Decentral Games Emerges As The Front-Runner In The Growing Play-To-Earn Model Revolution
Reading Time: 4 minutes

 

Decentral Games, the premier social gaming Metaverse where players can play-to-earn cryptocurrency, continues to disrupt, expand, and improve its ground-breaking product suite.

Decentral Games’ next level of play-to-earn sophistication involves the launch of in-game ICE Poker, a new way for players to earn real money by completing daily challenges and competing against each other in a free-to-play poker game.

In order to participate, players will need to obtain at least one exclusive iced NFT wearable either through purchase or delegation. When holding a one-of-a-kind Iced NFT, players will be allocated a set amount of Chips which are used to play ICE Poker. Completing daily in-game challenges will earn ICE rewards for users, who will in turn be able to burn ICE to upgrade their wearable NFTs for even greater prestige.

NFT wearable upgrades will inherently create upward mobility for players investing in wearable NFT assets and players who engage with the DG platform the most frequently. Decentral Games believes this is the most promising path forward towards actualizing the full potential of the play-to-earn narrative and creating the most loyal and far-reaching community in the blockchain gaming sector.

The growth of the NFT wearables economy will also be met with further developments from DG as the platform is looking to foster this demand with the creation of a native DG NFT marketplace. The marketplace is aimed at incentivising players to trade their DG NFTs by not requiring buyers to activate their NFTs ($DG fee) for play-to-earn following a purchase on this marketplace. The DG NFT Marketplace will charge a 4% transaction fee that will accrue to the DG Treasury.

The Launch of $DG

Decentral Games launched its native $DG governance token in December 2020 which has since enabled the platform’s investors to share in the fractionalized, collective ownership of the DG DAO and its assets. Today, the DG treasury, which consists of virtual lands, token reserves, and NFT’s commands over $12 million in total asset value.

“The launch of $DG has been foundational to building our strong community and implementing the foundational building blocks of our play-to-earn model,” CEO and founder of Decentral Games, Miles Anthony said. “It’s clear that play-to-earn will play a massive role in the future of crypto and gaming, and Decentral Games is now a first-mover in the nascent space.”

Despite DG’s exponential increase in earnings over the last nine months $DG’s current P/E ratio of 6 suggests the market is undervaluing its future earnings potential, which is creating an opportunity for value investors.

Decentral Games’ market cap currently sits at $131M, with its valuation increasing substantially over the last 9 months and is well positioned to achieve new heights of price discovery in the months ahead.

Expanded its value proposition

Since the launch of its native $DG token last year, Decentral Games has substantially expanded the value proposition of its immersive metaverse environments. The platform has launched a handful of popular virtual games including slots, roulette, blackjack, and poker, expanded its partnerships, and become a front-runner in driving the wildly successful play-to-earn narrative.

As the blockchain-based gaming sector continues its tremendous growth trajectory, Decentral Games’ play-to-earn model is becoming an increasingly important pillar in the project’s promising future. To that end, Decentral Games is continuing to innovate upon the game-changing dynamic with the launch of a dedicated play-to-earn disinflationary token and a series of premium NFT upgrades, which will ultimately yield premium incentives for the platform’s most loyal users.

 

Metaverse Play-to-Earn Gaming 

Win or lose, players engaging in games of poker, blackjack, roulette, and slots, can recoup up to 50% of the house edge back in $DG. This dynamic seeks to align the financial interests of both the players and the investors.

The decentralised play-to-earn model is also unique in that it allows players and employees to acquire shared ownership in the platform the more they interact with the DG metaverse, which incentivizes continued player participation over the long-term. The system has become a primary driver of user acquisition and community-building within the increasingly expansive DG metaverse.

Decentral Games currently offers free blackjack, poker, backgammon, roulette, and slots games in a never-before-seen metaverse that allows players to “be the house” and people to become gaming platform employees on a remote basis.

 

Play-to-Earn: What Is It and What Is Its Potential?

Play-to-earn games are the latest innovation in the blockchain gaming industry, explains a Cointelegraph article. “It will revolutionise how people interact with the economies of their favourite games. It has ensured and embraced the concept of an open economy, making sure players who bring value to the gaming world are rewarded financially.” This is the basic premise driving adoption of the GameFi movement, which is defined by gaming technologies that have the ability to create consistent financial incentives for their players.

The crypto news outlet’s article also says that this revolutionary gaming model has experienced a domino effect of sorts on the crypto markets as an increasing number of people are playing these games in a bid to make an extra earning while having fun. It adds that the markets are on an upward trajectory because major institutions and retail investors are increasingly investing in the games. “This really is the DeFi season,” the article says, adding the trend will continue as these metaverse games attract more players and mainstream attention.

