• Polygon based Arc8 launches e-sports NFT game to 1.3 million players

  • Polygon-based decentralized app (dapp) Arc8 has launched a series of ready-to-play NFT-based esports games to 1.3 million pre-registered players, in which players can compete and earn rewards.

    Developed by Gamee, a mobile game developer and subsidiary of crypto unicorn Animoca Brands, Arc8 is a playable and earnable mobile e-sports NFT platform that has received positive reviews during its beta phase. Players use GMEE tokens to participate in Arc8’s 1V1 matches and tournaments and to purchase Arc8 non-convertible tokens that can be used in-game. According to Dappradar, the limited beta attracted 1.3 million users in three weeks and briefly became the third-ranked gaming app on all chains and the No. 1 app on Polygon’s chain.

    The launch of Arc8 will immediately follow the launch of the platform’s first NFT series, G-bots – a limited selection of 1,000 game characters available for exclusive 1V1 matches and tournaments within the Arc8 app. Unlike many NFT-based games that are primarily in concept or development stages, G-bots on the Arc8 platform will be ready for players at launch.

    “When our team set out to design the new NFT game, we prioritized the ability to ‘play to earn,’ cost effectiveness and ease of use, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the positive response,” said Bozena Rezab, CEO of GAMEE.” Today, many gamers are getting their first taste of the decentralized community on Arc8, and many have never used a blockchain wallet before. This is a clear indication that Arc8 is playing an important role in growing the blockchain gaming market.”

    Earlier this month, Gamee chose to migrate Arc8 to Polygon – a leading ethereum extension protocol – after ethereum transaction fees became untenable. Since the migration, Arc8 has been the main driver of the Polygon chain, contributing to a proliferation of wallets on the chain, with more active wallets per day than on the main Ether chain.
