SKALE Network

Bringing Enhanced Transparency and Zero Gas Fees to World’s Most Popular Game

Chess has long been revered as a game of strategy and intellect, captivating millions around the globe through its rich history and complexity. As one of the world's oldest and most popular board games, its timeless appeal has transcended generations, with enthusiasts ranging from casual players to world-renowned grandmasters. In today's digital age, chess continues to thrive, with players competing across various online platforms, showcasing the game's enduring popularity. Amidst this digital renaissance, the question arises: how can blockchain technology enhance the social and competitive aspects of chess, making it more accessible, transparent, and trustworthy for players worldwide? SKALE, the world’s fastest blockchain network, is proud to announce that it is partnering with Chess3 to redefine the online chess experience through the power of blockchain technology.

Chess3 is designed to offer a trustless environment where players can confidently wager against one another. This innovative approach leverages blockchain's inherent transparency and security to foster trust among competitors, ensuring that every move and outcome is verifiable and tamper-proof.

Chess3 stands out as an on-chain platform that allows players to engage in wagering using cryptocurrencies in a secure and transparent manner. The platform's commitment to pushing game data both on-chain and off-chain guarantees that all move histories are immutable and transparent, addressing common concerns about fairness and cheating in online play. With ambitious plans to integrate an on-chain ELO ranking system, introduce a unique currency, and launch eSports tournaments, Chess3 aims to transform chess into a spectator sport, enabling fans to bet on high-profile matches and engage with the game in entirely new ways.

The decision to build on the SKALE Network was driven by several key factors, including zero gas fees, high scalability, and a growing user base. These features align perfectly with Chess3's vision of creating a seamless and accessible gaming experience, free from the barriers often associated with blockchain transactions. SKALE's reputation as a leading chain for on-chain gaming further solidified its position as the ideal platform for Chess3, offering the technical foundation necessary to support the project's innovative features and ambitious growth plans.

SKALE's emergence as a top-utilized blockchain, as noted by CoinGecko, underscores its appeal to projects like Chess3 that demand high performance and scalability. The network's ability to facilitate gasless transactions and instant finality makes it an attractive choice for developers looking to create user-friendly blockchain applications. As SKALE continues to attract diverse projects, its role in driving the adoption of blockchain technology across various industries becomes increasingly evident.

Daniel Tauhore, CEO and Co-Founder of Chess3, encapsulates the project's ethos, stating, "It's our mission to build a truly incredible product that will aim to onboard the next million users into web3. With Skale and Chess3 sharing a combined philosophy on 'Invisible Web3', it was a no-brainer to launch on Skale." This partnership between Chess3 and SKALE is not just about enhancing the online chess experience; it's about pioneering a new era of digital gaming where accessibility, transparency, and trust are paramount.
