How do blockchain games work?

Compared to traditional gaming, blockchain games operate differently from other games in the gaming industry. In case you didn’t already know, blockchain technology can be used for more than just investing and conducting business. This tech can also serve as a reliable platform for gaming and entertainment. In fact, CryptoFights is made possible by harnessing the power of public blockchain.

Blockchain tech creates many opportunities for gaming due to decentralization.

Decentralization, Reduced Failure, Transparency

One of the biggest differences between blockchain games and other competitive online games is that blockchain games aren’t hosted on a closed centralized server. You’ve probably heard of competitive games such as Fortnite, Madden Football, and Starcraft 2. Because they’re not blockchain games, every single match that takes place on these games happen on their own respective servers. These gaming engagements happen on closed loops because the servers used are private. None of the players of games on centralized servers can review actions that have been taken in the game which means there’s less transparency. Cheating opportunities increase for players, game developers, game staff, or anyone that has access to the code of the game or servers due to the inability to review gameplay.

Blockchain games are the opposite due to their decentralized nature. Players can track and analyze every action ever taken in the game whether it be their own or the moves of other players. A blockchain game’s core logic and existing data are accessible by players to be analyzed and reused for future games. This ability unique to blockchain games will reduce cheating while increasing transparency.

Due to its decentralized nature, blockchain games are also less likely to experience failures since it doesn’t require one central server to make everything happen. Blockchain games don’t shut down even if one part of the blockchain game fails. This stability and integrity are possible thanks to the utilization of the blockchain and the miners to keep the game running smoothly.


For players to financially interact within a blockchain game’s ecosystem, they’ll rely on in-game tokens which will serve as in-game currency. This type of ecosystem within the blockchain is also known as Tokenomics. Compared to traditional centralized games, you never really own items you purchase in-game. You risk losing all of your items if your account is suspended or if the server goes down. Blockchain games allow you to keep your items since they stay in your wallet and you could trade them even if you can no longer use your account. The value of a token varies per blockchain game and can be used according to the rules of the blockchain game.

You can review every game you've ever played with blockchain tech.


Every item/asset that’s acquired in a blockchain game is ‘owned’ by the players. Blockchain games allow players to hold onto items they’ve purchased or earned in their virtual wallets. This is true for CryptoFights since everything you win stays with whether it’s armor or spears for your CryptoFights character. Since CryptoFights uses Bitcoin SV,  it’s easy to manage in-game currency while keeping track of everything you’ve ever won or purchased.
