The cryptocurrency index provider AltDex has introduced a cryptocurrency index for game technology tokens. The company announced the development on April 4 in a blog post.
AltDex has developed a benchmark index for the blockchain gaming category called AltDex Gaming Index.
The Index seeks to detect cryptocurrencies and tokens from blockchain-based projects related to video games, e-sports, and other analog decentralized applications.
According to the Post, the AltDex index is used for 13 coins, including Theta Token (THETA), Enjin Coin (ENJ), WAX (WAX), Decentraland (MANA), Kin (KIN), Loom Network (LOOM), MobileGO (MGO ), DMarket (DMT), Referee (RFR), GameCredits (GAME), Unikoin Gold (UKG), Plair (PLA) and BitGuild (PLAT).
In March, Ethereum-based startup Enjin announced the digital asset tokenization to launch a Software Development Kit (SDK) for the game development engine Unity.
The SDK will give Unity developers the ability to create, integrate, and manage the distribution of ERC1155-compliant tokens in the Ethereum Blockchain.
As previously reported, blockchain developer Lucid Sight has raised € 5.3 million to extend its games to traditional gaming platforms.
The company will use the investment to launch the Scarcity Engine, a software development tool designed to introduce Blockchain-powered games from Lucid Sight to gaming platforms such as consoles, PCs and mobile devices.
At the end of March, Blockchain startup Animoca Brands announced that it had signed a worldwide Formula One licensing agreement to release a blockchain game based on the world-famous racing series.
Animoca claims the Blockchain game will deepen the fans’ commitment, and the partnership is in line with the goal of Liberty Media, owner of Formula One, to enhance the fan experience by investing heavily in new technology.
