The leading Layer 1 public blockchain, aelf, is organising the Blockchain Gaming Grand Prix in collaboration with Chainstack, DWF Labs, GaFin, Asia Blockchain Game Alliance, and other leading Web3 players. The friendly go-kart competition is being hosted in conjunction with aelf’s new gaming vertical, aelevate, and is set to take place on 14 September 2023 during TOKEN2049 Singapore.
Conceived as a pioneering initiative by aelf, aelevate is tailored to guide gaming studios’ transition into the Web3 arena, with grants extending up to US$150,000 per gaming studio. The program pairs financial backing with technological and go-to-market support, propelling Web2 gaming studios into the Web3 landscape.
aelevate’s comprehensive support for games to be blockchain-enabled includes asset integration, tokenisation, smart contracts and side-chain development. Games can leverage aelf’s unique mainchain and sidechain architecture to implement smart contracts that govern game mechanics. They can achieve interoperability across different chains through aelf’s cross-chain bridges and utilise dApps within aelf’s ecosystem to manage cross-chain non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and fungible tokens (FTs). Participating studios will also benefit from business mentorship in go-to-market strategies, user acquisition advisory, and access to aelf’s venture capitalists and investor relations.
Steven, Founder and Chief Growth Officer of GaFin, shares, “At Gafin, we’re truly excited about the aelevate gaming grant program and the dynamic Grand Prix event. This partnership signifies a significant step towards advancing the intersection of Web3 technology and gaming. The aelevate grant’s commitment to nurturing gaming studios aligns seamlessly with our mission to push the boundaries of eSports through innovative technology, while the Grand Prix event adds an element of thrill, mirroring the dynamism we seek to bring to the world of eSports. Together, we’re driving a new era of gaming possibilities and empowering creative minds to thrive.”
Asia Blockchain Gaming Alliance shared in a statement, “As proud partners of the aelevate gaming grant program and the exhilarating Grand Prix event, we at ABGA are thrilled to be part of this groundbreaking initiative. The fusion of aelevate’s visionary support for gaming studios with the excitement of the Grand Prix underscores the limitless potential of blockchain in gaming. This collaboration not only fosters innovation but also empowers creators to redefine the gaming landscape. We look forward to witnessing the remarkable transformations arising from this dynamic partnership.”
The Blockchain Gaming Grand Prix also invites developers and teams to engage with event partners, fellow gamers, gaming studios, and those intrigued by blockchain’s potential. Offering a blend of festivities and networking opportunities, Blockchain Gaming Grand Prix will be the ideal platform for both blockchain-curious and enthusiasts to connect, discuss, and share ideas, elevating their blockchain experience as they immerse themselves in the thrill of go-karting.
