Gaming industry vs Crypto
In the last couple of years, many gaming companies showed their inclination toward crypto & blockchain technology. The majority of the gaming companies introduced NFTs-based characters & character wearable items for the games.
Most of the gamers criticized such steps by the gaming companies and said that gaming companies want to make money for nothing because NFTs & crypto are only annoying things, which are not needed to introduce in the gaming sector.
Due to such increasing criticism, few gaming companies planned to bring a much better & more useful crypto & crypto-related technology support in a separate new gaming platform, so that gamers can understand the value of blockchain technology in real manners.
