Reggie Fils-Aimé says he is a ‘Believer In Blockchain’ – IGN

Former Nintendo of America president Reggie Fils-Aimé is a big supporter of blockchain technology.

But blockchain, which is used to trade and register cryptocurrencies and NFTs, can not only be used by developers as a money-making scheme, Fils-Aimé said. Instead, it should be player-focused.

Speaking at last month’s SXSW event in Texas, which was seen by Nintendo Life, Fils-Aimé said, “I believe in blockchain, I think it’s a really compelling technology.”

“I also believe in the concept of ‘games to own’ in video games,” he continued. “And I say that as a player where I may have invested 50 hours in a game, 100 hours in a game, and there are some games I have invested 300 hours in,” he continued. “When I’m ready to move on to something else, would not it be great to make money on what I’ve built?
