Gaming industry will become populer day by day in the blockchain. Today I would like to review XAYA: THE ULTIMADE BLOCKCHAIN GAMING PLATFORM.
WHAT IS XAYA?
"XAYA is an Ultimate Blockchain Gaming Platform, the result of several years of research and development into Blockchain gaming by the original pioneers. XAYA addresses both the existing gaming and cryptocurrency markets and further creates an entirely new market in the process through games created on top of the blockchain. This new market is attributable to the creation of new virtual universes and item trading possibilities that are substantially deeper and more flexible than other emerging and simple trading systems using smart contracts. XAYA is not simply an asset platform, it also allows for game worlds to run completely autonomous so that players will never lose their assets due to third party negligence. XAYA is a blockchain based on Namecoin. "
"In February 2014, XAYA released Huntercoin which is XAYA’s first project. In Huntercoin, every moves of players are recorded to the blockchain (Similar to Ethereum’s Smart Contract). XAYA solves the scaling issue with several innovative methods called Game Channels which is a fantastic idea." (For more information about Game Channels, you can check (https://www.ledgerjournal.org/ojs/index.php/ledger/article/view/15/64)
WHAT DID XAYA BRING NEW TO BLOCKCHAIN GAMING?
XAYA is the first decentralized massively multiplayer game and also the first game world built on the blockchain. XAYA is the first mining permissible cryptocurrency for regular people. These innovations can completely change the world of gaming.
WHAT’S THE PROBLEMS SOLVED BY XAYA?
There are two major aspects to the problem being solved.
"DEVELOPERS: Time and cost from concept to market for many new and independent developers is often prohibitive. It is commonly known that the majority of these developers are unable to reach the gaming market because of the aforementioned constraints. With appropriate developer tools and using the blockchain to create decentralised autonomous game universes, with a 24/7 uptime, the costs and setup time associated with servers or cloud based services are eliminated, as are the recurring costs, such as user account administration."
"GAMERS: In general there is a growing desire for increasingly rich virtual gaming universes in which virtual asset ownership is important for gamer status and progression through a particular game. In addition, the time and effort expended by the gamer could be rewarded beyond simple enjoyment alone and through the exchange of in-game virtual items for real world value or for virtual items available in another game."
The XAYA platform will provide a wealth of tools and infrastructure for game developers to build their own game worlds that fit their vision and project. They can fully leverage the XAYA technology to build decentralised games and issue their own game currency that can be traded for CHI or other XAYA game coins/assets secured by the XAYA blockchain.
