The field of cryptocurrencies saw many trends come and go throughout the past couple of years. This was especially amplified by the tremendous bull market that we saw in 2021. The majority of coins exploded in value, which led to the creation of many new ones where teams were trying to capture as much of the excitement as possible
However, in the past few months, the play-to-earn trend is catching up to speed, and it seems that it’s something that might be here to stay for the long run. Online gaming has been touted as one of the best use cases for blockchain-based technology, and it seems that this is finally catching up.
This was further emphasized by the growing interest in non-fungible tokens (NFTs). They are undoubtedly the hottest topic in the industry and also represent a massive gateway for onboarding new users into the industry.
GemUni is a gaming platform that has emerged from the crypto space aiming to disrupt the booming gaming industry. Although new, it offers an innovative play-to-earn model that tends to cater to the needs of all gamers worldwide instead of a specific demographic, like most P2E games.
The gaming platform has kicked-off 2022 in style with its successful Initial DEX Offering and token listing. GemUni hosted its IDO on GameFi, Red Kite, KrystalGo, selling all of its GENI tokens in an hour. After that, the token has been listed successfully on PancakeSwap and KyberSwap.
What is GemUni?
Play-to-earn is arguably the hottest keyword in the blockchain space at the moment, and NFT games are probably the most sought out DApps.
P2E games are driving the crypto economy, attracting gamers from around the world to leverage the unique earning model to make extra income for themselves. According to DappRadar, close to 50% of blockchain users connected to a gaming DApp in 2021.
GemUni is an NFT gaming platform, but with a difference. It aims to allow users to enjoy thousands of latest crypto games without moving out of the game’s ecosystem. Most NFT DApps currently only have one game. Playing this one game consistently can get the user bored over time. In addition, it might be suited to a particular audience, leaving out the rest of the gamers.
Crypto gaming geeks would want an ecosystem with thousands of games to choose from without moving out of the DApp. This is what GemUni is all about. The team behind it aims to create a P2E platform for everyone’s favorite gaming. GemUni consists of two types of games – Casual and Signature.
Casual Games are simple, popular games that everyone can enjoy regardless of age. These games come in diverse categories, such as Puzzle, Sports, Simulation, etc. Signature games are different from their Casual counterparts. They are for the advanced users that want to experience more uniqueness and boost their earnings. Each Signature game has its token that serves as a reward to players.
Users will need a GENI Pass NFT to access any of the gaming platforms. Think of a GENI Pass as a ticket to the GemUni gameverse. These NFTs come in five levels – Stone, Topaz, Citrine, Ruby, and Diamond. Each GENI Pass will generate a game ticket that can be used per day. In addition, the level of the GENI Pass determines the earning rate.
GemUni: The Future
Earlier this January, the platform unveiled its roadmap for the new year after hitting significant milestones in 2021, such as offering its GENI Pass NFTs on several marketplaces, launching its Beta Test, and garnering over $2 million from investors in a private fundraising round.
Fortunately for the team, the first milestone on the roadmap has been achieved. Now, it will set sights on accomplishing other targets. The gaming platform will release the long-awaited Casual and Signature Games before Q1 2021 ends.
GemUni is also expected to announce its NFT marketplace for trading collectibles and in-game items in Q1. Other features, such as GemUni Launchpad for IGOs and INOs, DAO Treasury, and Side Chain, will be launched in the next quarter.
