Immutable, the leading Web3 gaming platform and the top Ethereum scaling blockchain protocol Polygon, announced a strategic alliance aimed at accelerating the development and adoption of Web3 gaming.
Immutable and Polygon received close to $2 billion in investor funding in 2022, making this a partnership that is widely expected to have a significant positive impact on the multi-billion dollar gaming landscape.
As part of the industry-defining alliance, Immutable will power their best-in-class platform products with Polygon’s groundbreaking zero-knowledge technology to accelerate digital ownership for gamers worldwide. This alliance simplifies decision-making for game studios and developers, and provides a smart, safe choice for business leaders that accelerates time-to-market and gives them access to an ecosystem that will be one of the largest and most liquid for end users.
“By combining the number one Web3 gaming platform – currently serving hundreds of game studios and millions of players – with Polygon’s best-in-class zkEVM technology, we are building an Ethereum-centric gaming ecosystem that is poised to take Web3 mainstream and bring digital ownership to millions of people around the world,” said Robbie Ferguson, Immutable President and Co-Founder. “Billions of dollars of skins are sold each year with no rights for players – we’re changing that so players are in control, and ownership is the expectation.”
President of Polygon Labs, Ryan Wyatt, told TechCrunch+ that Web3 would add the first 10 million to 100 million gamers within the next year or two.
Immutable is the global leader in web3 gaming on a mission to bring digital ownership to every player by offering the world’s best games and game development platform.
Polygon Labs develops Ethereum scaling solutions for Polygon protocols. Polygon Labs engages with other ecosystem developers to help make available scalable, affordable, secure and sustainable blockchain infrastructure for Web3.
