The Polium One game console has a pad that looks more closely like what the PlayStation and the Xbox consoles offer but is tailored to feature Web3.0 games. 

As the Web3.0 gaming ecosystem is growing on a daily basis,  innovators are doing all they can to cater to the needs of the community and Polium One is one of the innovative answers to gamers’ core demand. Branded as a multichain gaming console for Web3.0, Polium One seeks to create a suitable environment for gaming enthusiasts beyond the mobile phones and PCs they are naturally accustomed to.

As detailed by the team behind the project, the Polium One gaming console will be developed by the community as feedback on the design and the features to add to the hardware will be sought from members of the ecosystem. As a multichain console, the Polium One will afford users to play games hosted on a wide variety of blockchain networks and protocols.

“Polium is building the world’s first multi-chain gaming console. The console will be built by the community. It will be capable of running games that are built on different blockchains. Users will be able to play games that are on ImmutableX, Solana, Ethereum, Polygon, BNB, EOS, Wax, and Harmony without needing to switch networks,” the Polium One team said in a blog post, “The console will be powerful enough to run high-performance games and will be easy to use for a traditional gamer who doesn’t understand Web 3. Not only will this solve a problem but it will also bring mass adoption into the Web 3 space.”

Core Features of the Polium One Console

As shared by the Polium One team, the gaming console is designed with a fingerprint scanner to provide an extra level of security when the console is powered on. The game has a multi-functional system and is integrated with its own wallet to enable users to make transactions when the console is operational.

The Polium One game console has a pad that looks more closely like what the PlayStation and the Xbox consoles offer but is tailored to feature Web3.0 games.

Through the console, players will be able to access Non-Fungible Token (NFT) marketplaces through which users can buy and trade non-game and in-game NFTs. In addition to its own personalized wallet, the console will also have its own multi-chain wallet for trading, swapping, staking, and receiving cryptocurrency.

Amongst the functionalities the console will have will be a discover section where new games across the Web3.0 ecosystem are displayed for users to try out. In addition, players will be able to view a Leaderboard of players playing a related game. The leaderboard ranking is so positioned to favor those who have won more games and trophies as well as those with more voting records.

The Polium One gaming console will be opened for pre-order to users who own Polium Pass, NFT-like access that can be burnt once the order for the console has been placed. The Polium Pass will be a collection of 10,000 items on the Ethereum Network.

While the estimated release date is pegged for Q3 2024, an initial 10,000 consoles will be launched for all holders of the Polium Pass, afterwards, additional consoles up to 1 million will be produced for the public. As detailed, the hardware will be custom and the CPU/GPU will be provided by NVIDIA, and the software will be built on Linux.
