Polygon has been one of the fastest-growing Dapp platforms for Ethereum scaling, rapidly becoming the de-facto standard for DeFi, NFTs, and Blockchain Gaming with 500+ Dapps, ~7M daily txns, and 1.8M+ unique wallets.
The rise of gaming on Polygon has been especially noticeable, with more than 100,000 blockchain gamers on Polygon and top Web 3 games, and Aavegotchi is one of them, building high-quality gaming experiences thanks to Polygon’s high speed and fast confirmation times.
This tight-knit and exponentially growing gamer community is what led to the creation of Polygon Studios: a brand new arm at Polygon that is focused on growing the global Blockchain Gaming and NFT Industry, and bridging the gap between Web 2 and Web 3 gaming.
Introducing Polygon August Adrenaline: an initiative to highlight and get to know the Gaming & NFT projects on Polygon a little better!
The next project in this series is Realm Art!
Please tell us more about your project and your team.
Realm is a metaverse built out of lots of little micro verses that are connected together via portals. You can just explore the realms and discover rare NFTs and upgrade your character as you go. You can create your own realm to look and do what you want. E.g. an art gallery realm that may be in outer space where you hang your NFT art and sculptures. In essence, Realm is a collection of virtual spaces where you can exhibit NFTs, sculptures, music and connect with friends and throw events. The team consists of excellent individuals with a range of experience. Joban came from Cambridge University and has worked in tech startups the whole way through. Milan, our CTO, writes every computer language and is a grade 8 musician. We have people like Saiful who worked on the movie Avatar and at Riot games. We use augmented reality a lot and Radu was one of the first engineers at Blippar, a world-leading AR company. Everyone who works on Realm is really great at their job, collectively we have about 125 years of experience in tech.
