Millions of players will enter web3 gaming thanks to a new partnership between READYgg and Aptos Labs realized through READYgg’s robust and talented network, all on Aptos, the blockchain with the fastest time-to-finality necessary for seamless gameplay.
As a result of the new partnership, up to 15 million web2 gamers will migrate to web3 and Aptos. Starting November 20, players can be whitelisted for early access to the new releases launching on December 6.
READYgg has already signed over 20 major web2 publishers, representing a library of 2,000 games played by over 200m monthly active users. Four of these web2 publishers will now operate on the Aptos blockchain by the end of 2023, with a minimum of a dozen more to follow next year.
Titles will include Runestone Keeper, a roguelike dungeon crawler game (PC/Android/iOS), Rescue Robots Sniper Survival (Android), a first-person action game, Minijuegos, a hypercasual platform, and ToroFun, a browser-based social gaming portal. All these titles will feature web3 elements, such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), while Minijuegos and ToroFun will also boast an innovative NFT-based loyalty system.
In addition to benefiting from a performant blockchain with speed and asset portability built-in, publishers joining the READYgg / Aptos ecosystem will enjoy potential funding or grants through the READYgg $RDYX token – known as “The Gamer’s Token” – and predictable Aptos usage fees empowering publishers to run web3 components with less exposure to price volatility.
“It is difficult to overstate just how overjoyed we are about this commitment from Aptos Labs,” said David S. Bennahum, CEO & Co-Founder of READYgg. “Bridging web2 games to web3 has always been our goal, which is why we’ve built a range of tools traditional publishers can use to seamlessly reach a web3 audience and bring their typical users into the world of on-chain gaming.”
“Aptos Lab’s expertise will ensure that millions of web2 gamers can get to grips with web3 very quickly, without having to contend with any kind of imposing learning curve.” said Christina Macedo, COO & Co-Founder of READYgg. “They can just have fun, and that’s all that matters”
“This partnership with READYgg will accelerate the delivery of studio-quality web3 games, user experiences, and compelling ownable assets,” said Mo Shaikh, co-founder & CEO of Aptos Labs.
From the start, READYgg’s vision has been to enable billions of people—developers, players and content creators, in particular in emerging markets—to have the opportunity to access and appreciate web3 easily through games and game economies. READYgg’s tools and ecosystem democratize access to web3 game creation and opens a path to true mass adoption and scale into web3. The partnership with Aptos Labs will expand what’s possible in web3 gaming and deliver unparalleled UX on par or better than anything worth playing on web2.
