Blockchain is now being adopted by the traditional gaming industry.
8Hours Foundation has mapped out several steps to become more Blockchain oriented. It is one of those in the Non-Fungible Token (NFT) sector and has employed Michael Katz into its advisory board so as to tap from his blockchain experience.
Katz has been working on several level for the development of video games for the past 25 years. He has worked for Atari Video Game Division as the president, SEGA (as the president too), and Mattel (as the marketing director).
8Hours Foundation recently released some new products. The firm hopes their target market will see reasons to buy soon. The new products are branded as VIMWorld and they were all developed with Katz’s input.
Some of those who will be working with Katz have been top officials in Tetris, Call of Duty, and Guitar Hero.
Someone from 8Hours Foundation said something about Katz’s appointment:
“His [Michael Katz] industry weight is unmatched, having been part of some of the most successful novel product launches in gaming history. With extensive experience working at the head of Atari, SEGA and Mattel, we are confident Michael’s advisory will prove indispensable for our future success, having already led major gaming companies to new heights and product areas.”
Something related to this is the addition of BBC Studios to the blockchain gaming industry after its collaboration with Reality Gaming Group on August 13. This partnership will lead to the creation of a gamified Doctor Who, which is a well known TV series.
There hasn’t been a time except now when the BBC advertised its intellectual property with the use of blockchain.
