NEOPIN, Futureverse and Catalyze Research team up to bolster global blockchain ecosystem
In an official announcement on Wednesday (KST), CeDeFi protocol NEOPIN revealed that it has signed a business agreement with Web3 consulting firm Catalyze Research and metaverse and AI tech company Futureverse to expand the global blockchain industry and discover promising Web3 projects.
Through this business agreement, the three enterprises plan on working towards two main objectives: expanding the global blockchain business industry and Futureverse’s open metaverse ecosystem. To do so, they have vowed to onboard NEOPIN’s gaming business partners to the Futureverse ecosystem and create decentralized finance (DeFi) products for NEOPIN based on The Root Network. They will also host hackathons and joint campaigns in efforts to incubate and accelerate Web3 projects in South Korea.
“South Korea is an intellectual property (IP) and blockchain powerhouse that serves as the backbone of the open metaverse that Futureverse is striving for. We look forward to bringing together various IPs such as games and content – including DeFi collaborations – with Futureverse’s powerful infrastructure to bring us one step closer to the open metaverse,” said Ben Ko, Co-Founder and CEO of Catalyze Research. Based in Seoul, Catalyze Research offers insights into the Web3 industry as well as consulting services like mapping and implementation of business strategies, marketing, research, due diligence and more.
“By working with NEOPIN, a leading DeFi company with an extensive network in South Korea, we will expand the Futureverse and The Root Network ecosystems and create an environment where users and developers can create an open metaverse together. This partnership will bring Futureverse to the forefront of the South Korean blockchain industry with NEOPIN and Catalyze’s experience, expertise, vision and insights into the Korean market,” added Futureverse CEO Aaron McDonald.
Redefining gaming, blockchain and DeFi
Futureverse is a developer of AI and metaverse technologies that elevate gaming experiences and enable open, scalable and interoperable applications. It is also home to one of the largest global NFT-based metaverse communities, which is being expanded through the layer 1 blockchain The Root Network. The company’s partners include globally renowned brands like FIFA, Warner Bros., Mastercard and Reebok.
NEOPIN, on the other hand, has been a trustworthy node validator for multiple blockchains since 2018 with a 0% accident and slashing rate and a 99.99999% block generation rate. It has also been bringing new faces to the industry by securing, investing in and incubating numerous domestic and foreign firms. Backed by this experience, NEOPIN plans to introduce innovative DeFi products through the newest three-way partnership.
“We will actively help various game and content service companies that have partnered with us to operate in the Futureverse ecosystem. Based on our trustworthiness and stability, we will contribute to leading the decentralized exchange (DEX) and DeFi services in Futureverse,” said Kim Yong-ki, CEO of NEOPIN.
