A long-awaited love letter to all our supporters

DateDate14 Mar 2023

๐Ÿ’™ Dear Versians ๐Ÿ’™, as we approach the anniversary of our project, letโ€™s take a moment to reflect on the progress and growth we achieved. We continuously evolved and brought new features and improvements to the platform, holding the belief that good web3 games will eventually emerge, and the gaming community will start appreciating the value of digital asset ownership.

๐Ÿ“… In April, we launched our platform and offered game discovery paired with necessary in-depth articles detailing information about the project status, gameplay, and team developing it. Versians participated in various game events, AMAs, and game contests. The real believers staked our token $VERSA, getting a 40% APY. We constantly grew our network and forged new strategic relationships with potential partners for our Liquidity solutions.

In the summer we kept really busy, working on improving the game discovery experience, releasing the Polygon Gaming Hub with QuickSwap, and focusing on developing the business services. The result of all this work was released in Q3 of 2022 with a brand-new UI that the community could enjoy. The revamped interface offered:

  • ๐ŸŽฎ Game Discovery with titles split by 3 main categories (Released, Upcoming, and Free to Play) and by Quick Filters (RPG, MMO and other genres or platform like Mobile Ready to Play)

  • ๐Ÿ” Browse feature to narrow down titles by Chain, Platform, State, and Genre

  • ๐Ÿ“š New game cards focused on showing the game Status (Released vs Upcoming) and Genre

  • ๐Ÿš€ New game page with a structured layout presenting

    • project description to better evaluate a game

    • navigation to social channels to get direct updates

    • direct link to play and steps to get started to not feel confused or overwhelmed

    • trading for purchasing the game token required to initiate gameplay

We are very proud of Trading feature as it delivers the finest experience to users. The utility of all the game tokens is explained and the suggested swap is only for the game, chain, and stable currencies out. We filter out the irrelevant tokens, ensuring a seamless experience.

  • ๐Ÿ’œ Polygon-curated content for QuickSwap Gaming Hub highlighting the great projects of the Polygon network

๐Ÿ Internally we worked on getting out:

  • Standards for ensuring only good quality games will reach the community

  • Enjoyable activities to take part in with surprise rewards

  • Optimisations to ensure we have a stable and secure platform

  • Good Treasury management for risk mitigation and yield generation during challenging times

  • Business Services

๐Ÿ‘‰ We have to stop for a more in-depth review of our business services as this is the foundational layer that covers our operational expenses and gives us the freedom to develop the best experience a gamer can get on a gaming platform.

We introduced customised liquidity solutions or Liquidity as a Service (LaaS) to help game studios become more sustainable. Getting liquidity support for a game token translates as: capital efficiency when launching/ migrating to another chain or redeploying capital for other needs, time to focus on development and in-game economics, reduced price volatility, more credibility in the project, and more investments.

We successfully carried out publisher duties, beautifully presenting games and their activity (streaming, tournaments, studio updates, and other events) to our global gaming audience.

๐ŸŽ„ By the end of the year, we had a simple and easy-to-navigate platform with the biggest and cleanest library of web3 / NFT games (200+ and counting). Steps to get started and play the games. Ability to Trade digital assets directly from the game page and continuously grow your digital portfolio. Without a doubt, these remarkable results are a testament to the hard work and commitment of our amazing team, which we are happy and proud to be part of. Each member has brought their unique skills and expertise to the table, and we have worked together seamlessly to achieve our goals.

๐Ÿ•› Since the beginning of 2023, we kept the development pace and commitment to improving the end-user experience. In the past year, many games have discontinued development, leading us to start a content auditing process to ensure that our users can continue to find accurate data. Additionally, we've launched a long-awaited feature - Versa Earn, where now you can earn rewards from depositing liquidity. On the business side, we have managed to ๐Ÿšจ close 3 Liquidity deals ๐Ÿšจ, which has proven very useful for the projects helping them launch on new chain or DEX while also being profitable for us.

๐Ÿ†• But the year just started, and we have many features in the works ๐ŸŽจ (NFTs, News, Better Events) and many goals set to achieve. Selecting games based on genuine reviews, starting playing easily, finding a home for connecting socially, trading your digital assets, and continuously being challenged, and rewarded, in Quests, Tournaments, and other interesting activities are just some of the significant development areas that weโ€™ll focus on.

๐Ÿ“Œ As digital ownership gaming continues to grow in popularity and complexity, VersaGames will build new features to meet the changing needs of gamers around the world and expand partnerships to become a major player in the gaming industry for years to come. Our anniversary marks a year of significant progress and growth, and we are happy to have shared it with you โ˜€๏ธ๐ŸŽ‰.

๐Ÿ‘ฅ Stay tuned and keep us updated on the things you want to see on the platform. Weโ€™d love to hear from you in our Discord! โ™ฅ๏ธ
