Users can buy and sell goods on the platform using Abyss tokens, which also helps game developers monetize their creations.
Video Games and Blockchain
Many observers believe that video games can be a driving force for cryptocurrency adoption. Projects like The Abyss and Hoard are building on this very thesis and attempting to bring in a new set of users to the space.
Abyss tokens will be integrated on the Waves blockchain, which allows users to integrate the functionality of the token directly on their Waves-based games. It goes without saying that this comes with a technical SDK and professional assistance.
Games on the platform will be able to leverage the Abyss distribution network. This gives them the opportunity to launch their game to a much wider audience.
Waves Founder and CEO, Sasha Ivanov, stated that he recognizes gaming as a high potential segment, with a current size of over $100 billion. Both projects are extremely confident that this will be a state of the art digital marketplace from which many parties can benefit.
Development has already begun for the integration and necessary APIs and like will be added to the SDK once this is complete.
