Will there be a difference between games and gambling in the future?

On his blog, Consensys’ Evan Van Ness has some good insights about the future of games involving the blockchain. He correctly notes that even in skill-based games, if a player has to put a small amount of cryptocurrency on the line, she is in a way placing a bet on her ability to play at least. In multiplayer games, this aspect becomes even more pronounced because more uncertainty is involved.

The broader point van Ness makes is that some of the applications developed on the blockchain are starting to go beyond the legacy analogues, which will in the future create interesting debates.
