As previously reported by Cointelegraph, Aleph.im was the only blockchain firm to participate in Ubisoft’s sixth annual Entrepreneurs Lab, which began in May and concluded in June.
In order to further its blockchain goals, Ubisoft has joined the Aleph.im network in the capacity of channel node operator, laying the groundwork for future collaboration with the distributed cloud platform. Ubisoft is a French video game producer with global reach.
As a core channel node operator, Ubisoft contributes to the aleph.im decentralised network by staking, validating, and managing the decentralised network’s transactions.
All nodes are eligible to join the network, but only once they have staked a total of 500,000 ALEPH tokens does their status as a core channel node become active.
In an interview with CNBC, aleph.im founder and CEO Jonathan Schemoul stated that his company’s “primary mission is to make decentralised cloud services a reality.”
“At Ubisoft, we believe that Blockchain holds a key to the future of the videogame industry, bringing new possibilities for players and developers alike,” explained Didier Genevois, a blockchain technology developer at Ubisoft Didier Genevois.
He went on to say:
“Beyond NFTs themselves, the decentralized storage of their metadata appears to us as a determining factor in fulfilling the whole promise of true ownership. In this perspective, the exploration of the services offered by the Aleph.im decentralized network is particularly promising.”
Ubisoft’s exposure to the aleph.im blockchain network is believed to have increased as a result of the blockchain network’s participation in the company’s Entrepreneurs Lab, which included ten other IT businesses.
According to Ubisoft, the company is investigating larger blockchain efforts in addition to its existing ones. A blockchain-based collectibles platform was created in June 2020 by the corporation to raise funds for the United Nations Children’s Fund, also known as UNICEF.
In the same year, Ubisoft revealed that it had joined the Tezos network as a validator node.
