Web3 technology platform, Nefta, has announced a new partnership with Web3 strategy game, Medieval Empires from blockchain gaming studio, MoonGaming, in which they will provide its blockchain technology for its launch.
Medieval Empires is a multiplayer, blockchain, strategy game set in what is now Turkey, in the 13th Century. You will follow Ertuğrul Gazi, portrayed by Turkish TV and film star Engin Altan Düzyatan, a tribal warrior and a celebrated leader of the Kayi tribe as you face off against the future King of England, Edward 1st “Hammer of the Scots”. Build your own empire through trading, fighting, and forging alliances while expanding and building towns, as Edward embarks on the 9th Crusade, across Europe, towards the Holy Land.
Medieval Empire is hosted on the Polygon Blockchain, this proof-of-stake approach allows the developers to keep energy costs, and environmental impact low, securing MoonGaming’s commitment to sustainability. The game will be completely free to enter and will remove any technological blockers that might hinder players. Powered by Nefta’s technology, any web3 elements will be fully integrated into the game to allow seamless gameplay whilst allowing players to integrate their existing wallets across other platforms. The game will be available cross-platform on PC/MAC and mobile.
Land is an integral part of Medieval Empires’ economy and gameplay and will initially be sold by the game through the Polygon network NFT marketplace. The land within the game is divided into 6 tiers with the plots within each tier carrying distinctive features and resource generation capabilities. Tier 0 is reserved for new players, only the upper 5 Tiers can be bought. Land owners will also get the opportunity to upgrade the land with the help of in-game NFT structures.
Geeshan Willink, CEO and Co-Founder of Nefta, said: “The team at MoonGaming have got the experience and backing to create an excellent Web3 product and we are delighted to announce our partnership with them to help create Medieval Empires. By removing the roadblocks commonly found in Web3 gaming projects we can offer a comprehensive, end-to-end solution and foster the next generation of Web3 games.”
Jan Berkefeld, CEO at MoonGaming, said: “Team Medieval Empires is looking forward to providing the next-gen blockchain gaming experience to all – thanks to our strategic cooperation with Nefta. We are glad to have an experienced team assembled with crypto megastar Carl ‘The Moon’ Runefelt at the helm and with actor Engin Altan Düzyatan as the face of this game. Together we are working to create something unique in the Web3 gaming space.”
Assad Dar, Co-founder and Chief Visionary Officer at MoonGaming, said: “Medieval Empires will be accessible and always free-to-enter. It will be sustainable, running on the Polygon blockchain, and it will give players the power to play-and-own and keep everything they make in-game.”
Microsoft Backs Blockchain-Focused Gaming Company WeMade
Over the last few years, Microsoft has been venturing out and investing in new sectors of technology, such as investing in Space and Time, a decentralised data warehouse. Microsoft’s investments in areas such as Web3 are a sign of the times, as many large-cap technology companies have adopted the idea since 2021. Web3 is an idea that uses cryptocurrencies and blockchain technology to provide internet users with data security, privacy, and scalability.
Microsoft’s Latest Venture
Most recently, we have seen Microsoft back WeMade, a South Korean video game developer that has made several aggressive bets on blockchain technology over the years. WeMade is best known for creating the Legend of Mir series, which has attracted more than 120 million users in Asia. The company’s games, such as Legend of Mir 2, generate over $20 million per month in China alone, highlighting the dominating presence WeMade has in the Asian gaming market. WeMade is also a progressive video game company that has been exploring different ways to incorporate blockchain into its games.
WeMade’s Work In Blockchain
The company’s objective is to use blockchain technology to transform everyday games and to have its stablecoin used as one of the main currencies in the blockchain gaming market. Microsoft recognises the private company’s potential, investing $14.8 million in the company through convertible bonds, as per regulatory filings. Shinhan Asset Management and Kiwoom Securities also backed the blockchain gaming-focused company, with Shinhan investing $21.2 million and Kiwoom investing $10.5 million. These three investments are just the beginning of WeMade’s plans to build its global blockchain gaming ecosystem.
