League of Legends is one of the largest played games in North America. Currently the game hosts over 32.5 million players. The game has recently seen large partnerships in its e-sports scene. Teams such as Fnatic partnering with the exchange Crypto.com which has seen partnerships from names such as UFC lately. Evil Geniuses is another large team partnering (source) with a crypto gambling site. The scene sees a sharp connection between gamers and crypto enthusiasts alike. Even companies like AMC enter the scene.
So what would crypto look like in League of Legends?
Nobody knows for sure what it might look like implemented but we have some good guesses. League of legends players own “skins” which are like costumes for various champions. These skins provide unique visual appearances. Skins are sold in the games public shop in the client for the most part. There was a previous time period where skins could be redeem as collectible codes. Unique ideas get presented when NFTs get brought into the picture with skins. Hackers of League of Legends accounts would not be able to steal collectibles.
We surely imagine seeing projects like OpenSea’s NFT platform being connected to League profiles. Users could own NFTs for limited skins and connect their Ethereum ID to redeem the skin on their profile.
We also can imagine Riot Points on the platform being converted to a localized cryptocurrency. Research has shown anything can be a billion dollar crypto project worth investing in. Users could store their currency offline on secure hardware devices to hold long term. Users can invest in the success of Riot sort of like a stock. The currency could implement a burn system and create a token. The token could be traded off platform for everyone to be able to invest.
What are the craziest things Riot Games could implement?
Riot endless options when it comes to opportunities in the blockchain space. If the company continues to expand out to other games like earlier in the year, we could see a metaverse. A world where users could show off their NFT skins or other collectibles. Nobody knows the full stretches of where technology reaches in the near future, our team is excited though.
