The development of apps is crucial to the success of a DLT ecosystem. The more programs available, the more users will be motivated to explore with a particular blockchain. This law has been confirmed by large projects such as Ethereum, EOS and Tron.
The team responsible for developing and promoting Waves is fully aware of this reality, so they created a funding program for developers willing to create games using their technology.
According to an official press release published in its official blog, the development team assigned 100k Waves (just under 300k USD) to Tradisys; a startup focused on creating video games for this platform.
The Waves team shared its enthusiasm about this collaboration with all their followers.
Tradisys, an established contributor to the Waves community in the gaming field, will be issued a 100,000 WAVES grant for future projects … Waves strongly believes that the gaming sector will be an enthusiastic adopter of blockchain and will drive its widespread use …
We anticipate a fruitful and exсiting collaboration with Tradisys. We will soon publish an interview with Ioann Voronin, Tradisys’s crew captain, so stay tuned.
Games On Waves… The Key To Adoption
The idea behind this business move is to increase the collection of titles available in order to engage players with different interests. Waves hopes to connect with the gamer public recognizing that this industry moves more than 100Billion dollars annually.
The decision to award 100k Waves to Tradisys is part of a gaming project launched by the platform in October 2018 . At that time, the team in charge of the blockchain created a fund of one million Waves to distribute to game developers.
Sasha Ivanov, Waves Founder and CEO, explained that they made that decision not only for the industry’s profitability but also because they trust that the gaming industry can help the growth and popularization of blockchain technologies:
This initiative was launched to showcase the versatility of Waves technology and stimulate its adoption in such an important industry as gaming. I believe that the gaming sector will be an enthusiastic adopter of blockchain, and will drive its widespread use. Given the mutual opportunity here, we are more than ready to reward developers for the effort they make in implementing their projects within Waves ecosystem
