Ultra Partners with Polkastarter Gaming, the Leading Fundraising Platform’s Gaming Division
Ultra and Polkastarter Gaming join forces to bring new opportunities for gaming projects
We’re excited to announce Ultra’s recent partnership with Polkastarter, an industry-leading fundraising platform with over 30 gaming partners and a team with more than 20 years of experience in the gaming industry. This exciting partnership leverages Ultra’s ecosystem and Polkastarter Gaming’s platform to offer innovative resources to gaming projects.
Together, we aim to help alleviate the limitations game developers may face when kickstarting their projects. Polkastarter Gaming’s expertise in the field, particularly in assisting projects from the early stages all the way up until they go to market and curating the best gaming experiences, will aid in bringing even more enthralling games and apps to the Ultra platform.
Bringing more projects to the Ultraverse!
Ultra is creating an interconnected ecosystem for gamers to access a variety of services through one single client. Ultra’s games store, Ultra Games, offers players various ways to truly take control of their gaming experiences. When logging into the platform, players will be able to explore games, new content, streams, and tournaments, as well as sell their digital assets (games, DLCs, in-game items, and more) on the Uniq Marketplace.
Partnering with Polkastarter Gaming affirms Ultra’s mission to bring more top-notch content into the Ultra ecosystem. We’ll also be working together in various other ways:
Promotion and introductions
Ultra and Polkastarter Gaming have agreed on a co-marketing partnership, aiming to expand coverage for both brands.
Polkastarter Gaming will also become a new source of relevant games and apps for Ultra. Once in the platform, these will be available to purchase using crypto or credit card using Ultra’s proprietary technology.
Selected companies and game developers will gain access to Ultra’s SDK (software development kit), testing and development tools, and the blockchain state AP. For newer projects, these resources will facilitate the introduction to Ultra’s tools and technology.
Distribution and listings
Ultra will distribute games, apps, and Uniqs (NFTs), introduced by Polkastarter Gaming, throughout Ultra’s ecosystem. Ultra will also list an unannounced carbon-neutral token initiative on the Polkastarter DEX.
“Polkastarter has proven to be a very dynamic and successful platform with whom we’re really excited to collaborate. This strategic partnership between Ultra and Polkastarter elevates the strengths of our respective services and further asserts our common goal to push the game industry into a new paradigm that will offer new opportunities to both gamers and game developers.”
