It looks like FTX.US, the US division of global cryptocurrency derivatives and spot exchange FTX, is launching a new blockchain game console.
According to a job advertisement on a cryptocurrency exchange, the company is looking for software developers for its upcoming blockchain module and games. The new game console will aim to attract more game developers to a blockchain-based game system that stimulates players through cryptographic tokens and non-fungible tokens (NFT).
The job advertisement stated that Oslo Børs is looking for software engineers with deep knowledge of the C # programming language and the Unity game engine. FTX did not respond to Cointelegraph’s requests for comment at press time.
The new platform will reportedly be offered as Crypto as a Service, allowing game developers to integrate N-token support and cryptography.
As Cointelegraph reported in November 2021, FTX announced $ 100 million in GameFi ecosystem financing in partnership with Solana Ventures and Lightspeed Venture Partners. The GameFi ecosystem has become one of the most important uses in the crypto industry in 2021 as major technology giants have invested heavily in the new Play-for-Profit (P2E) gaming ecosystem.

Blockchain games and the concept P2E have given rise to completely opposite opinions in the gaming industry. On the other hand, traditional gaming companies like to hate the upcoming GameFi industry, calling it a “house of cards” and a “scam”, while Web3 fans see it as the game of the future. Reddit co-founder Alexis Ohanian recently stated that P2E will control the gaming industry with over 90% share in the near future.
According to gaming statistics firm Newzoo, the gaming sector worldwide generates over $ 100 billion in annual revenue and is expected to exceed $ 200 billion over the next two years.
