Ankr, the established leader in Decentralized Web3 infrastructure and the largest node provider for both Binance and Polygon, announces the much-anticipated launch of a new blockchain gaming Software Development Kit (SDK) – referred to as the perfect gaming recipe – that enables game studios to provide complete Web3 and crypto capabilities in their respective games. Ankr’s new Web3 Gaming SDK gives game developers everything they need to create an amazing Web3 game experience, from best-in-class Web3 infrastructure to NFTs, marketplaces, and multi-chain wallet integrations.
Launching their Unity Game Engine integrations today, the new Ankr SDK assists game studios by more easily connecting their games to Web3 and allowing any digital file to be minted into an NFT. Integration with current game development environments helps to provide popular features needed to take gaming to the next level with full blockchain, crypto, and Web3 capabilities.

Greg Gopman, Ankr’s Chief Marketing and Business Development Officer stated, “Gaming studios are looking for a way to jump into web3 without having to worry about security, infrastructure, and the complexity of doing it on their own. Ankr now offers an industry-leading solution to provide them with the infrastructure and monetization strategies they’ve been looking for to experiment with Web3 without having to leave the game development environments they’re used to.”
An estimated 10% of Web3 projects rely on Ankr’s enterprise-grade global node infrastructure now, a number they aim to increase as the GameFi space heats up and more gaming studios look to integrate with Web3. Along with NFT’s, Game Developers can build Monetization strategies around launching a token connected to a network of validators and nodes powering the transactions in their game, a revenue model that is just starting to take shape this year with studios like Gala Games. Ankr looks to keep providing additional features for the future of GameFi, evolving their gaming SDK package as per the industry needs to come.
Gopman also states that “Ankr is deeply committed to building the industry-leading features and the infrastructure truly needed for developers to succeed. We are making it cheaper, easier, and more accessible for everyone to win with Web 3.”
