Matic Network (MATIC), a blockchain scalability platform which provides instant transactions powered by PoS side chains, unveiled over the weekend that it will be sponsoring the first-ever Blockchain Stage at E3 this year.

The event starts at 5:00 PM (PDT) on June 10 and includes the following speakers:

  • Randy Saaf, MLB Champions
  • James Ferguson, Gods Unchained
  • Caterina Zhang, Cocos-BCX
  • Ivan Soto, Moonpay
  • Justin Wu, Coinstate
  • “Micky”, Dapper Labs / Crypto Kitties
  • Greg Zinone, Klout Blockchain
  • Johnson Jeng, Annu Audio
  • Fred Krueger, EOS Lynx

Matic Network is perhaps best-known for its recent initial exchange offering (IEO) on the Binance Launchpad. The altcoin, which is currently valued around $55 million, is currently one of the more-heavily traded cryptocurrencies on the market with volume in the tens of millions.

The move to sponsor the event does not come as a major surprise, as Matic has gaming listed as one of the project’s core focuses.

“Matic can help increase the efficiency of performing transactions of gaming networks over a blockchain,” reads Matic’s website. “Transactions such as buying or selling in-game currencies and buying and digital assets can be significantly sped up.”
