Cryptocurrency

May I ask what is your opinion on cryptocurrency on games, in general?
I saw some games where you invest cryptocurrencies in like World of Ether and Bitpet. I never thought those type of games would exist, I think it's smart from the game developers to take advantage of the cryptocurrency hype.
Do gamers who invest in Cryptocurrencies really take those kind of games into consideration?

    I think i'm okay with it. Most games have their own in-game currency anyway, so not a huge issue.

    I don't think current cryptocurrencies have a future. If a 1st world nation's central bank adopts a cryptocurrency, then it's pretty much done. They also don't have a means of inflation once they reach a certain stage. Inflation is necessary for a currency to match a growing economy and keep prices stable. Otherwise you have the currency jumping up to $10k USD.
    To me they serve 2 purposes, unregulated transfer of wealth and pyramid schemes.

    They're pretty dumb.   Bitcoin wastes more energy than many countries legitimately use for purposeful industry.  They're pretty slow and ineffective as well, with network limits of single digit transaction counts per second (purposeful transaction exchanges like credit card processing are at 10s of thousands of transfers a second).

    The block chain portion of being a public ledger, that is very difficult to corrupt, that isn't controlled by a single entity, and has MANY backups around the world...  Is actually seeing some pretty useful experiments done with it, like financial contracts and transfers between banks (using real currency).  I wouldn't be surprised to see block chain used for things like controlled substances, prescription drugs, personal arms (in non-USA countries), and maybe even easily contaminated food like veggies (distant-ish).

    I am a cryptocurrency trader & love to read information related to cryptocurrency, to learn something new all the time. Besides, investing in cryptocurrency is very riskier in the current market scenario. Even if you are new to this, it's enough to join the best cryptocurrency tools to protect your wallet address with the latest technology, Here you are getting a chance to earn good money.

    The main reason why countries ban cryptocurrency is because it subverts their own central currencies. For a modern society, a cryptocurrency prevents a lot of undesirable things related to money. It's difficult to inflate without authorization. It has an accurate log of all the trades. Transactions are near instantaneous.

    No reason for it to be.  The actual and dominate publishers/similar have no reason to relinquish their control over player data, time, or similar.  

    Likewise one of the reasons there is a drive away from 3rd party stores is to keep as much data out of the hands of competitors.  All those Steam achievements, play times, and similar is giving away the "new oil" that data is to Valve/Steam.   While in a lot of cases not the biggest factor, it is one.

    Well, most of them burn bright and fade out quickly. I’ve taken advantage of this knowledge for quite some time by focusing on the new ones gaining money and then trading before their profits plummet. But, every now and then, you will find a coin that is trying something different from what BitCoin has to offer by adding new features or business strategies:

    MasterCoin focuses on the security of its users by using the power of blockchains for further encryption. DarkCoin and MAIDsafe are focused primarily on the decentralization of transactions. GameCredits wants to provide currency within gaming that can turn into actual money once cashed out(!!!). Ripple has recently been government approved by New York for a BitLicense to lower capital loss during inter-currency payments. NewEconomyMovement (which is currently blowing up at the time of writing this) has excellent off-line wallet features with cryptocurrency.
