72% of Game Designers Would Consider NFTs and Blockchain Elements for New Games
Game designers are playing with the idea of adding blockchain technology and non-fungible token (NFT) functionality and rewards to their future games. That’s according to new research funded by Stratis, a leading blockchain platform. The study found that more than half (58%) of 197 video game developers surveyed in the U.S. and U.K. are now beginning to use blockchain technology. While nearly half (47%) of respondents claim to have already begun incorporating NFTs in their games.
“We commissioned this research to solidify what we already assumed — that blockchain and NFTs are the future of video games,”
stated Chris Trew, CEO, Stratis, in the company’s press release.
“From our own experience supporting AA game developers, we know first-hand how these technologies are already beginning to improve the player experience by rewarding players with the ability to earn real-world value.”
Demonstrating an appetite for blockchain and NFTs, 72% of respondents said they would consider using these technologies for new games with 56% planning to do so in the next 12 months.
