[ SIDECHAINS ]   Ok simply put a side chain is a separate blockchain that is attached to its parent blockchain(mainchain) using a two-way connection.   Stripping it back further, it’s a system where you can move items from one record center to another and back. Check out this awesome and easy to understand diagram, from Hackernoon.

  [ SO WHY DO I NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SIDECHAINS? ]   A Sidechain helps to solve one of the biggest issues for the crypto world and blockchain gaming. Speed. When using a sidechain, instead of calculating everything in a single big blockchain, some of it can be offloaded to the sidechain. Thus reducing the need and load on the mainchain. Thereby increasing speed.   Sidechains are also important in that they help to improve the scalability of blockchains in general. This is important for things like gaming where it’s possible that actions will be taken frequently, think creating in-game items like Runes or Characters in Along with the Gods.   [ A BIG EXAMPLE THAT HELPS BOIL IT DOWN ]   CryptoKitties- the once most popular blockchain game at one stage was responsible for 25% of the transactions on the entire Ethereum blockchain. This caused delays and load issues. If they had deployed a side chain, then it’s possible that they would have had a much better player experience for all involved.   [ IF YOU TAKE NOTHING ELSE AWAY FROM THIS ]   Just remember that Sidechains are a way to help create more speed, more scalability and better quality of life in gaming for players.   The Blockchain Version of Along with the Gods is getting closer and closer and we just can’t wait!   Till the next blockchain article, happy adventuring!   Medium: Twitter:

    As I know, blockchain is getting pretty popular, so it's not surprising that there are so many blockchain versions of different games, and I think it's actually a good move. I'm thinking about working with myself because I believe that running a blockchain app can be quite profitable, and it's better to start developing it before the market is full of such apps.

    To be honest, it's quite hard to understand for me. I am a beginner trader and I need time to understand everything related to trading, blockchain and so on. I currently trade at and it seems to me that this is a really great platform for those who are just starting to learn how to trade cryptocurrencies.
