Polyient Games’ Craig Russo believes that the NFT market has come to represent one of the “most attractive opportunities” across digital assets.
Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) are emerging as a very popular blockchain trend in gaming, as they're also now being used in the sports industry (ticketing), financial services, and as a way to sell and transfer property, highlighted Craig Russo, director of innovation of an investment firm and startup ecosystem, Polyient Games.
In an interview with Cointelegraph, Russo explains that NFTs first captured the attention of the mainstream crypto community in 2017 with the launch of Ethereum (ETH) collectibles game, CryptoKittie.
Since then, Russo believes that the NFT market has come to represent one of the “most attractive opportunities” across all digital assets, with immediate use cases already being found within the art, collectibles and even the gaming industries
Polyient Games’ director of innovation explained further about the role of NFTs within the gaming space and its “steadily” popularity:
“One reason gamers are gravitating towards blockchain is that - unlike traditional games - blockchain environments permit players to gain true ownership of their in-game items.
