In this episode, Jon discusses blockchain game sector trends with James McQuillan (@BCGbiz).Some blockchain game projects are now going live but few people seems to care. Similarly, it’s not clear when other high profile projects are going to go live. Certainly the sector seems much stronger when it comes to sizzle than it comes to actuality. How big is this problem? How can we solve it? How can projects gain scale?Topics covered include:Is it too early to be talking about cross-chain interoperability?Blockchain game projects are now going live but does anyone care?WAX & Theta mainnet are liveRobot Cache is open in Early AccessWhen will Relentless, Decentraland, Gods Unchained, F1 Delta Time launch?Why are some many blockchain games/projects failing to attract users?& what can we learn from the games like My Crypto Heroes that have...Episode links - SizzleCheeze WizardsDecentralandGods UnchainedF1 Delta TimeRelentlessRobot CacheEpisode links - ActualityAxie InfinityBlockchain CutiesEOS KnightsMy Crypto HeroesDiscuss with Jon on Twitter& check out Blockchain Gaming World on YouTube 
In this episode, Jon talks to 8 Circuit Studios’ president James Mayo about the US indie’s approach to combining games and the blockchain.Notably, in the case of its in-development PC space combat and FPS title Project Genesis - using Unreal Engine, Ethereum, and scheduled for release in 2020 - this means a heavy focus on building a strong community through an open development process and regular playtests. Topics covered include:James’ early experience in games with Nintendo and MicrosoftWhy he’s interested in blockchain for games8 Circuit’s first blockchain experiment with a mobile gameWhy it then decided to make PC space combat/shooter Project GenesisIts open model of development, which encourages community buildingThat neither gamers or publishers currently care about blockchain or NFT ownershipWhich is why 8 Circuit is game-focusedAlso a shoutout for James’ use of the term “transaction viscosity”...Episode links: James Mayo - TwitterProject Genesis - websiteProject Genesis dev schedule - Trello8 Circuit Studios - websiteFollow Jon on Twitter& check out Blockchain Gaming World on YouTube 
In this episode, Jon and co-founder Alex Casassovici (@alexksso) discuss the rise of the Azarus blockchain-based rewards platform for game streaming. What’s significant about Azurus (which uses an EOS sidechain) is it doesn’t mention blockchain, onboards users through ther Twitch accounts, and can be retrofitted to any existing game. Also, its rewards urrency - AZA Credits - is locked to the platform and can’t be exported to crypto exchanges. Basically then Azarus uses blockchain tech where it’s needed on the backend, but enables scale by using the traditional web services in ways that users are accustomed to.Topics covered include:How Alex got into blockchainThe spark behind AzarusThinking beyond NFTsAzarus’ advantage in terms of the ease for game developers to retrofit itHow the AZA Credit worksWhy most traditional game companies aren’t interested in cryptocurrenciesWhat’s next for Azarus?When will blockchain gaming take-off?Episode links: Alex Casassovici - TwitterAzarus - webAzarus - TwitterFollow Jon on Twitter& check out Blockchain Gaming World on YouTube
