The Gaming Arts Music and Entertainment industries have a strong foundation in Hong Kong and the rapid development of digitalization have prompted new offerings and innovations. Hong Kong presents vast opportunities for companies or start-ups of any size to enter Asia and Mainland China.” Doris Fong, Head, Creative Industries, InvestHK.
“We are very happy to participate in the Game On! Summit! We see the Chinese market as one of the biggest growth areas in the Blockchain gaming space, and we look forward to connecting more deeply with the community in APAC helping to advance the cause of in-game ownership and play-to-earn models globally,” said Jason Brink, President of Blockchain, Gala Games.
“We think the next revolution of GAME is here with NFTs that enable true digital ownership regardless of it being an online or offline asset. This will affect many of the traditional businesses and business model as we know it. Looking forward to hear from the other speakers and from the start-ups who will be pitching,” said Kelly Choo, Founding Partner, True Global Ventures.
The market for GAME industries is growing faster than ever driven by Millennials and the Gen Z generation and the advent of technologies like blockchain and NFTs have unlocked business models that were hitherto unavailable. To specify a metric based on marketplace data, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) surged to new highs in the second quarter, with $2.5 billion in sales so far this year, up from just $13.7 million in the first half of 2020! The NFT Sales on OpenSea was near USD$150m just in June 2021 and rose to USD2billion in transactions in August 2021. In-Game items, Art Memorabilia, Musical Moments and Entertainable Moments have all now found a place in the digital realm via NFTs.
