Let the blockchain games multiply. At least that’s what Tron appears to be hoping.
In a blog post Thursday, the decentralized network announced it would launch a blockchain game fund, Tron Arcade. Tron will invest $100 million in the project over the next three years to create “a robust blockchain game ecosystem.”
The fund will support developers and aim “to introduce new games and content.”
“Video and mobile games have always been a driving force for new forms of entertainment, and games are often the first test applied to new emerging technologies,” the blog post said. “The unique advantages of blockchain technology, like immutability, security, and the ability to activate decentralization, create more room for imagination in the gaming industry.”
It has been an active year for Tron. In July, the company acquired the peer-to-peer file sharing protocol, BitTorrent.
