Keynote: Interoperability and the Games People Play
The collision of blockchain technology and gaming holds great promise for the growth of both industries. Blockchains provide a useful tool for gamers for various reasons including decentralized asset exchanges, verifiable scarcity of virtual objects and collectibles, fast and secure transaction networks, and an ability for players and publishers to discover exciting new channels to monetize game play.

Interoperability occurs at many levels. In gaming, NFT's and inter-game items are long desired outcomes.

Games like Fortnite feature a closed item system, whereby items are non-transferable to other players and can never be sold. This creates a situation where the value of your digital goods are trapped inside that particular game’s economy.
