Netmarble Partners with Klaytn to Accelerate Blockchain Ecosystem Maturity | Pocket Gamer.biz
Mobile games company Netmarble has revealed a strategic partnership with the nonprofit Klaytn Foundation to accelerate global adoption and ecosystem maturity.
Netmarble has launched a proprietary blockchain ecosystem as part of this, called MBX, in addition to using a blockchain ecosystem based on the Klaytn mainnet for its Marblex wallet.
The developer posted a 23.8% increase in the fourth quarter of 2021 compared to the previous quarter, but for the full fiscal year, it recorded an increase in revenue of only 0.8%. Through this venture with Klaytn, Netmarble will be able to advance the key narratives of its games while incorporating blockchain technology.
Three games from the Netmarble catalog – A3: Still Alive, Ni no Kuni: Cross Worlds and Everybody’s Marble: Meta World – have already been confirmed as gradually integrating this ecosystem.
Switch from Web2 to Web3
“This strategic partnership with the Klaytn ecosystem, powered by decentralized applications, will create positive synergy,” said Netmarble CEO Kwon Young-sik.
“We look forward to achieving our goal of advancing Netmarble’s blockchain ecosystem as a whole.”
Klaytn Foundation Director Sam Seo added, “Klaytn plans to be the bridge that connects Web2 game companies to the Web3 arena, and it will allow us to accelerate the expansion of our game universe with key strategic partners like Netmarble”.
Neowiz recently partnered with Klaytn and Neopin for the distribution of a large-scale airdrop campaign as part of the Crypto Golf Impact pre-launch marketing, which will take place on March 25th.
