Near, an open-source, climate-neutral blockchain company, announced a strategic alliance with WEMADE, a leading blockchain gaming company, to support the development of blockchain applications in South Korea and beyond.

The partnership aims to increase mutual brand awareness, invest in cross-chain research, host community events, and explore potential business opportunities for web3.

Marieke Flament, CEO of the Near Foundation, is excited about the collaboration’s potential to accelerate cutting-edge Web3 solutions for gamers and developers.

WEMADE, a leading game development company based in South Korea, is driving the gaming industry’s transition to blockchain technology.

Its subsidiary, WEMIX, is creating a mega ecosystem for various user-friendly Web3 services and applications.

The partnership aims to make it easier, faster, and more cost-effective for developers to integrate off-chain applications and startups.

South Korea, known for setting trends and leading technological research, is ranked among the top 10 nations in the Global Innovation Index.

The country has seen consistent investment in the web3 blockchain gaming industry, with over $500 million invested between October and November last year.

Near’s recently released Blockchain Operating System (BOS) aims to facilitate the adoption of the mainstream South Korean gaming industry.

This announcement follows Near’s earlier collaboration with Kakao Games’ METABORA, marking its second major brand partnership in South Korea.
