Netmarble is currently one of the biggest gaming companies in the market. They earned over two billion dollars in 2021, thanks to their mobile games like “Ni no Kuni,” and “Seven Knights 2.” Now, the company is entering the blockchain gaming market with its own ecosystem and cryptocurrency.
The MBX (MARBLEX) platform will serve as the home for Netmarble’s new P2E games. Based on the Klatyn mainnet-based blockchain, MBX will use a new MBX-based cryptocurrency. Netmarble hopes that the ecosystem not only encourages organic engagement from players but also rewards them for their participation.
The MBX currency and MBX Wallet will be available for the first time in March when it is applied to “A3: Still Alive” globally with five more P2E games slated to be released in 2022.
Netmarble wants to create new layers of monetization through blockchain and explore the Metaverse and NFTs. Like Ubisoft and Zynga, Netmarble is among the first to create its own blockchain and cryptocurrency.
