Xterio to Launch Gaming-Oriented Blockchain in Collaboration with AltLayer, aiming for Wider Web3 Gaming Adoption


Xterio, a leading Web3 gaming publisher and platform, and AltLayer, an open and decentralized protocol for launching native and ZK rollup stacks, have announced the launch of a game-focused restaked rollup designed specifically for Web3 games.

Xterio is a Web3 gaming ecosystem & infrastructure, distinguishing itself as a gaming publisher with top-notch development skills, unparalleled distribution expertise, and over $80M raised in ecosystem funding. With five AAA games and over 45 gaming partners, Xterio has amassed a gaming community of over two million users worldwide and developed the most successful gaming NFT launchpad. Co-founded by industry veterans like Michael Tong, former COO of NetEase and CSO of FunPlus, and Jeremy Horn, former Vice President of Jam City, Xterio is committed to accelerating the integration of Web3 technology into gaming and onboarding billions of gamers.

The Xterio chain will be run and managed by AltLayer. It will operate as a Layer 2 settling on Ethereum and utilize the OP Stack as the rollup framework with EigenDA as the Data Availability (DA) layer. Unlike a classical rollup, Xterio chain will instead take the form of a “restaked rollup”, a framework pioneered by AltLayer. As a restaked rollup, the Xterio chain will come with MACH – an Actively Validated Services (AVS) offering faster finality with economic security by leveraging EigenLayer’s restaking mechanism. The rollup will focus on web3 and AI-powered games, with plans to build an on-chain ecosystem around AAA games leveraging the $XTER token.

In addition to being integrated across multiple Xterio titles, the Xterio chain will act as the backbone of the Xterio ecosystem, offering a gateway to a vibrant gaming ecosystem and empowering players to effortlessly collect, own, and trade digital assets in a safe and accessible environment and allowing developers to mint, distribute, and manage millions of assets seamlessly. The chain, alongside the comprehensive Xterio tech platform, intends to make on-chain elements almost invisible thanks to account abstracted wallets, seamless off-chain and on-chain systems, cheap transactions, single-click purchases, flexible payment marketplace and launchpad, and more. In addition to facilitating transactions, the Xterio marketplace and NFT launchpad will embrace the Xterio token as a versatile payment method, accepted for both purchases and gas fees, ensuring a smooth and convenient user experience.

Looking ahead, the Xterio chain will open its doors to game developers seeking a sophisticated yet user-friendly solution to power their creations. Through the Xterio chain, developers will have access to the most extensive first-party gaming catalog in Web3 and tap into its over 2 million user base, which is currently rapidly growing.

With its promise of easy integration and cutting-edge capabilities, the Xterio chain stands ready to drive the future of gaming.

Yaoqi Jia, CEO of AltLayer, said: “Xterio serves as a robust, highly respected platform to its numerous, highly-regarded content partners in the gaming space. As the nature of gaming evolves and calls for higher-performing game mechanics, game economics, and in-game transactions grow, we’re delighted that Xterio has embraced rollups to strengthen its products’ technical capabilities. With AltLayer’s novel restaked rollup product MACH, Xterio will also enjoy security and much faster finality features built using EigenLayer’s restaking mechanism that will ultimately underpin a better gaming experience to benefit developers and players alike.”

Michael Tong, CEO of Xterio, expressed: “Through our collaboration with AltLayer, Xterio is spearheading the development of a cutting-edge blockchain infrastructure to fuel our Web3 gaming titles and extending its availability to partners and collaborators. By harnessing the expansive ETH ecosystem and addressing critical user concerns like gas fees and rapid transaction finality, Xterio is poised to emerge as a frontrunner in high-quality Web3 and beyond.”

Highly regarded for its on-chain gaming capabilities by industry bigwigs, this Binance Labs-backed platform is now building out its game and technology functions, including artificial intelligence (AI) integration and token launch.

FIA urges CFTC to regulate use cases rather than AI itself

“We urge the CFTC to refrain from crafting new regulations that generally regulate AI because this approach presents certain well-known pitfalls. By approaching the issue from the perspective of AI as a technology, rather than the use case for the technology, corresponding regulations would likely necessitate a definition of AI. We anticipate that any attempt to properly define AI would be very challenging and require considerable resources.”
