A little more about the young, but successful video game company Robot Cache

Robot Cache is the first decentralised video game distribution platform created in January 2018 by Brian Fargo, an American video game designer, producer, programmer and executive. The young company, located in Santa Cruz de Tenerife, allows for the first time the digital purchase and sale of video games, using blockchain technology. Let's remember that blockchain technology allows any type of transaction between two or more people without the need for intermediaries, through the Internet in a secure way.

In this way, Robot Cache will allow the resale of second-hand games and the exchange of games, which until now has always been done in physical form. In this way, when reselling digital games, the Robot Cache user will receive 25% of the money and the title company will receive 70% (publishers who wish to receive less than 70% so that the user who resells the game can take more money) of the price at which the title is sold on the second-hand market. In return, players will receive Iron, a digital currency that can be used to buy new games on the platform.

The currency is designed to maximise economic benefit and security for players and publishers. It is based on the ERC20 token, so Iron is universally compatible with platforms that allow the creation of smart contracts based on the blockchain model, such as Ethereum.
