Digital Games Conference

BLOCKCHAIN
DGC GAMES

A REVOLUTION IS COMING - DON’T MISS IT!

Digital Games Conference Dubai will host for the first time in the Middle East & Africa region a “Blockchain & Games” summit and Exhibition. This will run as part of the Digital Games Conference talks, exhibition and B2B meetings that gather developers, publishers, telcos , payment system providers, influencers and marketing agencies, servers companies and more. 

Blockchain technology and gaming holds great promise for the growth of both industries. Gamers are some of the early adopters of cryptocurrencies and Blockchains provide a useful tool for gamers for various reasons including decentralized asset exchanges, verifiable scarcity of virtual objects and collectibles, fast and secure payment networks, and an ability for developers to properly monetize their creations.

The most popular implementation of blockchain technology for gaming is with non-fungible assets. In gaming, these assets can be anything from game skins to virtual cards part of a specific game that are verifiably scarce.
The authenticity of individual virtual items is guaranteed using smart contract standards such as the ERC-721 non-fungible token standard and the newer ERC-1155 reference implementation.

Sponsorship , exhibiting and attending opportunities are now available and they give access to Digital Games Conference and the Blockchain & Games Summit and exhibition.
