South Korea’s largest mobile game company, Netmarble Corp.., has created its own proprietary blockchain platform called MBX to serve as the basis for its new dapp (decentralized application) video games.
MBX is a blockchain ecosystem based on Klaytn. Klaytn Network is a global public blockchain platform developed by Ground X, the blockchain subsidiary of leading South Korean internet company, Kakao. MBX will use a new cryptocurrency based on MBX.
Netmarble plans to release six blockchain games in 2022, with the first releasing this month.
By applying blockchain technology to games developed or managed by MBX, Netmarble aims to enhance the enjoyment of games by focusing on creating an ecosystem where user participation and reasonable rewards are provided. The official service should open this month.
MBX will be used as the key currency in the MBX ecosystem, and MBX Wallet will be used as the wallet. From the blockchain-based content update in ‘A3: Still Alive (Global)‘ in March, it plans to link various games and technologies in the future, and expand content to NFT and Metaverse.
Before the launch of the MBX service, Netmarble will introduce the official SNS page on March 28, and on March 7, the MBX white paper will be released during the official opening of the website.
Additionally, to commemorate the opening of MBX, from March 8-14, an event will take place where MBX is paid out in an airdrop method to Drops participants in a DeFi Clay Swap.
Meanwhile, Netmarble has established a blockchain-only subsidiary and recruited talent in various areas such as service planning, server development, marketing, and management support.
