The Web 3․0 Winter Is Coming: Bucking The Trend With Karmaverse Zombie

sponsored

A crypto winter has come. With BitCoin (BTC) falling over 70% from its all time high along with Ethereum, and a steady drumbeat of news involving crypto-related funds, companies, and projects collapsing, it is clear that the last round of cryptomania has come to a close. Even juggernauts of GameFi such as Axie Infinity (and its AXS coin) have seen prices tumble; without an endless flow of new money, only those with sustainable business models will survive.

Against the Current: Karmaverse Zombie

In this kind of bear market, GameFi faces unprecedented headwinds and negative sentiment, but there are also new projects full of opportunities. However, Yield Guild Games SEA (YGG SEA) has moved thousands of players from Axie Infinity to Karmaverse Zombie, with other leading guilds including Path DAO, Ola GG, and Avacado also showing their confidence in the future of the project by establishing themselves and investing their time and effort.

Investment Backing for Stability

Karmaverse Zombie is the first blockchain game in the Karmaverse, and the first step into a larger ecosystem that will allow its tokens and NFTs to be used across a variety of games. This means its potential extends far beyond the current downturn, and is part of a long-term vision shared by investors including A&T Capital, Polygon Studios, OKX, and others. This backing provides stability and demonstrates the commitment to the game and the larger metaverse it will be a part of by its many stakeholders.

Over 10K New Players Every Month

This design decision has helped Karmaverse Zombie to rapidly grow its userbase, despite the overall bear market for GameFi. Currently, there are over 50,000 active players, with a 30 day retention rate of 94% and a 60 day retention rate of 86%. This demonstrates the power of the PAE model for retaining players and creating a sustainable growth model, and has allowed Karmaverse Zombie to continually expand its userbase.

Top 3 Most Active Game on Polygon

Based on DappRadar’s data, Karmaverse Zombie is already ranked 3rd by number of users on the Polygon Chain. As the crypto winter freezes out fair-weather projects, the resilience and strength of those built on sound foundations will prove itself.

Stable Growth in Token Value

With a growing base of active players, the price for Karmaverse Zombie’s primary tokens of Knots and Serum has been steadily growing over time. This growth is based on real player engagement, and showcases that the value of the tokens is grounded not in wild speculation amid hopes of quick, short-term returns, but is a reflection of actual players enjoying the game and investing their time and money and getting value in return. The steady rate of return provided by the game’s tokens, especially Knots, demonstrates how the PAE mindset provides growth and a high RoI even during a bear market.

Putting Players and Gameplay First

While the Karmaverse will eventually span across multiple genres of games, Karmaverse Zombie has the distinction of being the world’s first Play and Earn (PAE) game. While Play 2 Earn (P2E) games have been the focus, PAE shifts the focus to gameplay and fun, allowing players to earn as a natural extension of engaging gameplay, rather than the gameplay simply being a chore to execute in order to receive the payoff. PAE games are games first and foremost, with the growth in their value being a result of being playable and retaining players rather than raw speculation.

The team behind Karmaverse Zombie has extensive experience in creating games with longevity, having created the successful mobile strategy games Kings of Avalon and Guns of Glory. Karmaverse Zombie combines the casual gameplay of match-3 and the social, player-driven experience of strategy games into a single quality game that both casual and hardcore players can enjoy. If players would play a game even without token and NFT rewards, allowing them to earn money as they play is a positive innovation in the gaming and crypto industry that creates sustainable growth.

With broadly appealing gameplay and a solid economic model, Karmaverse Zombie is a game designed to last, with an exceptionally long lifecycle designed to reward both early adopters as well as welcome new players. No matter when a player begins their journey, as long as they have a few basic NFT resources, they will have the opportunity to earn NFTs and tokens, enjoying good rates of return. Unlike many P2E games based on rewarding only those who get in on the ground level at the expense of latecomers, Karmaverse Zombie is a PAE game that wants to reward all players and ensure everyone who joins has a chance to earn, ensuring the game can grow long into the future.

New Ways to Play in an Expanding Ecosystem

In the four months since Karmaverse Zombie went live, new events and features have been continually added to the game, improving the player experience, balance, and new ways to earn rewards through engaging gameplay. For example, in additional to regular seasons and ladders, new monthly challenges, tournaments, and double rewards for incubating new fighters have been added, allowing players to both play more and earn more.

