Leading Experts Within Gaming World Start Forte Blockchain Firm, a Platform Devoted to Developers
A recent PRNewswire post published Thursday, February 21, 2019, revealed the launch of Forte, with a team made up of leaders who have worked on projects such as
“Kabam, GarageGames, Unity and Linden Lab.”
As per the claims made, the team is led by American video game executive and entrepreneur, Kevin Chou, who was known for founding Kabam. As he takes on the role of CEO and Co-Founder for Forte, he shares that the main objective behind Forte is to make,
“blockchain technology ready for the mass market and working closely with developers to create player-driven game economies that benefit both players and developers.”
In addition to mainstream attraction, the founders want to contribute in the creation of “decentralized products and solutions” and ensuring that game developer are made aware of blockchain technology and to further help them excel within the industry.
Alongside Chou is the Co-Founder and Veteran Game Tech Creator, Brett Seyler, who previously held respectable positions at both GarageGames and Unity, the press release reports. His aforementioned roles required him to focus primarily on the games’ platforms and how to help them succeed.
It’s no kidding that the project was considered as being filled with centuries of experience, as the team also houses other Co-Founders including Kent Wakeford and Weiwei Geng, who both happen to be “executives” at Kabam.
Seyler has since shared that Forte arose from needing to resolve a common challenge within the gaming world, which he reasons is possible with the help of blockchain technology. In particular, he said:
“Peer-to-peer economies have historically proven a tremendous and expensive challenge for game developers to support without negative player experiences […] The atomic unit of innovation inherent in blockchain substantially resolves these risks and unlocks vast potential for new types of game economies.”
