Introducing: The Proof of Play Multichain

Today marks the launch of the first blockchain in the Proof of Play Multichain: Apex. Powering our flagship game, Pirate Nation, this achievement signifies the first time a game operates on a dedicated mainnet chain for onchain gaming, heralding a new phase in game development and player experience.

Why the Multichain?

The vision behind the Proof of Play Multichain is clear: to accommodate the growth to millions of players, a single chain won’t work. The solution is a constellation of interconnected chains, each tuned for fully onchain gaming. This network of chains offers seamless composability and lightning-fast block times, ensuring an integrated player experience far beyond the capabilities of traditional blockchain platforms.

A Leap Forward

The Multichain was designed with onchain gaming in mind:

  • Predictable Gas Costs and Immediate Block Times: With block times under 250 milliseconds, Apex offers a smooth, uninterrupted gaming experience.
  • Horizontally Scalable Architecture: Capable of supporting over 100 million players, setting a new standard for blockchain gaming scalability.
  • Cross-Chain Interactions: Seamlessly mirror ETH NFTs and ownership credentials from ETH to the Apex chain, running infrastructure at a fraction of the cost.
  • Proof of Play developed onchain gaming stack: From gasless and signless gameplay to a zero-fee marketplace and an upcoming onchain game engine, we’re removing the barriers to entry for onchain gaming for developers and game designers.

Our Vision

The launch of the Apex chain is the first step towards realizing our long term vision for the Proof of Play ecosystem: to create an infinitely scalable, deeply interconnected universe of games. This move is not only about scaling, but about creating a platform where developers and players can seamlessly develop and experience the benefits of onchain gaming.
