Diving Into the Themes: Fully On-Chain Game and Web3+AI Integration

As a testament to the pioneering spirit of SevenX Ventures, the Nitro Hackathon features two themes – "Fully On-Chain Game" and "Web3+AI Applications."

Web3 and blockchain have sparked a wave of innovation in the gaming industry. Developers are continuously exploring the integration of cutting-edge concepts such as NFTs, tokenomics, and decentralized technology stacks with conventional gaming models. This fusion introduces players to on-chain asset ownership and an open economy that provides individuals autonomy over their in-game assets. By integrating web3 concepts like programmability and decentralization, games have the power to put assets, user data, game logic, and more for a fully on-chain gaming experience. The existing technology has paved the way for high-quality Web3 RPGs, SLGs, FPSs, and other genres to thrive.

Meanwhile, the "Web3+AI Applications" theme is a convergence of two of the most groundbreaking technologies of our time – blockchain and artificial intelligence. As AI continues to make significant strides, its fusion with the rapid breakthroughs within blockchain technology can also spark limitless creativity on the consumer side, offering a new way to create, interact, and motivate. This mix has the potential to transform traditional mobile internet products and breathe new life into a consumer market that's become oversaturated.
