NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--May 14, 2019--

BLOCKCHAIN WEEK - At blockchain conference Consensus 2019, Silicon Valley-based public blockchain platform provider ThunderCore announced it has delivered on Founder & CEO Chris Wang’s vision of building the fastest growing blockchain gaming platform and launched its much anticipated Mainnet. Additionally, ThunderCore is delivering platform-based developer services combined with integrated user acquisition capabilities to enable game developers to maximize user acquisition efforts. Chris Wang previously founded gaming company Playdom which acquired over 100 Million users and reported a Daily Average User (DAUs) count in excess of 20 Million users. Playdom was acquired by Disney for $563M. ThunderCore will exhibit at Consensus 2019 in New York City. The event also features a presentation session on blockchain gaming presented by Chris Wang.

ThunderCore’s CEO has been very bullish on the growth of blockchain and explains ThunderCore’s approach as follows, “To date, the overall adoption of blockchain based games has been very low.” He goes on to add, “Gaming DApps on all blockchains combined are currently at less than 12k DAUs. With our value-added capabilities, ThunderCore is on the path to exceeding 50k DAUs, all within 10 weeks from our Mainnet launch. Linking user acquisition with a high performance blockchain is catching the attention of Dapp developers, who are now eager to leverage a growing user pre-disposed to trying gaming applications.”

Chris, received his PhD at age 22 from Carnegie Mellon University prior to founding Playdom. He was joined by ThunderCore co-founder Dr. Elaine Shi, who also earned a PhD from Carnegie Mellon and is an expert in fast consensus models for blockchain. Elaine is an Associate Professor at Cornell University. Elaine is widely credited with authoring the first academic paper on the application of blockchain to cryptocurrency. According to Elaine, “Our sophistication comes from simplicity of our consensus model that allows us to deliver higher throughputs and enable new business models.”

To accompany its Mainnet launch, ThunderCore has released an enhanced product roadmap showing its genesis and going out almost two years. The level of investment in research, blockchain development and developer and user enhancements is evident from the multi-faceted roadmap contained in its newly launched website for the project.

Devised as a Proof of Stake (PoS) project, ThunderCore has announced full node open source capabilities as well as committee run nodes based on an open selection process that will deliver transparency while maintaining integrity and security of operations. Additional capabilities being announced by ThunderCore are a Staking Pool Service, which allows token holder to earn rewards, and support for cross-chain assets. ThunderCore is inviting people to stop by Booth 330 in the exhibits area during Consensus 2019, being held May 13-15, 2019 in New York City. ( Additional information in our Consensus blog: ).

While ThunderCore’s capabilities lend themselves well to gaming, they are also key to enhancing the usability of applications in other verticals such as financial payments, supply chain and security. Several examples of these types of DApps are available.
