CryptoArcade: A Cloud Gaming System with Blockchain-based Token Economy

CryptoArcade is a token-based cloud gaming system that employs blockchain-empowered cryptocurrency as a payment method for players using cloud gaming services. In CryptoArcade, the user purchases the token in advance and then consumes the token to start the service, then connected the service with the URL, just like the traditional physical arcade. By using cryptocurrency, CryptoArcade provides a transparent and resource-aware pricing method, it also enables a time-irrelevant silent payment on the floating price to protect users’ payment.
