This week we unstack with James Ho, Senior Business Strategist at Animoca Brands, a leading public game publisher headquartered in Hong Kong.
Animoca leverages gamification, blockchain, and AI to develop and publish a broad portfolio of gaming titles such as The Sandbox, F1 Delta Time, Garfield Games, Doremon Games etc.
► Animoca’s vision for the blockchain gaming ecosystem, a burgeoning subset within a $150billion gaming industry
► The current centralized free-to-play gaming model, which he describes is a walled garden approach to gaming
► Ways open-sourced blockchain games will disrupt this model, such as offering user-generated NFTs and ultimately enabling true digital ownership of virtual assets
► Token-based incentive mechanisms of blockchain games
