3.3 Decentralization

Decentralization is another benefit of blockchain technology.
Today, in-game items can fetch a lot of money. However, gamers cannot actually own these items as, in their current state, these games are centralized. Thanks to the decentralized structure offered by blockchain technology, gamers can now claim full ownership of game items and trade on blockchain-based marketplaces. This allows gamers the chance to exercise genuine ownership of game items, thus encouraging gamers to play and invest more.
In a centralized system, game developers can face game downtime and data security problems when a server goes down. A decentralized system will allow developers to overcome these problems and improve both data security and user experience.
