The partnership will work to support the growth of gamified non Fungible Tokens
UAE Based Sheesha Finance, decentralized cryptocurrency mutual fund for DeFi investors to easily access a variety of projects has partnered with Splinterlands, the leading digital, collectible card game built on blockchain technology. The partnership will support the Splinterlands governance token ($SPS) to propel the growth of gamified non-fungible tokens (NFTs) towards mainstream adoption.
NFTs have been circulated in gaming for years. Digital cards, character accessories and more have been traded by users globally, but the addition of blockchain technology to these transactions takes newer NFTs to the next level. With Splinterlands’ gaming platform already posting 600,000 transactions per day on the blockchain and Sheesha’s extensive roster of decentralized finance (DeFi) project partners, the partnership will fuel tremendous adoption into the ecosystem, disrupting the gaming industry paired with NFTs.
“Gaming and NFTs are a perfect match and we are thrilled to partner with Splinterlands who has figured this out to successfully merge the gaming world with blockchain technology,” said Saeed Hareb Al Darmaki, founder of Sheesha Finance. “Our partnership with Splinterlands will be mutually beneficial and we look forward to both of our communities earning rewards.”
“Splinterlands is excited to partner with Sheesha Finance. They are already hooked into DeFi and that ecosystem and bring with them a fantastic network of people and projects,” said Jesse “Aggroed” Reich, Splinterlands CEO & Co-Founder. “Splinterlands’ approach to gamifying staking and earning found in DeFi projects should find a natural fit with their base and represent a new opportunity for their community.”
Co-founded by visionaries and pioneers in the blockchain NFT gaming space, Jesse “Aggroed” Reich and Matt “Yabapmatt” Rosen, Splinterlands solves the problem of bringing NFTs to the mainstream gaming community by allowing for engaging battles. To date, over 60 million games have been played between users where they can earn cryptocurrencies and NFTs as part of a cohesive gaming ecosystem.
Participants will have significant influence into the governance of the Splinterlands ecosystem and will be able to earn additional rewards from mining and/or staking on existing users. Additional features will be released as part of the roadmap.
