The firm strongly believed that its platform will be able to enhance the fair factor in the current gaming field, via employing “programmable and instant money, tradability of games and in-game assets” non-fungible tokens.
“When considering how best to launch and support Ultra mainnet, we sought out a mix of trusted technical partners from within the EOSIO community and established corporate partners from the technology and video-games industries to work with us as block producers. Our initial technical block producers have worked with us on our chain design, development and performance. We value their trust, expertise and ongoing support.” Ultra’s CTO Michael Dunn further expressed.
The firm further revealed that, apart from the optimizing benefit brought upon by the 3 technical BPs, they would also act as advisors for corporate recruitment.
