Saga raised $3.6 million to make the metaverse middleware, the realm of all interconnected virtual worlds, as in novels like Snowfall And the One loan player.

Saga is a decentralized gaming community focused on expanding and enriching the metaverse by creating on-chain independent market tools, endorsing startups, and unleashing the power of game owners, builders, and players. metaverse around the world. It can do this using non-fungible cross-game tokens (NFTs), which certify unique digital items using the blockchain.

Saga’s priority is to work with regulated Triple-A projects backed by professionals with deep roots in the game. By securing properties and resources traditionally for the wealthy, Saga said it can empower players and provide governance over much of the game—economics for players who enjoy these games the most.

The Saga plans to form a series of game boards that will be recruited through the Soulbound System – a merit system that rewards real players. You won’t just be able to sign up for a board, and you won’t have to beg for a place in the Discord conversation.

You will earn your place in Soulbound by playing games that you already enjoy. Commitment to the Council and ensuring its role in it will confer benefits and responsibilities on an equal footing.

Over time, Saga believes that this player-centric approach will attract the best minds in gaming who want to see blockchain games grow and flourish around the world. With Soulbound as a foundation, SAGA will build scalable integrations and smart contract tools to aid the next evolution of gaming and social networking.

Animoca Brands led the round with participation from Delta Blockchain Fund, Genblock Capital, Moonchain Capital, Compute Ventures, NGC Ventures, Highstreet Ventures, M31 Capital, TsingTing Capital, Metal VC, PANONY, Rainmaker Games, Everest Ventures Group, vEmpire, SL2 Capital, AAG Ventures.

said Yat Siu, CEO of Animoca Brands. “Saga shares our vision for the open metaverse, and we look forward to working with their team as they develop solutions to unlock the potential of blockchain gaming at scale.” “We are very encouraged by Saga’s partnerships with upcoming Triple A titles and tools, and commitment to compliant ecosystems, and we believe that Soulbound’s middleware approach will be able to help the gaming blockchain to develop bases for participating players.”

Animoca Brands is a leading global gamification and blockchain company with an extensive portfolio of more than 340 investments in decentralized web3 projects that help build the open metaverse. SAGA joins Animoca Brands’ web3 investment portfolio, which includes innovators such as Axie Infinity, OpenSea, Dapper Labs (NBA Top Shot), Yield Guild Games (YGG), Splinterlands, Star Atlas, and others. Animoca Brands also has the best blockchain games like The Sandbox and Phantom Galaxies.

The new funding will be used to develop Saga’s first major contribution to blockchain gaming: Soulbound – a player profile system designed to reward players for their passion and engagement across the metaverse.

To promote the adoption of blockchain games, Saga believes that Web3 games should be fun, widely accessible, and valued as entertainment first, and monetization second. In order to accompany and reinforce this dynamic, actors must also invest in the average of daily life with a sense of ownership.

Enter the Non-Transferable Social Token (NTST) – a new token that cannot be sold or transferred. It can only be won. Soulbound will integrate NTST M-XP (Metaverse Experience Points) into a new token Proof of Play system that will track your unique achievements and reputation across the metaverse, building your story.

The company said Soulbound serves gamers, guilds, and games so that a healthy metaverse ecosystem can thrive for years to come.

With a Soulbound player profile, individual players and communities will be able to access exclusive opportunities in the metaverse; Guilds will be able to enrich their recruitment and hiring processes, and games will be able to grow their player bases with real players.

When players complete missions and quests in the different games that Soulbound supports, they are rewarded with NFTs, experience points, achievements, and badges. Basically creating their fingerprint through the Web3 gaming system. The fun thing is that any third party can attach NFT or their own currency as a reward for a mission in Soulbound.

“We are very excited about the future of gamefi as we release features to integrate NTST across ecosystems and create a truly independent profile of metaverse players,” said Casey Grooms, Saga’s Director of Business Development, in a press release. “Becoming the one-stop destination for players and guilds to showcase their gameplay assets, such as NFTs and in-game milestones, get rewarded for gameplay and achievements, complete and launch quests with partner and supported games. Soulbound will help connect all players, guilds, and games together.”

The Soulbound player profile offers more than just customizable rewards and opportunities – it offers on-chain status that cannot be forged or purchased. We are currently working on several high-profile projects to integrate our research platform as an education and reputation system to reflect the experience one brings to the games they play across multiple ecosystems.

Web2 multiplayer online (MMO) and online gamers have invested billions of hours and dollars in walled gardens that will never reward them for the value they provide. Saga wants to change that.

Primary Epic Characteristics

When it comes to series games, Saga believes it has a bright future with Triple-A games. The company has partnered with game developers who will use its middleware.

“Saga has some of the best planets, asteroids and digital Earths in the most promising second generation blockchain games for real communities of players,” AI Mansbridge, COO and co-founder of Saga, said in a statement. “We are working on a system to allow major players to participate in the governance of these courts. To help establish best practices for preparing and retaining motivated players in this emerging model.

An example is phantom galaxies. Le jeu construit par une division d’Animoca Brands est un jeu de tir RPG d’action à la troisième personne, plongeant les joueurs dans un duel interstellaire de Mechanized Starfighters, qui basculent de manière fluide entre mode la mecha form classique un Starship. In mecha mode, unleash a barrage of bullets in space and on Earth, and even come close to wild melee attacks with specific builds – in the form of a spaceship, blast through the stars with tight maneuvers and attack blazing lasers.

Many members of the core Saga team have played Phantom Galaxies alpha since its launch, and have been impressed by the fun of the experience and the engagement of the player base. Saga believes this will be a huge draw for elite guilds and players – and plans to help them find each other.

With multiple planets – including one of a very limited number of “big” ones – and over 100 asteroids, the Saga unlocks limited access to raids, rewards, and gifts through Soulbound.

Other games that use the Saga include Highstreet. Saga will own and operate an exclusive island, Soulbound Sagalans, in this MMORPG, which combines NFTs and physical elements.

Highstreet’s major partnerships with international brands and a dedicated community already playing in the web browser metaverse create an interesting experience on web3 games. By integrating the quest system into Soulbound, the Saga will help create efficient economic cycles in the Highstreet economy and make space for the high-value player base it aims to attract.

Other titles include Impact and Big Time.

Saga said it is building Soulbound to be safe and robust platforms for its users and it knows that regulation will increase in this area. As part of its cautious approach, Saga is awaiting clearer guidance from the US Securities and Exchange Commission and other legal bodies before entering the US market.
