The latest episode of The GamesIndustry.biz Podcast is available to download now, and it focuses on the changing landscape of cryptocurrency and blockchain-based games and services.
For this discussion, we're joined by Reality Gaming Group co-founder Tony Pearce, whose team is working on Reality Clash - an augmented reality mobile shooter that allows users to buy and sell in-game weapons with real-world value.
Following a surge of interest in the technology at the tail end of 2017 and the headline-grabbing devaluing of prominent cryptocurrency Bitcoin - plus tales of scams and failed projects funded by Initial Coin Offerings - we look at how the opportunities for games firms have changed.
Pearce also reflects on what his company has learned in trying to establish the cryptocurrency behind Reality Clash, and updates the advice he offered GamesIndustry.biz readers a year ago on funding your game's development with an ICO.
