SEOUL, South Korea, March 20, 2019 — Blockmason, a leading developer of foundational, base-layer blockchain technologies, the Korea Mobile Game Association (“KMGA”) and the Korea Blockchain Content Association (“KBCCA”), today announced the signing of a three-party Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) and collaboration to advance the blockchain-based game development industry in Korea. Per the terms of the MOU, the companies are aiming to reduce the barriers faced by small and mid-size game developers when building games based on blockchain technologies.
“We are excited to join forces with two organizations that are working hard to support and grow the nascent blockchain game and software development industries,” said Michael Chin, CEO of Blockmason. “The KMGA and KBCCA represent hundreds of startups employing thousands of developers. Together, we can help their member companies build innovative new games and other software products faster while also encouraging user adoption.”
Blockmason’s Link is a new blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service that allows blockchain-based game developers to use programmatic blockchains in their applications without requiring any blockchain experience. With Link, developers can create games that interact with smart contracts and blockchains like any other web or mobile API. There are no cryptocurrencies to acquire, browser plugins to install or servers to maintain or monitor. A developer simply adds their smart contracts to Link and uses the resulting APIs in their game or app. At the heart of Link is BLINK, the utility token which provides Link users with API transaction capacity.
