Recently, an unprecedented innovation has emerged in the world of gaming: a blockchain NFT game called ‘Leap to NFT’, designed for the famous console known as Game Boy. 

See all the details below.

NFT on Game Boy: blockchain innovation in the gaming world

The world of cryptocurrency and blockchain has accustomed us to seeing and using protocols, dApps and video games that once seemed unattainable. 

As we know, the complexity of creating interesting products and the lack of a solid and affordable foundation to build on were once major obstacles. 

However, NFTs have opened up new prospects for the large-scale adoption of blockchain, and this sector has gradually begun to expand and embrace other areas beyond art, such as music, film and especially video games.

And it is precisely in the world of video games that we are witnessing fascinating and innovative dynamics such as “play-to-earn”, game objects expressed as NFTs and digital marketplaces based on such tokens. 

Now, as expected, another important novelty has emerged: an NFT blockchain video game called “Leap to NFT”, created for the famous Game Boy console.

In the specific case of the Game Boy, we see that the operation will be based on playing a special video game that will eventually allow the player to obtain a dedicated NFT. As stated in the press release, this NFT will contain exclusive content.

The mastermind behind this unique project is the Italian startup Hoken Tech, which has a solid presence in the field of NFTs and the creation of blockchain-based video games. 

The startup also has other exclusive projects under its belt, and was recently featured prominently at DigithOn 2023, along with the 100 best Italian startups.

It should be noted that this is a video game developed specifically for a physical console, which also requires a specific cartridge created specifically for the game. However, the team has generously decided to give everyone the opportunity to play this extraordinary experience and acquire the corresponding NFT.

Leap to NFT: an innovative video game distributed by NFT

We also see that by connecting to the dedicated Leap to NFT page on Itch, users will be able to play this video game directly through the browser on both PCs and smartphones. 

The simple interface makes the experience accessible to all, and those who complete the video game will be rewarded with an NFT.

In terms of the technology used, the video game is based on the EOS blockchain. Once players have completed the experience, they will be able to confirm the transaction with their wallet (Anchor Wallet) to receive the associated NFT and discover its secret content.

This is certainly an extraordinary video game, with an accessible learning curve and an innovative element that has never been seen before. This title brings a breath of fresh air to the world of blockchain-based video games and NFTs.

Google allows advertising for NFT games, but with some restrictions 

NFT-based games are about to get a major boost thanks to Google’s announcement of an update to its advertising policy. 

In a post on its blog, the tech giant has confirmed that the new update, which comes into effect on 15 September, will allow NFT games to be advertised. 

However, Google has made it a condition that such ads are only allowed if they do not promote any form of gambling or related services.

In its advertising policy update, Google therefore maintains its ban on ads for games that promote NFT gambling, whether against other players or for prizes such as NFT or cryptocurrency

Similarly, the ban on social casino games such as poker and roulette, which reward players with real-world prizes for betting on NFT, remains in place.

The company also announced that anyone wishing to run ads related to gambling with NFT must comply with Google’s gambling and gambling advertising policy and obtain the appropriate Google Ads approval.

Finally, Google requires all advertisers to comply with local laws in the regions where they intend to target their ads. Finally, this new policy applies to all Google users worldwide.
