Neowiz and Polygon launch Web3 game platform Intella X
We’re delighted to reveal that Polygon is teaming up with the massively popular Neowiz Corporation, a multi-platform video game development and online publishing giant based in South Korea. Together, we will launch a brand new Web3 gaming platform, dubbed Intella X, which will bring some of Neowiz’s popular gaming IPs, including “Cats & Soup” and “Brave Nine,” to Web3 for the first time.
For game developers, contribution to the ecosystem is known as “Develop and Earn”. By developing and deploying games/content to the ecosystem, the platform calculates certain on-chain and off-chain data to determine the contribution rate for each developer’s game.
Launching alongside the platform is Intella X’s proprietary wallet, “IX Wallet.” Optimized for game services, the Web3-based wallet is to offer major platform services such as DEX, Bridge, NFT Launchpads, NFT Marketplace, and more.
