Cocos-BCX officially launches its testnet to over 1.3 million developers

Out of all the engines leveraged for game development in Asia, Cocos is one of the most widely applied.

According to market share, it is the second most used throughout the continent. But with the announcement that Cocos-BCX has officially launched its testnet, it’s likely to hit number one soon.

The platform has earned a reputation as a highly reliable engine for publishers like Zynga and Big Fish Games. So with trust rightfully earned by its Coco2d-x platform, it is only a matter of when for its Blockchain Expedition (BCX) to do the same.

What sets Cocos-BCX apart

Cocos-BCX platform intends to give developers access to an open system for game development, while being fully supportive of multiple blockchains.

Cocos has previously secured strategic partnerships with Ontology, Zilliqa, Tron and NEO. Cocos has its eyes on further partnerships with Loom, Nebulas and Cell Evolution.

What gives Cocos a further edge is an intrinsic interoperability made possible by its own Non-Homogenous Asset Standard – NHAS-1808.

The fact that its testnet will launch alongside three new games developed by partnered studios. These include Orion Shooting, Tyche by Orion Games, and Happy Fruit by Fame Game.
