I wonder if a game environment with IOTA circulating as money would be viable?
That's the challenge I've decided to adopt. Something that for a long time I've been wondering if would be possible, I have suggested "everywhere" and no one seem to have gotten enought interest on: A game environment with a cryptocurrency circulating as local money seems to be fantastic for me! But as I am a coding semi-illiterare, I have never been bold enough to do it a start... but now, with IOTA, my boldness seem to have grown
Having met an old friend from Tibia times, this idea came back to my mind, and we have decided to create an Open Tibia server, as an experiment to see how far we will be able to go
I have put a blog online at blog.raganius.com, which I'll try to keep updated with our progresses (but to be honest, the game server creation will be the easiest part, as we really don't know if it will be possible to integrate a IOTA wallet into the players' game interface).
At first I imagine that the cryptocurrencies would run as parallel currencies in the game environment (as the game "gold" is a very inflated currency, too easy to earn, it will be like the game's "government money"). So the idea is users being able to make payments directly with crypto, inside the game to other players or npcs (and maybe the game system acting like a escrow). DASH/BTC will be used during users trades, and the game "gold" still used as a game token.
An option that seems to be viable is adopting IOTA (now that it's got no subunits) as the inside game currency (for all trades between player-npc r player-player), And DASH/BTC oly for trades between player-player outside the game environment, website market, etc.
Any help, suggestions and ideas are precious, and welcome
