Blockchain company Zilliqa is announcing the launch of its Web3-based console. With first-party games from Zilliqa, a Web3 wallet and mining utilities, the dashboard is designed for people interested in cryptocurrencies. The overall goal of the device is to allow players to play games while mining Zil tokens.
Zilliqa hopes to boost their platform rollout with the inclusion of a Web3 wallet and game center. Game Center brings together crypto apps and games in one place. Players can also earn rewards or buy and sell on the market.
“When we announced our first game at Gamescom, we received a huge response from the gaming community and we are happy to say,” said Valentin Cobelea, head of game technology at Zilliqa. that it is only the beginning. “Zilliqa’s hardware console and game center will allow non-crypto natives to earn money while playing exciting games without complicated management of the crypto they earn . We’re launching consoles and game centers early next year with two Zilliqa games, followed by more games from a variety of creators. With the support of Zilliqa’s vast crypto community and easy-to-use infrastructure, we have no doubt that we can become the Steam equivalent for Web3 games.”
In October, the game center started beta early access testing. The consoles will be available for pre-order in Q1 2023.
