XAYA is the product of Malta-based company Autonomous Worlds. This open source, peer-to-peer platform promises to completely decentralize the video game industry, a step beyond most others which take a hybrid approach.
XAYA was inspired by Huntercoin, a famous chapter in early blockchain gaming history. The idea was to put an entire game world on the blockchain, with no mods, admins or central server required. Truly autonomous.
Scalability issues plagued the Huntercoin client, however, and it could only handle one simple game. XAYA is an entire decentralized console, allowing all kinds of video game developers to deploy their games to XAYA’s peer-to-peer network. It also facilitates easy trustless exchange of items or even accounts.
This is made possible with some clever new innovations. Chief among them "game channels," an adaptation of the Lightning Network concept. Settling the results of a match on the blockchain is only necessary if someone tries to cheat, which is disincentivized through clever token economics.
Another remarkable adaptation is ephemeral timestamps, a means of limiting the amount of data needed on the blockchain to settle disputes over game channels. Academic research on these techniques by the Xaya team can be found in the journals Ledger and Springer.
Beyond blockchain, Taurion is one wicked-cool game. Elements of 4X, RTS, and human mining come together to form a new game the like of which has never been seen before. Set many 1,000s of years in the future, players explore the planet Taurion to find their fortunes, form alliances, and battle against each other.
