LYNC recently joined forces with Astar Network to allow game developers and game studios to launch blockchain-based games in only a few minutes using LYNC’s infrastructure and SDK.

Astar is Japan’s most popular smart contract platform supporting both EVM and WebAssembly (Wasm) environments, and interoperability between them using a Cross-Virtual Machine. Their innovative Build2Earn program allows developers to earn incentives for building decentralized apps.

LYNC is a platform for developers that provides a scalable GameFi infrastructure for deploying web3 games, that keeps complexities aside.

Some key elements of the LYNC platform:
1) Kickstart your Web3 gaming journey on Astar in minutes, rather than months.
2) Account abstraction for a better gaming experience.
3) List game assets as NFTs on Astar Network in just a few minutes.
4) LYNC supports both Astar EVM and Wasm smart contract environments.
5) Enable in-game marketplace, gasless transactions, and in-game smart contract interaction on Astar Network without leaving the gaming environment.
6) Easily mint dynamic NFTs and Loot boxes to help boost user engagement.

Here’s an example of how anyone can deploy an NFT collection on Astar EVM:

LYNC NFT Deployer is a smart contract deployment platform that allows users to create and deploy 1/1, limited edition, and entire NFT collections. Soon supporting PSP 34/37, LYNC also allows developers to create their own marketplaces using the LYNC Marketplace npm package.

Game developers can add Astar Network and also setup in-game marketplace, In-game Minting, Dynamic NFT assets, Loot Boxes, Easy-On Ramp Off-Ramp, and more in minutes.

Here’s a tutorial that explains how to add Astar EVM inside your Unity editor, and launch games on Shibuya Testnet or Astar Mainnet in less than 2 mins:

All these existing features are just a glimpse of the next big thing.
