Blockchain Gaming Goes Mainstream: Nefta and GAMI’s Partnership Simplifies the Jump to Web3 Gaming
Nefta, the Web3 technology platform, has partnered with blockchain gaming studio, GAMI, to make the future of Web3 gaming a reality for millions of players.
With a focus on creating accessible and enjoyable games for all, GAMI is on a mission to facilitate the mainstream adoption of Web3 games. With a focus on games created for fun and enjoyment rather than earning, bite-sized and unobtrusive tutorials will help new players understand and engage with Web3 features including earning assets from the game into their own wallet, and being able to buy & sell those assets.
For players already within the Web3 ecosystem, it won’t matter which blockchain their wallet is on, as they can easily log-in and start playing straight away. By partnering with Nefta, GAMI’s games will have access to powerful backend architecture that helps eliminate the segregation of Web3 gaming, creating a unique ‘multi-chain’ game experience.
With Nefta’s blockchain technology, players of GAMI’s titles can earn and own in-game items through gameplay to keep, trade, or sell, without having to connect a wallet. These assets are stored in wallets that are built into the game, and accessible by signing in with an email address. This gives easy access to blockchain gaming for players that are new to Web3.
GAMI’s upcoming battle game, Knockout Wars, allows players from different blockchains to play together for the first time, without the need for new wallet sign-ups. Nefta manages seamless integration of multiple blockchains, creating a frictionless, chain-agnostic gaming experience.
By integrating signup and wallet creation, Web2 and Web3 players can enjoy uninterrupted gameplay and trade assets with integrated and unobtrusive wallets. Nefta’s technology is removing common roadblocks for Web2 players, making the future of Web3 gaming more accessible than ever.
GAMI is proud to operate on the Immutable X (IMX) Blockchain, the premier blockchain platform dedicated to gaming. Nefta has recently made IMX available as a blockchain option in its platform, providing the security of Ethereum with the speed of Solana. With no gas fees for transactions, IMX offers a truly free and accessible Web3 experience for all.
Geeshan Willink, CEO and Co-Founder of Nefta, said: “We’re passionate about making the benefits of item ownership in games accessible, and we are excited to partner with GAMI to make that happen. GAMI will make use of our one-stop-shop toolbox to power the backend blockchain elements. The Nefta programme will be used to create the integrated and unobtrusive wallets and build the architecture to connect, communicate and transact across different blockchains. Our end-to-end platform provides everything GAMI needs to build, launch, and operate high-quality Web3 games, leaving them free to do what they do best; making it easier than ever to enjoy blockchain gaming.”
Junayd Miah, Co-Founder of GAMI, stated, “Our goal is to be the leading gaming studio for a seamless transition from Web2 to Web3 gaming by creating accessible and enjoyable games, without the barrier of blockchain knowledge. We aim to disrupt the mobile gaming industry by leveraging blockchain, NFT and AR technologies to create immersive Play & Earn mobile games. GAMI is on a mission to onboard the next 100 Million mainstream gamers to Web3 by making it as easy as logging into your email.
“By integrating Nefta’s comprehensive Web3 toolbox, we are creating the blockchain architecture to enable multi-chain, multiplayer gameplay. This means it doesn’t matter if you have your wallet on Solana, BSC, Polygon or another blockchain; you can still connect and play with your friends, even if they’re not on any blockchain at all.”
Knockout Wars will be available to download on the Google Play Store by the end of January 2023.
Wemade Presented a Paradigm Shift to Blockchain Gaming at GDC 2023
Wemade, a leading global gaming and blockchain giant founded in South Korea, wrapped up its participation as a Diamond Sponsor at GDC 2023 successfully delivering its ground-breaking vision for the future – a true paradigm shift to blockchain games.
WEMIX PLAY, the company’s global number-one blockchain game platform, lies at the centre of its vision. The Wemade booth was brimming with game companies and blockchain developers from around the globe interested in having a hands-on experience of the WEMIX PLAY offering and getting involved in the expansion of the ecosystem set to change the face of the blockchain gaming industry forever.
During his keynote speech on March 21, CEO Henry Chang introduced the concept of the mega ecosystem that will be created through the WEMIX PLAY inter-game economy and inter-game play where blockchain games, services and real-life economy are to be connected. Henry Chang spoke about the great potential of tokenomics and demonstrated to the audience the ways in which the inter-game economy and playing will continue to bloom in the next few years.
Several core members of the WEMIX team gave insightful lectures on the many benefits and possibilities lying within the blockchain gaming space.
EVP Wonil Suh gave an overview of his experience in servicing many Web3 games, shedding light on the development of Tokenomics from its inception to now, including its generational characteristics, and shared his know-how on the seamless onboarding on the WEMIX PLAY platform, built to support game development and more.
