Do you remember the times when we played our first games on Dendy or Sony Playstation? It was an amazing experience that we won’t ever forget. But the gaming industry moves forward so fast that right after 3D games, Virtual Reality technology was released and in an even shorter time, Augmented Reality. AR is the sophisticated technology that allows players to project virtual reality into the physical world, the full immersion that gamers have dreamed about for decades. Now it’s here.

According to Infoholic Research, the combined AR gaming market is expected to reach $284.93 billion by 2023. This market potential opens up massive opportunities for companies to invest in AR technology.

One of the best examples of a game that has the potential to become a household favorite is Clash&GO, a mobile game that uses Blockchain & AR technology. It combines several genres like city-building strategy with real time battles and geolocation games, all in augmented reality. Gamers will play right in their real city, building bases around their preferable locations, waging war against enemies, performing geolocation quests with a treasure hunt, and creating clans to confront other players effectively. If you think Pokemon Go was a worldwide hit, this will take it to the next level. For years, gamers have dreamed about taking their virtual achievements into the real world. Now they can hang out in person while interacting online with each other at the same time.

The game is based on Ethereum blockchain which serves as a reliable platform where special CGO tokens are used for in-game activities. People can earn them playing the game, and afterwards, sell them on the exchange. It is the first time in history when blockchain and AR technologies have merged to create a truly impressive product. Not only will Clash&GO revolutionize gaming, it will likely revolutionize social relations too. Watch this space.
