Application of Licensed Technology by ESE: Potential and Forward-Looking Initiatives

ESE's acquisition of Metapro's blockchain gaming technology holds the potential to enhance its gaming offerings and business model. ESE envisions several key applications of this technology:

  1. Development of an Enhanced SDK for Game Developers:
    1. ESE plans to utilize Metapro's Unity SDK and Blockchain Data API to develop an Enhanced Software Development Kit.

Our advanced blockchain gaming technology, which ESE has licensed, represents a significant step forward in the gaming industry. This collaboration is not just about providing technology; it's about fostering innovation and pushing the boundaries of what is possible in gaming. We believe that our tools and platforms have the potential to transform the gaming experience, and we are thrilled to see how ESE will potentially apply them to create new, engaging gaming experiences.
