We sat down with Anthony Di Iorio, an advisor for WAX Token, and here’s what he had to say about gaming eSports blockchains. Here he gives his thoughts on how this new technology can be used in gaming. Here’s what he had to say:

“WAX is an exciting project. Their team has used blockchain tech in a novel way to create value and efficiency in the gaming world. Modern games, and games of the future, are environments and markets all of their own. By using blockchain technology to treat in-game assets as trackable and tradable items WAX has created a platform that drives innovation and represents immediate and actionable opportunity.”

WAX’s Impressive Human and Technological Resources

“The WAX team combines great experience in their industry and an in-depth knowledge of blockchain tech. They’re applying those skills and experience to merge the video game space with the digital currency world. It’s the details that drive the value, though. Users and gamers are able, through the decentralized WAX platform, to see their digital assets appreciate in value and to transfer that value around. Digital assets develop histories and stories of their own within video games; the WAX platform doesn’t just allow the transfer of ownership and use, but also it enables the stories behind them.

Poised for Success

“Decentralized technologies, like the blockchain tech WAX is building on, are being used to disrupt a wide variety of markets today. At the same time, people are taking gaming to an entire new level through eSports, and other contests. We’re seeing eSports being accepted broadly and culturally. WAX is at the intersection of these movements and they’re doubling down on what they’re good at. They are harnessing insight gleaned from leading an industry and are leading that market into the future.
