The advantages of Web3 gaming

Web3 gaming, which relies on blockchain technology and other decentralisation-related innovations, offers several advantages over traditional gaming.
Real ownership of digital assets:With Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs), and other blockchain technologies, players can own elements of the game, such as characters, weapons, terrain, etc. This ownership can be verified, traded and sold outside the game itself using the blockchain.
Interoperability: Game objects in the form of tokens can be used in multiple games or platforms. For example, an NFT purchased in one game could potentially be used as an object or aesthetic element in another game.
Community participation:With mechanisms such as decentralised autonomous organisations (DAOs), communities can participate in the management of a game, propose modifications or fund new developments.
Resistance to censorship:Decentralisation makes it difficult for a single entity or authority to censor or disrupt the game or its economy.
Gameplay innovations:The ability to have game elements based on blockchain can open the door to new gameplay mechanics, evolving narratives, and enriched user experiences.
