Blockchain technology is seemingly omnipresent—now, it’s even intersecting with the gaming world. Just in the last year alone, video game juggernauts like Final Fantasy developer Square Enix and Madden developer Electronic Arts, among many others, have all expressed interest in wading into the buzzing NFT and cryptocurrency waters.
As the blockchain continues to find more and more adopters thanks to social platforms like Twitter and Discord, people are searching for new ways to adapt this emerging technology for other uses. Simply put, people want to feel more ownership over the content they create and consume, hence the explosion of NFTs in early 2021 (disagreements over whether owning an NFT is really owning the genuine article notwithstanding).
The explosion of digital blockchain platforms is well known today for having significantly influenced the world of financial independence. We live in a world where major companies have taken to accepting popular cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin, Dogecoin, and Ethereum for legitimate transactions like they’re common USD.