In fact, metaverse has already become a major tech buzzword. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg, for example, mentioned the word at least 20 times while explaining how it has impacted the social media giant’s future. “I think over the next five years or so,” he said during a recent company conference call. Facebook will “effectively transition from people seeing us as primarily being a social media company to being a metaverse company,” he added. While his comments came as a surprise to traditional investment markets, $DG investors have been acutely aware of the metaverse’s potential to completely revolutionize e-commerce, entertainment, and of course, gaming for quite some time. Fans of Decentral Games’ technology have been encouraged by the fact that the project has also taken an outsized role in onboarding traditional companies into the metaverse in an incredible demonstration of thought leadership, which has greatly aided their reputation as a premier metaverse project.

The Sandbox Partners with Snoop Dogg to Bring the Legendary Icon into the Metaverse
Reading Time: 3 minutes

 

The Doggfather is recreating his mansion in The Sandbox virtual gaming world, allowing players to experience concerts and parties and even play as Snoop Dogg

The Sandbox, a leading decentralized gaming virtual world and a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, announced that it has partnered with Snoop Dogg to bring the legendary rapper, actor, songwriter, entrepreneur and entertainer to The Sandbox gaming metaverse.

Snoop Dogg will enter the metaverse by owning his own virtual land in The Sandbox, where he will set up his mansion. Snoop Dogg will also launch his NFT collection including player avatars and a limited ‘Snoop Dogg Private Party Pass’ that gives users VIP access to concerts, events, Q&As, and dedicated NFT drops. Snoop Dogg will also launch a 3D avatar collection inside The Sandbox and players will be able to create games using virtual “Doggfather” items such as Snoop Dogg’s personal car collection, dogs, statues, memorabilia, and more. All info on Snoop Dogg entering The Sandbox, as well as the Private Party Pass can be found on https://sandbox.game/snoopdogg/

Snoop Dogg has always been on the cutting edge of new technologies, investing in telemedicine and launching his own esports tournament series, the Gangsta Gaming League, in 2019. In April of this year, he dropped “A Journey with the Dogg,” a select set of NFTs designed to offer a look into his life that included the exclusive track NFT. His next step into the NFT world is The Sandbox, the fast-growing decentralized gaming platform where Snoop Dogg can share his NFT collection and lifestyle with players around the world.

To mark the occasion, The Sandbox will hold a LAND sale on September 30th, 2021 at 1 p.m. (UTC), which will allow fans to buy LANDS adjacent to the property of Snoop Dogg’s, thus becoming the Doggfather’s virtual neighbors in the metaverse.

“I’m always on the look-out for new ways of connecting with fans and what we’ve created in The Sandbox is the future of virtual hangouts, NFT drops and exclusive concerts,” said Snoop Dogg. “We’ll have a fresh set of Dogg style NFTs that players can integrate into the game experiences to take this online experience to the next level for sure.”
“The idea of having hip-hop legend Snoop Dogg as your next-door neighbor in The Sandbox metaverse is mind blowing – and being able to have a unique Snoop NFT as your in-game avatar is even cooler,” said Sebastien Borget, COO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “By entering the next generation of entertainment where fans, creators, and players can connect and play-to-earn in a gaming virtual world, the Doggfather continues to be a pioneer. I can’t wait to attend the first Snoop Dogg live concert in the metaverse alongside our players!”

“We are building the future of entertainment where everyone will enjoy creating and sharing their very own virtual experiences,” said Arthur Madrid, CEO and Co-Founder of The Sandbox. “The Sandbox is bringing iconic culture with Snoop Dogg and enhancing it through innovation with NFTs and virtual experiences. Snoop’s LAND is decentralized; 100% owned by him to develop through his creative genius. I can’t wait to join his first private party in The Sandbox!”

“We are entering into a new age of creative potential that was never possible bound by the laws of the physical world and are excited to help Snoop continue to provide innovative entertainment for his millions of fans all across the globe,” said Alex Livian, Founder of Cultivate Studios, and representative of The Sandbox & Snoop Dogg collaboration.

As with all The Sandbox partnerships, the collaboration will include carefully curated and designed experiences and specific assets that players can purchase and use in their original creations. This will allow players to step into Snoop’s virtual mansion to join an exclusive pool party experience, enjoy Snoop Dogg’s extensive collection of NFT art, or explore Snoop Dogg’s car collection. Players will also be able to insert voxel versions of Snoop Dogg’s dogs, cars, and other items in their virtual experiences.

Part virtual real-estate, part amusement park, The Sandbox fully embraces the idea of the metaverse as a continuous shared digital space where worlds and heroes collide to make rainbow-colored magic (think Ready Player One). Snoop Dogg joins over 165 existing partnerships including The Walking Dead, deadmau5, Richie Hawtin, The Smurfs, Care Bears, Atari, ZEPETO, and CryptoKitties, all following The Sandbox team’s vision of empowering players to create their own experiences using both original and well-known characters and worlds.

The Sandbox is scheduled to launch its first public Alpha for players in Q4 2021, enabling anyone to experience a social hub and gain the power to build a fantastic collection of fantasy and role-playing adventures that can be traded with other players, creators, and artists on the platform.
