MPL to Launch a New Web3 Gaming Venture - GGX
According to reports, Mobile Premier League (MPL) is launching a new web3 gaming venture, GGX, as the gaming unicorn taps the play-to-earn (P2E) gaming sector.
GGX is expected to be an in-game non fungible token (NFT) marketplace that will offer a platform for owning and trading in-game assets, like an exchange.
Besides, MPL plans to raise $10-$15 million through a simple agreement for future tokens (SAFTs) from investors including Spartan Capital, a digital asset management firm and Polygon, valuing the startup at about $200 - $250 million, as per reports.
MPL will likely control 20 percent of the native token’s supply. In P2E gaming, players are rewarded with cryptos, which they can exchange for real money.
According to reports, the aim of GGX is to have multiple games and game developers on its platform. Players who acquire assets across any game on the GGX platform could freely trade them with other users on GGX.
Reports suggest that, the platform will allow any game developer to monetize games using the GGX software toolkit.
MPL has entered in to the unicorn club or privately held companies with a valuation of $1 billion or more - last September at a valuation of $2.3 billion
