DePay ⚔ ️Spaceborne — Partnership Announcement (Update)

Perform Web3 Payments in faraway solar systems of the Spaceborne Gaming Metaverse!

Web3 Payment pioneer DePay partners with space-exploration-themed Metaverse game Spaceborne (formerly: “Black Eye Galaxy”) to take multichain Web3 Payments to new heights.

“Black Eye Galaxy” is relaunched as “Spaceborne”

Update 04/2022:

The Black Eye Galaxy team has decided to relaunch the game under the new title Spaceborne.

The team stated that it has come to the conclusion that “the current state of Black Eye Galaxy (…) cannot be scalable to match the expectations of the team for future iterations and changes (…)”.

Specifically, the team explains further that they want to distance themselves more from the profit motive with Spaceborne:

“(…) projects must move away from the play-to-earn paradox which places too much focus on earning and little on entertainment and social interaction — which is essentially the two most important factors for players remaining in a game. The team has been attempting to shift away from focusing too much on the earning aspects and instead dedicating development time to maximizing external revenue streams for the project.”

Concrete changes are especially reflected in the area of their tokenomics:

In order to build a sustainable play and earn game, the team has decided that a dual-token economy is required through the creation of two separate tokens — a limited DAO token and an unlimited rewards token.

DePay is happy to announce that we continue our partnership with Spaceborne.

Formerly announced: DePay x Black Eye Galaxy

Black Eye Galaxy (BYG) is a “Play-to-Earn” NFT game with a variety of user-owned in-game assets such as spaceships, buildings, and even planets. Its Metaverse is divided into star clusters, each of which belongs exclusively to one blockchain. Players can choose from a variety of activity types to play and earn BYG tokens in the process, e.g. crafting different kinds of buildings, mining planet resources and even 3D spaceship racing.

A sophisticated reputation system will motivate users with the help of in-game privileges and perks to ensure that the BYG Metaverse is always an action-packed place.

Partnership scope

The game was launched on the Binance Smart Chain in the beginning, and just like it’s the case for DePay, numerous other blockchain expansions are on the horizon.

Black Eye Galaxy has already integrated the DePay token sales widget and provided valuable feedback which led to improvements in the user experience. Both partners share the goal of using their insights to take the user experience of payments in the metaverse gaming context to a new level.

Team Quotes

“We are excited to partner with DePay as we both share the same vision and goals: to create a true decentralized experience for our users. DePay is an excellent payment facilitator and a cornerstone in achieving our free metaverse.

The nature of our projects and the multichain path that we have ahead of us, will allow our partnership to expand in the future.”

Pablo A., Black Eye Galaxy, Business Developer Manager

“We were pleased when Black Eye Galaxy offered a partnership as the first Metaverse gaming project while also integrating our token sales widget.

When you read the BYG whitepaper, you realize: The team has an exciting multichain journey ahead — just like DePay. Since we are moving in the same direction, it is beneficial for both sides to learn from each other to achieve excellence.”
