READYgg and Aptos Labs have partnered together to onboard 15 million web2 players into the Web3 ecosystem. This was achieved via READYgg’s robust and talented network, all on Aptos, the blockchain with the fastest time-to-finality necessary for seamless gameplay.
The team revealed that starting November 20, players can be whitelisted for early access to the new releases launching on December 6. READYgg said they have signed over 20 major web2 publishers, representing a library of 2,000 games played by over 200m monthly active users. Four of these web2 publishers will now operate on the Aptos blockchain by the end of 2023, with a minimum of a dozen more to follow in 2024.
The team revealed that the game titles will include Runestone Keeper, a roguelike dungeon crawler game (PC/Android/iOS), Rescue Robots Sniper Survival (Android), a first-person action game, Minijuegos, a hypercasual platform, and ToroFun, a browser-based social gaming portal. All these titles will feature web3 elements, such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), while Minijuegos and ToroFun will also boast an innovative NFT-based loyalty system.
Furthermore, publishers joining the READYgg / Aptos ecosystem are set to have access to potential funding or grants through the READYgg $RDYX token - known as “The Gamer’s Token” - and predictable Aptos usage fees empowering publishers to run web3 components with less exposure to price volatility.
While commenting on this latest development, David S. Bennahum, CEO and co-founder of READYgg, said,
“It is difficult to overstate just how overjoyed we are about this commitment from Aptos Labs. Bridging web2 games to web3 has always been our goal, which is why we’ve built a range of tools traditional publishers can use to seamlessly reach a web3 audience and bring their typical users into the world of on-chain gaming.”
Mo Shaikh, co-founder & CEO of Aptos Labs, added that,
“This partnership with READYgg will accelerate the delivery of studio-quality web3 games, user experiences, and compelling ownable assets.”
READYgg said its tools and ecosystem democratize access to web3 game creation and open a path to true mass adoption and scale into web3. The partnership with Aptos Labs will expand what’s possible in web3 gaming and deliver unparalleled UX on par or better than anything worth playing on web2.
