World-leading 3D content creator Unity has included 13 top Web3 crypto gaming companies in its Verified Solutions Program (VSP).
There are those who still talk of the crypto industry going to zero. But with the talent, entrepreneurialism, and resources behind this sector, and niches such as gaming, DeFi, and metaverse, it is far more likely to bolster its position as the newest and fastest-growing of the world’s asset classes.
Unity well positioned for huge growth in gaming
Unity is a behemoth of a company positioned at the top of the gaming industry. It has 3.9 billion monthly active users and reached 5 billion game downloads in 2021.
The number of Unity creators increased 31% last year and 18 months after the peak of the pandemic, the amount of people playing games is still up by more than 50%.
Crypto gaming is the new frontier, and it wasn’t going to be long before the likes of Unity dipped their toe in this thriving pool of innovative activity.
The Unity Verified Solutions Program
The 13 Web3 gaming companies that Unity has chosen to enter its VSP Program are: Aikon ORE ID, Algorand, Altura, Aptos Labs, Dapper Labs, Immutable X, Infura, Metamask, Nefta, Quarters, Solana, Tezos and Truffle.
Unity’s Verified Solutions Program comprises an ecosystem of trusted third-party SDKs, plug-ins, and editor applications. All members of the ecosystem are closely aligned with Unity to ensure that its latest releases are verified for productivity, performance, and usability.
Altura provides infrastructure for Web3
Altura is one of the crypto projects chosen by Unity, given that its platform provides everything needed to build, scale and monetise Web3 gaming. Game developers can use the powerful Altura API and SDKs to build on any blockchain.
Majd Hailat, the founder of Altura, said of his company’s integration into the Unity VSP Program:
We are thrilled to team up with Unity and join their Verified Solutions program. This is an incredible opportunity for Altura to showcase our technology and bring the benefits of decentralized gaming to Unity’s massive user base.
We believe that decentralization will revolutionize the gaming industry, and we are excited to lead this movement. Our aim is to make this technology more accessible to both players and developers, and our collaboration with Unity represents a major stride towards that goal.
