Ubisoft Joins Aleph.im Decentralized Network As Core Channel Node Operator

Follows announcement of Aleph.im’s participation in Ubisoft Entrepreneurs Lab

Paris, July 08, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Aleph.im, a cross-blockchain decentralized storage and computing network, announced today that Ubisoft,  a leading creator, publisher and distributor of interactive entertainment and services, is running a core channel node on aleph.im, furthering the development of the decentralized network.

Many of today’s decentralized applications and cryptocurrency protocols still run on partially centralized components in their infrastructure, and nearly 70% of Ethereum nodes run on cloud services. Aleph.im aims to solve this problem by providing decentralized databases, computation, and a decentralized identification (DID) framework that allows DApps and protocols to shed centralized parts of their stack. Core channel nodes are used to power the aleph.im network.

Entertainment and video game leader, Ubisoft, is running a core channel node, UbiStrat Lab, that  validates and manages the aleph.im network. Adding this node further expands aleph.im’s capacity and propels the network to higher levels of decentralization.

“Our primary mission is to make decentralized cloud services a reality,” said Jonathan Schemoul, aleph.im Founder and CEO. “It is really encouraging to have such a successful business getting behind our vision of creating the next generation of cloud services that will be open-source, unstoppable and trustless.”

“We’re happy to be joining the Aleph.im ecosystem as Core Channel Node operator” explains Didier Genevois, Blockchain Tech Director at Ubisoft. “At Ubisoft, we believe that Blockchain holds a key to the future of the videogame industry, bringing new possibilities for players and developers alike. Beyond NFTs themselves, the decentralized storage of their metadata appears to us as a determining factor in fulfilling the whole promise of true ownership. In this perspective, the exploration of the services offered by the Aleph.im decentralized network is particularly promising.”

Ubisoft has been exploring blockchain technology through its Entrepreneurs Lab program and its Strategic Innovation Lab, whose mission is to anticipate the future and to help Ubisoft get ready for it by exploring the opportunities offered by innovative technologies. Aleph.im will participate in this year’s Entrepreneurs Lab alongside 10 other startups. Led by Ubisoft Strategic Innovation Lab, this program will give aleph.im the unique opportunity to enhance their decentralized ecosystem under the counsel of Ubisoft experts. This sixth season of the program focuses on the collaboration with entrepreneurs in the blockchain and positive entertainment spaces to drive the future of entertainment.
