Web3 Ecosystem Advancement by ChainSafe
Chainsafe has become one of the leading research and development firms in the web3 sphere since its emergence in 2017. It focuses on Web3-oriented infrastructure, particularly gaming. Chainsafe’s flagship offering is web3.unity which helps to link games through the development engine Unity with blockchain technologies.
Through its numerous web3 open-source tooling, Chainsafe has cemented its place as a leader in the evolving web3 gaming industry. Recently, its subsidiary, Chainsafe Gaming, launched a new version of the web3.unity SDK, the base layer for blockchain-enabled games.
Additionally, it released the newest consensus client, Lodestar. Developed in TypeScript, this consensus client makes Ethereum development accessible to a larger group of developers.
More so, ChainSafe remains a major contributor to “buidwithsygma, an interoperability layer for building cross-chain applications.”
Commenting on the recent development, Co-founder and CEO Aidan Hyman says the company was founded on the belief that decentralized technologies could revolutionize society.
“We’re forward to accelerating the growth of the web3 ecosystem. As time passed, the importance of our contributions has become increasingly clear,” Hyman concluded.
