“MatchBox is on the road to developing the next wave of infrastructure for the next generation of video games. Composable games and DApps that empower devs and creators and hundreds of millions of users.– Yonatan Ben-Shimon, co-founder and CEO of MatchBoxDAO
“MatchBox supports new games that want to take part in the growing video game market of the StarkNet ecosystem. Their support and mentorship for game creators is an important contribution for StarkNet. – Uri Kolodny, co-founder and CEO of StarkWare
Why choose StarkNet?
The many advantageous features of StarkNet made the team rely on it. Its price, speed and the security provided by the Ethereum mainnet will allow games to be developed entirely on-chain. On the StarkWare side, its community of developers as well as its ability to consistently deliver high-quality products put it number 1 on the table when the question of a collaboration came up.
Use of funds
The fruits of this funding round will be used to develop MatchBoxDAO products. The first product will be MatchBox Spark. This is an incubation program that will allow teams with high potential to find funding and mentoring to develop their vision. The second will be MatchBox Studiosa collection of games and a suite of infrastructure tools aimed at accelerating the development of on-chain video games.
Funds will also be allocated to MatchBox ecosystem development teams to help them quickly and easily create on-chain gaming primitives, mechanisms and products.
