Blockchain platform creates an infrastructure for video game developers to incorporate NFTs

SuperFarm, a protocol that allows anyone to deploy crypto and NFT ‘farms’ with no code required, has announced the closing of their first private fundraising round of $1.1M lead by from Bitcoin.com, Spark Digital Capital, GBV Capital, Solidity Ventures, and Animoca Brands. The company’s mission is to help Non Fungible Tokens (NFTs) usher in billions of users through the gaming industry (which has 2.5 billion active users alone), the entertainment industry as well as decentralized finance (DeFi).

SuperFarm’s first use case is to provide the larger cryptocurrency ecosystem the tools needed to add utility to their tokens through NFT Farming with no technical barriers. NFT Farming is a recent phenomenon spawned out of the DeFi bull run in 2020, and allows for new value to be rewarded to token stakers that is non dilutive. The platform already has generated dramatic hype and anticipation from the industry’s most influential content creators.

Utility in gaming is critical, as the next generation cares as much, in not more, about their digital experiences than they do about their real-life experiences. NFTs offer a way for video games to unlock characters and experiences within video games, giving them true utility.

Video Games represent the perfect funnel for blockchain to reach their first billion users. Right now there are over 2.5 billion gamers worldwide who are constantly buying in-game digital assets worth over $100 billion that have no value outside of the digital world. These gamers are hyper-connected, technically savvy, and are dedicated to their games. If major games like Call of Duty or Fortnight had NFTs, every kid under 15 would know how to work an Ethereum address like the back of their hand. This is how we get to mass adoption.” Elliot Wainman, CEO of Superfarm.

SuperFarm is giving tokenized ecosystems across the entire crypto space a simple and effective toolkit they can use to elevate the value of their own token, as well as a throughline to mainstream gaming. The goal is to provide utility today for tokens that might not have utility for months, years, or ever, and push the DeFi and NFT narrative forward as the best case for the first wave of mass adoption of blockchain technology.

Galaxy Racer (GXR), the biggest esports, gaming and lifestyle organisation, headquartered in Dubai, is pleased to announce that its content creator, AboFlah, has successfully raised over US$11M in a charity stream for The World’s Coolest Winter campaign. Whilst completing the stream, AboFlah also officially broke two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles for the “Longest live-stream (video)”, recording live for 268 hours 14 mins 20 seconds and “Most viewers for a charity donation live stream on YouTube”, attracting 698,000 peak concurrent views.

The World’s Coolest Winter campaign, celebrates the UAE’s most beautiful tourism destinations, extended it’s humanitarian support to more than 100,000 refugees and people in need through a new humanitarian initiative called Warm Winter. The campaign aims to support hundreds of thousands of refugees and families in need in Africa and the Arab world by providing food, winter clothing, blankets, mattresses and critical aid to help displaced men, women and children prepare for harsh winter conditions. The campaign is being held in partnership with Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Global Initiatives (MBRGI) and Galaxy Racer. The essential aid will be distributed with the support of the UN refugee agency, United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) and the Food Banking Regional Network.

As part of the campaign, AboFlah lived in a glass room in Downtown Dubai, near the Burj Khalifa and streamed continuously for 268 hours until the target of US$10 million was raised. While in the room, AboFlah encouraged people to donate and spent the majority of his time in front of his computer interacting with fans and those donating to the cause. The stream also attracted global attention and donations from celebrities and influencers including the likes of actress Kristin Davies, actor Amr Maskoun as well as content creators Noor Stars and Omar Farooq.

Launching his YouTube channel in 2017, AboFlah began posting gaming content of him playing FIFA17 before creating content on Fall Guys and Fortnite. His YouTube channel is one of the fastest-growing YouTube channels in the world, with over 23 million subscribers and over 3 billion views. He is followed by millions of fans who avidly watch his vlogs, comedy shorts and formatted shows covering video games and popular culture. AboFlah went on to join Galaxy Racer’s content creator team in 2020, which already boasts some of the biggest content creators in the MENA and Southeast Asia region including fellow YouTube sensation Noor Stars. The organisation now carries over 100 content creators, with a total reach of over 500 million followers across all platforms and more than 2.5 billion monthly views.

Galaxy Racer launched in 2019 and has already become one of the biggest esports, gaming, and lifestyle organisations globally. The organisation has five separate business offerings; Content Creators, Esports Teams, Tournament Management, Merchandising and Lifestyle and GXR Records, a newly established record label that already carries two signed artists from the MENA region and are looking to expand globally.

Galaxy Racer content creator and YouTube sensation, Hassan Suleiman “AboFlah” said: “Warmth in winter for those facing harsh winter conditions is no less important than food and water. There are millions of refugees and displaced people who need all the support they can get. I am proud and thrilled we achieved our goal and raised over US$11 million and brought warmth to the lives of those who are deprived of it. Thank you to everyone who generously donated!

We have proven that Arab youth are capable of changing reality, even with small deeds, and reaching a bright future. “People for People.” This sentence is not a metaphorical slogan, but it was manifested by the huge numbers of donors who felt compassion toward the suffering of refugees and displaced people. This reflects the huge impact this campaign had, which drove viewers’ enthusiasm for participation.

The societal role depends on everyone’s participation, believing in the importance of upholding our human values, and the solidarity in supporting the ones in need. Everyone of us has a role to play in creating the desired positive impact. UAE is the homeland of virtues, and the humanitarian moral actions in this blessed country transcend borders and can’t be stopped by obstacles, such deeds present the community with moral values that our Arab region is in dire need for.”

Galaxy Racer Founder and CEO, Paul Roy said: “We are amazed and grateful by the immense generosity shown by the fans, community and the general public. Raising over US$11 million is no easy task and we’re glad to be part of this humanitarian initiative which will positively impact the affected 100,000 refugees. Smashing two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS™ titles is impressive and a testament to the resilience shown by AboFlah, the Galaxy Racer team, together with our partners MBRGI, UNHCR and the Food Banking Regional Network. We thank you everyone for participating in this record-breaking charity initiative and we look forward to more positive impact initiatives.”
