.”
Although Fils-Aime is no longer a part of Nintendo, To date, the company he used to run has not expressed any plans to incorporate this type of technology into its products and services, although there is interest in the idea of the metaverse. But on the side of GameStop, company to which it belonged until very recently, it seems that it will try to enter the NFT sector through a marketing platform a place to buy, sell and store cryptocurrency for digital collectibles.
