American developer of computer games Valve Corporation is working on a blockchain upgrade for its own online service Steam. This was reported by one of the company's employees, UTB reports.
According to the source, the new solution will track the achievements of each player and statistics, in particular - titles, discounts and more.
With the help of the update, the company plans to collect information about strong gamers who are worthy of participating in e-sports tournaments. So, Valve wants not only to sell games, but also to track the entire life cycle of the user.
Officially, the giant of the gaming industry has not confirmed this information, but it is known that the company is looking for developers and blockchain-specialists who will help in creating a new product.
Let's note, for the first time Valve announced its intention to create a service on a blockchain in 2015. In 2017 it became known that Steam no longer supports bitcoin as a method of payment because of high commissions for a transaction.
