Blockchain scaling solution Polygon (MATIC) is teaming up with the Ethereum (ETH)-based gaming project Immutable (IMX) to build a blockchain focused on gaming.
The project, titled Immutable zkEVM, is a zero-knowledge (ZK) roll-up that is “slated for launch in the coming months,” according to a new Polygon press release.
Says Robbie Ferguson, Immutable president and co-founder,
“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.”
The blockchain gaming industry represented 49% of all daily blockchain activity last year, according to a report from DappRadar. The data acquisition and analysis firm also notes that the blockchain gaming transaction count increased by 94.17% in 2022 compared to the previous year.
