MapleStory Universe, a global blockchain project of Nexon Group, has entered a strategic partnership with Avalanche, a smart contracts platform that has the fastest transaction speed among existing layer 1 blockchains.

Avalanche supports a highly scalable app-specific platform called “Subnet,” which provides a smooth gaming experience even through surges of transactions.

Through this partnership, MapleStory Universe plans to utilise Avalanche’s “Subnet” technology to expand its blockchain ecosystem and continue various activities such as technology-related collaborations to build a stable service.

“I cannot imagine a bigger opportunity in Web3 than what MapleStory Universe is doing, and we are honored to partner with MapleStory Universe to steward this IP using the power of Avalanche. We have been extremely impressed with the vision since our first conversation, and the focus on long-term sustainability could easily onboard millions of users on-chain,” Ed Chang, Head of Gaming at Ava Labs, said.

“Our partnership with Avalanche will allow us to build a stable and complete blockchain ecosystem, enabling us to securely service various dApps along with MapleStory N to amplify our competitiveness,” Angela Son, Partnership Lead at MapleStory Universe, said.

MapleStory Universe plans to release its blockchain-based PC MMOPRG “MapleStory N” in certain countries within the year, followed by many other tools and applications to come.

Additionally, MapleStory Universe and Avalanche will hold a joint panel talk at MapleStory Universe’s side event on the week of the 2024 Game Developers Conference (GDC) in San Francisco, on March 20th. At this event, Angela Son and Edward Chang will introduce the process of incorporating blockchain into game projects.

The mayor of Quezon City, Josefina Belmonte, has said that all officials and employees of her administration are prohibited from entering the soon-to-open Solaire Resort North casino property, being developed in the city by Philippines-listed Bloomberry Resorts Corp.

Belmonte said Solaire North has created an electronic databank consisting of photographs of all 19K city employees that will be used to assist casino security in preventing access to excluded persons.

The mayor was speaking at the inaugural “International Conference on Responsible Gambling and Gaming Addiction”, held in Quezon City and backed by the country’s gaming regulator, the Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp (Pagcor).

According to Ms Belmonte, an electronic device posted at each entrance of the casino at Solaire Resort North would identify any city government official or employee, barring their access to the gaming venue. Quezon City public servants would still be allowed to visit other areas of the resort, she added.

“Even if one wears a wig, a mask or a hat, one’s face can still be detected using a very sophisticated system,” the mayor said.
