Hamburg – The gamigo group is happy to announce the partnership with the Laurel Foundry Ltd. Today the Laurel Foundry is launching the GamerToken: a blockchain based token that will reward players for their in-game activities, give them the opportunity to buy, sell, and exchange unique digital assets on a global marketplace, and improve the security of in-game transactions. As an established company, gamigo group will be one of the first launch partners to integrate this additional ecosystem and blockchain technology into its game portfolio. The future functionality can be tested in one of gamigo’s most successful titles: Fiesta Online. For that, a demo version of the game and the marketplace will be available. GamerToken empowers gamers to reward their passion to play games and truly own their in-game items.

By implementing this new technology, gamigo approves their ideology of combining innovation with rewarding their loyal and active user base together with a strong focus on a growing and successful business model. As strong proponents of blockchain technology, gamigo believes it’s time that all participants in the gaming ecosystem are able to benefit from this incredible potential.
