DMarket, the world’s first blockchain-based cross-game marketplace to turn virtual items into real assets, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Playkey ICO, the first decentralized сloud P2P and blockchain gaming platform with an ecosystem that enables gamers to launch and play AAA video games on low-end PCs and MacOS devices.
According to the partnership agreement, DMarket and Playkey will cooperate on big data analysis and depersonalized stats sharing. This will allow DMarket to gain more insights into gamer performance and behavior while trading/exchanging in-game items. Playkey will get a better understanding of what devices and platforms users prefer to use for gaming, how much time they spend on them and more. The parties also agreed on cross-promotion of both projects to increase brands’ awareness among game publishers and developers.
As per Playkey stats, 80% of its users play MMO games and this entire audience could start using DMarket for convenient, one-click in-game items trading. In turn, DMarket users will be introduced to Playkey as a new great way to play hardcore video games on low-end PCs, which is an obvious win-win.
“The partnership will increase the audience for both services. We see it as a truly unique case in the gaming industry when two blockchain platforms join forces and consolidate efforts to create added value for all gamers,” said Volodymyr Panchenko, CEO and Founder of DMarket.
“Playkey enables more gamers to have access to their favorite top-notch titles with the help of cloud gaming that makes users` hardware and system configuration completely irrelevant. DMarket creates one more attractive feature for true gamers and offers another opportunity to enjoy the game. It’s great to move in the same direction, creating a better digital world for video gamers all over the world,” Egor Gurjev, CEO and co-founder of Playkey commented.
Speaking about the future prospects of partnership, Panchenko and Gurjev said they are planning to integrate DMarket’s in-game items trading with Playkey platform. On the other side, DMarket plans to add a “content lab” for every trader where users will be able to choose and play an online game while creating content for future exchange. This will be enabled right on the DMarket platform thanks to decentralized cloud gaming technology provided by Playkey.
Currently, both DMarket and Playkey are holding final token crowdsales that will run through the end of November.
To date, DMarket has raised over $17 million. Playkey has already attracted over $6 million.
Playkey is a cloud gaming platform featuring technology that enables gamers to launch and play AAA games on low-end PCs and MacOS devices. Playkey.net’s current product is based on its powerful GPU servers located in Amsterdam, London, Frankfurt, and Moscow.
DMarket is the world’s first cross-game platform based on blockchain and smart contracts that enable one-click sale, exchange, or evaluation of any virtual item from any game on any platform. DMarket Token will be the only virtual currency used within the platform, providing different options for trading items, exchanges, and smart contracts.
