Jakarta, Gizmologi – The crypto gaming trend is predicted to find its momentum in 2022. This is based on the findings in the report “Five Ways the Crypto World Will Change in 2022” published by BitMEX recently.
The report reveals a clearer view according to experts from BitMEX on the significant developments that will shape the world’s crypto space in the coming year.
The crypto investment platform sees the rapid development of blockchain as it is, showing significant changes. Where this encourages the industry to be able to evaluate trends and readjust strategies as needed.
According to Alexander Höptner, CEO of BitMEX, the company has shared industry insights into the cryptocurrency and blockchain space globally to help the public better understand and be able to take advantage of this revolutionary technology.
“At this time we are very pleased to be able to share our latest information with Indonesia, which is home to the seventh-largest crypto user base in the world,” said Alexander in a press release received by Gizmologi in Jakarta.
Crypto Gaming Trends
The report notes that various crypto gaming concepts such as play-to-earn have taken over the world. And with gameplay quality set to improve, crypto gaming adoption could grow exponentially in 2022.
BitMEX insists that in the next few years it will be possible for millions of users to discover crypto through games. Given that one in every two game developers want to switch to blockchain and NFT.
A crypto gaming coin that supports the play-to-earn concept will probably be more developed than other coins as its success is driven by real changes in consumer behavior.
On the other hand, Solana, a public blockchain platform, is also one of the developments to watch as it is predicted to reduce Ethereum’s dominance very soon. Despite having increased more than 11,400 percent by 2021, the project still has room for further growth, thanks to its advantages.
Solana tends to make the transaction process faster and cheaper compared to other leading projects. Meanwhile, millions of crypto-curious looking for more exposure from Bitcoin and Ethereum are predicted to catalyze Solana’s growth.
Crypto Potential in Indonesia
BitMEX recognizes that Indonesia is a rapidly growing crypto industrial market, with crypto transactions surging to 859 trillion rupiahs (US$59.8 billion) in 2021 while in 2020 it was only 60 trillion rupiahs (US$4.2 billion).
“We hope that our survey will help the crypto community in Indonesia to gain insight into the future of the industry and to discover new opportunities,” added Höptner.
Other significant changes that stood out from the BitMEX survey, include the disappearance of the gender gap among crypto adopters, with more women than ever entering the crypto space by 2022; there is a surge in demand for high-return crypto savings products; as well as record-breaking acquisitions where crypto companies are looking to acquire TradFi companies.
It should be noted that for now the BitMEX report aims to survey the development of the crypto and blockchain industry in 2022 and beyond, and it is likely that there will be unexpected developments in the industry that will surprise not only the public but observers as well.
