The advent of digital technologies has brought tremendous opportunities for interactive entertainment (IE) platforms. In the last decade, many areas including, but not limited to, education, gaming, sports, streaming, broadcasting, cinema, augmented and virtual reality (AR/VR), and the metaverse (which can make use of all these components) have adopted new advancements and integrated with multiple technologies leading to bringing innovative products to market that delight and bring joy to their users.
The adoption of Web3 and cryptocurrencies has also opened up extraordinary possibilities for in-game finance, tokenization, NFTs, permissionless interactions, and security improvements. What seemed to be highly speculative and foreign a few years ago is now a more than $13 billion dollar industry (source), with highly-reputed investors as board members, venture capitalists, advisors, and partners in Web3-based projects. Web3 enables seamless transactions where the data is secured and transparent on blockchain networks. Many companies and financial institutions have recognized the power of blockchains and begun shifting efforts toward developing Web3 products, applications, and APIs.
Many interactive entertainment platforms have pursued blockchain and Web3 trends but the integration with such new concepts hasn’t been any easier, forming significant gaps between Web 2.0 (typically based around user generated content) and Web3 platforms. In Web3, security and product management happens differently. While most blockchains are highly secured through mechanisms such as Proof of Work or Proof of Stake and advanced consensus algorithms, the applications built on the networks need to be coded with all possible vulnerabilities in mind, or else hackers can easily exploit the application. Product management in Web3 often happens in real-time while building the product thanks to active community participation. Additionally, the UI for Web3 decentralized apps (dApps) differs from any traditional apps, making it confusing to someone new to the space.
To bridge all the gaps for developers specifically for these IE platforms, Elemental Computing, Inc. (ECI) is bringing to market an innovative and advanced platform - Elements.
Elements provides a comprehensive scope in both Web 2.0 and Web3 areas where programmers can deploy applications with just one click. The team behind Elements has decades of experience in gaming, tech innovation, and the relatively nascent blockchain field. They have built Elements as a sophisticated platform that can offer advanced programming tools, easy-to-use UI, faster deployment, built-in security measures, and a lot more than can be found on any other platform.
Most reputed game development platforms such as Heroic Labs Nakama and Moralis are either Web 2.0 or Web3 native respectively. But, Elements is a single platform that is capable of bridging both and providing seamless transition and operation. Elements understands the requirements of both worlds and hence not only bridges but also provides a wide range of tools, APIs, server integrations, and programming language support, among a wide range of other features.
The following features show how Elements stands out from other platforms:
Applications can be developed and tested on developers’ local machines. Elements then makes it easy to deploy applications or updates with just a single click, making them available to end users in no time!
More Than Just an SDK and API
Elements is more than just an SDK or an API. It is a whole enterprise-level platform with built-in features where developers, testing teams, designers, and other engineering teams can all work together in a seamless workflow to create their applications and ecosystem. Elements provides server-side scripting, local simulation tools, cloud integration, and internal and external server integrations, with informative visual workflow and advanced dashboards. Elements offers many Web3 features such as, but not limited to, custodial wallets, RPC wrappers, and minting tools for developers to directly integrate during the development process, with more features in the works.
Elements brings advanced and useful tools for developers to code any gaming or IE based product. Elements can integrate with multiple automation tools, full server-side scripting, and Unity support with code generation for quick integration. Elements gives you pre-built tools to implement common game features such as achievements, leaderboards, digital goods, inventory, missions, and a lot more.
Bridging Web 2.0 and Web3
While cloud computing has brought a revolution to server management, Web3 is expanding the advancement by providing real ownership and security. Elements keeps in mind the intricate features needed by Web 2.0 developers in order to use Web3 elements and provide all the necessary tools and documentation support to create a viable product. It can be a simple token-gated payment structure or a platform with heavy graphics demanding artwork for game producers - Elements has all the tools built in regardless of what you’re creating.
Elements is a serverless technology that allows programmers to run code without needing to spin up and deploy a new virtual machine or cloud instance. Serverless technology allows developers to build a modular architecture which is scalable, without worrying about maintaining a physical server or unnecessarily overpay cloud providers for unused bandwidth or idle time. Developers can code event-driven functions, eliminating the need for multithreading or handling HTTP requests. Elements’ serverless technology is being used by well-known clients and is able to perform 20x faster than AWS Lambda.
The key elements mentioned above are merely skimming the surface on the features that Elements is offering. With Elements, you will have unlimited possibilities for innovating and creating Web 2.0 and Web3 applications. Simply put, if there is an evolution chart for software development ecosystems for IE platforms, Elements stands at the top and envelops all others, filling in the gaps and merging both worlds.
