SINGAPORE, January 25, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE). Digital entertainment asset (DEA), a Singapore-based global Web3 entertainment company and operator PlayMining The GameFi platform has announced the introduction of legal tender as a new payment method on the PlayMining platform. PayPal, credit and debit card payments will now be accepted with the company’s DEAPcoin token ($DEP).
Legal tender will be accepted for payments on the PlayMining NFT marketplace, including purchases in games such as the company’s flagship JobTribes and other games on the platform. However, this payment method only applies to purchases from the “Official Store”. Players must continue to use DEP for custom purchases.
“Most NFT marketplaces only accept cryptocurrencies for payments, which is a major barrier for new users unfamiliar with the crypto space. This has hindered the adoption of blockchain gaming in some ways,” said the DEA co-founder and co-CEO. Kozo Yamada. “Through the adoption of PayPal, credit and debit card payments, we can create an environment where even those who are new to blockchain games can easily get started. This will help the DEA bring the Play and Earn experience to more people and drive the mainstream adoption of GameFi.“.
Building a GameFi community like no other
PlayMining is home to a rapidly growing Play and Earn (P&E) NFT games catalog including Worker Tribes, cooking burger, Menya Dragon Ramen, graffiti racer and happy farmer. All games allow players to earn DEP while playing, which can then be exchanged on popular cryptocurrency exchanges, spent on the PlayMining NFT marketplace, or redeemed at DEA buyout program. There are official service NFTs on the market for use in PlayMining games, as well as NFTs with original illustrations from the creators of some of the most famous Japanese video games and anime, including Final Fantasy, Dragon Quest, and Fairy Tail.
The company is also implementing the PlayMining Verse metaverse initiative. It is home to Fujiwara Kamui Verse, a project led by renowned manga artist Kamui Fujiwara that uses the platform to co-create epic comics with the PlayMining community. The interactive nature of PlayMining Verse has thus far allowed Fujiwara and his fans to co-release five story acts and two Line stamp collections, as well as host both physical and digital encounters.
PlayMining is also hard at work expanding the collaborative creative aspects of its platform by creating the PlayMining Lab, a place where a range of experimental projects and new technologies can be conceived, tested and implemented with the community. The first project of PlayMining Lab, PlayMining Olympians, will start soon. In PlayMining Olympians, community members will choose the best players to compete in various competitions on the PlayMining platform to find out who is the best.
