Why Tezos for Gaming?

The Tezos blockchain addresses the key requirements in the Gaming category, providing a secure and dependable platform where novel applications and experiences can be built on. This is one of the reasons why Tezos has been widely adopted by global brands and institutions, as well as being one of the most popular blockchains for NFTs.

As one of the world’s leading blockchains, Tezos is recognized for its energy-efficient design, self-upgradable mechanism and low transaction fees. Tezos is an open platform, and its pioneering Proof-of-Stake design means it is both highly secure and energy efficient,, which is ideal for creating novel applications and gaming experiences.

There are three key considerations when selecting a blockchain to build on

There are three key considerations when selecting a blockchain to build on

Energy-efficiency
Not all blockchains are created equal. Tezos, as a pioneering layer 1 Proof-of-Stake blockchain, is an energy-efficient alternative to more traditional Proof-of-Work blockchains. Because Tezos doesn’t consume vast amounts of energy to secure itself, it doesn’t suffer from the inflationary pressure experienced by other blockchains.

 Is the blockchain you are building on clean or does it have a large carbon footprint? Tezos is a Proof-of-Stake blockchain, which means it is energy-efficient and can operate with a fraction of the energy requirements of other blockchains.

Transaction costs
A blockchain should empower users, not gate engagement behind. Fees to send and receive transactions on Tezos are among the lowest in the industry (less than $1 USD) – making it more eco-friendly and accessible than many competitors. Tezos’ low transaction costs encourage open participation, of a kind that users expect from a global decentralized community.
Is the blockchain you are building on scalable from a transaction cost standpoint? If the cost to transact, or perform normal functions such as minting an NFT etc is high (as is the case with many blockchains), this can act as a barrier for participation from users. A blockchain should empower users, not gate engagement behind a paywall. Tezos transaction costs are low, ensuring an openness of participation you’d expect from a global decentralized community.
Longevity
On-chain governance is the key that helps unlock innovation and longevity. Without it, upgrades to the protocol would potentially be a messy process, resembling either governance by an informal oligarchy, or worse, a “proof-of-social-media” popularity contest. Tezos is different because it can upgrade itself without forking or splitting, meaning it will continue to improve, becoming faster, stronger and better well into the future. Tezos’ proven on-chain governance mechanism has allowed seven protocol upgrades to be deployed so far – more than any other blockchain in existence.
Is the blockchain you are building on designed for longevity? Most blockchains resort to upgrade-by-fork which means that the blockchain literally splits; this effectively duplicates everything on both blockchains, so if you have NFTs on the blockchain, you end up with duplicate NFTs on both chains. A blockchain like Tezos is different because it can upgrade itself without forking or splitting, meaning it can continue to become faster, stronger and better well into the future.
