Oasys Teams Up with LayerZero Labs to Enhance Interoperability in Blockchain Gaming

Ubisoft’s Champions Tactics™: Grimoria Chronicles Emerges as Initial Integration Showcase

April 10, 2024—Gaming-focused blockchain Oasys has announced a new integration with the omni-chain interoperability protocol LayerZero. This marks a significant step in the former’s 2024 Dragon Update, which aims to enhance interoperability across its gaming ecosystem. The integration of Oasys’ Layer 2 HOME Verse with LayerZero is just the beginning, with plans to expand to the L1 Hub-Layer and other Verses.

Oasys will also collaborate closely with Ubisoft, whose Champions Tactics™: Grimoria Chronicles will be the first game to showcase the integration when it debuts on Oasys. Oasys will leverage LayerZero’s interoperability technology, including securely enhancing the blockchain gaming experience for gamers and NFT holders across chains.

LayerZero is a project synonymous with omni-chain development, offering unified semantics across 60+ blockchains. LayerZero facilitates the transfer of arbitrary data between chains in a permissionless, censorship-resistant, and immutable manner. Its Omnichain Non-Fungible Token (ONFT) standard revolutionizes the minting and transfer of NFTs across all LayerZero-supported blockchains, eliminating the need for traditional methods like wrapping, middle-chaining, and centralized bridges. 

The widespread adoption of the ONFT Standard is significantly impacting the future of gaming in web3 by facilitating smooth NFT transfers between different networks. LayerZero also enables the movement of fungible tokens via the Omnichain Fungible Token (OFT) standard. 

“Our partnership with LayerZero is a game-changer for the blockchain gaming community,” stated Daiki Moriyama, Director of Oasys. “Providing a unique web3 gaming experience is essential to increase the number of players, and improving the interoperability of in-game assets is certainly one of our objectives.”

Bryan Pellegrino, Co-Founder and CEO of LayerZero Labs added, “LayerZero adding an Endpoint to Oasys is a major leap forward regarding the interoperability of in-game assets. LayerZero is focused on connecting communities and empowering players by making the games they love more accessible and enjoyable across different networks.”

The integration of LayerZero’s ONFT technology in Ubisoft’s upcoming game, Champions Tactics: Grimoria Chronicles, marks a significant step towards greater interoperability within the blockchain gaming space,” said Nicolas Pouard, VP Strat Lab. “In alliance with Oasys and LayerZero, we’re moving from splintered chains standards to an omnichain standard, fostering better communication and interaction across chains and assets. This collaboration is a testament to our commitment to advancing blockchain technology and enhancing the gaming experience for our players.”

By enabling users to seamlessly and securely transfer in-game and other assets across networks, and to participate in inter-ecosystem collaboration, Oasys and LayerZero are working to reduce barriers to entry and foster a richer and more inclusive gaming experience for all.
