It's not that Blockchain won't be capable.
It's that WHAT do you think is ready now that's so impressive? Most would say Gaming is worth celebrating.
But in comparison:
Gaming on BC is liken to Solitaire or Chess on a Windows LAN party v Global Multiplayer on any game imaginable at 4K, with cheer squad (twitch, YT, etc..), global fanbase (youth into adulthood), Enterprise up the wazoo, technologies emerging constantly, trillions and trillions to be the reward now and into the future.
All cross-intersecting as THE FRONTIER of Virtual/Digital Systems - 'The Future Reality' - Because really, gaming is beyond gaming at this point. The tech of VR itself actually not living up to the hype because that tech doesn't have the infrastructure existing for it to shine yet. 360video a glimpse. 3D might even make a return when VR matures. What is currently it's barrier is that creating environments from scratch for VR still requires immense resources.
AI is developing as the SUPERBRAIN that will expand on all that and essentially replace the human worker. It's in effect already and the "rollover" won't be realised until one looks back and realizes it already happened. Digital Virtual is why 2020 will be recognized as THE RESET. It already is for many industries. Human though. In "reality" is now at limit. We are useless meat packets when performing only physical actions.
But back to Blockchain..
To want to capture even a sliver of that audience is the right mentality here, but how do you think people go from all that out there to this simple ecosystem here. JUST FOR TOKEN REWARDS? ... NO. That's the crazy thing that doesn't seem to allow people here to think rationally. Blockchain has yet to barely morph into that second layer that even important heads here, that ARE committed, agree is needed. Yet no one actually has grand ideas of what. Just trying to emulate success stories/platforms of out there won't be it. Specially when really this is predominantly just code. It's great belief and optimism. But simplicity is the BC system still. That's why I see BC as DNA of future systems.
So to say "I can spit a bit of BC and a new life form emerges because that spit has DNA" is sort of a true statement. But then one is not realising that ACTUALLY, Resources build the organism. DNA just orchestrates the cell processes that transpire as that life form develops.
