Introducing Iskra at Korea Blockchain Week
Iskra, a game publishing platform, made a captivating debut at Korea Blockchain Week, sharing their vision for the future of game publishing in the Web3 era. Ben Colayco, Iskra’s Global Managing Director, expressed excitement about leveraging available technology to establish an ecosystem that benefits players, game developers, and the platform itself. Iskra aims to enable stakeholders, especially players, to share in the overall value generated by the game experience. This includes digital asset ownership, fandom development, and community participation.
A New Paradigm: Game Publishing for Web3
Iskra plans to distribute up to 100% of platform fees among all stakeholders based on their level of involvement. Iskra’s Community Ranking System measures various factors, such as running an Iskra network node (Pioneer NFT), staking Iskra’s native token (ISK), and utilizing platform services. By incorporating players as stakeholders from the beginning, Iskra aims to create a dynamic where players are no longer the sole revenue source. Instead, they actively contribute to and benefit from the overall value created by the game experience. This alignment fosters a virtuous cycle where an engaged user base attracts high-quality content, which, in turn, further grows the engaged user base, benefiting all involved.
Collaborating for Success
To execute their game partnership strategy, Iskra focuses on studios with game development expertise and specific potential for Web3 integration. Recently, Iskra announced its partnership with HDLABS, a blockchain game studio known for their Move to Earn (M2E) title, “Stepwatch.” HDLABS is actively transitioning around 30 titles from Web2 to Web3. Together, HDLABS and Iskra will launch a turn-based RPG called “Three Kingdoms Multiverse” in Q4 of 2022. This new partnership brings the Iskra game lineup to four confirmed titles, including Grampus’ popular restaurant simulation game “Cooking Adventure,” Rich Alien’s 3-match puzzle game “Cascade Kings,” and Iskra’s own in-house collectible RPG “Klaymon.” Stay tuned for more game and partner announcements from Iskra by the end of 2022.
According to Mr. Seok-ju LEE, CEO of HDLABS, the collaboration between HDLABS’ game expertise, Iskra’s blockchain knowledge, and their engaged community will pave the way for enjoyable and sustainable game experiences in Web3.
Mr. Ji-in KIM, CEO of GRAMPUS, also shares Iskra’s philosophy of “Play AND Earn,” emphasizing the importance of genuine enjoyment and sustainability.
