TCG World, the world’s largest blockchain metaverse and NFT platform, has announced a partnership with stock giant WallStreetBets.
Since the beginning of the year, the WallStreetBets movement has been defying traditional finance by enlisting a legion of retail investors to advance the ethos of financial democracy through the use of decentralized tradable assets on the blockchain.
Now, through a partnership with TCG World, the massive online retail investor group that shook the stock markets with the GameStop frenzy is betting big on the metaverse.
What exactly is TCG World?
TCG World is Binance Smart Chain’s largest open world metaverse. It is a play-to-earn game with its own story that progresses as the user spends more time in the game. TCG World allows users to invest in virtual real estate, hunt for NFT collectibles, earn TCGCoin 2.0, and begin a virtual career while exploring the metaverse.
TCG World includes thousands of different collectible NFTs that can be purchased, sold, or traded on the TCG World marketplace. Everything a player purchases or owns in the game is an NFT, including virtual real estate, vehicles, pets, player avatars, and trophies. The showpiece is an 800 square kilometers virtual world divided into 100,000 virtual plots available for purchase. Anyone can buy one of these virtual pots and build on it in preparation for the metaverse’s mainstream adoption.
The ecosystem’s gaming component includes an online collectible game in which users can collect and populate their virtual worlds with mythical NFT creatures scattered throughout the metaverse. Because of their scarcity in production and utility in game, certain NFTs found in the metaverse can be valuable. Sprites are flying horses, baby dragons, and eggshell monsters that can be sold, traded, bred, or evolved for PVP battles in the TCG World arenas.
WallStreetBets (WSB) Collaboration
Jaime Rogozinski, the founder of WallStreetBet, has been working behind the scenes with TCG Gaming for the past four months to assist TCG in creating a unique metaverse experience for their community. Rogozisnki brings a wealth of experience in building and developing online communities, having founded WallStreetBets in 2012 and overseeing the growth of the online retail investor group to a membership of over 700,000 investors.
Rogozinski is also a serial entrepreneur with experience launching technology and financial firms. WallStreetBets has already purchased a plot of land in the TCG World metaverse and hopes to entice investors in the WSB community to join them.
“We are very excited to welcome both WallStreetBet Communities into our metaverse,” said David Evans, CEO of TCG Gaming. Our vision is to create a virtual world in which users can learn, earn, create, and socialize. The addition of WallStreetBets and their community will have a significant impact on how we socially connect in our TCG World metaverse.”
The WallStreetBets Facebook group is also working with TCG World to expand the metaverse. Together, the two WSB groups bring over 1 million retail traders to the virtual world.
Conclusion: Defining the Metaverse’s Future
With the help of blockchain technology and NFTs, the Metaverse is making the impossible possible.
With collaborations like the one formed between the two WallStreetBets groups and TCG, it is clear that we are witnessing a retail investor exodus from traditional finance and into the metaverse.
“A truly decentralized Web 3.0 metaverse-based internet will solve the centralized monopoly and manipulation issue that plagues the current state of the internet,” says Rogozinski.
At its core, the metaverse is envisioned as the next step in the evolution of the internet, bringing to life a virtual world in which people from all over the world can connect, interact, play, and work online.
Already, the TCG Gaming team intends to expand its metaverse beyond gaming, with users able to work and earn a living in TCG World. The presale platinum and diamond land parcels have already sold out, indicating that virtual real estate is becoming popular. TCG Gaming now intends to launch presale gold plots of land in its metaverse on November 4th, 2021.
