Women in web3 gaming / P2E

Hi ladies!

Wondering if anyone here works in or is connected to the blockchain gaming space, or web2 game studios interested in making the leap to web3.

I'm Head of Partnerships at Scenius, at a startup focused on developing infrastructure to support blockchain games, and looking to connect with others in the space, as well as learn about how various games are approaching things.

Cheers,

Julia

Very interested in P2E games. I was very surprised how Axie Infinity is so popular in the Philippines https://www.cnbc.com/2021/05/14/people-in-philippines-earn-cryptocurrency-playing-nft-video-game-axie-infinity.html

P2E has definitely gotten a lot of traction in Southeast Asia (especially the Philippines), as well as Venezuela and some other areas in Latam. I've spoken to a few scholars in both of those countries who aspire to change their lives (move their family out of Venezuela to a safer place, made enough money to buy their first PC which they used to level up their earnings and change their family's financial situation, upgraded from player to manager within their organization and was then able to turn around and help educate others on how to do the same, etc.)One of the things that's really important to us is building something that can help enable financial access for all in this space!

Somehow I missed your reply @JuliaXu. It's interesting that you mention Venezuela since I lived and studied there for 14 years and my parents still live there.I'm very interested in how you help enable financial access for those in the Global South.Thanks, Patricia

The first product we're building is a rental marketplace & protocol specifically for the web3/P2E gaming space. We find that often the people who purchase these types of NFTs don't have plans to use them, or don't have time to constantly use them, while players (especially in developing nations) who are interested in using these assets can't afford them. We'll have a two sided marketplace that will help connect these two sides and open up access
