BNB Chain has partnered with P12 and Quest to launch “P12 Arcana,” a month-long Web3 gaming event at Dota’s headline gaming event dubbed The International 2022, per a press release on October 12, 2022.
BNB Chain, P12 & Quest to Launch P12 Arcana
BNB Chain and the Web3 gaming ecosystems, Project Twelve and Quest3, will host P12 Arcana, a Web3 gaming event scheduled to run from October 1 – November 1, 2022, at the 11th edition of The International 2022. The event aims to bridge Web2 and Web3 gaming sectors while providing unique virtual experiences.
The International 2022 is one of the most significant e-sports events in terms of prize money and sets new records every year. It is the culmination of the Dota 2 esports calendar, with only the best Dota 2 teams at the event.
According to BNB Chain, P12 Arcana offers players many fun and exciting activities, including lotteries, voting contests, games, and substantial rewards for winners. There will also be prizes for participants across different categories.
BNB Chain’s Investment Director, Gwendolyn Regina, said:
“BNB Chain community provides an amazing sandbox for GameFi builders to develop scalable dApps on BNB Chain. We have a community of over 2 million gamers, and this is another great opportunity to give an immersive experience to the players. P12 Arcana will be the largest Web3 gaming carnival in 2022, as well as yet another great community event bridging and uniting old-school gamers and Web3 players in the same gaming world that we all share and adore.”
Bridging the Gaming & Web3 Gap
The P12 Arcana event is billed to be “the ultimate experience” for a global audience of gamers, e-sport fans, Web3 enthusiasts, and beyond.
Regarding the event, Project Twelve Founder, Boyang, explains:
“P12 has been on the mission to remake and reimagine Web3 gaming. We are well aware of the current split between gamers and Web3 users. P12 Arcana will be the biggest Web3 gaming carnival in 2022 and yet another solid step by P12 to bridge and unite old-time gamers and Web3 players into the same gaming worlds that we share and love.”
Since the event’s prelaunch in September 2022, there has been a massive wave of excitement and enthusiasm among the communities of the involved projects. This euphoria is in part due to the potential of P12 Arcana to provide players with a new dimension to Web2 and Web3 gaming experience.
BNB Chain is unarguably one of Web3’s biggest supporters. Last week, the blockchain protocol announced that it would be one of the sponsors of the annual HackTX 2022 hackathon event at the University of Texas, Austin. HackTX is one of the biggest hackathons held in Universities featuring students across various disciplines to come together and develop creative tech solutions.
The proof-of-stake blockchain is currently tackling a security breach it suffered last week. BNB Chain announced the launch of a hardfork upgrade named Moran to its network protocol to fix a major bug that cost the ecosystem $100 million on October 6, 2022.
