ZBD and Beamable Launch a Joint Starter Kit for Simple and Secure Bitcoin Integration for Game Developers

We are excited to work with ZBD to offer game developers a turnkey solution for Bitcoin integration into LiveOps tools! Check out the press release below and our ZBD marketplace page to grab the integration!

HOBOKEN, NJ – 14 NOVEMBER, 2023 ZBD, a leading fintech company that offers instant Bitcoin rewards for gamers and developers, has announced the launch of the ZBD Beamable starter kit for small development teams and hypercasual developers. This announcement is the latest phase of its partnership with Beamable, a development platform for online games, to simplify the secure integration of Bitcoin transactions into gaming. 

ZBD’s plug-and-play API is a cost-effective, global payment solution built on the Bitcoin Lightning Network that makes it easy for developers to incorporate real-time microtransactions, rewards, and payments into their games. With the ZBD Beamable starter kit, the integration of Beamable with ZBD’s API adds an additional layer of security by keeping sensitive information separate from the client-side of the game.

Christian Moss, ZBD Co-founder and Head of Gaming R&D, comments:

“Developing a secure game requires removing some of the logic from the game to the game server. Many developers, however, such as hypercasual mobile game developers, may not have the resources to develop and maintain a game server. Beamable provides these developers with server-like capabilities without the need for a server or any extra skills in addition to their existing game development skills. By integrating the ZBD API into a Beamable microservice, we’ve enabled developers to start building Bitcoin reward games in a secure way.” 

Jon Radoff, CEO of Beamable, comments:

“Our aim has always been to lower the barrier to entry for developers and make it more cost-effective for them to add complex and secure server-side Bitcoin features. Working with ZBD not only makes the implementation of in-game transactions easier than ever, but also adds an all-important extra layer of security.”

Announced in July 2023, the collaboration between the two companies heralded a significant step in the development of the next generation of Bitcoin-integrated gaming, removing the need for a server or systems operations team and enabling developers to integrate server-side features to games while ensuring superior security. 

The first Bitcoin-integrated mobile game to be built with the ZBD Beamable starter kit is due to be published in late November. 

The ZBD Beamable starter kit is available now on the Beamable marketplace: https://beamable.com/marketplace/zebedee-plug-and-play-api.
