Wemade’s unagi(x) Integrates Chainlink CCIP On WEMIX 3.0 To Unlock Omnichain Gaming Experience

As the blockchain industry’s standard for cross-chain token and data transfers, Chainlink’s Cross-Chain Interoperability Protocol (CCIP) allows web3 developers to build advanced cross-chain applications with superior user experiences. Beyond uniting DeFi and TradFi on the path toward an internet of contracts, CCIP is also unlocking feature-rich cross-chain ecosystems in the blockchain gaming industry.

Today, Wemade, one of South Korea’s largest game developers, announced decentralized omnichain messaging protocol unagi(x) integrated CCIP on WEMIX’s global blockchain gaming platform. CCIP will power Wemade’s highly anticipated AAA MMORPG web3 game, NIGHT CROWS, which launches in 170 countries on March 12. The CCIP integration across six chains – WEMIX, Kroma, Avalanche, BNB Chain, Ethereum, and Polygon – will enable an immersive experience that allows users to tokenize in-game assets on their preferred chain.

“We selected Chainlink CCIP as it offers a proven solution for cross-chain token transfers and multi-chain abstraction to enhance user experiences across Web3 gaming and beyond,” said Henry Chang, CEO of Wemade in an official announcement. “By seamlessly connecting WEMIX to the multi-chain ecosystem and enabling cross-chain transfers of in-game NIGHT CROWS tokens and NFTs with CCIP, we’re unlocking a novel omnichain gaming experience and interchain economy that will help drive the growth of all of Web3.”

“I am very impressed by how Wemade is on the cutting edge of blockchain gaming, a growing part of the entire blockchain economy, which I believe will eventually intersect with DeFi in new and interesting ways,” said Chainlink co-founder Sergey Nazarov. “We are excited to support them in their plans to lead the blockchain gaming community into the future with a secure connectivity solution.”
