WTF Is IndiGG?
We all know what gamer guilds are at this point. If you don't, you've probably been living under a rock for the past year (I'm not judging, but it's kinda weird since that's been the bulk of our conversations).
The traditional gaming guild model would never work for blockchain games because in-game items quickly become prohibitively expensive.
IndiGG is one of the good guys, keeping the professional gamer dream alive with scholarship programs to grant access to games that need north of $10,000 upfront to start playing. They're a subDAO of Yield Guild Games with the full support of Polygon.
What Makes IndiGG Unique?
IndiGG is a collaboration between Yield Guild Games (YGG) and Polygon. The mission: create P2E opportunities for Indian gamers. Why India, you ask?
Of a population of 1.38 billion, 30% are active gamers. That's around 460 million - the largest talent pool in the world.
And their motivation is unmatched. 70% of India's population is below the poverty line, living on $2 a day. The dream for a better life is intense, and work at the remote help desk of a California-headquartered company just doesn't cut it. Given the opportunity, Indian gamers will do everything needed to provide for their families. Now that's a noble cause worth sharing.
All they have to do is get good at a video game, and if that's not the dream job for someone with primarily shitty options, I don't know what is.
Imagine crafting friendships with peers, all striving for a shared goal through enjoyable means that reward participation. That dream is already a reality. And the best part for everyone under 18? You can shush your parents when they yell at you for playing games all day. Kids have so much power, time, and energy. Sending them to real work is unethical. Getting paid to have fun is the dream for both parent and child.
As a guild, IndiGG provides the assets scholars will need to play, win, and earn. Most who join are new to crypto, so IndiGG educates and prepares scholars for cryptocurrency's ruthless PvP dynamics with community events and educational content. It's like school, except cool and helpful.
IndiGG first offered scholarships for 4 games: Axie Infinity, Nyan Heroes, Pegaxy, and Fancy Birds. This list of games is growing faster than genetically modified cattle.
New recruits include:
- WonderHero: A turn-based JRPG anime game. IndiGG purchased 220 "WonderBoxes". The boxes contain items to equip characters and make them stronger in battles.
- CyBall: An NFT-based football game. IndiGG bought 150 CyBall packs. You redeem packs for a Genesis Cybloc NFT, with which you play the game.
- Sipher: A blockchain MOBA game. IndiGG will invest $25,000 in their upcoming Buru NFT collection. These NFTs will allow scholars to play all game modes when the game releases.
- Synesis One: A blockchain platform that gamifies data collection. IndiGG onboarded 50 scholars, with plans to make them 100.
- Crypto Unicorns: IndiGG added 240 land parcels to the guild vault.
IndiGG more than doubled its available games in one month. That's a sign of things to come.
New scholars are first introduced to Axie Infinity. This will serve as a probation period. Scholars have to prove they're dedicated enough to play, learn, and earn. They'll be able to compete in weekly and monthly tournaments to earn more rewards. Those who display potential have the chance to become professional IndiGG e-athletes.
A large portion of new game scholarships are reserved for Axie scholars. You'll be able to get scholarships for other games too, but the chances are slim. Being an Axie scholar raises your chances of winning scholarships for other games. The distribution of new game scholarships will happen based on:
- Axie scholarship;
- IndiGG Batch holders;
- Participation in Axie tournaments;
- Levelling up on Discord;
- Holding multiple POAPs (non-transferable NFT badges).
IndiGG is hungry, and it's looking to acquire other guilds operating in India. They already had two meals, but for a group of hungry founders, all that does is stimulate their appetite.
They've already absorbed MUS guild and Gamify India. They had 70+ scholars in Axie Infinity and over 400 Axie NFTs. IndiGG onboarded all their scholars, mods, and community managers.
IndiGG's search for micro guilds in India continues. They offer benefits like:
- Access to the YGG and Polygon ecosystems;
- Building a regional team at IndiGG, where a share of the earnings is given back to the scholars and the team who manage them;
- Strong marketing and distribution channels, including influencers, traditional gaming, and streaming companies.
What's The Utility Of The IndiGG Token?
$INDI will serve as a governance token and economic incentive for users. Holding the $INDI token grants benefits:
- Having an active role in future decision-making of the DAO;
- IndiGG Token Holder Tournaments;
- Access to vaults;
- Unique discord channel for dedicated token holders to participate in AMAs and conversations on future game partnerships;
- Unlock access to different guild enablement tools built natively or incubated by IndiGG.
