In addition to the seed funding round, Swords of Blood partnered with Polygon, one of the industry’s fastest and most widely used blockchains.
Polygon is a blockchain with a high-security standard and is famous for its transaction speed and low-cost network fees. Swords of Blood is reportedly pleased to build on Polygon, as its players will not have to worry about selling or moving their NFTs, as of the cost of gas fees.
Urvit Goel, the Vice President and Head of Global Games and Platform BD at Polygon Studios, stated:
“We are confident that Polygon’s high speeds combined with low transaction fees are a great fit for high-quality games such as Swords of Blood, and we are excited to collaborate with Hitbox Games to offer gamers around the world the most convenient and accessible framework possible. This Web3-native approach guarantees that players will always retain full control over their in-game items without needless complexities and roadblocks, allowing them to fully focus on Swords of Blood’s engaging gameplay and story.”
