Details



Ownage (http://ownage.io) is a new blockchain based platform to distribute, collect and trade digital game content.

Blockchains, the technology underlying Bitcoin and Ethereum, provide game developers with new ways to handle virtual property, such as in-game purchases, as well as giving users real ownership of their items.

Other benefits include provable digital scarcity, cross game assets, open trading systems, and item provenance, all handled by public infrastructure rather than a closed platform.

Check out this short blog post to learn more. (https://medium.com/ownage/cryptoproperty-6-reasons-the-blockchain-will-revolutionise-game-content-37b249556200)

To make it easy to explore the opportunities blockchains provide, Ownage are building Ethereum based infrastructure and tools that game developers can easily integrate with their existing engines, starting with Unity.

We're ready to let game developers loose with the tools we've built, so we'd love to invite you to our Shoreditch office on Saturday 20th May to come and make something awesome.

You’ll learn about existing blockchain/games projects, then spend the day trying ideas out for yourselves.

No blockchain experience is necessary.

We're excited to see what you build!