Head of Business Creative Center Robin Seo spoke about the process of transforming games into blockchain games through the four key elements of WEMIX PLAY – Tokenomics, Marketplace, GameFi and Community. Attendees had an opportunity to discover how this transformation can revolutionise gamers’ experience by understanding the entire process that conventional games go through when transforming into blockchain games and what makes WEMIX PLAY unique and competitive in this arena.
Global creator and influencer Myrtle Sarrosa – the first one to issue FanToken through WEMIX PLAY – shared her experiences and takeaways from building an interactive blockchain economy with her fans and expanding the boundaries of community engagement and activities.
Finally, developers interested in WEMIX PLAY and blockchain games participated in a panel discussion, where Wonil Suh, Wook Kim and Robin Seo were available for a Q&A session. The attendees had the opportunity to engage with the WEMIX team by asking questions to learn more about the WEMIX PLAY onboarding process and understand the potential of launching their own blockchain game through the platform.
VAIOT, KuCoin Labs jointly launch crypto-regulation think tank supported by industry experts
VAIOT, the developer of AI-powered digital services for businesses and consumers, launches the Digital Assets Regulation Institute (DARI), fostering forward-thinking regulation informed by the know-how and perspective of companies operating in the crypto space. VAIOT’s $VAI token remains one of the earliest digital assets to be issued within a regulated framework. The company is also among the few to have returned every penny to its investors after it was hacked for $2 million in January.
With the collapse of FTX—the former symbol of legitimacy in digital assets—many blockchain enthusiasts fear investors will step away from the industry. But 58% of institutional crypto investors plan to raise their allocations over the next three years, according to a recent Coinbase report, pointing to a long-term view of the asset class even though prices remain low. There will, however, undoubtedly be a shift toward regulated digital assets with long-term potential. As governments bolster their nascent regulatory infrastructures—ranging from MiCA, the EU’s new crypto-assets regulatory framework, to various U.S. initiatives—it’s crucial they consult with industry practitioners on how to make them effective and ensure the protection of retail investors.
Regulated since September 2020 under strict Maltese legal scrutiny and with oversight exercised by Grant Thornton, a leading accounting and advisory firm, VAIOT positions DARI at the forefront of shaping regulation. The think tank will gather relevant stakeholders, ranging from regulated companies and projects seeking regulation to consulting firms, financial and security auditors, accounting companies, law firms, and VCs, to conduct extensive research and produce reports that will inform government policy across the globe.
VAIOT’s DARI is co-founded by KuCoin Labs, which brings significant experience in research and incubation of Web3 projects based on a strict selection criteria and vetting process. KuCoin Labs is known for gathering both internal and external leading market experts from different project development segments. DARI is also supported by a group of experts, including members of Grant Thornton Malta’s tax, regulatory, and compliance practice.
At DARI, an interdisciplinary body of experts representing the point of view, know-how, and experience of industry participants will create ready-to-implement gold standards and best practices for crypto regulation. Specific working groups will develop reports and conduct focus groups from the perspective of retail investors to ensure policymakers take into account the perspective of every token holder when crafting regulation. DARI will offer up a unified body of knowledge easily accessible and implementable for any company in the industry to utilize. Projects seeking to be regulated will be able to participate in consultation and incubation with DARI’s institutional partners, and the institutional partners will act as consultants for the think tank.
DARI invites companies, experts, and institutions in the crypto industry to join the initiative. Requests and inquiries should be sent to [email protected] .ai.
“No one cares about regulation during a bull run when money is being tossed around and investors are making massive gains,” says Pawel Andruszkiewicz, COO of VAIOT and President of DARI. “It’s when everything crashed and burned a few months ago that people came to understand the value of companies, like VAIOT, that comply with stringent regulations. It’s our goal at DARI to ensure effective regulation is at the forefront of the way we think about this industry going forward.”
“We’ve been hearing about governments working on regulation for digital assets for years now,” says Wayne Pisani, Partner and Head of Tax, Regulatory and Compliance at Grant Thornton. “But part of the problem is it’s being developed behind the scenes. Effective regulation requires bottom-up initiative, where companies and entities working within regulatory frameworks can share their opinions and expertise with regulators in a public manner. That’s what DARI is aiming to bring to the industry.”
“It is particularly crucial to join as strong an industry force as possible to ensure an optimal development condition for future crypto builders and users,” states Lou YU, Head of KuCoin Labs, and vice-president to DARI. “We hope to create regulatory synergies among countries and markets, shouldering the fundamental ideologies of crypto but also making them relevant and tangible to all participants. DARI will put efforts into the submission of an official proposal to the European Commission, and is enthusiastic about engaging in regulatory hearings with the relevant European institutions.”

The alliance between Symplify and nChain is a major milestone for the gaming industry, and it will benefit both players and operators alike. As blockchain technology continues to evolve, we can expect to see even more groundbreaking solutions emerge to enhance the safety and security of online gaming.
