The world’s first community-led gaming platform, Metacade has partnered with Polygon Labs to drive user acquisition and testing of new games.
The partnership is expected to bring a wider audience of gamers from around the world to Metacade. Speaking on the partnership, Metacade’s CEO, Russell Bennett, said:
“This collaboration has always been a part of our goals, driven by our profound respect for Polygon Labs’ remarkable work and our shared passion for blockchain gaming. After all, it’s evident that the Polygon protocols will play a pivotal role in the future of the industry.”
“My team and I are working tirelessly to deliver a modern UI that can scale for both off-chain and on-chain usage within our game suite. Furthermore, we’re dedicated to supporting hundreds of new games across all formats. Developing on Polygon will help us deliver a bigger and better Metacade primed for the growing global GameFi market,” he added.
Metacade has a goal to supercharge, reward and connect developers and players with its plug-and-play initiatives and testing, early access, dev-player collaboration, financial rewards, gigs, accolades and a thriving ecosystem, all in a seamless, enjoyable platform.
Polygon’s Role in Gaming
Metacade is entering this partnership with Polygon, an Ethereum Layer 2 scaling solution network in order to fasttrack the achieving of its goals. Metacade finds Polygon particularly suitable because it has developed a growing suite of protocols for developers to gain easy access to major scaling solutions, including Layer 2s (zero-knowledge rollups), sidechains, app-specific chains and data availability protocols.
These scaling solutions are critical in the world of gaming. Polygon in particular has revolutionized GameFi by addressing the scalability and cost issues that once hindered the growth of blockchain gaming.
The efficient scaling and low fees have also made it possible for developers to create immersive, blockchain-powered games that offer true ownership of in-game assets and the potential for financial rewards, which aligns with Metacade’s vision of delivering the latest in premium gaming to its customers.
Also commenting on the partnership, Head of Partnerships at Metacade Dennis Lavelle said:
“The amount of conversations we’ve had with gaming studios and blockchains this Q3 about where the industry is moving led us to the decision to broaden our product offering. It’s the natural evolution of Metacade, rather than a tangent.”
We’ll always stay true to our roots in arcade gaming but embracing modern mobile gaming puts us in a significantly stronger position to capture a bigger slice of the gaming pie, and also attract more investment in the MCADE token and consequently reward the loyalty of our investor community,” he added.
Enhancing the Gaming Experience
Gaming has become an integral part of the crypto and decentralized finance (DeFi) ecosystem. Looking at the proliferation of gaming projects, it is clear that GameFi is heading somewhere, and the partnership between Polygon and Metacade is a critical one towards bringing the space to that point.
By bringing scaling and lower cost to the GameFi space, the two companies are helping to increase developers’ participation in building the industry and making it more fun, rewarding and resilient.
Going forward, Metacade plans to enter more strategic partnerships with other key players in the industry to further deliver quality to the teeming population of gaming enthusiasts around the world and to make the industry more rewarding.
