AB de Villiers, a South African cricketer, has announced a collaboration with Myria, a blockchain gaming firm. They will release a new play-and-earn cricket game as a result of their collaboration.
AB de Villiers, a South African cricketer, has announced a partnership with blockchain gaming firm Myria to develop a mobile-based cricket game. The game is set to release later this year, with players able to download it for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store starting in Q2 2023.
Myria will be the first celebrity-endorsed cricket blockchain game to include blockchain play-and-earn models as well as other features like NFTs. The AB de Villiers-backed game will also be accessible only on mobile devices.
According to the Myria team, the game seeks to introduce blockchain gaming to millions of cricket enthusiasts. The collaboration between AB de Villiers and Myria is anticipated to help the game develop a brand and community.
AB de Villiers remarked of the matter, "It's always been about cricket." It's always been about putting on a show for the crowds. I'm always searching for new ways to improve the game, and developing a blockchain-enabled cricket game on the Myria platform is the next logical step.
Myria, which was founded in 2021, is a blockchain gaming development platform that promises to bring a variety of blockchain games to reality. The gaming firm creates its own free-to-play AAA games while also offering a full-stack solution for partner studios to use in the Myria ecosystem.
Brendan Duhamel, Myria's Head of Blockchain, stated, "It's evident that we've entered a new age for gaming." AB de Villiers, a cricket legend and inventor, is leading the charge to bring cricket's popularity into the digital sphere. Cricket and cryptocurrency both have the benefit of attracting very energized and enthusiastic populations. AB has put his faith in Myria's technology to bring his blockchain-enabled cricket game to life, and we'll usher in a future of empowered gamers and communities together.
While the game is based on a play-and-earn premise, the team feels that this isn't the only reason why players should like it. Myria and AB de Villiers' cricket game intends to introduce joy to blockchain gaming, where profit isn't the primary motivation. The game's goal is to get people truly enthusiastic to play while also creating a community around it.
