We’re delighted to announce our newest partnership with Polkastarter Gaming Guild, which will join our network of guild partners. They will aim to adopt our exclusive Gamer Passports (powered by NFMe ID Data Avatar Technology), which empowers players to own and trade their data.

A gaming guild is a collection or group of gamers that organize to play online digital games together and share their data. Polkastarter Gaming is connecting projects in the Gamefi industry with gaming enthusiasts worldwide. Itheum will partner and collaborate with their team to bring our flagship Gamer Passport technology to the Polkerstarter Gaming Guild, empowering gamers to own and trade their Web3 gaming data.

Partnership Details

Polkastarter Gaming Guild (PGG) is the first project to be onboarded to empower player data ownership through gaming guilds. Thus, players will earn from playing and leveraging their personal data. Our Gamer Passports will provide distinctive new value to Web3 gaming guilds like PGG and to the Web3 game platform itself as they seek to unlock valuable gamer insights that were previously inaccessible.

Once our Gamer Passport technology has been implemented, gamers can mint and claim an NFMe ID Avatar (a soulbound NFT linked to their identity) which will exist in their cryptocurrency wallets.

Gamers can now claim and own their on-chain and off-chain player data as they move between guilds and the broader Web3 gaming ecosystem, carrying their Gamer Passport with them, doubling as a Gamer CV.

PGG will be integrating Itheum’s Discord “data adaptor bot” into their server, which will serve two essential purposes:

  1. Allowing their users to mint their NFME ID and attach their Discord ID to their NFMe ID.

2. To track the Social performance within their Discord Server, also known as “Social Score”

Therefore, these off-chain data sets will be able to demonstrate their community engagement, sentiment, productivity, and more. This measurement of community involvement is becoming increasingly crucial for projects like Polkastarter Gaming, which prides themselves on their community — they’ll gain access to these powerful insights by working with Itheum.

This integration will also allow insights into players’ gaming performance and earnings across different timescales, such as daily, weekly, and monthly. The data retrieved from Gamer Passports will live within a linked Data Coalition DAO and be bulk tradeable with pre-approved parties.

Furthermore, once the player creates their NFMe ID, they will also be able to view it as an NFT in their wallet. The player will have their own dashboard where they can monitor and track their performance.

What’s Next in the Pipeline?

This collaboration will allow gamers to create an additional revenue stream from their skills, truly empowering them to take ownership of their gaming data while trading it using our P2P technology. Moreover, suppose you’re a Polkastarter gamer seeking to further your skills or a guild aiming to attract the best gamers. In that case, you can discover and access high-value data and insights via primary and secondary data markets.

We’re very excited about this partnership and look forward to working with the incredibly talented Polkastarter Gaming team. This collaboration is just the beginning, as we’ll be working closely together moving forward to pave the way for other guilds to come aboard and truly empower their community.
