The Tron Foundation announced that it will establish a blockchain game fund, dubbed TRON Arcade, with up to $100M to be invested in the next 3 years. The funds will help building ”the foundation for a robust blockchain game ecosystem.”
Although few details have been given on the precise allocation of the money, a dedicated website invites games developers to get in touch and apply for help, whether for distribution, technology, funding or advising.
Tron, ”dedicated to accelerating the decentralization of the Internet through blockchain technology and decentralized applications,” explained that blockchain gaming is both ”high paying (engaged users willing to pay for a chance to earn big) and fast growing (surging crypto adoption brings explosive user growth).”
Claiming to offer faster transactions and a bigger user base than its main competitors (Ethereum and EOS), Tron could take advantage of its recent acquisition of BitTorrent, the leading P2P file transfer solution used by 100 million people worldwide, to become a key player of the nascent blockchain gaming industry.
Blockchain Cuties, one of the 5 most popular Ethereum-based collectibles games, has just announced that it will also be playable through the Tron ecosystem.
