Gaming Leaders CARV And Double Join Forces To Reshape Web3 Experiences

13 Jun 2024

SANTA CLARA, California, June 13th, 2024/GamingWire/--CARV, the largest modular data layer for gaming and AI, today announced a strategic investment from double Inc., the trailblazing Japanese web3 gaming company and primary developers behind Oasys, the leading layer-1 blockchain purpose-built for gamers. The alliance brings together two powerhouses in the industry, promising to drive innovation and widespread adoption of web3 gaming.

The partnership with double marks another significant milestone in CARV's rapid growth trajectory. By consolidating its position alongside web2 and web3 gaming heavyweights like Animoca Brands, Neowiz’ IntellaX, and Netmarble's MARBLEX across Asia, CARV is solidifying its position as the preeminent gaming and AI data layer, ready to catalyze industry-wide innovation.

Through this investment and collaboration, double will become a node operation on CARV's decentralized data layer and explore CARV technology integration. double and Oasys will operate CARV nodes, which generate rewards in the form of staked tokens. These staked tokens are designed for games and gamers in general to participate in voting escrow governance on the CARV platform.

CARV's core users will receive airdrops of Oasys tokens. This symbiotic relationship offers real benefits to users on both platforms, propelling web3 gaming to new heights.

There are already clear synergies as both companies leverage blockchain technology as the key to digital sovereignty. double, the primary developer behind the Oasys blockchain, has strategy to ensure the continuity and preservation of in-game assets, memories, and records for players, which aligns with CARV ID – the groundbreaking solution uniting multiple identities under one NFT banner to provide greater interoperability between different platforms and services across the gaming universe, which recently broke 1M in adoption.

“This partnership aligns perfectly with our mission to decentralize gaming data and give power back to the players. By uniting our complementary solutions, double and CARV will empower developers to create innovative web3 experiences where users have genuine ownership and control,” said CARV co-founder Victor Yu.

“This collaboration represents a significant step forward in our shared vision for the future of gaming, where users maintain full ownership of their privacy and in-game assets. By becoming a node operator on CARV's decentralized data layer, double can actively contribute to our shared commitment to integrating decentralized data ownership through blockchain technology. Furthermore, we are thrilled to discover opportunities to utilize CARV’s technology in games planned for development on Oasys,” said Ryo Manzoku, CTO of double and Director in Tech at Oasys.

Double boasts an impressive track record, collaborating closely with industry giants like SEGA, Square Enix, and Bandai Namco. Likewise, CARV is a pioneering force in web3 gaming infrastructure with numerous milestones to its name, including raising over $45M from private investors and node sales, and registering 2.8M gamers.

Now, as the company is continuing its decentralization via nodes distribution, the collaboration with double will not only accelerate global expansion efforts but adoption of decentralized gaming experiences.
