Play Now Pay Later NFT Startup Chooses Fordefi’s MPC Wallet Platform

We’re excited to announce that Halliday, a blockchain gaming infrastructure platform helping to bring the first billion players to Web3, has chosen Fordefi as their MPC wallet.

With Fordefi’s recent announcement as the first institutional MPC wallet to support Stark signatures, Fordefi’s MPC wallet is the most secure custody solution on the market for StarkEx transactions.

“Fordefi’s wallet addresses a challenge we’re constantly dealing with in DeFi - secure connectivity and chain support. Fordefi’s multi-chain MPC platform enables us to confidently scale new chain support with institutional grade security. We’re excited to continue working together on future deliveries.” said Griffin Dunaif, Cofounder at Halliday.

Halliday - Web3 Gaming Infrastructure for Digital Asset Ownership

Halliday was started by co-founders Griffin Dunaif and Akshay Malhotra, with a mission to help bring the first billion players to Web3. Games have become a fundamental part of our social fabric and Halliday believes that games will evolve into a digital civilization where the chain codifies ownership. Halliday is making digital asset ownership more accessible than ever, by bringing the buy now pay later model deployed by popular apps like Klarna and Afterpay, into the world of Web3 gaming and NFTs. Halliday is backed by prominent investors Andreessen Horowitz (a16z Crypto), Hashed, and others, raising a $6M seed round in 2022.

“Getting to work with companies like Halliday and watching them leverage the capabilities of our institutional MPC solution is very exciting,” said Steve Horvath, VP of Sales at Fordefi. “Fordefi’s secure architecture enables Halliday to scale fast and deliver a secure and reliable solution.”

Halliday MPC Wallet Challenges

As a Web3 gaming infrastructure platform for NFTs, Halliday works to support new blockchains popular for gaming dApps in the ecosystem. To securely support their partners, Halliday wanted to find an MPC wallet solution for their partners transacting on StarkEx. Initially, there were no MPC wallets on the market supporting Starkware and the option to build a solution in-house was considered but came with its own challenges.
