Check out the complete schedule for Blockchain Games Next!

The future of gaming right now

We’re thrilled to introduce you to the future of gaming – Blockchain Games Next!

Starting up on March 19th, we will explore the current state of play and opportunities in the sector. It’s all about having the big discussions in a relaxed setting, uniting blockchain developers and platform partners.

The half-day event is free to attend and will provide a focused space for blockchain game developers, platforms, tool-makers, investors, press, and others interested in the space to discuss key issues, trends and opportunities in a relaxed setting.

N.B. You don’t have to be working in blockchain to attend! The talks are deliberately open for non-blockchain game folks, it isn’t hardcore technical talk, it’s about celebrating successes and exploring potential, so if you’re not currently working with blockchain but are maybe thinking about how blockchain technology could fit into your studio’s plans, then definitely sign up.

More than 200 attendees will enjoy a meet-and-greet during the lunchtime registration before a series of talks and panel discussions from up to 20 world-class speakers. The full schedule for the day (please note: subject to change) is:

Sponsors

TRON unveiled its new blockchain game fund TRON Arcade, with up to $100M to be invested in the project for the next three years, building the foundation for a robust blockchain game ecosystem. The main goal of the fund is to empower developers to create and execute on their ideas, to introduce new games and content into an autonomous ecosystem, and to build a strong community of content and entertainment.

Cocos-BCX is a decentralized gaming and digital assets development platform built with the Cocos engine – one of the largest gaming developer community with 1.3 million developers. Some of the most well-known games including Fight!, Badlands, and Clash of Kings were built using the Cocos development platform and many game publishers including Zynga & Big Fish Games rely on Cocos2d-x.
