Blockchain App Store Aptoide Partners With Game Engine Creator Unity Technologies

Blockchain, News | November 19, 2018 By:

Android app store Aptoide has announced a distribution partnership with game engine creator Unity Technologies. With this partnership, Aptoide’s blockchain solution for in-app purchases (IAP) will be available to all Unity developers.

Aptoide is an alternative Android app store powered by AppCoins, a blockchain-based apps distribution protocol. It allows developers to advertise their apps to the users. From every advertising investment inside the Aptoide app store, 85% goes to the user. The user has to use those coins to buy items (in-app purchase) inside the apps and games, generating the return of the investment to the developers.

Unity Technologies is a video game development company which is best known for the development of Unity, a licensed game engine. Unity Technologies boasts a thriving community of millions of developers, including large publishers, indie studios, students, and hobbyists. Interactive content made with Unity reaches nearly 3 billion devices worldwide. The company’s real-time 3D (RT3D) development platform gives developers around the world the tools to create rich, interactive 2D, 3D, VR and AR experiences.

The partnership will allow Unity developers to choose the AppCoins protocol for their app and, with a few clicks, get a version of the game that will immediately be available for distribution in the Aptoide app store. The partnership aims to solve many of the current problems regarding in-app purchases, app promotion, and app approval.

“This partnership is a major step forward for Aptoide,” said Paulo Trezentos, CEO of Aptoide. “Partnering with Unity, one of the most recognized and credible technology brands in the world shows that we are taking the right steps forward. Additionally, the integration of the AppCoins protocol on the Unity platform helps us continue our pursuit of a more open and safe transaction process for the app market.”
