The co-founder of social media site Alexis Ohanian has said that play-to-earn blockchain titles will be dominant in the market in the near future.
Speaking to the Where It Happens podcast – as reported by Business Insider – Ohanian, who currently runs the VC firm Seven Seven Six, said that he reckons the vast majority of people will be engaging with play-to-earn titles. These are games primarily where users are given cryptocurrency in return for playing.
"90 per cent of people will not play a game unless they are being properly valued for that time," Ohanian said.
"In five years, you will actually value your time properly, and instead of being harvested for advertisements, or being fleeced for dollars to buy stupid hammers you don't actually own, you will be playing some on-chain equivalent game that will be just as fun, but you'll actually earn value and you will be the harvester."
