The Software Company Disrupting Gaming NFTs

For the better part of a decade, the concept of “ownership” in video games has caused a schism between gamers who believe that a game’s creators should hold full ownership rights over the titles they create and those who believe that the games they purchase using their own money should be considered as personal purchased property, even if those purchased games are only digital files rather than physical copies. In years past, the traditional offering for game developers has been to digitally release the video games they create through marketplace platforms such as Steam, or distribution platforms owned and operated by the makers of video games themselves. 


However, due to the growing popularity of alternative forms of payment such as cryptocurrency, many developers and gamers alike have been pondering the possibility of utilizing technology like blockchain to purchase (and retain full ownership over) the games they play.


Currently, each blockchain project exists in its own ether, meaning that there is no complete cross-platform ecosystem available to the blockchain gaming community. Furthermore, the recent innovation of non-fungible tokens — otherwise known and referred to as “NFTs” — has added another element to blockchain technology as unique pieces of digital art that can be bought using cryptocurrency and sold to a user who retains ownership over the piece in question.


Though it may seem complex as to how blockchain technology and NFTs can be fully integrated into the gaming space, one company seeks to become the one-stop shop for this next evolution within the video game industry.


If you mine for ORE, you’re bound to hit gold


Founded and created by Nicholas Donarski, the ORE System, ORE Sys LLC (“ORE”) is a software company revolutionizing the gaming industry by reducing the time, cost, and experience a game developer needs to integrate blockchain technology into their games. Having been made by gamers for gamers, ORE focuses on bringing the gaming community together and introducing NFT ownership into the industry within the U.S. In short, this means that gamers will now truly own the gear, and developers will truly own the game.


According to Donarski, who has more than 20 years of experience operating in the cybersecurity field, the complete ORE system is the first cross-platform ecosystem available to the blockchain community where — for the first time — gamers are able to truly determine if a game or an item within a game they play is worth anything to them as a private consumer.


Blockchain and NFTs specifically will change the world of video games, and the ORE System will change how we see and understand the concept of ‘ownership’ over video games in the future,” says Donarski. “Giving gamers and developers the right of ownership over the products they produce or purchase, compared to the big studios that capitalize on ownership of these titles, will allow them to control how long they play and whether the game is truly worth their time and money.”


This, as Donarski explains it, is where true freedom lies—a freedom that Donarski and his team at ORE wants gamers and developers to fully take back as their own, establishing the concept of ORE as a true disruptor within the video game industry.


Disrupting an established industry with freedom of ownership


It’s never easy to launch a new product or service, especially when your competition is tied to heavily-entrenched and long-lasting competitors within a niche operating space. Regardless, this hasn’t stopped Donarski or his team from wanting to become the leading blockchain gaming platform and community. As a company made by gamers and for gamers, with a unique edge, ORE aims to compete with the likes of notable names such as Steam, Xbox Live, and other established platforms and services for a share of market space in the gaming industry.


“We want to support the community and also help developers make awesome games at the same time,” adds Donarski. “Currently, there is no other gaming or distribution system that gives more back to their community of gamers. Platforms and services offered through companies like Apple, Google, Steam, and others all charge the developer 30% for all of the transactions and earnings on the platform, whereas we only charge them 8% for the exact same offerings.”


As Donarski mentions, the goal with ORE is to do something amazing that adds true intrinsic value within the gaming community by simplifying the integration of blockchain technology to help gamers own their gear, and developers own their games.
