Introducing the $80m Metaverse Grant Program
Founded in collaboration with Chromia and My Neighbor Alice, the $80m program will provide support to the most promising ideas in an effort to expand the metaverse surrounding Mines of Dalarnia and the Chromia ecosystem at large.
The P2E action adventure game Mines of Dalarnia is quickly gaining traction in the rapidly expanding blockchain gaming space. The launch of the DAR token on Binance Launchpool, as well as the recent teasers regarding Mines of Dalarnia 2.0 has the community optimistic for the future of the project. With over 100,000 users interacting with the testnet and over 4 million transactions generated on chain, the game is proving itself to be enjoyable for the casual user and gaming enthusiast alike.
Mines of Dalarnia is being envisioned as a ‘first stop’ for metaverse gaming, by providing new users with a streamlined experience. As metaverse gaming is still in its early stages, resources for players are limited and the gaming experience is not optimized. Rather than starting with a completely user generated universe, MoD starts with action-based mining and then gradually expands into additional activities such as crafting, land sales, and enhanced social features.
The MoD team is establishing the Metaverse Grant Program in order to expand and enrich its gaming universe. Grants will be available for developers building add-ons and utilities for the game itself, but also for teams looking to design standalone games that can interact with the world of Dalarnia.
“Our game studio believes that NFTs and the in-game economies they create will become a staple of the gaming industry. We are proud to be part of the Chromia ecosystem and strive to make Mines of Dalarnia the entry point for many blockchain users to the metaverse.” -Manfred Pack — Project Lead, Mines of Dalarnia
Mines of Dalarnia utilizes the Chromia network as part of its backend design, allowing other supported titles to share assets across game worlds. As the number of participants in the ecosystem expands, complex synergies can form between multiple in-game economies. This also opens the possibility of cross-dapp adventures, where an asset acquired in one game can help the user progress in another. The Metaverse Grant Program will accelerate this expansion to create a gaming metaverse that is more robust, immersive, and resilient.
