The blockchain gaming company Zilliqa recently announced it would be launching a Web3-focused video game console. This device will come with first-party games, a Web3 wallet, and mining utilities.
As VentureBeat puts it, the goal of this device is to allow people to play video games while mining for Zil tokens. Additionally, Zilliqa hopes that this will increase the onboarding of its platform through the creation of a gaming hub as well as a Web3 wallet. Players will be able to buy, sell, and earn rewards.
“Upon announcing our first game at Gamescom, we had a great response from the gaming community, and we’re excited to say that it was just the beginning,” said Valentin Cobelea, the head of gaming technology at Zilliqa. “Zilliqa’s hardware console and gaming hub will allow non-crypto natives to earn money while playing fun games without the complexity of managing the crypto they earn. We will launch the console and gaming hub early next year with two Zilliqa games, followed by more games from a variety of creators. With the backing of Zilliqa’s large crypto community and the easy-to-use infrastructure, we have no doubt that we can become the Steam equivalent for Web3 games.”
Early access beta testing for the gaming hub begins this month. Meanwhile, the consoles will be available to preorder early next year.
