Dubai, UAE, 1st March 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, HeliconNFT, the DeFi, NFT and blockchain gaming ecosystem, signs a mutual partnership deal with Infinite8, a game developer who recently secured $1.2 million in funding. Infinite8 announcement joins the list of HeliconNFT’s new game partners, including Bad Fox Studios, a game studio based in England, who will also be joining the ecosystem beta launch in Q3 2022.
Infinite8’s focus is on play-to-earn blockchain games – the perfect partner for HeliconNFT, who categorise themselves as the Netflix and Amazon of blockchain gaming, where you’ll find a whole library of blockchain games in conjunction with an NFT marketplace, allowing users to buy, sell and trade in-game assets for these games. According to NFT Go the total market cap of NFTs jumped in early 2021 from around the $55 million mark to a current market cap of around $16 billion, with over 22 million NFTs in the metaverse. A study by blockchain specialist Chainalysis indicated over $40.9 billion was spent on NFTs in 2021 alone, far surpassing previous predictions or trends. To date Chainalysis also record that 80% of the market is held by a smaller demographic of key investors, meaning the space to develop via community platforms and industries such as gaming is huge.
“We are excited to partner with a global next-generation platform like HeliconNFT, which we are confident will become an industry leader due to next level innovation,” says Hamid Fathalian, Founder of infinite8. “Because HeliconNFT’s technology allows the use of a wide and ever-expanding range of utility services for the gaming sector we feel it not only fully corresponds to the time, but significantly expands the already fascinating possibilities of the NFT gaming world,” finishes Hamid.
The Infinite8 team describe LandRocker as a play-to-earn, online multiplayer game where players can battle and race against each other in upgradeable vehicles, and also explore and mine planets for resources (NFTs & crypto tokens). NFTs are available in two variants: as cosmetic upgrades for combat vehicles, preventing players from buying NFTs that give them a distinct advantage over others, and NFTs that boost a player’s mining vehicle’s performance. LandRocker is set to have its initial sale through Binance Smart Chain, and is set for beta release in Q3 2022 on the HeliconNFT ecosystem.
Infinite8 will be looking to use HeliconNFT as its secondary NFT marketplace, but plans to utilise the full gambit of HeliconNFT’s features for several other upcoming titles beyond LandRocker – including an expansive, open metaverse.
