Creators of CryptoKitties Roll Out Platform for Developers
Dapper Labs, developer of CryptoKitties, announced the rollout of Flow Playground, an interactive platform that facilitates programmers to trial with building apps on the company’s Flow blockchain.
Developers are able to code and run smart contracts, and will be able to study Cadence, which is Dapper Labs’ “new resource-oriented programming language.”
The language has been structured to ease programming of tokenized assets and consists of features from Swift and Rust.
Flow Playground also enables users develop non-fungible tokens, create fungible tokens and establish a marketplace. Dieter Shirley, the CTO of Dapper Labs, revealed that “a lot of the teams that are active in the [non-fungible token] space” have shown enthusiasm in piloting the platform.
Shirley further stated that the Flow blockchain was created to remove the “pain of implementing smart contracts” using other protocols.
At the time of launch in September 2019, the Flow blockchain was referred by Dapper Labs as a “developer-friendly blockchain built to support entire ecosystems of apps, games, and the digital assets that power them.”
After rolling out Flow, Dapper Labs has signed multiple collaborations with top entertainment firms to develop transactable blockchain powered goods.
In the same period, Warner Music disclosed that its blockchain developer team would cooperate with Dapper Labs to develop tokenized assets and host on its public chain.
On February 26, 2020, Dapper Labs stated that it would partner with UFC to unveil blockchain powered assets associating a blockchain game for followers of mixed martial arts.
The game will permit fans to hold “tokenized representations of their favorite fighters,” which can be trained for moving to next higher stage. Shirley believes that the game will result in the creation of a thriving ecosystem including the establishment of secondary trading markets for the tokens.
