Our dedicated content tracks range from Influencer Impact to Future Visions and all have a role to play in discussing potential future opportunities where games intersect with other digital entertainment and creative sectors – you can see an overview of all the tracks here. Some of the most popular topics to be discussed include blockchain and NFTs, and today we will take a closer look at some of the tracks and talks designed to cover these areas.
What exactly is blockchain and what do we need to know as the world of crypto merges with the world of games? How do we get ahead of the competition and begin to integrate this technology into future projects? As we explore how blockchain can play a role in game development and in expanding the limits of what is currently possible to enhance the player experience, some of the top specialised experts on the growing field of blockchain technology integration into gaming will be leading the discussions.
Here’s just a few talks you can look forward to:

Speaker: Malte Barth of BITKRAFT Esports Ventures

The New NFT Economies
This track will take a look at how NFTs are already playing a role in changing the gaming landscape today. How are these unique digital assets disrupting the industry and what can we do to incorporate them into future projects?

Regardless of whether you are familiar with these digital assets or completely new to the concept, these talks will bring inspiration and seasoned expertise. Hosting some of the leading experts in the field that have a proven track record of successes in the world of NFTs, this track is certainly not one to miss.
