Leading blockchain service integrator, Gigster, today announced their latest partnership with Dapper Labs, the company behind CryptoKitties, NBA Top Shot and the original creators of Flow. The partnership will bring forth an improved way for customers to build NFT marketplaces and enable exciting collaboration for blockchain projects in the Flow ecosystem. As more companies are challenged with quickly adapting to new technologies such as blockchain, Gigster provides a proven delivery methodology, world-class subject matter experts, and fully managed services to deliver blockchain solutions in record time. Gigster’s growing partner ecosystem allows for new ideas to have access to leading engineering services, tooling providers, thought leadership activities, marketing strategist, investment vehicles, and other incredible offerings from the wider blockchain community. Gigster and Dapper Labs have a proven track-record of shared success, having worked together since mid-2019. Since then, they have continued to collaborate on Dapper’s studio projects and support those building projects on Flow. “We’ve been close to the team since the early days of Flow and it’s incredibly exciting to see how far the ecosystem has come with their decentralized innovation paving the way in the blockchain industry,” said Cory Hymel, Gigster’s Director of Blockchain. “Being able to support new ideas, businesses, and engineers that want to be part of this community is a great feeling.” As part of the partnership, Gigster will also invest to create an education program to allow engineers to onboard quickly into the Flow ecosystem. “We’re thrilled to have Gigster’s continued support on both Dapper’s studio projects and those coming from our amazing ecosystem of third party partners on Flow,” said Mickey Maher, SVP of Partnerships at Dapper Labs. “Gigster’s ability to provide easily customizable frameworks is instrumental for the growing Flow ecosystem.”
