Gamers are easily the most under rated people. I do not say this because i have liked the world of warcraft better than my world of real people and human touch, but i say this because tech has given me no choice but to see the corrupt society that sucks on the trends that gamers set shamelessly.
If you are a gamer chances are that you have been discriminated, stereotyped and judged upon frequently. But, people forgot that all the good things in the world today have come out of a long and tedious process of gaming and competing over it by smaller cliques, who loved to play. And that has made all the difference in the world.
The greatest thing of all times, think about it, what is it? Chances are if the computers, iPhones or the internet did not come to your mind, WIFI did. This has been a brainchild of a small group of gamers, the inception and popularity of all tech things like the move from dial-up internet to the devices, broadband, LAN, optic, Bluetooth, infrared, WAP, it all has its roots in the hearts and souls of gaming freaks.
The gamers are in part responsible for the advent of text messages, video conferences, snapchat, Tinder and the likes of all social media.
From Mario Brothers to Augmented and Virtual reality has been a very very long journey. And the gamers that so many people think are stinky, fat, unshaved, immature, purposeless, couch potatoes, have been the driving force for all of it. Gamers have always beta tested technologies, whether it may be blockchain, bitcoin, personal and family computers, Gameboys, Playstations, Macbooks, mobile phones, applications, browser revolution from Microsoft Explorer that is still trying to load in some part of the world to Chrome, Safari and Mozilla.
From communities they created, to the games they demanded and pulled out of the creators, to jobs they created and to the tech that solely belongs to them, this blockchain section salutes y’all. Thanks for the internet, WIFI, Bitcoin, Ethereum, Metamask, Trust Wallet, Decentralized web and what not! We all love you!
