Collaboration to Forge DEA’s Ecosystem Accessibility From Astar Network
SINGAPORE, April 13, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Today, Singapore-based GameFi platform provider Digital Entertainment Asset Pte. Ltd. (DEA) has inked a strategic partnership with Japan-based Astar Network to make its PlayMining ecosystem and associated products available on Astar’s Polkadot parachain. The new collaboration is designed to help expand Astar Network’s GameFi reach with the bevy of content and services already supported by DEA.
The PlayMining economic zone is purposefully designed and built for multi-chain distribution, helping the GameFi platform broaden its potential audience of users. DEA already features an audience of more than 2.3 million users spread across 100 countries, and forging relationships with blockchain networks will play a significant component in its future expansionary plans.
With the Astar tie-up, DEA will effectively be able to bridge its PlayMining economic zone, including play-to-earn (P2E) games, its DEAPcoin (DEP) native token, and even the NFT marketplace, while also attracting more users to Astar’s public blockchain. This will allow users to access GameFi directly from Astar Network and heighten the circulation of DEP, by extension
Astar Network, which features lower gas fees has worked hard to attract DeFi protocols. Already, the parachain has attracted more than $1 billion in total value locked (TVL), helping it compete with other major DeFi hubs. With the expansion into GameFi, the smart contract protocol will work to integrate DEA’s play-to-earn gaming content, which currently features four titles and another set for launch in the coming months.
