Double, the developer of popular blockchain game My Crypto Heroes, announced on March 25 that it will use the Immutable X platform to mint and trade nonfungible tokens, or NFTs, across all its games.

Immutable X is a layer-two solution for the Ethereum blockchain, created by Immutable — the team behind the Gods Unchained trading card game. It aims to promote NFT adoption by reducing gas fees and allowing for more dynamic game mechanics.

The alpha release will launch this month for Gods Unchained, opening up to double and several other developers, including SuperfarmDAO, Illuvium and Mintable, shortly thereafter.

The platform touts several benefits designed especially for the NFT market, including instant trading confirmations, capacity for over 9,000 transactions per second and zero gas fees.

It does this using a system of batched zero-knowledge proofs from Starkware, meaning that the platform remains fully decentralized and secured by the Ethereum network. This also means that NFTs can be traded via any Ethereum-based marketplace.
