The Production and Operations Division needs a producer, director, programmer, designer, designer, and project manager. The company's Production Support Division is looking for lawyers and accountants.

The blockchain-based platform for trading in-game NFTs that is under development is reportedly compliant with “guidelines for DLT-based games” (distributed ledger technology) established by the Computer Entertainment Supplier's Association, Japan Online Game Association, and the Mobile Content Forum.

Konami was founded in 1969. It is the developer and publisher of such game series as Metal Gear, Silent Hill, and Pro Evolution Soccer. In early 2022, the company held its first NFT auction, which featured tokens for the Castlevania series of games, with proceeds of about $162 000.

Earlier, Disney also began looking for a specialist to develop blockchain products. The applicant must regularly advise on “NFT and cryptocurrency-related matters and issues.”

In September, the developers of the blockchain protocol Zilliqa announced the launch of their own game console focused on Web 3.0 games. The device has its own game center, wallet, and mining utilities. Earlier Epic Games placed the first NFT game called Blankos Block Party in its store.
