An Introduction to NEOWIZ PLAY STUDIO Blockchain Lab.
We are “NEOWIZ PLAY STUDIO Blockchain Lab.” (NBLab), an organisation under NEOWIZ PLAY STUDIO Corp., to focus on blockchains.
Our parent company, NEOWIZ PLAY STUDIO, is a game developer and service operator and is currently no. 1 in mobile social casino category in Korea. It has much interest in blockchain technology. We have been established to commercialise the technology based on that interest.
We believe that the blockchain technology can be a stepping stone to open up new possibilities on existing business models. With that in mind, we focus not only on technical research but also on the actual business application. In close collaboration with the EOSeoul team, an EOS Block Producer and also NEOWIZ Group affiliates, we are constantly monitoring trends related to blockchains and exchanging a lot of ideas.
What we are doing
As we are a company solely dedicated to the game developments as well as the service operations for a long time, we mainly focus on practical applications of the blockchain technology. One of the examples would be the random number generator (RNG), which is an essential component when implementing the randomness in the game.
Our first research result, “RNG on Blockchain,” is an important issue directly linked to the transparency of the operator in terms of the game service. We wish to provide an innovative way to secure the transparency through the RNG implementation on the blockchain, to provide more trust to service users and also technical capability to handle a large volume of user requests simultaneously.
Based on our years of experience on the existing game developments and the service operations at NEOWIZ PLAY STUDIO, we fully understand the importance of the visualisation of the services from the users’ perspective. This is one of the reasons why we are doing a lot of research on the user experience (UX) of the blockchain. There are a lot of barriers on the users in order for the blockchain to gain tractions to be on the mainstream. We defined that the large participation of users is one of the key essential elements for the popular usage of the blockchain and therefore we will do our best to lower the barriers in the future.
It is our philosophy to announce any findings we have regardless of how small they may be in a hope that it will be discussed to help us as well as the community to bridge the gap between the expectation of the business level applications and theoretical models.
Until now, if the blockchain was regarded as a “new technology”, we will continue our research on bring the blockchain to the real life applicable technology.
