Together with YGG they launched Web3 Metaversity a program that enables YGG Guild Badge holders to learn new skills and uncover opportunities in web3.
Launch of the Guild Advancement Program (GAP)
In April 2022, YGG launched Season 1 of the Guild Advancement Program (GAP), an achievement-driven token distribution protocol designed to reward and acknowledge guild members who make meaningful contributions to the YGG community, its projects and its operations. Season 1 consisted of 45 missions, called “achievements,” developed to help individual community members take a more proactive role in running the guild. GAP participants collectively earned over 102,160 YGG tokens, and over 1,030 NFTs were distributed to them. The NFTs were created by 45 artists commissioned by YGG from Cryptopop Art Guild (CPAG).
Launch of Reward Vaults
In July 2022, YGG’s Reward Vaults were launched to deliver a long-term, sustainable reward program that bridges YGG’s passionate play-to-earn community with its extensive partner network. By staking YGG tokens, YGG Guild Badge holders get exposure to other web3 game tokens such as Aavegotchi’s GHST and Crypto Unicorn’s RBW, League of Kingdoms’ LOKA and Thetan Arena’s THG, which were added to the vaults in November.
Growth of YGG Esports
Recognizing the many opportunities esports culture can bring to web3 gaming communities, the guild has placed great focus on strengthening its position and growing its influence within the competitive scene.
A Successful Philippine Web3 Festival
The inaugural Philippine Web3 Festival was a huge success. Hosted by YGG and BlockchainSpace, the event saw more than 2,000 in-person attendees plus more than 10,000 tuning in online and from satellite watch parties all across the archipelago.
YGG Leads the Evolution of Gaming Guilds
Demonstrating adaptability and its vision for growth by continuing to evolve its models and services, the guild continues to put the needs of its community first. YGG would like to extend its sincerest gratitude to its community and partners for the value and support they have provided in 2022. The team is excited for the coming year as we continue to build the web3 gaming sphere, our communities and the open Metaverse.
