Moonstake today announces the formation of the Moonstake
Gaming Guild (MSGG) as the staking provider makes its
full-scale entry into the GameFi market.
GameFi is a
term combining the words “Game” and “Finance”, referring to
games where you can earn from playing. Specifically, in-game
currency, tokens, characters, and items backed by blockchain
technology can be bought and sold by players on crypto asset
exchanges and marketplaces. GameFi is a market that has been
growing rapidly, led by the “Axie Infinity” GameFi project
which has been especially popular in Southeast Asia since
2021. The GameFi domain is expected to exceed $68 billion*
and is attracting widespread attention even outside of the
crypto asset industry.
GameFi is creating new
businesses with its innovative model and Moonstake will help
create new jobs by establishing and operating gaming guilds.

generating revenue as the community of GameFi players
expands in the Philippines and other Southeast Asian
countries. In this way, the creation of a new revenue model
through GameFi has already been creating numerous new jobs
and helping to build players’ economic power.

Mitsuru Tezuka, Founder of Moonstake,
says: “We are very pleased to be able to explore new areas
of business for Moonstake via the MoonstakeGamingGuild. With
so many people still looking for work around the world,
GameFi, a new and exciting industry which creates jobs for
many people, has always been one of the things I wanted to
challenge myself with. I have been fortunate to have a great
opportunity to create and operate guilds at JobTribes, and I
hope to use this opportunity to discover the various
possibilities of GameFi that can synergize with Moonstake to
bring even more value to users
