Polygon and Blockchain Games
On a fundamental angle, Polygon is proving a choice network for deploying projects while also tapping on Ethereum’s advantages.
Polygon is EVM compatible, highly scalable, and has relatively lower trading fees, presenting an edge over competing networks. These attractive attributes distinguish Polygon, allowing blockchain game developers to launch on its rails.
Minecraft, a project launched independent of Microsoft, is launching from Polygon. The game has a broad user base of over 141 million monthly active users, up from around 120 million in 2020.
The NFT World’s blockchain layer on Minecraft allows players to access blockchain features, evening purchasing in-game assets using WRLD. This improvement is possible because part of Minecraft’s game is open source, and developers can make enhancements. NFT World is taking advantage of this allowance to give gamers a metaverse experience from existing games.
