Blockmason’s Link is a new blockchain infrastructure-as-a-service that allows blockchain-based game developers to use programmatic blockchains like MagnaChain in their applications without requiring any blockchain experience. With Link, developers can create games that interact with smart contracts and blockchains like any other web or mobile API.
There are no cryptocurrencies to acquire, browser plugins to install or servers to maintain or monitor. A developer simply adds their smart contracts to Link and uses the resulting APIs in their game or app. At the heart of Link is BLINK, the utility token which provides Link users with API transaction capacity.
MagnaChain is a public blockchain platform built by game developers, for game developers. MagnaChain aims to usher in the mass adoption of gaming on the blockchain with streamlined development tools and rapid transaction times, along with the sense of community and collaboration that the blockchain provides.
