- Tech giant Alibaba Cloud announced the opening of a Blockchain lab for game developers exploring Web3 next month.
- This lab will be opened in partnership with Skeleton Crew Studio, a VR content development company and Japan’s most prominent event organizer BitSummit.
- Besides, Alibaba announced later this year that it would launch blockchain node services in Japan.
Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence hub of Alibaba Group, launched a blockchain lab in Shibuya this April to help Japanese game developers explore various business opportunities more business in the Web 3.0 era.
In partnership with Tokyu Land Corporation, this lab will be opened with Skeleton Crew Studio, a VR content and game development company that organizes BitSummit, which hosts an exclusive game event, Japan’s largest establishment in Kyoto, every year.
As an incubator to stay competitive for the times, Alibaba hopes to provide a place for game designers to gather and improve their skills in the latest blockchain technology.
For now, it will be for some customers working on collaborative projects with Alibaba Cloud and hackathon participants. At the same time, engineers from partner companies specializing in Alibaba Cloud and blockchain will provide local technical support with the latest Web3 technology trends and knowledge through seminars, workshops, and frequent connection events.
Developers can directly access Alibaba Cloud’s Web3 partners, such as Safeheron digital asset custody solution, NodeReal blockchain infrastructure, and COCOS-BCX scaling solution, also benefit from direct access to Alibaba’s Web3 partner ecosystem.
Alibaba Cloud will also host regular events, including a Web3 global hackathon called “HAPathon 2023” and a blockchain game hackathon.
Additionally, Alibaba Cloud announced later this year that it would launch blockchain node services in Japan. Previously, Alibaba Cloud experienced severe downtime lasting more than 24 hours, which resulted in the temporary closure of a large number of exchanges, such as OKX GATE.
The service is currently being tested for invited users, which will provide a more user-friendly experience for developers leveraging a scalable, efficient, and secure infrastructure.
