Mirror World Launches Gaming Rollup Chain on Solana

Mirror World, a web3 application development platform, is introducing the first gaming rollup on Solana. The platform will utilize Solana’s new computation engine known as “Sonic” to allow developers to deploy game engines or virtual machines of their choosing on Solana using their software development kit (SDK). This will also enable in-app transactions to be powered by the Solana Virtual Machine (SVM). Mirror World’s core technology, HyperGrid, developed for the Sonic SVM, will enable gaming platforms to create decentralized exchange (DEX) aggregators for Solana in-game interactions and establish their own on-ramp.

The Mirror World SDK has already been implemented in 50 gaming clients as initial distribution nodes. Three games in particular, Mahjong Meta, Matr1x Fire, and Seraph/ActozSoft, have seen significant success after incorporating the Mirror World SDK, raising over $30 million in their series rounds and generating more than 200,000 traffic and transaction engagements during their gaming sessions.

Mirror World emphasizes that Sonic provides essential tools for payment and settlement infrastructure, as well as user engagement tools necessary for building successful Web3 games. Chris Zhu, CEO of Mirror World, states that the company has collaborated with numerous games in the Web3 ecosystem to enhance their monetization and listing. Zhu further explains that Sonic’s vision is to expand the existing Solana Gaming Ecosystem and process millions of requests per second per game, settling them back onto Solana L1.

Another noteworthy product from Mirror World is the Smart Marketplace SDK, which allows developers to deploy a nonfungible token marketplace within their decentralized applications for a monthly fee of $299. The marketplace has a limit of $1 million in monthly transaction volume.

While Solana has experienced significant growth in the past year, becoming a top five blockchain by market cap with an 824% gain, gaming activities on the platform continue to lag behind Ethereum. The most popular game on Solana, MomoAI, has only 80,680 unique active wallets. Despite this, Solana has gained traction in other areas. In February, the platform achieved an all-time high of $5 billion in sales of nonfungible tokens.
