From augmenting your game for the best user experience to making as much impact as mobile: Inside Blockchain Gaming at Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle

With two weeks to go until Pocket Gamer Connects Seattle commences on May 13th and runs to the 14th, we’re taking the opportunity to highlight the 10 tracks on offer at the event (plus there's also four tracks over on PC Connects).

In the build-up, we will be looking at one specific track daily to give you a better idea of what to expect.

Today we’re looking at the Blockchain Gaming track that will bring together a host of experts to discuss a range of topics, including everything you need to know about blockchain technology and why you should use it.

As one of the newest technologies on offer, there are a host of incredible opportunities and huge rewards for those who succeed but in the early days, there’s no shortage of pitfalls to avoid. Of which, these will be laid out by our specialists in the subject.

May 14th

15:40 - Kicking off the day’s proceedings, Mythical Games CEO John Linden will host a session pitting Blockchain games against games that use Blockchain. Linden previously served as president of Los Angelos-based studio Seismic Games.

16:00 - Azarus.io CEO and co-founder Alexander Casassovici will then present a talk on how to augment your game with Blockchain without sacrificing the user experience by sharing important tips and tricks from his experience.

16:20 - Next up, 8 Circuit Studios CEO James Mayo will discuss lessons learned from triple-A game development that can be applied to Blockchain games. Mayo will cite the best practices as well as what approach to take throughout the development period.

16:40 - Last but certainly not least, the final session will feature a panel on what steps Blockchain needs to take to have the same impact on games as the mobile industry. Dragon Foundry founder and CEO Paul Barclay will be joined by Bitski CEO Donnie Dinch and Reality Clash co-founder Tony Pearce to address this topic.

These sessions are from just one of the 10 tracks taking place at the show the year.
