Join the game leader with GamesBeat and Facebook Gaming to participate in the 2nd GamesBeat & Facebook Gaming Summit. GamesBeat: To Metaverse 2 from January 25th to 27th, 2022. See event details.
Moonray is a “metaverse game” built on Bitcoin via the stack, bringing smart contracts to Bitcoin and enabling the construction of applications that benefit from the security of the Bitcoin network. NFT took off this year. They use the security and transparency of the blockchain’s digital ledger to authenticate unique digital items.
Animoca Brands led the round, with participation from other top angels and funds such as GBV Capital, Metavest Capital, LD Capital and Lucid Blue Ventures.
The funds will be used for research and development to build an NFT marketplace that allows players to buy, sell and trade unique in-game collectibles, weapons and skins. Moonray aims to have a real financial stake in what the player owns and to build an economy where players can buy digital items using Bitcoin and ultimately credit cards.
Rodrigo Etcheto, CEO of Moonray PBC, said in an email to GamesBeat that the company has 25 employees and aims to grow to more than 50.
Moonray wants to provide a unique gaming experience that not only allows players to choose their destiny, but also allows them to step into the galactic world where they can own their destiny.
Moonray PBC will use this money to build an NFT marketplace, allowing players to buy, sell and trade unique in-game collectibles, weapons and skins.
By combining the NFT Marketplace with the game itself, Moonray enables an in-game digital economy where users own digital items and can easily trade between other players. Players will be able to purchase digital items using Bitcoin and ultimately credit cards. Moonray is built on Bitcoin via the stack and helps to settle transactions on the Bitcoin network.
“Building a game in the Metaverse isn’t just about putting something in VR or AR. There must be an economy that can have a real financial stake in what the player owns,” Etcheto said. Stated in a statement. “Players have found a detour to exchange digital items in the past. We aim to make it easier for players to exchange and sell items to each other. Our market is complete. When functioning on, we have Lightning Network integration, BTC payments, and NFTs with the ability to earn BTC yields. “
Yat Siu, Executive Chairman of Animoca Brands, said in a statement: Moonray is a pioneer in this change, building a distant future RPG experience that most players have never seen on a blockchain. We are very excited about the possibilities Moonray is demonstrating in building this ambitious multiplayer Triple A experience. “
The Moonray and Moonray NFT Marketplace will have early access to some players in March 2022.
Moonray PBC uses Unreal Engine and Stacks to create games. The game features high-end visuals, algorithmic asset generation, compelling stories, Bitcoin integration, player-versus-player, and co-op combat.
“We wanted to bring the game to a new creative direction in a surrealistic style that hasn’t happened yet, and to introduce a token economy that enhances gameplay rather than the focus of gameplay,” Etcheto said. I am saying. “We have a best-in-class creative team and they are building a world with very deep stories and folklore. We are creating new intellectual property that can be expanded over the years. We believe in a carefully selected approach to building the Metaverse so that we have a clear artistic vision. “
