Polygon Launches Unit to Grow Blockchain Gaming, NFTs

Polygon has launched Polygon Studios, focused on helping to advance blockchain gaming and non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

  • The Ethereum-scaling project said Monday the new unit will "bridge the gap between Web 2 and Web 3 gaming."
  • The division will look to attract big brands and franchises looking to launch games and NFTs.
  • Polygon says it already has more than 100,000 gamers and over 500 decentralized apps, including gaming projects such as Aavegotichi, Decentraland and Skyweaver, and NFT marketplace OpenSea.
  • Polygon Gaming Studio aims to help developers create blockchain-enabled gaming, while Polygon NFT Studio will aid the development of custom NFT models and marketplaces.
  • Polygon has attained a great deal of popularity among developers seeking to escape the high transaction fees on the Ethereum mainnet and in May attracted an undisclosed investment from billionaire investor Mark Cuban.
