QuickSwap x Seedify: A Bold Step towards the Growth of Gaming on the Polygon Network.
It is said that the gaming community was some of the earliest adopters of crypto, and if you drew a Venn diagram that crosses crypto investors and gaming enthusiasts, there will be a significant middle section.
This shows that since its inception, gamers had already adopted crypto as an emerging technology, and its implementation in the gaming world today can thus be said to be a result of innovation.
Gaming has a very long humbling history, for persons like myself who can vividly recall playing games like Super Mario on gaming consoles, it is very obvious that the gaming industry has come quite a long way, from consoles to virtual reality and even more, Blockchain Gaming.
To understand the import of the recent partnership between Seedify and Polygon’s biggest DEX, QuickSwap, it is important that we take a brief walk down the concept of Blockchain Gaming and its development over the years. So in a short while, let’s answer the question:
What is Blockchain Gaming?
The phrase “blockchain gaming” refers to games that are hosted and run on blockchains like Ethereum. Blockchain games are distributed through open-source applications and allow players to possess in-game assets in the form of NFTs, which can be purchased and sold using the user’s cryptocurrency wallet.
Blockchain gaming uses the same technology that underpins cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum to provide actual item ownership.
Blockchain Gaming History…
According to Wikipedia, CryptoKitties, released by Axiom Zen in November 2017 for personal computers, was the first known game to use blockchain technologies. In this game, the player would purchase NFTs with Ethereum cryptocurrency, each NFT consisting of a virtual pet that the player could breed with others to create offspring with combined traits as new NFTs.
The blockchain gaming industry has evolved since CryptoKitties, with more games like HashCraft, Botwars Ultimate Trading, Axie Infinity, and many more as key players in forefront of the growth of the industry.
Today we celebrate the growth and adoption of blockchain gaming on the Polygon network; the partnership of Seedify and QuickSwap. It is quite awesome to know that the journey of Blockchain Gaming has finally commenced on the Polygon Chain.
What are the highlights of this Partnership?
Through this huge partnership, Seedify will bring blockchain gaming applications built on Polygon that were nurtured and launched through the Seedify platform to QuickSwap for DEX listing. This is also huge for the QuickSwap team, as QuickSwap will give exposure and visibility for projects as a Seedify partner through marketing and collaborations.
Another important highlight of this partnership is that QuickSwap will also provide additional essential services to assist simplify launches and promote an infrastructure that allows new Seedify projects to thrive in their early phases of development.
The Polygon ecosystem is expanding, thanks to key players like QuickSwap and many others for consistently putting the space on a platform that drives a lot of traction to it. 2022 is going to be an explosive year, and it is nice to know that strategic moves are already being set in place to further the growth and development of the space.
