The published press release revealed that the chip giant is working with Blockchain Robot Cache and ULTRA technology providers - both are working on developing and servicing Blockchain-based online gaming markets. These markets aim to establish new, secure purchasing options and distribution channels for game publishers and users.

Blockchain Game Alliance (BGA) is an organization involved in adopting Blockchain technology in games by promoting the creation of common standards, facilitating networking and knowledge sharing, and encouraging collaboration and implementation of best practices.

AMD is reportedly the first major hardware manufacturer to join the Alliance, which owns the token creator Enjin Fig and veteran of Blockchain EverdreamSoft games.
