Aptos Labs today announced a long-term strategic development agreement with NBCUniversal aimed at revolutionizing fan experiences, loyalty and gaming through blockchain technology and Web3.

Aptos will expand on NBCUniversal’s previous initiatives that cultivated fan engagement using Web3 and blockchain technologies, including a digital scavenger hunt at Halloween Horror Nights at Universal Studios Hollywood and Universal Orlando Resort.
