Such mentality may be valid in the past era, but I believe that things have already taken a huge turn in favor of global participation and decentralization of the societies in the world. With the ignition of Decentralized Finance (DeFi) and many more technologies to come, I see a world of possibilities for a new model of gaming monetization and shared ownership, where gamers truly own the progress and result of their hard work. Instead of the traditional model of gamers paying companies to delivery entertainment, the revenue generated by the game is redistributed to the players, rewarding each and every party for their contribution and making play to earn possible.
We are a team of 11 from Singapore and Malaysia. We don't have a celebrity team, nor do we have big corporates backing us as partners.
