Netmarble to Release Games on Blockchain Technology
Netmarble, a leading South Korean game developer, has announced its plans to release twenty games that will use blockchain and metaverse technologies.
According to the billionaire founder and chairman of Netmarble, Bang Jun-Hyuk, the company plans to launch a couple of dozen new games, most of which will utilize blockchain technology.
One of the new titles to be launched include A3:Still Alive, a play-to-earth game that gives users the chance to make money through in-game assets like weapons with cryptocurrency. This would be the first play-to-earn cryptocurrency game that Netmarble will launch in March.
Another game in the yet-to-be-released portfolio includes Everybody's Marble: Metaworld. This game will likewise be built using metaverse and NFT technologies. Players would be able to purchase land in a virtual world using NFTs. They can also build and trade "NFTized" real estate.
The blockchain-based games made by Netmarble will integrate the enjoyment of games, along with intangible assets through NFT, and I believe that the gaming industry will grow even bigger than it is now.
NFTs, also known as non-fungible tokens, are crypto-assets that allow people to bring objects like music, artwork, and in-game items onto a blockchain.
