[PRESS RELEASE – San Francisco, United States, 31st May 2022]
MetaApp – a free-to-play, play-to-earn MMO strategy game designed for a mobile-first experience – is pleased to announce that it will be going live on the BNB Application Sidechain (BAS). The first game is done. The Meta app is now available on Google Play for Android devices, with an iOS app coming in the near future.
The game is set in a post-apocalyptic world where humanity has disappeared and a new era ruled by apes has begun. Next on the agenda is space domination. Each player must work together with his gang to become the strongest clan and win the ultimate race to space.
“Meta APUS was born out of this idea of creating a community-oriented game that both provides an audience with something valuable – 1) an opportunity for traditional gamers to accrue and truly own their in-game assets and 2) A much more interactive and enjoyable blockchain experience for gamers who primarily want to monetize,” said Taylor Shim, Business Lead at MetaApps.
She adds, “Building on an application-focused sidechain helps us avoid many of the common issues seen in blockchain gaming such as network congestion and gives us a lot of flexibility in terms of game design and tokenomics.”
Using Anker’s Gaming Software Development Kit (SDK), MetaApps combines the fun gameplay that users love in Web 2 with the incentive and monetization mechanisms that are integral to Web 3. With full Web3 capabilities, increased scalability and intuitive game mechanics, MetaApps has pioneered blockchain gaming.
Blockchain integration means it will include in-game cryptocurrencies, NFT characters, and true digital ownership. Game-related data resides on the blockchain rather than on centralized servers controlled by gaming studios. With true ownership, players are able to freely trade or sell their in-game assets and earn while playing.
Anker also helped build the BNB Application Sidechain (BAS), which enables developers to build and operate their own blockchains running parallel to the BNB Chain mainnet. With dedicated sidechains, apps and games like MetaApp will have very high throughput and extremely low transaction fees. Developers can build dedicated blockchains that suit the needs of their unique applications without needing to compete with traffic coming from all other apps running on the BNB chain.
Anker’s new Web3 Gaming SDK gives game studios and developers everything they need to build amazing Web3 games like MetaApp, from best-in-class Web3 infrastructure to NFTs, marketplaces, and multi-chain wallet integrations. Its SDKs help game studios convert their Web 2 games to Web 3 quickly and seamlessly by adding NFTs, crypto payment gateways, and other mechanisms. It only took Meta Apes a month to convert from Web2 to Web3 using Ankr’s Gaming SDK.
Anker Blockchain helps companies and developers who build on them by providing the best infrastructure and multi-chain solutions in the industry to access blockchain data rapidly and reliably. Ankr launched the Ankr protocol in 2021, serving over 200B requests a month across 50+ blockchains, and is well on its way to becoming the dominant leader in RPC services.
