A strong and successful project relies heavily on its supporters, investors and backers and with the aforementioned list above, we have that in abundance. Our investors and supporters bring with them solid, multifaceted experience in, but not limited to, DeFi, gaming, exchanges, community, which provides the perfect combination for the foundation of GuildFi as we strive to build an interconnected Web3 ecosystem of games, NFTs and communities.

“DeFiance Capital is proud to back GuildFi. GuildFi is led by a team with a passion for gaming and extensive experience in building crypto communities. Their unparalleled strengths in educating users and community building are demonstrated in their ability to build the largest network of influencers in Thailand as well as Asia. We believe they have the necessary building blocks to achieve this ambitious goal of connecting gaming communities and becoming an all-in-one platform serving the needs of players, games, and guilds,” said Arthur Cheong, Founding Partner, DeFiance Capital.

“Valve’s Steam reorganized the order of traditional game platforms, but we, at Hashed, foresee that the next-generation game platform will be underpinned by a combination of play-to-earn gaming model and interoperable in-game assets. Hashed strongly believes the new paradigm for the gaming industry will be decentralized platforms. The more authority games give to the players, the more successful the game will be. In that respect, GuildFi has a very strong potential to solidify its position as a new gaming platform,” said Ethan Kyuntae Kim, Co-founder & Partner, Hashed.

What’s Next?

We are here to take gaming guilds to the next level by developing a Web3 infrastructure to connect games, NFTs, and communities, with an aim to maximize players’ lifetime benefits and enable interoperability across the metaverse.

With this financing round, GuildFi is evolving into an interconnected ecosystem that offers many powerful features, including GuildFi ID, game discovery, scholarship portal, GameFi tools, Proof-of-Play rewards, and Metadrop Launchpad. To achieve this mission, GuildFi looks to collaborate with game creators globally to identify and attract the right players while supporting them through in-game asset investment, campaign collaboration, and more to ensure successful launches and healthy growth.
