South African cricketer AB de Villiers has partnered with blockchain gaming company Myria Gaming Studio to launch a play-to-earn cricket game. The mobile-exclusive game marks the first celebrity-backed cricket blockchain game that integrates play-to-earn models and NFTs.
“It’s always been about cricket,” said De Villiers. “It’s always been about entertaining the crowds. I’m constantly looking for ways to change the game and building my blockchain-enabled cricket game on the Myria platform is the next step for me. The main thing is that there is no compromise. My cricket game will be fun and exciting just like a match on the field, but it will also be equitable and empower digital asset ownership. Myria shares my commitment and together we will bring new cricket experiences to my fans.”
Since play-to-earn titles are often criticized for lack of content, Myria wants people to know that the still-untitled game will be fun and well-designed. The company said its goal is to get players genuinely excited to play and create a culture around the game while doing so.
The game is expected to launch in 2023.
