Wasder, a global gaming platform or social microverse for gamers, has announced its launch on Solana, a market-leading blockchain technology, to become the primary gateway to future metaverses.

The collaboration establishes a new bar for both gamers and publishers as Wasder is the first popular gaming platform and digital microverse of its sort. The new launch allows gamers to take part in the Game of Wasder, a truly gamified adventure embedded inside the social network that allows users to get more involved with games like Minecraft, Call of Duty, Roblox, Fortnite, Garena Free Fire, PUBG Mobile, and others.

Understanding the Game of Wasder

The Game of Wasder creates a more immersive experience when it comes to interacting with brands. It allows game publishers and developers to host their communities on Wasder, combined with Game Spaces. Furthermore, it provides players with a variety of other high-value options, such as showcasing their in-game items like NFTs, Battlepasses, and prizes while also exposing them to a bigger audience.

Wasder’s rewards are exclusive NFTs from games with whom Wasder has collaborated. Wasder has already teamed up with Gala Games’ Townstar and Vorto Games’ Hash Rush and will announce numerous additional partners in Q1 2022. Wasder’s Battlepasses will also be available to users, allowing them to gain rewards playing a specific game within a specific timeframe. In addition, players can display their rewards/NFTs on their personalized profiles, giving them a new avenue to promote themselves in the group as well as their reward stockpile.

Speaking on the new launch, Thomas Gronnevik, CEO of Wasder, gave a detailed insight into what Wasder looks like. Speaking on gamer’s ownership, he said, “Players have historically been unable to have ownership over their items in games. What this means is that there have been limitations to who you can trade them with, or moving them between your own accounts, or other artificial demands that you had to go through in order to do anything with the items you had either earned or bought. NFTs allow for gamers to really control their own things which means that they can trade them between their own accounts, or with their friends, or sell them if they like. Remember old Pokémon trading cards? No one controls them but you.”

In a release, Wasder opened up on the goal of its platform. It wrote, “ We wanted to create a system that gives every player equal access to earning & acquiring really cool rewards & NFTs. After every season, control and ownership of those rewards & items should be in the hands of the players, ensuring that everyone can enjoy what we create, and that it creates a vibrant, decentralized, and player-controlled economy after each season ends.”

Why Solana?

Wasder noted that it looked out for a platform that would return power back to the players and also share in the vision of massive adoption. Solana ticked all the boxes. Here are some reasons why Solana was the perfect destination

  • It’s highly scalable.
  • Their transaction speeds are very high.
  • Low transaction fees and fast-paced transactions. 
  • Highly sustainable

Apart from developing the Game of Wasder on the Solana, Wasder plans to use the Solana blockchain for a variety of purposes, including the minting of NFTs. Although Wasder intends to enable various blockchains for NFTs in the future, the Solana ecosystem will be the first and will power the basic mechanism that allows players to exchange NFTs.
