The blockchain platform will allow users to modify or create their own new games
Some companies have focused their technological projects on the development of blockchain tools in order to improve financial processes. In this case, in South Korea, a prestigious startup dedicated to the video game industry has recently created its own blockchain platform.
The Planetarium Company will soon launch a trial version of a video game that will be supported by a blockchain platform that has been developed by the same South Korean company.
About the project is known that Planetarium seeks to launch a video game called Nine Chronicles, which will have a completely decentralized base, which will store information in the blockchain created by the company.
It is expected that the blockchain platform will be launched at the end of this year. Although they do not have an official date yet, they are working on the last stages of development. It was known that the intention is to create an open source platform; hence, developers can use it as a base to develop games and support their databases in the blockchain.
Regarding the emergence of this innovative initiative, the CEO of Planetarium, Kijun Seo, recently commented that currently, video games that have a data support in a blockchain, are possible from platforms known as Ethereum or EOS.
It is for this reason that the company has set its goals to create a blockchain platform that is developed only for video games and that forms the ideal and independent ecosystem that is needed in the industry. “Decisions about the game should be determined by the needs of the games, not by the platform. First, we should define the game, not the chain of blocks under it”.
In this sense, in addition, more versatility could be offered when creating new games and reducing the technical limitations of creation, which users could share and enjoy.
“When the gaming companies discovered that any secondary creation made by users’ modding went against their interests, they blocked the private servers the players installed or sued the users for copyright issues. I think decentralized games based on our open source platform will be able to open a new era for secondary creations”.
The developers and executives of the company hope that this new blockchain platform in open source, allows users to modify or create games using this tool. It is compared with other games already known for these characteristics as League of Legend.
Planetarium has protected part of its capital in investment accounts, and has shown interest in adopting a double license system in order to encourage users to use their new open source platform. However, the aforementioned allows them to receive funds which help them to continue developing games in the future.
The use of blockchain technology is still one of the most versatile of new technologies, allowing hundreds of possible uses that help boost business and improve creation and development processes.
