Q: What do you do?
A: I am the CEO of Alto.io and we are working on a suite of tools that allows game developers and enthusiasts to easily create, sell and connect cryptoitems on the blockchain.
Q: What makes you most excited for blockchain gaming?
A: The blockchain is a great equalizer. A space where mid and indie developers have a better chance of succeeding. I’m excited about the amount of innovation game developers can create using the blockchain to significantly change the way we play games, particularly the aspect of real item ownership and game item interoperability.
Q: What are your thoughts on the way the sector has grown in the last 12 months?
A: Blockchain games have come a long way since the first few projects came out a few years ago. It was an era where teams are still poking around, figuring out the intersection between blockchain and games. I think teams were bold enough to dream that games have a future on the blockchain and are resolute enough to make it a reality.
Q: What major trends do you predict for blockchain gaming in the next 12 months?
A: I see next gen blockchain solutions and games gaining traction. Also, the rise of crypto items and NFTs (Non-Fungible Tokens) transcending further than just being a collectible. Lastly I predict more successful blockchain games that are actually fun to play.
Q: Which part of Blockchain Gamer Connects/PGC San Francisco are you most looking forward to and why?
A: I’m looking forward to meeting like-minded people who are dedicated to the advancement of gaming on the blockchain.
