A big challenge that the cryptocurrency industry faces is that the average person doesn’t have the trading know-how. More so, wrapping one’s head around the concept of blockchain and how cryptocurrency can be used in real life is not always easy for everyone.
Animonica aims to change that with a new mobile game that is in the works.
Gamification has long been used to help people achieve their goals and learn new things. Using this technique to help people learn how to trade cryptocurrencies is a brilliant idea.
“The mobile game publisher company is partnering with Japanese developer Red Robot to make a gamified cryptocurrency wallet app with built-in tutorials and features to educate everyday consumers”, Stockhead reports.
While trading cryptocurrencies may not be that complex of a process, it can seem daunting to those who are not tech-savvy. Individuals who have had some experience will say, however, that anyone can do it.
Animonica believes the same, thus the creation of the game. They want to boost awareness of the industry and educate the general public on how to trade cryptocurrencies.
“The app will target audiences who have little knowledge of cryptocurrency, and will educate users utilising principles of gamification to lower the barriers of entry to cryptocurrency trading.”
The game will have its own in-game cryptocurrency, which players can earn as they play. This cryptocurrency can then be used to learn more about “real” cryptocurrencies and other products like “cryptogames” and “cryptocollectibles”.
With this app, Animonica hopes to reach the masses and encourage them to get involved in the cryptocurrency market.
