26 May 2021 - The mobile gaming metaverse company founded by former CEOs of YouTube, Zappos and BLITZ, GreenPark partners with Immutable X to build a secure, carbon neutral and gasless passage for sports fans to sprint into the thriving non-fungible token (NFT) industry.
GreenPark was co-founded by respected internet, e-commerce and game leaders, Chad Hurley, Nick Swinmurn and Ken Martin. The mobile platform provides a virtual sports universe and a proving ground for sports fans, which will forever change how modern generations will engage with sports, teams and athletes. Users can get recruited by their favourite teams and battle head-to-head against their rivals in epic battles with a touch of a button.
NFT and blockchain experts at Immutable X will be joining GreenPark’s all-star team to further advance the future of sports and esports fandom in the NFT industry. While GreenPark is already building a global meeting place for next-gen sports fans to express their fandom in “larger-than-life ways,” Immutable X will help GreenPark to pioneer their vision of amplifying the community experience with the ability to earn, trade and protect their digital items in the form of NFT.
“Our vision of the sports metaverse is a vibrant world of competition, collection and community and therefore - the ability for fans in GreenPark to earn, purchase, trade and protect their digital items becomes core to our economy. GreenPark expands the value of NFTs well beyond simple collection and gives them purpose, utility and a deeper sentimental meaning,” said Ken Martin, CEO and co-founder of GreenPark.
Immutable X was created by Immutable, a market leader in scaling blockchain marketplaces and StarkWare. Combined with StarkWare's world-class layer-2 scaling knowledge with Immutable’s deep understanding of the NFT space, Immutable X offers the first layer-2 scaling solution for NFTs on Ethereum. Its Alpha marketplace went live in early April this year and it has already proven scalable capability with up to 9,000+ trades per second via off-chain zk-rollups with Validium.
Immutable X will bring incredible opportunities for GreenPark sports fans and non-blockchain users across the globe to seamlessly convert their assets into NFTs, experience instant trade confirmation, and enjoy zero gas fees. Since the solution sits on top of the Ethereum blockchain, Immutable X can provide a decentralized and pro-consumer environment while not compromising user custody.
“The team behind GreenPark is truly remarkable and we are excited that they have chosen Immutable X to onboard their users onto the world’s leading public blockchain. This partnership will showcase the power of Layer-2 in bridging the gap for non-blockchain sports users and allowing them to enjoy Ethereum’s best features,” said Robbie Ferguson, co-founder of Immutable.
