Since our inception in 2018, Immutable has spent countless hours working towards our mission of powering the next generation of Web3 games. As we grow, so does our collection of Immutable X-powered NFTs. While major marketplaces like OpenSea are important to the broader ecosystem, there was still a significant void in the market begging to be filled…
A player-focused community marketplace built specifically with Web3 gamers’ needs in mind.
AQUA is one of the first gaming-specific marketplaces in the Immutable Ecosystem, providing fully customized marketplace solutions and go-to-market strategy advisory for all Immutable games.
While AQUA will help Immutable’s catalog of blockchain gaming partners gain traction and raise awareness across broader gaming audiences, Immutable will provide the backend technology and ecosystem enabling these games to thrive. With deep insights and analytics on in-game assets, AQUA empowers players to explore the evolving world of Web3 gaming while providing them with the content and tools required to buy, sell, and trade gaming NFTs from their favorite titles.
A truly perfect fit.
Funded by leading NFT investment platform DIGITAL, AQUA boasts a highly skilled leadership team of seasoned gaming industry veterans with previous executive experience at Meta (fka Facebook Gaming), Riot Games, and WiLine.
As decades-long gamers themselves, it’s this past history that’s empowered the team to understand the needs of Web3 gamers and design a better experience for players in the metaverse.
And major industry leaders are taking notice.
Despite only launching in May of 2022, AQUA has already onboarded top blockchain games like Axie Infinity, Gods Unchained, and Guild of Guardians, with many more games soon to follow suit.
As more games continue to join the marketplace, transaction throughput, gas fees, and security will remain a top priority. And that’s exactly where Immutable comes in.
Using our powerful ZK-rollup technology, Immutable X will provide AQUA’s full suite of gaming partners with verifiable provenance of in-game digital assets as fully-carbon neutral NFTs, all of which can be, bought, sold, and traded, gas-free on the Ethereum blockchain.
According to AQUA CEO Sean Ryan, this innovation will help spearhead the global adoption of Web3 gaming.
"We're bullish on blockchain gaming being the right technology to deliver real value for players, and partnering with IMX expedites that vision," he said. "We seek partners that understand player needs, going beyond what's standard to deliver custom experiences, and we're excited to build them with IMX."
By focusing only on in-game assets with real utility, AQUA and Immutable X will create a better marketplace experience, hyper-serving current gamers, while acting as a point of entry and discovery for new players.
