The integration of blockchain technology in traditional gaming has enabled players to trade in-game virtual assets through contracts or other competing players. Also, blockchain platforms use powerful data encryption technologies such as private key and public key to ensure secure crypto token transactions. This enables game service providers or game developers to monetize their gaming services properly. Such benefits are encouraging gaming companies to integrate blockchain technology into their products. For instance, in December 2018, Sony announced its plans to launch a blockchain-based video game for PlayStation 4 by the end of 2019. Similarly, in July 2018, Microsoft announced its plans to roll out blockchain technology for Xbox. These factors are expected to positively influence the growth of the global gaming market during the forecast period.
