In blockchain games, players act as individual miners and nodes on a distributed ledger maintained by a central server. Players can interact with each other through a messaging system to track the progress of their ledgers. Players compete with each other to mine the most blocks while protecting against network spam by blocking transactions for unnecessary fees. The player builds the next block and builds the network by effectively calculating the mathematically unique identifier (hash) and collating the fees to be paid by protecting the ledger from network attacks. .. This may sound complicated and difficult, but not because of the work. A study by the Cryptosphere Research Foundation that the creators behind blockchain games have created new entrants in the world of in-game currency and monetary systems.

In fact, much of the inspiration for Blockchain Game’s in-game mechanics came directly from the work done by Cryptocomp News. This group is an online academic research group working on the creation of new blockchain prototypes and implementations. This group has released a white paper and reference implementation called The Blockchain Virtual Private Database. Cryptocomp News has released a follow-up paper explaining working with the same model used in Blockchain Game. This treatise emphasizes that blockchain games are multiplayer online games that work the same way multiplayer browsers work, with players joining and leaving the game on a regular basis. .. Players can choose to participate directly in the game or interact within a “virtual world” that mimics the real world online. Players can build their own virtual world in a variety of ways, including creating their own blocks and linking with other players to form chains. The use of “virtual economy” is used to allow players to trade and purchase in the currencies represented in the in-game market.
