We see great benefits from their expertise and influence, and we are excited about the potential to enhance MarbleX’s resources and experiences by collaborating with our Saga ecosystem.”

Saga’s expertise goes beyond providing technological infrastructure; the partnership includes providing user acquisition capabilities to MarbleX. This strategic move fortifies Saga’s presence in the growing Asian mobile games market — projected to exceed $65 billion in 2024. It also accelerates MarbleX’s global user base through Saga’s extensive ecosystem that spans Europe, the Americas, and Asia.

Hong Jin-Pyo, CEO of MarbleX, said in a statement, “Saga has a brand and ethos that is truly dedicated to enabling the next generation of gaming. Putting a priority on bridging the very wide gap between traditional and web3 gaming provided Saga with a succinct understanding of what developers need to get us there. And we have full confidence that Saga’s infrastructure can support the scale and quality that is essential to bring web3 gaming to a broad user base.”

MarbleX has outlined three primary areas of focus to expedite the adoption of web3 gaming: a multi-chain strategy, content acquisition with a focus on triple-A games, and proactive global marketing to reach gamers worldwide.

As a Layer-1 protocol, Saga has more than 320 innovator projects, of which 80% are games, as it gears up for its mainnet launch in Spring 2024. The protocol has solidified partnerships with flagship Web3 projects, including Polygon, Avalanche, and Celestia.

MarbleX aims to bring high-quality blockchain games to the market, offering key services such as a cryptocurrency wallet, token staking, and an NFT Marketplace. Founded in 2022, Saga is built on Cosmos and has expanded its presence by bringing diverse ecosystems into its Saga Multiverse through strategic partnerships.
