On the other hand blockchain games provide the quality people are mad about since ancient times.  That is about uniqueness, individuality. Playing traditional games the users have certain functions package therefore the principle of uniqueness is excluded while blockchain offers completely different approach. In 2017 the Canadian company AxiomZen released the first fully-functional blockchain game Crypto Kitties. The game became extremely popular all over the world within a short period of time.

Ethereum is the most respected blockchain platform due to its status and reputation. The first blockchain game Crypto Kitties was launched on Ethereum platform but it has two essential

disadvantages. Foremost gaming industry is not among the project priorities despite of the fact that more than 80 games have been already launched on Ethereum. On the other hand Ethereum transaction rate is lower than competitor’s one.

The principle advantage is that most large blockchain gaming platforms like WAX or Play Bets use ERC-20 standard on the Ethereum blockchain. Moreover TRX tokens were also launched using ERC-20 standard.

Meanwhile TRON took a distinct course towards blockchain gaming industry leading offering better conditions than Ethereum.

TRON is providing migration from ERC-20 standard to their own standard TRON-20 becoming independent from Ethereum network.

TRON offers high transaction rate (up to 2 000 transactions per second in comparison with 15-25 transactions per second in Ethereum).

The company announced fund establishing for blockchain games developers planning to invest $100 ml there in the next three years.

TRON-20 uses Solidity, the same software language as ERC-20 use therefore TRON is able to drain away blockchain gaming market participants who now use Ethereum
