According to reports, the mobile game "Flappy Bird", which had been popular in 2014, will reappear in front of the players through the EOS blockchain platform after many years, while allowing players to play for free every 12 hours. The first few players will receive EOS tokens in the game as rewards, while those who have the game currency FLB will also receive dividends.
However, unlike Flappy Bird's popularity in the past, "Flappy Bird" built on the EOS blockchain platform seems to have not received the expected attention. According to statistics, in the past 7 days, only 57 users have used the game and reached 154 transactions.
Flappy Bird achieved success in 2014, setting a record for the most downloaded games in the iOS app store that year. However, due to the user's addictive issues and a lot of attention, the original author Dong Nguyen removed the game from the app store.
The game on the EOS platform has decentralized features, and even if it is not clear whether the new version of Flappy Bird will lead the trend again, it is worth noting that blockchain games are becoming more and more popular. The data shows that the traditional computer game industry is worth more than $108.9 billion and has more than 2.2 billion players worldwide. Experts believe that blockchain technology will bring fundamental changes to the game industry, providing gamers with real token rewards and transaction security.
This revolution has been supported by many large technology companies and startups. US blockchain game startup Mythical Games has announced the completion of a $16 million Series A financing to promote blockchain technology in the gaming industry. The investment will be used in EOS blockchain games and will be available on consoles, PCs and mobile devices.
Blockchain games are currently in their infancy and there are still some obstacles to overcome. First, typical gamers may think that gameplay based on blockchain technology is limited.
In addition, there is also the problem of system complexity. Since blockchain technology is a relatively complex concept, when the game industry uses a large number of blockchain technologies, developers must also strive to reduce system complexity.
