Polyient Labs, an early-stage startup incubator focused on launching blockchain-adjacent businesses, recently announced the launch of Polyient Games, the first investment firm and startup ecosystem wholly dedicated to growing the NFT industry
According to the announcement, Polyient Games will consist of both a core investment body and a chain-agnostic ecosystem that functions as a collaborative environment consisting of portfolio startups, stakeholders and third-party organizations
Polyient Games will be focused on the following areas of investment:
- Blockchain gaming
- Decentralized applications (dapps)
- Developer tools
- Crypto art
- Virtual reality
- Virtual land
- Decentralized finance (DeFi)
- Real-world asset tokenization
Polyient has already made a push into the industry with investments in Cargo, a San Francisco-based startup building scalable NFT minting solutions, and Blockade Games, a New York-based blockchain game development studio currently working on a cyberpunk RPG called Neon District.
To kickstart its new ecosystem, Polyient Games is introducing a new take on founder’s tokens with Polyient Games Founder’s Keys (PGFKs), a new collection of NFTs that will provide holders with varying levels of lifetime benefits across the entire Polyient Games Ecosystem.
“PGFKs will provide early adopters, including gamers and NFT collectors, with a number of unique perks that will evolve alongside the growth of Polyient Games,” reads the announcement. “This means that instead of holding a key that functions within one game or a piece of land that is tied to a single platform, PGFK holders will enjoy unique rewards from across all games, products and platforms that exist within our ecosystem.”
PGFKs will be available for purchase in an upcoming sale with more information set to be released in the coming weeks.
