CertiK Joins The DeFi Gaming Alliance To Boost Security In The Industry

A joint effort between a plethora of sub-Ethereum projects, professionals, and service providers, aiming to upscale the decentralized gaming experience to its modest form, the DeFi Gaming Alliance is formed among AnRKey X, Ferrum Network, Exeedme, DigiCol, and CertiK.

DGA In A Nutshell

The DeFi Gaming Alliance is essentially an open community of DeFi leaders and pioneers, tech savvies, gamers, and fintech professionals among other enthusiasts. DGA’s goal is to bridge the innovations brought to the broader Ethereum network by DeFi protocols, with the multi-billion dollar, well-established gaming industry that lacks the incentive to join the blockchain train, analogizing the complexity such involvement requires from participants.

To speed up and ease the process of implementing Web3 goodies into traditional gaming platforms, the DGA envisions a gamification plan that would make deep DeFi easy to grasp, but also fun and educating at the same time. In parallel to that, the DGA acts as an incubator for new and existing projects seeking to contribute to the gaming industry through DeFi.

The overall plan is to be in a position to welcome, foster, and support the development of decentralized token-based economies that are more familiar and pleasant to navigate for gaming enthusiasts and don’t necessarily look like a Bloomberg terminal.

In addition, we’re committed to bringing edgy use-cases revolving around token functions, NFTs, and automated smart-contracts, while enhancing the security of all projects that fall under the DGA umbrella.

Our confidence for such an Alliance gets its power from a variety of reasons that underpin the importance of merging these two high-pace, yet unparalleled industries.

  • There are over 2.7 billion gamers worldwide, with over 41% of them being female
  • Video Games make up for larger industries than North American sports and movies combined
  • Global gaming sales have risen to nearly $180 billion in 2020
  • The global gaming market is expected to exceed $256 billion by 2025
  • Tencent generated $19.7 billion in revenue in 2018 alone from gaming company investments
  • DeFi trade volume in Q4 2020 was around $17.8 billion
  • The DeFi market grew more than 25 times in 2020 alone
  • NFT assets were traded for a total volume of $473.7 million in Q1 of 2021, double that of Q1 2020.

"DeFi Gaming Alliance is aimed at paving the way for mass adoption of DeFi gaming. The market is still in its infancy and there are several obstacles to overcome. The DGA is our answer to these obstacles. With a focus on technological advancement on the user experience and accessibility for the masses, founded on dynamic architecture enabling cross-platform interoperability, all with industry standardized security testing will provide truly safer platforms and products that are sustainable and scalable. By bringing together the right thought leaders and industry experts all motivated by the same goals, we will take this industry to new heights — revolutionizing DeFi, NFTs, and Gaming.”-J.D. Salbego, Founder, CEO & Art Director at AnRKey X.
