TikTok’s Parent Company Explores Web3 Gaming and AI

BytePlus, the enterprise technology branch of ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, has unveiled its entry into the Web3 space through a strategic collaboration with Mysten Labs, the developers behind the Sui layer-1 blockchain.

Partnership Details and Objectives

In a statement released on April 17, BytePlus outlined its intention to leverage its expertise in artificial intelligence (AI) and data warehousing to support the Sui ecosystem, with a specific focus on Web3 gaming and SocialFi initiatives.

The collaboration aims to integrate BytePlus’s advanced solutions, including ByteHouse — a cloud-native data warehouse — with Sui’s full-node data. This integration is anticipated to enhance Sui’s analytics capabilities through scalable infrastructure and real-time data processing, ultimately providing a competitive edge in the evolving Web3 landscape.

Mysten Labs stands to benefit from ByteHouse’s high-performance and low-maintenance features, potentially expediting data delivery for users within the Sui network and fostering a more robust ecosystem.

Evan Cheng, co-founder and CEO of Mysten Labs, expressed optimism about the partnership’s potential to revolutionize data analytics in the Web3 domain, emphasizing the transformative impact it could have on the broader digital ecosystem.

“Integrating cutting-edge AI and visual algorithms into Sui signifies a leap forward for user experience within Web3 gaming platforms and SocialFi projects.”

ByteDance’s Previous Endeavors in Web3

ByteDance’s foray into Web3 technology is not unprecedented. In 2019, reports emerged of the company forming a joint venture with a state-owned Chinese media group to explore blockchain and AI-driven ventures, indicating a longstanding interest in innovative technologies.

In June 2020, ByteDance pursued a virtual banking license in Singapore as part of its aspirations to enter the digital finance arena, demonstrating its commitment to expanding its presence in the evolving digital landscape.

Sui Ecosystem Developments

Introduced by Mysten Labs in March 2022, Sui is a relatively new layer-1 network that has witnessed significant ecosystem growth in recent months, fueled by strategic partnerships and ongoing development efforts.

In February, the Sui Foundation collaborated with a university in the United Arab Emirates to establish a blockchain academy, highlighting its commitment to education and skill development in the blockchain space. Subsequently, it was announced that the Greek stock exchange, ATHEX, would adopt Sui’s blockchain ecosystem for its new fundraising mechanism, further solidifying Sui’s position as a prominent player in the Web3 ecosystem.
