PUBG developer Krafton and Solana Labs revealed that they are teaming up to build blockchain games together.

Krafton is one of the biggest Korean game development companies in the world, banking on the massive success of battle royale game PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds.

The two companies describe their partnership as a “long-term cooperative relationship for the development and operation of blockchain- and NFT-based games and services.”


Unlike Ethereum, Solana’s network offers faster transactions and lower fees, which is essential in NFT Play-to-Earn games. Before moving to its own Ronin network, Axie Infinity previously used Ethereum, which charged players up to $100 per transaction depending on network activity.

Other leading developers are expected to join the movement in blockchain gaming, Web3, and metaverse soon.

Could we see a Play-to-Earn version of PUBG in the future? There’s no information about that yet, as it’s currently unknown if Krafton plans on integrating blockchain technology to its existing titles in the market.

  1. Binance’s launch of the new GMT token on the launchpad was a boost to the liquidity of the entire GameFi and Play2earn market as a whole. We see other gaming tokens starting to rise as well, but the thing is that the games that developers are offering us right now are completely casual and not exciting in any way. Let’s see if a team like Krafton can really make a great game.
