Polygon X Immutable
Polygon Labs on Monday announced its partnership with Immutable to build a gaming blockchain. According to the report, the partnership will help to quicken the adoption of Web3 and the development of decentralized games.
The Ethereum layer-2 blockchain made the announcement one week before the Polygon zKEVM goes to Mainnet Beta and is called “the Holy Grail of Ethereum scaling,” the report states.
President of Polygon Labs, Ryan Wyatt, said in a statement that this partnership will help them in their mission of making players own digital assets.
“Partnering with Immutable is a monumental step forward in our mission to empower developers and enable users to truly own their in-game assets,” Ryan said.
He further added, “By leveraging Immutable’s top world-class gaming platform, game development becomes seamless, allowing for the creation of rich and unique gaming experiences.”
Robbie Ferguson, Immutable’s president, and co-founder said that combining with Polygon will make digital ownership available to users and bring Web3 closer to them.
“By combining the #1 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,” Robbie said.
“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,” Robbie added.
What is Immutable zKVEM
According to the report, Immutable zKVEM is a new EVM-compatible ZK-rollup powered by Polygon technology and with full Immutable platform support. This zKVEM was created to allow game studios and single developers to build games that will allow players to own digital assets and make Web3 games that have been developed easier, faster, and less risky. Game developers can now have access to documents and can begin early combinations with Immutable zKVEM, which will be launched in the coming months.
So many decentralized apps, gaming blockchains, and financial institutions like Nubank, JP Morgan, and other fintech have built on the polygon blockchain.
