Blockchain Breakthrough: Peerplays Creates Open-Source Fee Sharing Module

After a successful first round of ICO funding, Peerplays announced today that they have innovated the Blockchain space with the creation of an open-source fee sharing module, allowing any Graphene-based Blockchain to distribute profits directly to its token holders.

“Peerplays is aiming to be the first truly Decentralized Autonomous Cooperative (DAC) and we have just added a major piece to the puzzle,” said Jonathan Baha’i, President of BunkerChain Labs and the Blockchain technology consultant for Peerplays, in a press release.

Bunkerchain Labs Puts Gaming On The Blockchain

In an ironic twist of fate, an ex-military nuclear bunker and data center operation called BunkerChain Labs inc. has been tasked with enabling a “war games” protocol built entirely on a Blockchain, the software technology that began with bitcoin. This new project, code named “Peerplays”, uses a high speed program called Graphene to automatically connect players from all around the world and enable online gaming and wagering that is highly resistant against cheating.

In the 1983 hit movie “War Games” a supercomputer called WOPR mistook a computer game for real-life, and almost set off a Global Thermonuclear War. Lucky for us, Peerplays is programmed to remain neutral. This new Blockchain database will contain a public record of gaming history that allows auditors to prove afterwards that games are being played without manipulation.

You Can Now Buy Games on Steam Using Bitcoin

Valve has partnered with Bitcoin payment service Bitpay to bring everyone’s favorite cryptocurrency to games platform Steam. Bitpay says it was approached by the company because it wanted to internationalize its operation, making it easier for Steam users in emerging markets to to buy games without using a credit card.

“While more users are coming online in these countries, traditional payment options like credit cards often aren’t available,” said Bitpay in a blog post. “As the internet’s universal currency, Bitcoin will allow Steam to easily reach gamers in every market around the world — without the high fees or the risk of chargeback fraud that come with card payments.”
