Cartesi to Showcase a Fully Decentralized Poker Game in Partnership with Polygon
A fully decentralized poker game that is developed by Cartesi using Cartesi’s Descartes SDK and runs on Polygon’s PoS Chain
Cartesi and Polygon are excited to announce the development of a fully decentralized Poker game on top of Polygon’s PoS Chain. The Cartesi team is developing the game with Cartesi’s Descartes SDK using traditional software stacks as as well computationally intensive encryption algorithms (mental poker).
The poker game is currently in an advanced stage of development and upon completion, Cartesi and Polygon will showcase how powerful both technologies can be to the nascent blockchain game industry, and also how developers or organizations will be able to re-use the tech on other turn-based games. Software developers, for the first time, will be able to build such decentralized games with mainstream software components supported by Linux.
Cartesi’s Descartes SDK brings the ability to scale computation and to use mainstream software components to build decentralized logic. The game uses LibTMCG, a software library that enables data privacy for online card games. Because of Cartesi’s technology mainstream software components like LibTMCG can be used in a fully decentralized way on top of blockchains. Polygon, in its turn, provides a highly efficient side-chain with usability and economy compatible with the costs and speed expected for a smooth end-user experience.
“Cartesi and Polygon are both committed to bringing convenience and efficiency to developers and the users of their applications. The integration of the two technologies unlock interesting and unique possibilities, with the decentralized poker being a concrete result of our collaboration. It is a quite relevant tech demo not only for decentralized game developers but for the blockchain ecosystem as a whole.” said Erick de Moura, CEO of Cartesi.
“We are excited to see this fusion of Polygon & Cartesi’s technology to run code in a linux machine in a web3 environment. We feel that this combination can be leveraged in several different ways to bring never seen before flexibility to the blockchain ecosystem and thereby involve more web2 developers in the growing blockchain ecosystem.” said Arjun Kalsy, VP Growth — Polygon.
The showcase is expected to be launched in Q2, 2021, with a technical paper to be released prior. Cartesi and Polygon will continue to work closely together to allow for the easy deployment of DApps for developers, and most importantly, the mainstream adoption of blockchain-enabled solutions.
Anyone with an interest in Cartesi, Polygon, or with questions of any sort should join Cartesi’s development community on Discord!
Polygon is the first well-structured, easy-to-use platform for Ethereum scaling and infrastructure development. Its core component is Polygon SDK, a modular, flexible framework that supports building and connecting Secured Chains like Plasma, Optimistic Rollups, zkRollups, Validium etc and Standalone Chains like Matic POS, designed for flexibility and independence. Polygon’s Layer 2 chains have seen widespread adoption with 100+ Dapps, ~7M txns and ~200K unique users.
Cartesi is taking smart contracts to the next level. It is a chain-agnostic layer-2 infrastructure, solving the pressing problem of scalability on the most important blockchains. Most notably, Cartesi implements a unique Linux-supporting VM, rollups and side-chains to revolutionize the way developers create blockchain applications, allowing them to use mainstream software components.