WeMade is at the forefront of blockchain gaming, which is why the company is receiving significant backing from some of the most respected companies in the gaming sector. Blockchain already has a considerable presence in the gambling industry and brings with it many advantages. Casinos that embrace blockchain allow individuals to play games solely using crypto by supporting the most popular digital currencies available. This means that players don’t have to wait a long time to get payouts or register to play games like blackjack and slots in the crypto gaming space. These are the defining features of the best crypto casino online. The increasing presence of blockchain in gaming and online gambling makes one wonder if it will make its way into sports betting.
There are also blockchain-based games that let players have real ownership of in-game assets, such as CryptoKitties, a platform developed by Canadian studio Dapper Labs in Vancouver, British Columbia. In 2018, CryptoKitties received backing from Steph Curry after partnering with the Golden State Warriors star to release the first-ever celebrity-branded CryptoKitty. Each CryptoKitty represented Curry’s interests and skills, such as his passion for cooking.
Where Else Are We Seeing The Idea Of Web3?
Microsoft may be investing in blockchain and Web3, but the technology company isn’t the only one. While some critics have pointed out concerns over Web3’s decentralisation, and Jack Dorsey and Elon Musk have both said the idea serves only as a marketing term, companies like Nike are still moving into this space.
During the week of November 14th, 2022, Nike announced that it is launching a Web3-enabled platform called ‘.Swoosh’. The platform will allow people to collect and trade digital items like virtual sneakers and the Nike .Swoosh platform is expected to launch in January 2023. It is meant to encourage customers to become co-creators in digital product royalties. The platform’s digital collectibles can be used in Web3 games such as t-shirts and sneakers, and the company also stated that users will be able to unlock real-world benefits through Web3 technology, including conversations with pro athletes.
Microsoft has been investing in new industries for years, and WeMade has been making a global name for itself in blockchain gaming at the same time. It’s not a surprise that the two companies have finally come together, with Microsoft investing a substantial amount of capital in the South Korean video gaming company. The future is blockchain gaming, and Microsoft will be glad the company got its foot in the door in the beginning.

Blockchain Trading Card Game Kingdom Hunter Launching This Month on WEMIX PLAY
Kingdom Hunter, the brand new blockchain trading card game developed by RedFox Games, launches on WEMIX PLAY on November 15.
Kingdom Hunter is the first game based on a completely new IP on the WEMIX platform and features unique gameplay, upgraded mechanics and intuitive strategy. Kingdom Hunter is highly anticipated for its illustrious graphics and innovative Play-and-Earn gaming style. The number of pre-registrations around the globe has already surpassed the 1 million user milestone, following two closed beta tests.
“Kingdom Hunter was designed for the WEMIX PLAY platform from the ground up – from onboarding to the game development stages. We are confident of the title’s ability to perform well in the Play-and-Earn space,” David Son, CEO of RedFox Games, said.
“We are putting significant efforts behind supporting Kingdom Hunter, to help the game reach its full potential in the global market. We expect this title will play a key role in breaking down barriers between games and our real-life world through the inter-game economy of the WEMIX platform,” Henry Chang, CEO of Wemade, said.
Kingdom Hunter maximises the charm of the turn-based battle system by adding the ability to capture and persuade enemies’ Hero cards. The game is backed up by a roster of content including fantasy stories, the collection, and growth of multiple Heroes, battles based on character traits, and the development of cities via political decisions. Dynamic battles, which take place on a gigantic world map to obtain strategic footholds, add a new layer of entertainment to the game.
The main currency of the game is Lord Coin. Users can earn Lord Coin with in-game resources such as Runestone. The game’s systems enable users to earn resources and currency in the game, which can later be used in the real-world economy by exchanging Lord Coin into WEMIX tokens. Kingdom Hunter’s Lord Coin will be joining the REFLECT Alliance on the WEMIX platform, allowing for easy token swaps across games.
