In-Depth – Deep Dive on the Partnership
Ahead of GDC, Edgegap’s server orchestration platform tailored for multiplayer games is now accessible to game developers utilizing ZEBEDEE’s payments platform. This latest partnership will join the vision of the two companies toward a unified and global marketplace accessible to all game makers and players.
ZEBEDEE’s fully programmable payments platform allows developers to send, receive and pay with Bitcoin in and outside their game, with transactions as small as $0.0002. The technology enables innovative payment-based mechanics, such as real-time micro-transactions based on actions the player takes in the game, with no fees and instant settlement. The nature of these transactions requires seamless connectivity with minimal latency and lag, making Edgegap’s flexible server orchestration a powerful proposition for developers and gamers alike.
Edgegap’s ever-expanding distributed cloud network with 450+ locations worldwide can handle any traffic volume through automation and rapid-scaling orchestration. Its proximity hosting technology deploys game instances in the optimal location to deliver near-zero latency regardless of players’ platform, location or internet access type. It is supported by the ultimate peace of mind – an industry best 99.9% availability.
“We’re thrilled to collaborate with ZEBEDEE to continue our mission to democratize access to distributed server orchestration. We hope this partnership will empower developers to confidently deploy their games worldwide with near-zero latency for a flawless multiplayer experience,” said Mathieu Duperre, CEO of Edgegap. “ZEBEDEE is proud to add Edgegap as part of its ecosystem of tools and products to give our developer partners on-demand access to premium multiplayer server infrastructure that can natively incorporate our own payments capabilities,” says Ben Cousens, Chief Strategy Officer at ZEBEDEE.
This marks the beginning of an ambitious partnership for the two companies, who detected a natural fit in their offerings and are committed to building innovative solutions targeting both game makers and gamers. As gaming becomes more social and interaction-driven, flexible and instant global server infrastructure and flexible and global payments technology should come hand in hand. The new partnership between Edgegap and ZEBEDEE places both companies at the forefront of this innovation.
