TRON will invest $100 million over the next three years, creating a blockchain fund used to develop a global blockchain game ecosystem and jointly implement a “TRON Arcade” developer support program together with Cocos-BCX.
Whenever a new technology emerges, games are often the first to realize and adopt the encompassing applications of these technologies. Take for example, the mobile platform which has greatly evolved since the first iPhone was launched in 2007, and to this day the total mobile game market has already grown to approximately $50 billion.
Blockchain technology can be envisioned as an essential technology of Web 3.0’ value exchange. Which emphasizes the originality and transaction possibilities of digital assets and can also lead to more visionary and development dimensions and not just only for game applications but particularly related to the economic system designs for the game. It is expected to have a big impact on the global game industry in the future.
TRON is one of the world’s top 10 blockchain projects, focusing on supporting consumer-use technology. Since the launch of their MainNet in June, it has been continuously updated. In addition to supporting a stable speed of 2,000 TPS, and their virtual machine will be provided in approximately 100 days which supports various languages such as Solidity as well as developers use of smart contracts.
The number of accounts and daily trading volumes are also exceeding other global, well known chain projects like EOS and Ethereum. At the same time, TRON has said it has deployed over 300 team members in San Francisco, Beijing and Malta to support global developer ecosystems and partners.
It has been 10 years since the first version of Cocos2d was released in March 2008. Cocos have been interested in the blockchain market since 2017 and successfully held the 12th Developer Conference (Cocos Blockchain Game Developer Conference) in Beijing in the spring of 2018.
At that conference the intuitive blockchain development components and tools using the Cocos-BCX (Cocos Blockchain Expedition) platform were showcased. Cocos-BCX is a complete and easy-to-use blockchain game development environment platform that includes a visual development component and an ecosystem environment.
As of March 2018, the Cocos community is the largest open source technology community in the industry with 1.3 million registered users and more than 300,000 active users per month.
Over 100,000 developers are actively involved in the forums to provide feedback and discussions on various issues, as well as guiding and assisting other developers, and more than 1,000 dedicated developers contribute to Github’s Cocos code, documentation and training materials.
Combining games and traffic is a well-established and venerable business model that has been proven on the internet. Thus, TRON will collaborate with Cocos-BCX on a “TRON ARCADE” developer support program that will leverage these strengths of both companies to create a worldwide blockchain game ecosystem.
