The decentralization, reduced failure rates, and transparency of blockchain games

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.
