Introducing the Play-To-Earn Incubator

This post was originally published on Decentraland

Play-to-earn, as demonstrated by the success of Axie Infinity, Gods Unchained and Zed Run, is the hottest new trend in digital gaming, offering tantalising rewards for players and, in some cases, a source of income.

Decentraland, with its fully-fledged SDK, a vibrant community, and paired with a smooth Layer 2 integration (Polygon) is the perfect setting for the development of a P2E ecosystem.

Indeed, WonderMine, a P2E game in which players mine meteors to collect loot and craft materials that can be turned into Decentraland Wearables and other virtual goods, has proven itself one of Decentraland’s most popular experiences.

The Play-To-Earn Incubator seeks to capitalize on this success and support new games in the metaverse.

Seeking the next generation of gaming talent

The Decentraland Foundation will be scouting for and accepting applications from a maximum of three teams – either already operating inside Decentraland and external to the platform – and granting each up to 60k USD plus LAND leases. The Foundation will also:

  • match teams with a network of mentors and advisors
  • follow up with teams regarding their progress and coordinate the rollout of funds
  • communicate progress updates to the Decentraland community
  • ensure that first working MVP is delivered by teams within three months

With a soon-to-be-announced partner coming on board to match the Decentraland Foundation’s investment, there is the potential for six teams to be funded, meaning a significant influx of P2E games hitting the metaverse in 2022.

How to get involved

If you think your team has what it takes to join the Play-to-Earn Incubator, send a proposal via email to [email protected], and include the following information:

  • Description of the game concept
