What Is the Nakaverse? Here’s What we’ve Found – XR Today
As the war for building the one true Metaverse heats up, there is another contender that demands our attention: Nakamoto Games, or the Nakaverse.
The platform has been in beta testing for a while and its first title ‘Duck Hunter’ launched in an exclusive community in October last year. The following December, the platform went live and soon attracted a strong following both in terms of gamers and on social media.
The USP of Nakaverse is that it provides game developers and designers with a blockchain-based platform to create and publish 3D games that anyone can access and later monetize.
Defining the Nakaverse
The Nakaverse refers to a pay-to-earn blockchain-based gaming ecosystem that includes both original titles from Nakamoto Games and user-generated content, which, like all Metaverse platforms, has its own token and economy. As of March 27, one Nakaverse token (NAKA) was valued at $0.46, and since its inception, Nakaverse has garnered a lot of industry attention for its unique capabilities.
It will provide users with a chance to create and publish their own games on the Metaverse, something that is technically possible with other platforms, but not in such a seamless way. It is poised to become the world’s first play-to-earn gaming metaverse, aided by the platform’s many tools and features.
Over the last few months, Nakamoto Games launched several highly successful titles on the Metaverse like Candy Shop, NAKAR Racing, Naka Strike, and several others. Not only do these titles promise a highly engaging story and almost addictive gameplay, but players can also win weekly rewards in crypto.
In fact, the platform launched an initiative called Naka Strike Tournament where top players will get the chance to earn a steady income by participating in ongoing multi-player challenges.
Simply put, Nakaverse takes the most compelling aspects of individual and multi-player gaming and places them on a functional metaverse platform that is easy to access and use. This, combined with a series of intelligent titles, makes for a winning value proposition.
The Nakaverse Founding Journey
The team behind Nakamoto Games is based in Thailand, and Chawalit Rugsasri, Company Founder and CEO, is a blockchain expert with over a decade of hands-on experience in the smart contract programming language, Solidity. Rugasi, better known as Tor, started Nakaverse in 2021 when blockchain-based play-to-earn gaming began to gain momentum.
Interestingly, Nakaverse has a packed roadmap and has stuck to it so far, namely at a time when most metaverse platforms are still either at the conceptualization stage or behind their release schedule by several months.
Speaking on their plans for 2022, Tor said,
“Our release schedule for 2022 is truly ambitious. We hope to release up to 100 games over the year and have already released our first-ever multiplayer game called NAKA Blaster. We’ve also launched a new gaming room concept – kind of like a lobby – in which players can coordinate, devise strategies, and compete in new and fun ways.”
Across the year, the platform will mint more NFT land parcels, launch the Nakaverse mainnet (an alternative to testnet, signet, and regtest networks), and develop more career features. It will also launch several new single-player and multiplayer games compatible with HTML 5.
