Arbitrum enlisted as web3 gamer Aurory pursues multi-chain aspirations

Quick Take

  • Aurory’s gaming assets will now be able to live on either Solana or Arbitrum, an Ethereum Layer-2 network.

Web3 gaming company Aurory announced that the digital assets users can acquire playing its free-to-play games can now exist on Arbitrum, an Ethereum Layer-2 network.

“We have always imagined Aurory existing across multiple gaming ecosystems, and this is the first step in realizing that vision,” Jonathan Campeau, an executive producer at Aurory, said in a statement. The company’s gaming assets will now live on either the Arbitrum or Solana blockchains.

Aurory also said in the statement that gamers will be able to utilize its SyncSpace technology, which allows players to deposit gaming assets on Solana and then withdraw them on Arbitrum, or vice versa. The company hopes the plan will create a "seamless cross-chain experience for users."

Arbitrum network

There has been significant activity involving the Arbitrum network in recent weeks. Last month, not only did Xai, a gaming-focused permissionless Layer 3 blockchain, say it would launch later this year on the network, The Graph, a leading indexing and query protocol for organizing blockchain data, said it had begun the final phase of migrating to Arbitrum. Earlier this month, Cega expanded its structured DeFi investments product to the Arbitrum ecosystem.

Aurory also said that the gaming assets that players can choose to have live on Arbitrum will include Aury tokens, “playable NFT characters, skins, and Neftie eggs.” These assets either have, or will have, utility on Aurory’s two flagship games which are Adventure and Tactics.
