Double jump.tokyo, a specialized development company for blockchain games will be using a scaling solution for operating the energy-intensive NFTs. It will use the Immutable X platform for minting and trading NFTs. A layer-two solution for the Ethereum blockchain created by Immutable. The same team behind the Gods Unchained trading card game. The main motive behind using a scaling solution is to promote NFT adoption by reducing gas fees, allowing for more dynamic game mechanics.
The alpha release of the Immutable X platform will launch this month for Gods Unchained, double jump.tokyo including SuperfarmDAO, Illuvium, and Mintable.
Today we’re announcing that Immutable X, our ZK rollup engine for minting and exchanging NFTs on Ethereum, will be available to all developers worldwide. This is the most significant announcement in our company’s history, as we run with this industry into a new era. (tweet 1/6) — Immutable (@Immutable) October 21, 2020
The platform comes up with many benefits designed mainly for the NFT market, including instant trading confirmations, having the capacity for over covering 9,000 transactions per second with zero gas fees. The system uses batched zero-knowledge proofs from Starkware, indicating on the platform remaining fully decentralized and secured by the Ethereum network, which also means that NFTs can be traded via an Ethereum-based marketplace. The exploding growth and popularity of DeFi and NFTs over the past year have led to increasing demand for layer-two solutions to solve the congestion issue and high fees on the Ethereum network.
Motivating the users in trusting the Ethereum database, Immutable co-founder Robbie Ferguson said:
At the end of the day, this security is the whole point. Otherwise, you might as well just make a new centralized database. What our company has become focused on is to scale these games and these applications in a way that is best for users, and ultimately, still decentralized, while still being super easy for mainstream applications to use. That’s why we decided to build Immutable X. We spent a very long time searching for a scaling solution. We’ve got to make the proposition of NFT ownership available to everyone.
