Why did you decide to partner up with EoF?
What caught our eye about EoF was, first and foremost, their seasoned team of gaming enthusiasts and developers who have also been crypto-native for years. Many teams are missing one or the other trait in order to be successful in this cutthroat industry — EoF has it all.
What is your take on GameFi and its power in bringing mass adoption to blockchain?
GameFi breaches a vast and untapped market that has existed in primitive forms for years but whose potential has yet to be truly unlocked. Blockchain tech within games is one of the key ways that will help us to bring composability, strong use cases for NFTs, and a real sense of ownership to players. Once it becomes the standard, then there’ll be a lot more on ramping to the blockchain.
What should crypto games have to stand out from today’s crowded market?
We believe crypto games and their teams need three key ingredients to succeed today: well-designed tokenomics, solid gameplay, and the ability to innovate. We believe that successful games will be built with the long-term in mind — therefore, having a solid foundation in place (tokenomics and gameplay) and the flexibility to make necessary changes when needed is paramount to creating superior games. And, most of all, crypto games must be fun!
