Whether you think it’s the real deal or you’re more skeptical, nobody can deny how important blockchain technology will be for the Metaverse. And one area where the blockchain will disrupt the Metaverse first will be in gaming — which is already worth approximately $170 billion (2020) as reported by some sources — particularly in NFT and blockchain-powered game development.
A company exploiting this is Reality Gaming Group, a startup developing innovative games and marketplaces that combine the best of traditional gaming with new technology based on the blockchain.
Founded in 2017 by Morten Rongaard and Tony Pearce and headquartered in London, the award-winning developer and publisher of blockchain-based games is currently working on NFT-based trading card game Doctor Who: Worlds Apart and mobile AR shooter, Reality Clash, the world’s first mobile augmented reality (‘AR’) combat game. But that’s not the only thing Reality Gaming Group is up to, as it’s working to assist global brands take advantage of the NFT movement, from boxing legend Floyd Mayweather to visionary kids brand Smighties.

Apart from the games, Reality Gaming Group supports developers and brands harnessing the power of the blockchain and non-fungible tokens to drive user acquisition and open new revenue streams with digital collectibles by creating stunning NFTs and bespoke marketplaces for your brand where your fans freely trade your NFTs and export to the blockchain, as well as selling NFT artwork or videos to your audience.
Worried about security? Reality Gaming Group has that covered, too, with everything authenticated and verified on the blockchain, protecting your IP from scams or fakes so you can track every trade, sale and owner forever.
