ALAX, a Hong Kong and Geneva based blockchain mobile game distribution platform, fresh from their US$3.8 million fundraise in early May 2018, has announced several partnerships with H5 game vendors in China and Taiwan.
Spurred by demand from China’s mobile gamers, which currently number 582 million individuals, H5 games are steadily gaining popularity domestically and across the region. With the recent LOIs, ALAX is in the perfect position to take advantage of this trend.
A major partnership is Egretia, the blockchain lab of Egret Technology. Beijing-based Egret Technology offers HTML5 mobile solution and services for games and application professionals. It provides various solutions for HTML5 game studios and developers such as game engine Egret Engine, which is used by over 70% of H5 game developers. A total of 200k users developed more than 8,000 H5 games based on their services.
Egretia cooperates with Egret Technology’s overseas partners and develops blockchain-related technologies on their behalf. The first product from Egretia is the eponymous HTML5 blockchain engine and platform, which will allow all HTML5 games powered by Egretia engine and tools to easily access the blockchain. Developers can then quickly create HTML5 games and application easily. With this LOI, ALAX is now part of Egretia as the payment solutions for game developers, of which there are 130,000 worldwide.
Wen Xiangdong, VP of Egret Technology, says, “ALAX is proving a much-needed service to our game developers. Previously, game developers would have had to wait for the settlement for up to 6 months. Now, through ALAX, they will receive the payment immediately giving them peace of mind. This truly incentivises our developers to create engaging and enjoyable content.”
Other LOIs signed by ALAX are with QuickGames and NiceGame, both are which are H5 Game vendors.
