In his recent tweet, Coinbase co-founder Fred Ehrsam voiced his predictions about full-fledged gaming economies becoming a reality in 10–15 years. Ehrsam, who was a big fan of World of Warcraft (WoW) before joining forces with the San Francisco-based crypto behemoth, is certain that cryptocurrencies will be able to transform the current labor market, completely changing the definition of the word “work” itself.

Gaming economies have been around for years. According to Ehrsam’s estimations, he would earn around $0.87 for each hour of him playing WoW. However, they remain closed to the general public, but cryptocurrencies, according to Ehrsam, could be a game changer.
