Mythical Games Announces Launch of New Marketplace and Acquisition of DMarket

Share

Mythical Games, the next-generation gaming technology studio, has launched Mythical Marketplace 2.0 following the acquisition of marketplace tech start-up DMarket, as part of its continued commitment to innovation in gaming. The new marketplace is built on Mythical’s new layer 1 EVM blockchain and powered by the Mythos native ecosystem token, MYTH. The acquisition is a significant milestone for Mythical Games, with DMarket’s tech facilitating the most advanced trading platform for digital assets. It makes Mythical the world’s second-largest processor of digital assets on a distributed ledger after the Ethereum mainnet, as of December.

Mythical’s Marketplace 2.0 has fully integrated DMarket’s technology to feature principles of its blended payment gateway, featuring a powerful AML and anti-fraud protection system built on more than a decade of industry experience. Combined with Mythical’s expertise in gaming and digital assets, Marketplace 2.0 provides a frictionless user experience that enables peer-to-peer transactions and empowerment for gamers looking to participate in the play-and-own gaming economies of the future. The Mythical Chain has been live for six weeks, processing over 2 million transactions.

“We founded Mythical Games in 2018 with the idea of ushering in both the next generation of gaming and the next generation of gamers. Half a decade later, we’re continuing to do just that. Mythical’s Marketplace 2.0 was designed to not only enhance our platform but, more importantly, improve the player experience and set the standard for the future of gaming,” said John Linden, co-founder and CEO, Mythical Games. “All too often, developers tout features as ‘seamless’ and ‘integrated’ when discussing gaming or metaverse projects. In reality, these solutions are still very complicated and not made for gamers. But with these monumental steps forward, Mythical will provide users with an experience that delivers on both.”

Marketplace 2.0 will support NFL Rivals and Nitro Nation World Tour assets, with plans to expand to all Mythical titles on the Mythical Chain. Assets on the Mythical Chain will be entirely governed by smart contracts with both ownership and commerce logic enforced on a secure distributed digital ledger.

“The new horizons of the gaming space have always been the main focus for DMarket. We’re excited to become a part of Mythical Games' work to reduce barriers to entry for innovative game developers and thriving new economies,” said Vlad Panchenko, co-founder and CEO of DMarket. “We share a vision of how the industry will evolve and how we all can contribute and bring more fun to the gaming community worldwide.”

DMarket’s office in Kyiv, Ukraine, becomes part of Mythical East, with its headquarters in Lisbon, Portugal. Its co-founders, Vlad Panchenko and Tamara Slanova, will become part of Mythical’s Executive leadership team, with a particular focus on building the best and easiest marketplace technology for the gaming industry.

DMarket has also adopted the Mythical Chain for its existing marketplace, which will continue to operate outside of the Mythical Marketplace. DMarket.com will retain the familiar experience with purchases in USD in the web experience; however, all trades are recorded on the Mythical Chain to provide full transparency to the community.

Ipsen Receives CHMP Negative Opinion for Palovarotene as a Treatment for Fibrodysplasia Ossificans Progressiva in E.U.27.1.2023 07:00:00 CET | Press release

Regulatory News: Ipsen (Euronext: IPN; ADR: IPSEY) announced today that the Committee for Medicinal Products for Human Use (CHMP) of the European Medicines Agency (EMA) has recommended not to grant marketing authorization for investigational palovarotene as a treatment for the ultra-rare bone disease, fibrodysplasia ossificans progressiva (FOP). In the E.U. there are currently only symptomatic treatments for FOP, which do not reduce the formation of extra-skeletal bone in patients with the condition. Ipsen will be requesting a re-examination of the CHMP opinion, based on scientific data available from the existing palovarotene clinical trial program. FOP causes permanent and continuous new bone formation in soft and connective tissues, like muscles, tendons and ligaments, a process known as heterotopic ossification (HO).1 Once formed, it is irreversible.1 The average age of diagnosis is 5 years old2 and ultimately FOP shortens the median life expectancy to 56 years as untimely death is
