Bringing Games to the Blockchain | What is ITAM?



This article was published on August 7, 2021. Please keep in mind that some of the data in this article may be outdated as of today.

ITAM is a company that aims to innovate the gaming ecosystem by putting achievements, in-game items, and digital assets on the blockchain. The company uses ITAM Middleware to convert regular games into blockchain-enabled games.

With so much public interest in the NFT space, ITAM announced that they will expand their market reach and “…become a cross-chain marketplace for all types of NFTs, with the ITAM token being our bridge between various chains.” It’s an exciting time for the team! Making this vision reality, they have secured partnerships with some of the major players in the BSC ecosystem: PancakeSwap, CafeSwap, Alpaca Finance and LaunchZone.

These partnerships have subsequently promoted publicity and accessibility to their utility token ITAM, which is used for purchases in-game and on the ITAM-Store and Marketplace.
