This news is several weeks old, but worth mentioning for a number of reasons. In 2017 we saw the birth of Blockchain Games thanks to the extremely innovative CryptoKitties team. In 2018, we saw the market take off thanks to MANY innovative teams who jumped in to help push things forward.
All of this was built on Ethereum which has done amazing things in terms of showing the world what’s possible with blockchain. As we head into 2019, we are now seeing other blockchain protocols join the fray. New protocols like TRON, EOS, and WAVES are approaching the same problems in different ways, and hoping to help push this fledgeling market even further.
And with that, TRON recently announced a MASSIVE $100M blockchain game fund to help fuel innovation on the TRON protocol. This is amazing for the blockchain games community as it provides critical funding to allow even more developers to jump in and help us all push.
Having said that, it also shows that the future is still wide open. And what things look like in 5 – 10 years is anyone’s guess. But one thing we can say is we can expect a lot of cool things on TRON in 2019. And you can bet we’ll be following all the great new games this fund will hopefully spawn.