This is only the beginning. New games will be continuously added to the Karmaverse, with some tokens being transferable across games. In addition, veteran players can receive special NFTs including Karmaverse Avatars that can be used across the platform, which may confer special bonuses in different games.

Over the long term, the crypto market may go through more boom and bust cycles. The only way to ensure long-term viability is through creating products that truly meet the needs and wants to players. When players want to play and encourage their friends to do so, the game and its players will be able to enjoy a healthy ecosystem powered by themselves, not by investors seeking a quick buck in the latest craze. The Karmaverse’s long-term vision is of a game ecosystem powered by players for players, with everyone able to contribute, playing, enjoying- and earning.

․bit Raises $13M To Build Cross-Chain Decentralized Identity Protocol

sponsored

.bit (did.id) has raised $13 million to build a cross-chain decentralized identity protocol. The Series A round, completed one year after the startup’s launch, was from CMB International, HashKey Capital, QingSong Fund, GSR Ventures, GGV Capital, and SNZ.

.bit’s open-source blockchain protocol will provide permissionless decentralized identification for individual users and DAOs. Over the past 12 months, the project’s user and developer communities have experienced strong growth. Almost 100 mainstream wallets and dApps have already integrated with .bit and more than 38k independent addresses have registered for more than 110k .bit accounts.

In the web2 era, social profiles are stored on centralized databases by tech giants who can revoke access or alter data at will. Accounts may be blocked or deactivated at any time, leading to censorship and deplatforming. Utilizing web3 technology, .bit will empower individuals to truly own and control their data. Users will enjoy identity sovereignty, both as private persons and as corporate entities.

Initial applications for .bit’s decentralized identity protocol include Cryptocurrency transfer, decentralized domain resolution, personal profile display, etc. It is expected that .bit will eventually be used as membership and credential management for DAOs, brands and IPs, celebrities and fans, clubs and communities.

Further use cases for .bit’s decentralized identity product include supporting the one billion citizens who lack legal identification. This makes it impossible for them to prove their identity, obtain basic government benefits or healthcare, enroll in education, or exercise their right to vote.

As a cross-chain solution, .bit has supported Ethereum, Tron, Binance Smart Chain, Nervos CKB, and Polygon. In the future, .bit will cover all mainstream public chains such as Bitcoin, Dogecoin, Polkadot, Solana, etc., as well as software and hardware devices that support asymmetric encryption algorithms.

Forthcoming features under development also include NameDAO, which will assign a portion of .bit protocol’s revenue to DAOs and sub-accounts that will be issued to DAO members, brand adopters, and loyal supporters to strengthen web3 communities, and further lower the threshold for registering accounts, 4-9 digits account available to 100% and open up 3 digits accounts, which will announce the specific rules on the official Twitter very soon.

About .bit

Upland Sustains Mass Market Readiness With All-Inclusive Economy

Upland Sustains Mass Market Readiness With All-Inclusive Economy

sponsored

Upland is a mobile-first blockchain metaverse that allows users to buy virtual properties based on real world addresses, build on those properties to increase their value, and sell them to increase their virtual real estate portfolio. Upland has the unique position to attract mass markets due to the fact that the economy is built to be open and inclusive. Different tiers of costs allow everyone to participate in true ownership. Sign up to play Upland here.

Upland Maintains and Expands Metaverse Economy

Upland has been quietly expanding, growing, maintaining, and expanding the metaverse economy. The platform is not only an acquisition game – selling plots of metaverse land to its 392,746 monthly active users, but it also sells NFTs. To date, Upland has sold NFTs worth more than $3M+. Founded in June 2019 in Silicon Valley, Upland has grown substantially each year in its evolution from a property trading game to a feature-rich metaverse destination focused on an entrepreneur and creator driven economy, with at least 242,107 active users in the last 30 days.

The platform can put its success down to the meaningful value that an Upland experience brings to a user. Upland’s mixed reality Monopoly-based gameplay is broadly appealing to the masses, and Upland is created for a broad user base, not niche gamers.

The Unity-based 3D world will slowly get more creator tools for developers and users. In an intelligent move by Upland, the company will allow real estate owners to build whatever they want “behind closed doors” of their property. Upland has 280,000 unique property owners, and over the last six months, properties in the secondary market have, on average, sold more than 234% more than mint price, bagging Upland users more than $7M to date collectively.

