TSM and Avalanche to Bring Web3 Features to 30 Million Gamers
Professional esports leader TSM and competitive gaming app Blitz will leverage Avalanche’s industry leading blockchain technology.
TSM, the global esports, video game, and creator-focused company, and Blitz, the company’s competitive gaming platform, will be leveraging Avalanche, the cutting-edge blockchain platform, to revolutionize the gaming industry. The collaboration names Avalanche as the Exclusive Blockchain Partner for TSM and Blitz.
With Avalanche, TSM will create new experiences for players, fans, and creators, marking a major step forward in bringing player-first Web3 gaming products mainstream. TSM and Blitz will also use Core to power all user payments and to store, sell, and purchase digital assets.
As part of the partnership, Blitz, the company’s gaming app with 30 million users, will be built on an Avalanche Subnet, custom blockchains designed to maximize speed, security, and scalability. TSM will host Avalanche-branded tournaments on the Blitz Subnet to helps gamers improve their skills with performance insights and learning tools, and also allows players to compete in Blitz Arena for prizes.
TSM and Blitz will be pioneering innovations with Subnets powered by $AVAX. Blitz’s Subnet will use $AVAX for gas fees, burning a portion of $AVAX fees with every transaction that gamers make. In the future, the Blitz Subnet intends to evolve into an Elastic Subnet, enabling greater community involvement by allowing users to validate the Subnet.
“Partnering with TSM brings truly innovative gaming experiences to players around the world,” said John Wu, President at Ava Labs. “Avalanche’s fully customizable subnets were created to help organizations like TSM push the boundaries of what is possible for gaming with sub-second transaction speed, scalability, and security for millions of users.”
