Here’s a link to a thoughtful read about the future of virtual goods and how blockchain is allowing a market to develop within game worlds. As soon as common API’s are in use by game developers, you’ll see players “owning” their loot.
I believe this is the new market that capitalism has been searching for. We either go virtual or we get off the planet. We need new markets for the expansion of the economy or the poor will eat the rich and we’ll have to start the civilization game over again. This way we can keep an underclass who only own or rent digital goods. Blockchain and common API’s are the dominos that need to fall before we’re living in Ready Player One’s Oasis.