Rio De Janeiro Launched and Cool New Partners Join

Rio de Janeiro is officially the first international city to launch in Upland. The buzz was real. Rio launched as a city on Upland in July 2022, with 50,000 properties selling out in just a few hours. Users of Upland set a minting record at 54 per second, 3,230 per minute. In addition to adding a brand new team of developers in this metaverse-curious country, Rio de Janeiro is the beginning of international expansion in virtual properties mapped to their real-world counterparts and new partnerships in Brazil and beyond.

The expansion is expanding the metaverse and bringing more users into the Upland economy. It is also an excellent opportunity for Upland to embrace local cultural flavours never seen in the metaverse. Aside from that, Upland is excited to bring new partnerships into the metaverse – partners that add new dimensions to our economics, sprinkle in a little culture, and add extra energy to Upland. With Rio De Janeiro, Upland welcomes Mangueira Samba School! Mangueira is one of Brazil’s oldest, most revered samba schools and carries a long tradition of popularizing samba music and dance.

There are other revered partnerships that Upland is excited to work with. Other global brand partners include National Football League Players Association (NFLPA), Portugal’s leading soccer club FC Porto, Spirit Halloween, and Hyperloop.

One of the most exciting recent partnerships is with Brazil’s Flex Interactiva. With 3D interactive solutions created in Brazil, Upland expands 3D experiences into the metaverse, and embedded brands can begin their blockchain journey, giving users an exciting opportunity to explore immersive experiences on the platform.

Explore the latest cardano metaverse project

Disclosure: This is a sponsored post. Readers should conduct further research prior to taking any actions. Learn more ›

Cardano has proven to be one of the most active and busiest digital assets in the crypto world in the past year. Therefore, many experts expect that Cardano will have a great future in 2022, and it has also been stated that ADA is one investment option worth examining and projects based on it.

The Cardano blockchain is used to build smart contracts and create decentralized applications and protocols. Additionally, the ability to send and receive funds instantly for minimal fees has many applications in business and finance analyzing making a move.

Cardalonia, a metaverse project built on Cardano, has revealed plans to kick off after the following staking snapshot, with $LONIA token holders being the first to be able to join in the land minting after the token presale has ended.

Cardano and Cardalonia

Cardalonia is one of the first metaverse projects on Cardano to build a non-custodial staking vault where you can stake and earn rewards without your tokens ever leaving your wallet.

With just three steps: create, explore, and trade, you can start your Cardalonia journey.

Using $LONIA tokens, users can create custom avatars, purchase lands, explore and personalize their Cardalonia experience, gather resources, and get rewarded in Cardalonia asset NFTs. Moreover, they can sell their in-game reward NFTs on the Cardalonia marketplace and get awarded in ADA; these are just a few benefits.

Getting in the $LONIA token presale

The Cardano metaverse token, $LONIA, is now available for investors who want to acquire it at a discount before the official listing on crypto exchanges. The pre-sale started on July 5, 2022, and will end in 45 days or after total purchases hit the hard cap.

$LONIA staking model works in a way like Cardano staking but with a higher APY (Annual Percentage Yield). So, $LONIA token holders will be able to utilize their token in multiple ways, like staking to earn rewards of over 20% APY without their tokens ever leaving their wallet.

Also, $LONIA holders will have the opportunity to be the first to join in the Cardalonia land NFT sale by having an active stake of 7000 $LONIA tokens.

More about the project

Cardalonia defines itself as a creator-centric metaverse and play-to-earn platform that offers complete interaction with NFTs and CNTs powered by the $LONIA utility token.

The Cardalonia Metaverse project has collaborated with multiple strategic partners like Readyplayerme. The scope was to enable $LONIA token holders with an active $LONIA token stake on the Cardalonia Vault and an Adahandle address to create and customize their avatars in readiness for deployment when the Metaverse game becomes available.

Cardalonia also announced another sale, the Terrania Land NFT sale, which will begin in September following the following staking snapshot, with $LONIA token holders being the first to be allowed to participate in the land minting after the token presale has concluded.

Stay updated

Keep up with Cardalonia by their socials; you can find them on Twitter, Telegram, and Discord. Also, keep track of the official Cardalonia website to access the updates quickly.
