Going forward, Immutable will scale up its operations, with an aim to more than double its workforce over the next 12 months, while continuing to revolutionize the sector with its highly efficient layer 2 solution, Immutable X. A protocol favoured by gaming developers for its fast transactions, low fees and ecologically sound principles.
The latest investment drive follows off the back of the recent announcement that Immutable X will power Gamestop’s forthcoming gaming NFT marketplace as the plucky company continues to make waves with its zero-knowledge proof roll-up tech. This will enable them to roll-up thousands of contracts on the Immutable side chain, and deploy them on Ethereum in a single transaction.
As a result of its savvy business moves, the native $IMX token skyrocketed in value, up 40% as of writing, sitting pretty at a rate of $1.58 per token.
