YGG Sponsor-A-Scholar Updates
YGG’s Sponsor-A-Scholar program, which gives organizations and individuals a platform to help scale the positive impact of play-to-earn games, has been a life-altering experience for many scholars across the world.
Over September to December 2021, YGG sent a survey to the scholars sponsored by Flying Falcon, Leaping Corgi and FTX to gauge their progress and measure the impact of the program on their daily lives. A total of 230 scholars from the Philippines, Indonesia, India, Brazil, Venezuela and Peru answered the survey.
