As Atheios is based on smart contracts, the intention is to develop and connect the network in a game industry context. With the network being established there can be interesting scenarios to us ATH as currentcy in gaming. The developer has a lot of context in this area which could help building an ecosystem. The developer provides regular updates on the current start of Atheios integration.
Atheios Spark is currently an internal project being developed by the Atheios team using Unity to explore various ways the Atheios blockchain can integrate with video games. The Atheios Spark client currently works as a basic functioning Atheios wallet, but we are working on adding more support for things such as tokens, and smart contracts.
Behind the scenes
We have a few working video game environments constructed, but we are still working on connecting these environments up with gameplay that interacts with smart contracts on the Atheios blockchain.
We hope to also leverage the Atheios Spark client as an Interactive Story Telling & Education Tool to help lower the barrier of entry into the crypto space.
A smart contract is a computer protocol intended to digitally facilitate, verify, or enforce the negotiation or performance of a contract. Smart contracts allow the performance of credible transactions without third parties. These transactions are trackable and irreversible.
Examples of working Atheios smart contracts are:
- Joules, a self sustainable smart contract. Joules works by paying dividends out to it's stake holders.
