Meta Apes goes live on the BNB Chain’s application sidechain

Meta Apes has become the first free-to-play and play-to-earn MMO strategy game to launch on BNB Chain’s scaling solution BAS (BNB Application Sidechain).

The Web3 game, designed for a mobile-first experience, is live for Android devices and will soon be available for iOS, the team behind the game said in a press release shared with Vantagepoint on Tuesday.

Meta Apes uses the gaming software development kit (SDK) of Ankr to provide gameplay that combines Web2 experience with Web3’s monetization and incentives to benefit users.

The game offers full Web3 capabilities, including the enhanced scalability of blockchain gaming. It also integrates in-game cryptocurrencies, NFTs and allows users access to true digital ownership.

Meta Apes was born out of this idea of creating a community-oriented game that offers both audiences something valuable – 1) an opportunity for the traditional gamers to earn & truly own their in-game assets and 2) a much more interactive and enjoyable experience to the blockchain gamers who are primarily looking to earn,” Taylor Shim, Business Lead at Meta Apes said in a statement.

The benefit of “building on an application-focused sidechain” she added, is that developers have the room to avoid common issues such as network congestion.They can also get the flexibility they need to work on game design and tokenomics.

With Ankr’s Web3 Gaming SDK, developers can not only include NFTs, but also add marketplaces and enable multi-chain wallet integrations, a huge boost to the quest to deliver a gaming experience that brings Web2 to Web3.
