“Lightnite is an online multiplayer battle royale game where every specific digital interaction between players triggers a monetary reward or penalty. In simple words, players earn bitcoin by shooting other players and lose bitcoin when they get shot,” explained the Satoshi.Games team.
Players will also be able to purchase in-game items directly through their wallet, or through their in-game balance. The Satoshi.Games team has recommended Bluewallet as a tool to access the Lightning Network.
The increasing prominence of Bitcoin LN has created speculation that even a major gaming company could use the technology.
The first major gaming company to add support for lightning network will changing gaming forever, and probably have a massive windfall on their hands.
