Gaming Is Now A US$300 Billion Market

Lockdown and restrictions imposed due to covid-19, and extra free time due to work from home, the gaming industry is growing at an unprecedented pace. According to a new report from Accenture, the full value of the gaming industry now exceeds $300 billion, more than the combined markets for movies and music. The report also revealed more than 400 million new gamers are expected by the end of 2023, bringing the total number of gamers to more than 3 billion globally.

While the industry offers immense opportunities, there are several barriers to entry, from legacy technologies limitations to steep operational costs, which is why more developers are turning to blockchain technology to bring decentralized gaming experiences directly to communities globally.

Blockchain To Completely Transform The Gaming world

“We believe that NFT’s will change the world of gaming as we know it,” states Ulti Arena CEO & Founder, Duke Vu. “Imagine every game in the future to be made on Blockchain – you can transfer any existing game items from one to another. Assets can be traceable and also unique – artists and developers will have new ways to monetize their creations and see how they’re used.”

Many organization are entering into the decentralized gaming space to explore this new space. In July, Huobi Eco Chain (HECO) launched a new accelerator program – HECO Gaming Accelerator – to expedite decentralized gaming. HECO Gaming Accelerator intends to provide emerging game developers with all the tools and resources they need to create and market their decentralized games.

In May, Animoca Brands, a Hong Kong-based blockchain gaming company, raised US$89 million at US$1 billion valuation, making it the newest blockchain unicorn in Asia. In May, another blockchain gaming firm Sky Mavis raised US$7.5 million in Series A funding led by Libertus Capital. Sky Mavis is the developer of one of the world’s most popular blockchain games, Axie Infinity.
