Polygon Launches Unit to Grow Blockchain Gaming, NFTs
19 Jul, 2021•1 min read•Blockchain
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.
