Westworld, Fallout, Blockchain & Cryptocurrency | Chris on Tech


hey everyone welcome back to another exciting edition of Chris on tech I of course am Chris and today we’re gonna be looking at blockchain and cryptocurrencies but probably not in the way you’re thinking not sure if you’re aware of the lawsuit that has just been settled between Beth Sita games I believe who is the purveyors of the very fine Fallout franchise and a company behind a Westworld themed game for mobile in a nutshell the third-party development firm that that Sita had contracted to make the fallout shelter game used some of the technology and IP and all of that that they had developed that as legally owned by Beth Sita and used it to create the west-world game by the end of this month the beginning of next month the west-world game will cease to function which is you know a pain in the butt for people who love the game but the most interesting piece for me about this is that there is an in-game currency in the bus world game and part of their notes that they sent out after this ruling is that you need to spin that currency before the cutoff date because then it becomes useless and valueless it struck me that this is one of those places that cryptocurrency actually could have helped and kind of lived up to its promise that we’ve all been kind of fed over the last couple of years if they would have made that in-game currency a ERC 20 token or something of that nature a fungible token on the etherion standard then it could stand alone apart from the game meaning that the game shuts down that currency still exists it’s just a token on a blockchain somewhere in the etherium world and it would be it’s conceivable that then another game or a trading kind of exchange could create smart contracts to allow you to take those tokens that currency and either bring it into a new game and use it exchange it for another token it would live on past the death of this game and that’s really where cryptocurrency Shyne in my opinion the speculation that’s gone on for the last two years has been weird and kind of silly but the promise of the technology itself has never really wavered in my opinion just hasn’t been implemented correctly or leveraged the way it should be and this would have been a perfect perfect way to do that especially with the unfortunate circumstances of how this ended it would have shown a light very brightly on the positive aspects of cryptocurrency and blockchain because it would have been able to escape this downward trajectory that the west-world app is on and and live on so that’s it I just wanted to kind of highlight the story and when I was thinking around blockchain since that’s my life now it’s what I do for a living and and how this technology could have been applied to the situation to make it better if you have any questions about that or comments I’ll kick it over to you let me know in the comments what you think if you think I’m right or wrong if you think that cryptocurrency wouldn’t have been a good idea to implement in the west-world game let me know your thoughts in the comments and we’ll have a discussion about it yeah I think that’s it for me we’re done go ahead and like this if you enjoyed it if you didn’t you can give it a thumbs down that’s entirely up to you it’s a free Internet until I see you in the next video have a good one you
