Binance Launchpad, the token launch platform for blockchain projects from popular cryptocurrency exchange Binance, today has announced support for its seventh project of the year and the first in the gaming industry, WINk.
WINk is a trustless, permissionless and high-performance gaming platform based on the TRON blockchain. The WINk token sale will follow a lottery format and begin on July 24, 2019, at 00:00 UTC.
WINk aims to become a premier blockchain gaming platform for users to play, socialize, and stake across multiple blockchain ecosystems. WINk’s previous incarnation, TRONbet, was the first DApp launched on the TRON network and since has become the leading gaming application in terms of active users and transaction volume across all major blockchains.
The WINk platform hosts a number games on the blockchain, such as Poker, Dice, and Slots, which have engaged a community of over 16,000 players. It also provides a set of tools and other resources for developers that allows them to seamlessly create unique gaming dApps. WINk has also developed its own scaling solutions that have been implemented in its games, allowing them to eliminate transaction costs completely.
“The gaming industry has been at the forefront of emerging technologies and has demonstrated a strong interest and demand of utilizing cryptocurrency and decentralized platforms,” said Binance CEO and Founder, CZ (Changpeng Zhao). “Compared to centralized marketplaces, decentralized gaming platforms provide a wide range of tangible benefits from allowing users to keep complete custody of their funds, to fairness and security ensured by auditable smart contracts. We hope that hosting WINk on Binance Launchpad will showcase the advantages of blockchain-based gaming and help advance this space for others.”
“We truly believe that blockchain technologies can revolutionize the gaming industry and provide excellent user experience,” said Ken Park, Head of WINk. “We are looking forward to carrying out our commitment to deliver a superior product that benefits the gaming community and provides additional cryptocurrency utility with the support of Binance Launchpad.”
WINk also plans to give back to the broader community through charitable events such as the Binance Charity Poker Tournament.
