Vietnam is a developing country. This country is leading the trend of blockchain technology. The application of blockchain to games has created a breakthrough for the video game industry. So what is a blockchain game? Is blockchain game development easy? Let’s find out through this article.

I. What are blockchain games?

1. What is Blockchain?

Blockchain is considered a digital ledger that stores transactions that are copied and distributed across an entire network of computer systems on the blockchain. With blockchain technology, each block in the chain contains several transactions. Every time a new transaction occurs on the blockchain, a record of that transaction is added to the ledger of all participants.

2. Game blockchain

Blockchain games are game genres built on the blockchain platform. Blockchain technology allows players to have full ownership of their assets in the game and can buy, sell, and trade NFTs (Non-Fungible Token) or cryptocurrencies with other players.

According to Statista (One of the largest statistics portals in the world), when asked about the impact of blockchain in the gaming industry, 23% of respondents said that blockchain has made games much more secure and reliable.

3. Example

DeFi Warrior is an example of a blockchain game because it is built on blockchain. In particular, the game also combines elements of DeFi (Decentralized Finance), NFT, and Metaverse.

In addition, DeFi Warrior makes a special point when incorporating blockchain elements into the game, creating a miniature crypto world. From there, players can better understand how the platform works vividly.

II. How to develop a blockchain game

To be able to start developing a blockchain game, a developer needs to have a good understanding and mastery of blockchain, the economy of cryptocurrencies, smart contracts, etc.

The economic model in the game is one of the important factors that help attract players.

  • Team DevOps: Responsible for development and operation, ensuring the system works stably.

Refer to the steps of blockchain game development below.

– Blockchain game market research

Many blockchain application games have been created and serve the diverse interests of players. You need to learn about the games currently on the market, and evaluate their strengths and weaknesses so that you can build a blockchain game that is different from the existing games.

– Choose blockchain infrastructure

One of the key things to consider is choosing the right blockchain language and platform.

For example, Ethereum is a very popular blockchain platform for conducting cryptocurrency transactions and designing blockchain-based applications.

– Come up with ideas

– Solve economic problems

The economic problem between investment capital and profit and how to make the game profitable.

– Smart contract development

After reviewing the smart contracts of the competitors. The blockchain game development team should code new smart contracts. These contracts help deliver NFTs and enhance game security.

– Community building

During game development, it is necessary to build a community and carry out marketing activities to attract people to know about the game and participate before officially releasing the game.

– Release NFTs, tokens

When players buy NFT, the publisher will have more capital to continue to serve the game development process.
