Non-Fungible Token (NFT) gaming is getting a makeover. A new collaboration between Laguna Games, a Web3 R&D entertainment developer, and Lens Protocol enables gamers to connect across multiple gaming experiences.
These new decentralized gaming IDs will allow players to connect their profiles across Crypto Unicorn NFT gaming platforms on web and mobile.
The Lens integration is a binder that takes the profiles on your network and connects them to the avatar system behind Crypto Unicorns.. This opens up new avenues for logging into games and accessing leaderboards, along with benefits and rewards in the ecosystem.
Aron Beierschmitt, CEO and co-founder of Laguna Games, said this is a form of unsiloing identity systems within game franchise ecosystems, adding:
“We are going to branch out an existing ecosystem to maximize the benefits for our community of players.”
Lens Protocol founder Stani Kulechov states that this integration will benefit users of both platforms, as it allows gamers to “seamlessly and securely move between platforms using a single identity.”
In the world of Web3, interoperability is a key component of ever-expanding blockchain ecosystems, especially as they fill with more utilities and applications.
The term interoperability is often heard in the context of maneuvering between blockchain networks. However, as Web3 applications multiply, there is a greater need for interoperability in other areas of the space, including gaming.
Gaming in the Web3 space has been heralded as an important entry point for mass adoption and as an example of utility for ownership through NFTs.
It is also one of the areas of the space that is receiving attention from investors. According to a Q3 report from DappRadar, blockchain metaverse and gaming projects raised $1.3 billion from July to September this year.
Recently, Web3 infrastructure company ChainSafe raised $18.75 million as the company focuses on GameFi development.
