Brace yourselves, gamers and blockchain enthusiasts, because the ultimate dream team that web3 infrastructure will witness have just joined forces! We are thrilled to announce a collaboration with Tashi Gaming, the innovator of next-generation multiplayer, serverless game development. Together, we are set to ignite a gaming revolution that will transform the game development landscape like never before.

Meet Tashi — Where Distributed Ledger Technology (DLT) Fuels Game Development

Tashi (www.tashi.gg) is demonstrating how DLT can be used to dramatically reduce server costs and completely eliminate certain categories of cheating in real-time multiplayer gaming. Tashi has developed proprietary technology that enables truly serverless, leaderless P2P multiplayer game backends.

Tashi’s pioneering consensus engine (“TCE”) revolutionizes the game backend, shifting from a centralized to a distributed architecture where every player acts as a server, thereby distributing the computation and storage of the game state across the network. What truly sets Tashi apart is that it offers the security of a dedicated game server, the cost and infrastructure simplicity of a P2P server, and fairness that neither provides. TCE boasts unmatched performance and security, surpassing existing consensus mechanisms, achieving over 3 million game event and state change messages per second with a median finality latency of 80ms.

To simplify game development and migration, Tashi’s engineers have created the Unity Tashi Network Transport (“Unity TNT”), a network transport plugin for the Unity game engine. This seamless plugin empowers developers to build and transition multiplayer games effortlessly to Tashi’s backend.

Elevating Game Development with NEST® — The Blockchain Infrastructure Wizards

As the vanguards of blockchain infrastructure, we bring our expertise to this transformative partnership. With the mission to democratize Web3 and blockchain technology, we provide our robust blockchain infrastructure to bolster Tashi’s initiatives.

Starting with SDK wallet and bulk minting capabilities for NFTs and ERC-20 tokens, NEST® is set to unlock the full potential of our institutional-grade NFT minting and management platform. And that’s just the beginning. With NEST®, the sky’s the limit.

A New Chapter in Game Development

The primary struggle with Web3 technology for developers has been scalability. Due to the nature of blockchain as developers try to scale up transaction times often become slower and fees become higher since every single transaction must be processed and verified before assimilating into the blockchain.

Tashi is able to solve this issue using a unique architecture in their consensus algorithm. With throughput over 3 million TPS and consensus time as low as 8 ms, Tashi can support a multitude of game types including: Real-time strategy (RTS), Multiplayer online battle arena (MOBA), Role-playing (RPG, ARPG), Puzzlers and party games and Action-adventure games.

As part of this partnership, Tashi will support running all the game state data with objective finality, while different parts of the data, such as digital assets will be pushed on chain via NEST’s platform . This ability to support large scale games will allow game studio partners and others to be able to shift fully into the Web3 world.

With this visionary partnership, NEST® and Tashi Gaming are scripting a new chapter in the realm of game development. This fusion will propel the gaming industry forward and set the stage for a brighter future of game development.

About NEST®

NEST® is the next-gen blockchain infrastructure that sets the global standard for confidential, distributed identity and cross-chain asset control. We believe that every person should have the power to set confidential control to their data and assets with immutable trust. Our self-sovereign distributed identity (SSDID) protocol allows individuals to make personal decisions. From dynamic NFTs, and minting to Omni-network access, NEST® makes Web3 accessible.
