AKASHA Innovation Hub, SORS Digital Assets and eosDublin are excited to present a panel discussion on Monday 2nd March covering the topic of Gaming and Digital Assets.
What are NFTs and how are they or will they affect the world of gaming?
An NFT (non-fungible token) is a unique representation of an asset or good in the form of a virtual token. Through cryptography, they help to verifiably prove ownership and authenticity of an asset.
The increasing intersection of the gaming industry with cryptocurrencies has seen a number of advances in the concept of non-fungible assets. The WAX platform allows users to trade NFTs in a decentralised marketplace and even create their own virtual stores. Decentraland, the virtual 3D platform built on Ethereum, allows users to purchase unique plots of land and build whatever they want on them, from dapps to unique digital structures.
Our panel will discuss the evolving world of NFTs and gaming and what the future holds.
