• On-chain gaming stands apart from traditional and hybrid gaming models by having its entire game logic and state hosted directly on the blockchain. 

  • A fully on-chain gaming model offers the advantages of immutability and data permanence; composability and interoperability; community governance and true asset ownership. As growth in blockchain gaming is expected to witness a compounding annual growth rate (“CAGR”) of 70.3% till 2025, fully on-chain games will likely see increased adoption as well. Despite these benefits, this emerging sector has to overcome several challenges such as technical constraints, poor user experience, bot interferences, and a fragmented gaming ecosystem.

  • Key contributors to the development of fully on-chain games include infrastructure providers, gaming studios, and the users themselves, each playing a pivotal role in realizing this vision. 

  • On-chain games have garnered significant interest thus far as we saw notable game developers such as Proof of Play and Neon Machine raising US$33M and US$20M respectively to develop on-chain games. Progress and interest in on-chain games have also grown in tandem with gaming titles such as Nine Chronicles rising through the ranks to become the top 10 most popular games on DappRadar. 

  • Though not imminent, the future of fully on-chain games is well-supported, with three key catalysts acting as tailwinds for mass adoption of on-chain gaming: engaging gameplay with sustainable design, advancements in gaming infrastructure and finally, the development of a more interoperable game economy, which is often referred to as the ‘Autonomous World’.
