Prominent Game Developer Will Expand the Oasys Ecosystem and Contribute to Main Stream Adoption of Blockchain Based Games!
March 25, 2022. Singapore: Oasys is pleased to announce that Wemade,
the leading game developer evolving into a global blockchain platform out of South Korea, has been revealed as the first of over 21 initial validators for the Oasys Gaming Chain ecosystem.
”Blockchain is our main area of focus, and we keep pushing the edge to find advanced solutions nobody came up with before”, stated Wemade. “As a validator we want to further stabilize the “Oasys” chain with the bigger picture in mind to expand and strengthen the ecosystem which might include bridging multiple chains and attract powerful content.”
“We are building the preeminent ecosystem for blockchain-based games to serve the gaming community as we bring the “Oasys” to life,” stated the Oasys Foundation. “Wemade’s successes and expertise with intuitive and user-friendly experiences for gamers will facilitate the smooth onboarding of novice blockchain users. This directly correlates to our mission and focus to bring blockchain gaming into the mainstream and revolutionize the way gamers connect, create and play within the Metaverse.”
The Oasys gaming chain previously announced that Bandai Namco Research, Netmarble, and Com2uS will be participating as Oasys initial gaming chain validators.
Wemade is leading the trend in the metaverse and blockchain fields (NFT, DeFI) with an emphasis on gaming at its core. Its platform, WEMIX, is evolving into a global blockchain platform that can transform games of every genre into blockchain games.
Wemade, founded in February 2000, is a Korean game developer, which developed and published an online game, The Legend of Mir 2. In order to double down on the blockchain business, Wemade established Wemade Tree in 2018, a subsidiary specialized in blockchain technology. Wemade has since then issued WEMIX Token, the key currency of blockchain games, launched the WEMIX Wallet, a mobile app for managing digital assets and NFTs (Non-Fungible Token), and also launched KLEVA, a DeFi protocol that offers a leveraged yield farming service. Recently, Wemade merged with Wemade Tree to continue scaling the blockchain business.
The WEMIX platform introduces P&E (Play-AND-Earn)*, a new paradigm where players enjoying well-made games while also earning resources is the focus. Through WEMIX, we are working towards transforming all games into blockchain games and making the WEMIX Token a key currency in the gaming industry.
Wemade’s mega-hit mobile MMORPG, MIR4, gained global success on the WEMIX platform with over 1.4 million concurrent players. The recognition and success of MIR4 led to a P&E boom, which resulted in the onboarding of other game genres to the WEMX platform such as casual, idle RPGs and many others. Wemade is aiming to onboard at least 100 games on the WEMIX platform by the end of 2022 while also continuing to expand the blockchain business through multi-pronged strategies including game development, IP licensing, and investing in other blockchain companies with great potential.
*’Play-to-Earn’ or ‘P2E’ refers to the concept in which players earn in-game assets that can be transferred to real world currency. Wemade, however, calls this concept ‘Play-AND-Earn’ or ‘P&E’, which means players can earn money while also enjoying the game they’re playing.
