It's time once again for the monthly Blockchain Gaming Meetup, a series of events hosted by www.blockchaingaming.com, the first website dedicated to blockchain-based video games. Attention to this sub-industry has soared since the involvement of mainstream developers and consoles, and we're going to cover every blockchain game one by one and livestream it to our YouTube channel.
The XAYA protocol has its roots in Huntercoin, the world's first fully-decentralized MMO. With the whole world on the blockchain, there were no mods or admins, leaving players to fight battles of real consequence over newly-minted cryptocurrency. Unfortunately, artificial intelligence took over the game, and players lost a great war with someone known as the Dominator.
XAYA's new blockchain comes with enhanced scalability features such as game channels and ephemeral timestamps, and can be used as a platform for games of any genre. We're going to show off Xayaships, a simple game intended for demonstration, as well as the alpha of Taurion, their first MMO. We'll tell you all about how the technology works and answer any questions you may have.
