Decentralized Futures: WILDCARD

Revolutionizing Gaming with Multichain Asset Integration in the Polkadot Ecosystem

“Experience the future of gaming with WILDCARD: Instant, secure, and gasless in-game asset management, powered by Trusted Execution Environments (TEEs) — where your gaming achievements meet unparalleled privacy and flexibility, bridging Polkadot and Ethereum like never before!”

A short pitch

WILDCARD is an advanced, trustless multi-chain L2 and revolutionizes the gaming and web3 landscapes with its gasless and near-instant non-custodial marketplace capabilities, offering secure asset minting, transfers, and trades in real time. Being multi-chain, it offers secure token bridging and takes care of the challenges that come along with targeting multiple blockchains. It empowers creators to effortlessly launch chain-independent fungible and non-fungible collections, games, or web3 experiences. WILDCARD’s seamless and secure transactions simplify the integration of traditional gaming assets into the blockchain. We integrate the platform with the Polkadot SDK for Unity, providing easy access to our services for creators across various parachains. WILDCARD currently integrates with parachains and Ethereum.

“With WILDCARD, we - Ajuna Network and PolyCrypt - underscore our long partnership and commitment to create a versatile, chain-agnostic digital asset market, one that extends into the decentralized future of gaming, beyond traditional blockchain frameworks.”

Integration with Substrate and the Polkadot Ecosystem

WILDCARD’s integration into the Polkadot ecosystem, facilitated through the ‘WILDCARD Pallet,’ enables the easy deposit and withdrawal of Polkadot assets, not just to Polkadot parachains but to all chains WILDCARD is connected with. A key element of our strategy is the platform’s initial integration with Polkadot and Ethereum, which allows all parachains to connect with WILDCARD. This integration not only enhances the interoperability between Polkadot and Ethereum but also broadens the utility of Polkadot, Kusama, and other Substrate-based chains. Additionally, it can use XCM to facilitate the Service for the whole Ecosystem, over one single Parachain.

Our Team’s Motivation

Our team is dedicated to overcoming the ecosystem lock-in of NFTs and fungible assets, fostering a more connected blockchain environment, and making blockchain developer- and user-friendly. By integrating with the Polkadot SDK for Unity and supporting projects on platforms like Tanssi, WILDCARD seeks to unlock the full potential of blockchain technology. Our initial focus on bridging Polkadot and Ethereum promotes asset accessibility and encourages the exploration of blockchain capabilities across different ecosystems. WILDCARD’s support for both fungible and non-fungible assets within the Polkadot ecosystem, in alignment with the Asset & NFT pallets, positions it as a pivotal tool for digital asset utility and interoperability. WILDCARD aims to facilitate the secure and easy integration of blockchains and TEE-based third-party services, creating a fused ecosystem of blockchains and compute- or data-intensive real-time services, such as games. We are also in a position to allow the integration of non-TEE-based third-party services into WILDCARD for use cases that have lower security requirements and/or attain the users’ trust through some other means (such as a website). This approach effectively reduces the entry barrier to WILDCARD and facilitates the integration of traditional web2 services, particularly pre-existing games, with the WILDCARD ecosystem.
