Kinguin Launches NFT Marketplace in Partnership with Immutable X
Reading Time: 2 minutes

 

Kinguin is launching its NFT marketplace, in partnership with Immutable X. Featuring 40+ collections and over 200,000 unique NFTs, it will give gaming and esports customers access to a vast array of exclusive NFT offerings.

The marketplace, built on top of the Immutable X protocol, is mixing the familiarity and practicality of web2 with the freedom and potential of web3. Kinguin offers its users the stability and security of an established digital goods marketplace. Some top NFT games like Gods Unchained, Guild of Guardians, PlanetQuest and Habbo Hotel will all offer NFTs on the marketplace, with more to be announced in the coming months.

But there’s more than just the high-quality content that will appeal to Kinguin’s vast community. Immutable X, created by Immutable and Starkware, is the technologically leading layer 2 scaling solution for NFTs on Ethereum. The combination of Immutable’s deep knowledge of blockchain technology with Starkware’s cutting-edge ZK-rollup technology, means the Kinguin NFT Marketplace will be lightning fast (at 9,000 TPS) and carbon-neutral, without compromising on security.

The partnership presents mass adoption opportunities for both developers and end-users. By combining Kinguin’s 13 million registered users with Immutable X’s scaling solution, you don’t have to compromise your assets’ security, transaction speed, gas fees and negative impact when diving deeper into NFT, making it easier to scale the game and NFT industries together.

Other features include a dedicated search option, making it easy for everyone to buy and sell NFTs. Users can also connect their MetaMask crypto wallet with the Kinguin NFT marketplace, a free hot wallet service available as a smartphone app or web browser extension. With that, every user can buy NFTs or deposit Ethereum for purchase purposes and also check their NFT balance.

Robert Kalbarczyk, Chief Operating Officer & Acting CEO at Kinguin said “We remain focused on our community’s interests and passions. With Play and Earn on the rise, this felt like the natural next step for us. We’re thankful to have partners that share our vision and we’re looking forward to working with Immutable X to offer our customers a range of exclusive NFT gaming assets.”

“We’re thrilled to welcome Kinguin’s 13 million users to Immutable’s open order book, and help power the next generation of mainstream gamers to truly own their in-game items,” said Robbie Ferguson, Co-Founder at Immutable. “This is an incredibly significant move — one of the powerhouses of digital goods trading from web2 is expanding their offering to NFTs, and they’ve chosen layer-2 Ethereum as the way to do it. We look forward to helping Kinguin scale this marketplace across hundreds of games and millions of players.”

The NFT marketplace may still be in early stages but long term plans are being considered to ensure its continuous evolution. As well as collaborations with big marketplaces, Kinguin also hopes, in time, to develop its own NFT games.

MultiversX Unveils Breakthrough In Blockchain Sharding; Enables Hyper-Scalability and Interoperability For Top Network

Reading Time: 2 minutes

MultiversX (EGLD), leading smart contract platform known for sharding, has announced the launch of Sovereign Chains, its breakthrough Blockchain-as-a-Service solution for the Web3 ecosystem. The new solution for layer 2s (L2s) inherits and extends further the outstanding capabilities provided by MultiversX, and offers developers a simplified setup process that only takes a few commands.

Beyond industry-leading performance and extended configurability, it also unlocks for the first time seamless interoperability for L2s built atop leading blockchains such as Bitcoin, Ethereum and Solana, solving the issues around fragmentation and isolation. To encourage development on the new Sovereign Chains infrastructure SDK, MultiversX has additionally announced a US$1 million grant program for builders.

In a live demo of the platform’s capabilities, the first Sovereign Chain ever deployed reached a constant throughput of over 70,000 transactions per second. To put this in perspective, existing L2 solutions shifting to Sovereign Chains will be able to see their throughput increase up to 100X. Sovereign Chains make all these leaps in terms of hyper-scalability and interoperability possible with the unique cross-shard module MultiversX operates on, modified and improved for native cross-chain operations, as well as a new consensus mechanism, new execution models and significant VM improvements.

Speaking on the successful rollout of Sovereign Chains, Beniamin Mincu, Co-Founder and CEO of MultiversX, said, “The Web3 world is encumbered by fragmentation and siloed ecosystems that limit interoperability and suffer from scalability issues. Through Sovereign Chains, we have taken the core capabilities of the MultiversX network – scalability, usability and security – and extended them to create the first truly unified Web3 ecosystem in a developer-friendly interface.”

Developers can leverage the powerful Sovereign Chains’ stack to create customized private or public blockchains, with a maximum degree of flexibility. They have the possibility to set, for example, gas fees in the token of their choice and build using any virtual machine, including EVM and the MultiversX VM, to suit their needs. Sovereign Chains can communicate natively with each other without external bridges and their associated risks & complexity, thus being ideal for intuitive and secure solutions for diverse sectors, such as healthcare, education, government services, financial systems or supply chain management.

As one of the most robust blockchain architectures globally, MultiversX boasts an ecosystem of 8200 dApps, with a close-knit community of developers & users spanning 40 countries.

One such developer, Alex Jilavu, Co-Founder and Lead Developer at OneFinity Chain, expressed confidence in the potential of Sovereign Chains to streamline both the development process and adoption, adding, “As a builder, the task of building a project from the ground up is extremely demanding. Sovereign Chains provide the foundational strengths of MultiversX, giving us the room to focus on developing what’s important for our product.”

OneFinity is working on an EVM-compatible platform, looking to open the Sovereign Chains ecosystem to Ethereum users and developers. It joins other companies such as CyberNetwork (GameFi), and Pi Squared (ZK Tech), leveraging MultiversX’s network sharding technology.

In addition to enhancing performance across blockchain networks, Sovereign Chains further inherits MultiversX’s on-chain 2FA capabilities, offering one of the most powerful security layers for users in all of Web3.
