Gaia CEO Josh Bull said:

Gaia Everworld is part of the next-gen of gaming being built on the blockchain. It gives players full ownership of their in-game characters, and rewards them for engaging in ‘play-to-earn’ models of gaming which have become quite popular in the crypto space this year. Gaia Everworld is truly an immersive, multi-region fantasy world in which players can create their own kingdoms, explore different lands, while collecting, breeding and battling other players, referred to as the Gaia Legionnaires.

A Polygon spokesperson remarked:

Blockchain-powered gaming has really taken the crypto world by storm in 2021. These games are truly unique because they allow players to take on a more significant role in the gaming process. Not only is the gameplay quite interactive and engaging, but players are able to effectively participate in a tokenized, digital economy that allows them to earn sizable returns. We’re firm believers in the play-to-earn business model, which is one of the main reasons why we decided to invest in Gala Everworld. Our team is looking forward to becoming a key contributor to this fast-evolving sector.
