A long-term partnership has been announced between PUBG developer Krafton and Solana Labs, developers and maintainers of the Solana blockchain, to build blockchain and NFT-based games and services. PUBG will power its own Web3 offerings by creating play-to-earn experiences.
“Through this cooperation, Krafton will acquire the insight needed to accelerate its investment in and output of blockchain-based experiences” -Hyungchul Park, lead of Web3 Roundtable at Krafton.Bitcoin.com
The speed and the low fees that Solana offers to its users were big factors in its selection and that will potentially push other leading developers considering blockchain gaming to use Solana as their development chain. Note that Krafton is also developing a joint metaverse platform with Naver Z, which has experience in building with 3D worlds and AI.
