Amasa, a micro income streaming and and DeFi aggregation platform, has joined forces with Polygon Studios. The teams are hoping to accelerate the adoption of play-to-earn gaming on Polygon.

Backed by Animoca Brands and Polygon founder Sandeep Nailwal, Amasa’s flagship product allows DeFi users to earn micro income streams from various sources and combine them into a single account.

The project is now partnering with Polygon Studios, a division at Polygon that provides support and infrastructure for blockchain game builders. In a Friday press release, Amasa announced that it would be integrating blockchain tools provided by Polygon Studios.

Blockchain-based play-to-earn games represent a new paradigm in the gaming sector. They typically reward players through native tokens or NFTs. Players can also lend and borrow these assets in a new crypto niche that’s become known as “GameFi.” Perhaps the most successful GameFi project to date has been the play-to-earn game Axie Infinity, which hit $1 billion in sales during the so-called “NFT summer.” As interest in NFTs, the Metaverse, and GameFi has grown, many projects like Amasa and Polygon Studios are looking to capitalize on the boom.

Amasa said it will focus on helping users realize the revenue and yield earning potential of play-to-earn games for the first time. Discussing the collaboration with Polygon Studios, Amasa founder and core contributor Will Birks said:

“We’re thrilled to be working with Polygon Studios on technical solutions toward our common goals of growing Web3 gaming and Metaverse ecosystems to the ultimate benefit of users globally.”

The Polygon Network, which acts as a low-cost Ethereum scaling solution, is well positioned to benefit from the rapidly expanding play-to-earn gaming market. The network saw huge growth this year when it welcomed a host of Ethereum-native DeFi protocols like Curve and Aave, while it also hosts many popular games including Arc8, ZED RUN, and Aavegotchi.
