Edenia and Game X Change Team Up to Enable Players Converting NFTs Across Multiple Blockchains

Oct 13, 2021

TechBullion Vancouver, Canada – Edenia, the parent company of EOS Costa Rica ( https://eoscostarica.io/ ), a blockchain infrastructure provider on EOSIO, and Game X Change ( https://gamexchange.app/ ), a gaming platform that allows gamers to play and earn while moving in-game currency and assets, announced that they have partnered to integrate the platform into the WAX blockchain (https://on.wax.io/wax-io/). Integrating Game X Change into WAX allows users to convert NFTs and other assets across multiple blockchains. “With this partnership, Edenia shows its adaptability to work on different blockchains. It also proves our commitment to push exciting technologies like EOSIO forward into new sectors such as the gaming industry,” said Edgar Fernández, a co-founder of EOS Costa Rica. “Collaborating with the Game X Change team has been immensely rewarding and an opportunity to build bridges between blockchains.” Game X Change expects that users will easily exchange NFTs and other digital assets by integrating its platform into WAX – a blockchain with more than 15 million daily transactions (https://dappradar.com/industry-overview) from 325k users are deployed every day. Game X Change provides gamers with the opportunity to play and earn by transferring in-game currency and NFT assets from one game to another. Game X Change users can mint and store their NFTs and fungible tokens on Binance Smart Chain and Ethereum. With this new integration, users will be able to have all the same functionality on WAX. Game X Change also features the EXP token that can be issued and stored in the WAX blockchain when first linked to a Binance Smart Chain or Ethereum wallet. For developers, Game X Change provides the tools and technology that enable game developers to incorporate blockchain technology into their games by creating digital assets and currencies through the platform. Using Game X Change’s patent-pending technology, developers can include tokens or their own game currency/token, adding another layer of enhancement for their digital economic experience. Game X Change accelerates developers’ blockchain gaming experience by marketing, connecting, and optimizing titles within one platform. Moreover, using NFT Anywhere (https://nftanywhere.com/), users will be able to transfer NFTs across connected chains like Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain and soon to be WAX. This provides the opportunity for increased utility and interoperability with the connected assets. Connecting with the WAX ecosystem provides access to blockchain gaming projects that were once inaccessible. “I’m super excited about integrating with the WAX Ecosystem. There have always been a whole host of games and projects that we wanted to collaborate with, and now is the perfect opportunity,” said Haniff Knight, COO of Game X Change. “Partnering with Edenia has been a great experience. The partnership has allowed us to exchange a vast wealth of knowledge and understanding of the WAX Ecosystem that will prove beneficial as we push our multichain goals.” About Game X Change Game X Change is the future of game asset exchange. It positions itself as the global protocol for the movement of assets and in-game currencies! It seeks to become one of the largest blockchain gaming technology solutions providers with Play and Earn Game SDK integration, NFT marketplace (incl. APIs), In-game Currency Networks, Cross Chain NFT’s, and NFT tools. This full suite of tools allows developers to innovate through the use of in-game currencies and NFT assets powered by Game X Change.
