🔥Why Web3 Game & Application

Games and applications have been on fire in recent years. One of the main drivers is the increasing popularity of blockchain technology, which has enabled the creation of decentralized applications (dApps) that can be used for a variety of purposes, including gaming. The COVID-19 pandemic has also played a role in the rise of GameFi and applications. With many people spending more time at home, there has been a surge in demand for online gaming and other digital entertainment options. GameFi arised as it created new gaming experiences that allow players to earn cryptocurrency rewards for their in-game activities. However, as the landscape evolves, novel ways to integrate crypto elements into games have emerged. We have seen the rise of 3A games narrative with high-quality & fun-centric games carried out by Dev teams with strong Web2 gaming background. We have also witnessed that some cryptopunks, leveraging the beauty of blockchain, are creating so-called autonomous worlds that enable unprecedented gameplays in Web2.

Games & Applications are deemed to be the playground for pioneers & punks in the space. They will remain as such in the foreseeable future.

About Dojo

Dojo is the culmination of lessons learned from attempts at building onchain games, an emerging sector in the gaming industry. Any developer who has endeavored to build an on-chain game recognizes the inherent engineering hurdles - a realization that drove us to create Dojo. Just as you wouldn't recreate Unity every time you develop a new game, the same principle applies here. Dojo is designed to handle the complex infrastructure, allowing developers to focus on the unique aspects of their games.

Dojo aspires to be the go-to tool for building provable games. It is radically open-source, and all contributions are welcome.
