Metacade Teams Up with Polygon Labs in Major Partnership


Metacade and Polygon Labs Partnership for User Acquisition and Test Adoption

London, United Kingdom, October 3rd, 2023, Chainwire

Metacade, the world’s first community-led gaming platform, has announced a collaboration with Polygon Labs, with the aim of driving user acquisition, testing, and adoption of hundreds of new games and customers on the Polygon protocols. This move will open up the brand to a large global audience of gamers on the biggest gaming blockchain, expanding the already vibrant Metacade gaming community.

Metacade’s CEO, Russell Bennett, said “This collaboration has always been a part of our goals, driven by our profound respect for Polygon Labs’ remarkable work and our shared passion for blockchain gaming. As it is evident that the Polygon protocols will play a pivotal role in the future of the industry, we are working hard to deliver a modern UI that can scale for both off-chain and on-chain usage within our game suite. We are also dedicated to supporting hundreds of new games across all formats. Developing on Polygon will help us deliver a bigger and better Metacade primed for the growing global GameFi market.”

Polygon and the Path to Mass Adoption

The Polygon protocols, a leading set of Ethereum-scaling blockchain architecture, have become the cornerstone of gaming, bridging the gap between gaming and decentralized finance. This blockchain network has revolutionized the GameFi industry by tackling the scalability and cost issues that once impeded the growth of blockchain gaming. The Polygon protocols’ efficient scaling solutions and low transaction fees have improved the gaming experience and opened up new doors for developers to create immersive, blockchain-powered games that offer true ownership of in-game assets and the potential for financial rewards.

This commitment to enhancing gaming experiences is in line with Metacade’s vision of delivering the latest in premium gaming to its customers; especially due to the efficiency with which P2E can be delivered. Low gas fee transactions mean a more immersive and smoother gaming experience that isn’t slowed down by high cost and slow transactions.

The Polygon protocols have seen great success with hundreds of games launched, including popular projects such as Gelato (GEL). This is especially significant for Metacade, which initially focused on Arcade games but has recently repositioned to support a much larger range of game types.

Dennis Lavelle, Head of Partnerships at Metacade said “the amount of conversations we’ve had with gaming studios and blockchains this Q3 about where the industry is moving led us to the decision to broaden our product offering. It’s the natural evolution of Metacade, rather than a tangent. We’ll always stay true to our roots in arcade gaming but embracing modern mobile gaming puts us in a significantly stronger position to capture a bigger share of the gaming market, and also attract more investment in the MCADE token and consequently reward the loyalty of our investor community”.
