One of the pillars of Harmony’s use-case in in gaming. Through its sharded and scalable network, it can support 1000 transactions-per-second on each shard. This makes it well-positioned for this fast-moving industry.
In September 2018, Harmony partnered with gaming industry leader Animoca. The company has a close relationship with Axiom Zen and Dapper Labs, the company behind CryptoKitties.
Harmony and Animoca have a close working relationship. Together, they plan to leverage Harmony’s blockchain for mass-adoption of blockchain-based gaming. Harmony will provide for the easy transferability of in-game items and currencies.
Animoca is behind The Sandbox, one of the most-anticipated blockchain games of 2020. So far, Sandbox has been downloaded over 40 million times and boasts some 1 million active monthly users. In 2018, it was acquired by Animoca and will be transformed into a blockchain-based virtual world.
Animoca has a relationship with HTCm Atari, and others while owning the licenses to a wide variety of games including Ben 10, MLB, NBA, Formula One, Garfield, and more.
Together with Harmony, Animoca will power its blockchain games—and we can expect other gaming companies to come on board as the network matures!
