Cyball, a football-themed play-to-earn mobile game, just raised $1.8 million in the seed funding round. This round was led by Bitkraft Ventures, with the contribution of many other notable brands. The Cyball backers include Animoca Brands, Impossible Finance, Ascensive Assets, Merit Circle, and others. As presently constructed, the mobile game operates on both Solana and Binance Smart Chain.
Basically, players need to build their team of CyBlocs to compete with players around the world. The game is sort of a combination of Soccer Manager and an Axie-like trading card game. All CyBlocs are NFTs, and have several characteristics that differentiates one from the other. The combination of their traits, class, and skills are the determining factors of the CyBlocs’ performance on the field.
This P2E mobile game provides a casual setting where players can earn rewards. The NFTs can level up as they battle it out on the field. There are also tactic cards in which players can use to boost their chances of winning. Furthermore, players can also create new CyBlocs by using existing ones as mentors. As players and scholars improve their respective teams, they can then register to compete in leagues and exclusive tournaments to earn more rewards.
Their ecosystem includes an NFT marketplace for players to trade various Cyball assets. They also have the CyLoans platform to facilitate automated scholarships for the proprietary CyBlocs. Lastly, the company has put in place CyDex for the community to trade the Cyball tokens ($CBT) internally.
Along with other P2E projects, we are happy to see more parties journey together towards developing the NFT gaming space.
