Platinum Egg integrating Web 3.0 game CrossLink with Concordium

CrossLink is a game that connects the real world and the virtual

Platinum Egg is integrating its Web 3.0 game, CrossLink, with the Concordium Blockchain, making it easier for people with low cryptocurrency literacy to feel safe when joining the crypto space. 

Crosslink, which already has over 250K users, aims to serve as a vehicle to introduce newcomers to the crypto space. Unlike other blockchain-based games, Crosslink does not have an initial spend to play and earn rewards.

CrossLink is a game that connects the real world and the virtual – a completely new gaming experience combining GPS and games. Players can dispatch heroes anywhere on earth and challenge extra-terrestrial life, win battles with raid bosses, and earn rewards!

“Another aspect of cryptocurrencies that has been preventing its widespread integration in Japan has been the perception of lack of security. A history of strict banking laws and regulations has created a culture of doubt towards new financial instruments, causing more hesitation for less crypto literate people to jump into the space.

We believe that the emphasis on identity security built into Concordium, combined with the soft entry provided by Crosslink, will prove to be an effective catalyst in encouraging new non-crypto literate users to join the space.”  says Nariya Takemura, President of Platinum Egg.

Platinum Egg is a game development company now in its 20th year, based in Tokyo, Japan. Over the 20 years, Platinum Egg have provided A to Z services across every aspect of game development for games on all platforms – from consumer to browser, feature phone to smart phones – and have a proven track record as one of the highest quality development studios in Tokyo.

In around 2017, Platinum Egg shifted its focus to the next evolution of games – blockchain games – and became one of the earliest adopters of the technology in the gaming space, for a relatively young Japanese blockchain/NFT market.

As well as launching the first-of-its-kind GPS-based crypto-rewarding idle battle blockchain game ‘Crosslink’, Platinum Egg created the NFT marketplace to accompany Crosslink, Tokenlink and developed a stable coin exchange system ‘Coinlink’

“At Concordium, we are very excited to partner with Platinum Egg. An already well established and successful game, Crosslink will benefit from Concordium’s ID layer and security and allow new users access to blockchain based solutions. Concordium already has a growing following in Japan, but it is a market where we very much appreciate having strong and established partners with deep understanding of Japan and the ecosystem there.

The collaboration with Platinum Egg also underlines our increasing presence in and strong support of blockchain-based gaming” says Lars Seier Christensen, Chairman of Concordium Foundation
