GameFi has transformed many parts of the gaming industry from a play-to-win model, to a play-to-earn model. Players of decentralized blockchain games now often play these games to not only collect items and win in-game, but also get to save those items as NFTs for their collections or investment pieces, on top of earning cryptocurrencies for playing. These cryptocurrencies can be used as game currency or even for trading and staking to earn more or have more involvement in the game.
In that sense, GameFi has truly given power to the players of games, with countless new ways to profit from playing, whether it be from tokens or actual playing.
With the rise of GameFi, James McKennie and team came up with the idea of a crypto digital wallet designed for GameFi, to tap on this rising trend. Their brainchild is MetaPocket, which aims to be the best partner for all DeFi players and developers. It works as an aggregator, the ultimate gaming destination and wallet for gamers, investors, and all game studios.
Within the MetaPocket app itself, there are three main features – Game Discovery, In-App Game Browser and Yield Farming. Within Game Discovery, users can explore and discover new or trending blockchain games, and they can then proceed to play these said games in the In-App Game Browser. The Yield Farming feature is a special one that allows users to stake any supported GameFi tokens for the METAPK token, and start earning more on their P2E gaming journey.
The METAPK token gives users and developers benefits such as airdrops, loyalty rewards (e.g. NFT drops), and discounted fees. It also functions as a utility token where developers must pay METAPK as a deposit before listing their games to tap into the MetaPocket ecosystem, so that users are protected and risks are managed in the event that anything untoward happens to the game. All MetaPocket users can earn from staking their GameFi tokens for METAPK tokens and earning yield along with other players, while developers have the opportunity to grow their game and tap on this ever-growing community.
As of now, it supports many top platforms and games like Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, Polkadot, Axie Infinity, The Sandbox, Decentraland, Enjin, and many more, while still looking for more to partner with.
The MetaPocket app is available for download for iOS, Androids and Google Pay at their website here.
