- Meta Apes, A Game Inspired By Age Of Apes, Will Be The First To Use The Binance Application Sidechain, Bnb Chain’s New Scaling Solution.
San Francisco, California, May 4, 2022, ZEXPRWIRE, Meta Apes is the first game to be released using Binance’s innovative Binance Application Sidechain (BAS) architecture, and it is one of the most anticipated Web3 games of 2022. Meta Apes, which is based on the famous Age of Apes mobile game, combines all of the fun gameplay that players like with the Web3 incentives and monetization that crypto consumers have come to expect.
Age of Apes is a mobile MMO strategy game that has received 4.6 stars out of almost 100,000 reviews and over one million installations on the Google Play Store. The idea is to persuade existing fans to convert to the new Meta Apes game, which will retain all of the game’s finest features while running on a much more contemporary platform.
BAS, a sidechain within the Binance Smart Chain (BSC) ecosystem, will be the first to debut Meta Apes. Within the crypto ecosystem, sidechains have piqued people’s curiosity. They’re essentially specialized blockchains for a specific purpose. Developers will have more flexibility and efficiency as a result of this. Meta Apes’ debut is a game-changer in many respects, with severe ramifications for the future of Web3 gaming.
Ankr is launching the first instance of what is known as a BAS through Meta Apes. It means that developers can create blockchains (sidechains) tailored to their specific application’s requirements. It also means they can create a limitless number of test networks that imitate the live chain on which people are currently playing. This results in more precise testing and deployment, as well as increased scalability. Transaction costs will be either non-existent or extremely cheap.
Stanley Wu, Ankr CTO, said, “When we saw what was happening with BSC we got worried. So as one of their main infrastructure partners we stepped in and helped.”
Web3 capabilities will be added to the Meta Apes game as a result of the blockchain integration. In-game coins (such as $SHELL and $BANANA), NFT characters, and actual digital ownership will all be covered. Meta Apes will be the first Web2 game to be converted to Web3 using a software development kit, according to Ankr. Web3 games compensate players for their time and attention, thus this will be the first of many. By including NFTs and crypto payment channels, these SDKs will make it simple to convert any Web2 game.
Ankr CMO Greg Gopman said, “The launch of Meta Apes is significant in many ways. First, it’s set to be a massive blockbuster! Not only for the gameplay but also because it’s the leading instance of a game built on BAS. Second, developers should be really excited about these powerful new capabilities and the ecosystem building around it. We expect to see an explosion of games this year using our SDK to easily convert from Web2 games to Web3. Lastly, sidechains can be applied to many industries aside from gaming and we are at the start of a technological revolution.”
Ankr is a renowned Web3 infrastructure supplier and a key partner for well-known companies such as Polygon, Binance, and Fantom. Much of BNB Chain’s fundamental infrastructure was built out, including the Erigon update, Archive Node upgrade, and new BAS sidechain scaling solution. Ankr also wants to be a pioneer in sidechains, and it has already produced an SDK that allows developers to adapt games created with the Unreal and Unity engines to Web3.
Ankr is releasing a slew of new goods and services. Millions of Web2 developers will be able to quickly transition to Web3 thanks to its freshly released gaming SDK. As the current leader in multichain growth, it also provides an unparalleled package for Web3 developers in terms of node architecture and RPC access. They’re making it simple for developers to construct and scale Web3 applications, even if they’ve only worked with Web2 technology before.
Ankr is building the future of Web3 infrastructure and staking, servicing over 50 Proof-of-Stake chains with an industry-leading global node delivery system and RPC aggregator. Ankr currently serves over 2T transactions a year across Web3 and is the main infrastructure provider for Binance Smart Chain, Fantom, and Polygon as of 2022. It’s also the 3rd largest ETH 2 staker and the creator of Liquid Staking, a growing Ankr product with over 500M in TVL.
