Stardust, a seamless solution for game developers integrating NFTs into their immersive games, has added Polygon, an Ethereum scaling platform onboarding millions to web3, as the newest blockchain option for game publishers.
By integrating with Polygon, Stardust continues to build on its blockchain-agnostic roadmap and eliminates the cost, technical, and environmental barriers that have slowed blockchain adoption among game developers.
“Until now, both independent and established game developers have struggled to build on blockchain due to inherent complexities,” said Stardust Founder and CEO, Canaan Linder. “Polygon has one of the most vibrant and dynamic DApp ecosystems with 7,000+ decentralized applications deployed on its main network. By adding Polygon to our list of chains, Stardust continues to remove the barriers to building on blockchain by providing vetted blockchain options to build immersive game experiences on.”
Polygon is fast becoming the de-facto platform for web3. It is the fastest-growing blockchain with high speed and low gas infrastructure. Polygon works in parallel with the Ethereum network to improve functionality and promote infrastructure development. Polygon achieves this via its array of scaling solutions, including Polygon PoS, Polygon Edge, Polygon Avail, Polygon Nightfall, and Polygon Zero.
Like Polygon, Stardust strives to offer a wide range of secure, fast, affordable, and energy-efficient solutions. As a blockchain-agnostic, end-to-end NFT ecosystem, Stardust offers game publishers a comprehensive solution that allows them to deliver player-first, immersive experiences, leveraging NFTs to capitalize on financially viable, play-to-earn models.
Stardust will also leverage support from Polygon Studios — the NFT and gaming hub of Polygon designed to facilitate seamless access for web 2 game developers to integrate web3 elements and NFTs into their platforms.
Sandeep Nailwal, Co-Founder of Polygon said, “The crossover between gaming and web3 is gathering momentum and is likely to be the mechanism that brings the decentralized internet to the mass market. Stardust is a key mover in this trend, by making it easier for game developers to integrate NFTs into their creations. Polygon brings the essential sustainability, scalability and blockchain cost-efficiency necessary for Web3 gaming to reach its full potential.”
