Grzonkowski, S., & Corcoran, P. M. (2009). A secure and efficient micropayment solution for online gaming. Paper presented at the Games Innovations Conference, 2009. ICE-GIC 2009.
An innovative micropayment solution is proposed which incorporates both distributed security and social networking features. This has significant potential to impact on both the provision of new services and community features in online massive multiplayer online role-playing gaming (MMORPG) worlds. Initial feasibility implementation and testing of the micropayments system on both desktop and handheld device clients is presented. The system is well suited to gaming applications and our preliminary studies indicate the practical feasibility of integrating it within an operational MMORPG architecture.
