Zilliqa’s hardware console and gaming hub will allow non-crypto natives to earn money while playing fun games without the complexity of managing the crypto they earn.”
Cobelea went further to say that the console and gaming hub will be launched in early 2023 once the company broadens its catalog.
Zilliqa hopes to become “the Steam equivalent for Web3 games.”
“With the backing of Zilliqa’s large crypto community and the easy-to-use infrastructure, we have no doubt that we can become the Steam equivalent for Web3 games.”
