Yield Guild Games, a play-to-earn gaming guild, has recently forged a partnership with Nuseir Yassin’s (widely known as Nas Daily) online community platform Nas Academy to launch the online learning platform Web3 Metaversity. The platform aims to educate newly onboarded, crypto newbies and anyone who wants to learn about web3, blockchain, cryptocurrency, and the metaverse as a whole.
The program of Web3 Metaversity will be led by YGG Pilipinas Country Manager Luis Buenaventura and will be hosted in Nas.io, the community learning portal of Nas Academy.
“At Metaversity, we want to help the newest metaverse residents find their way in this exciting new world. We know that there’s a lot of jargon to learn and some abstract concepts that can be challenging to wrap your head around, so we’ll start with the basics and explain everything in simple terms. Once you’ve got the fundamentals figured out, you can decide which specialty track you want to take – from crypto/NFT trading to chat server management to content creation. And when you’re ready, we can start connecting you with jobs and income opportunities directly.” —Luis Buenaventura, YGG Country Manager
To be able to participate in the program, an applicant must own a YGG Guild Badge NFT—YGG Guild Badge NFT holders are automatically qualified— which will give them access to the Web3 Metaversity’s Discord server and a video library on various Web3 topics. The YGG Guild Badge NFT can be minted for free on the YGG website.
Members of the Metaversity will enjoy privileges such as meeting and interacting with the crypto community within the platform, free courses on Web3 topics needed to land Web3 careers, monthly live events with guest speakers, and weekly live sessions. The special guest speakers include YGG co-founder Gabby Dizon, YGG Pilipinas Minister of Information Celeste Rodriguez, and YGG Head of Esports Mike Ovecka, among others.
“Building an educational community for the beginners in the crypto space has been a dream of mine for a long time, and I’m supremely excited to be able to help facilitate people’s first steps into this new world. Working closely with Nas Academy Philippines ensures that the courses are short, fun, and jam-packed with actionable information. We can’t wait to share it with our respective communities, as well as the crypto-curious mainstream audiences,” Buenaventura said in a statement.
Currently, there are 3 upcoming live events slated for September; Community Time hosted by RJ Syed on the 14th, Virtual Launch Party with YGG mentors hosted by Luis Buenaventura on the 21st, and Market Update by RJ Syed on the 28th.
In a media release, they noted that through the partnership YGG will be able to combine its Web3 expertise with Nas Academy’s engaging storytelling and high-quality production to empower communities while giving them the best possible learning experience.
Moreover, they highlighted that with Web3 Metaversity, the YGG community can pursue careers in Web3 through a range of different roles, such as community managers, content creators, cryptocurrency traders, NFT artists, or Web2 specialists in the Web3 space.
“We believe Web3 will change the world. It is the best opportunity for people to grow and own a piece of the internet, and together with YGG, we are so excited to provide all the education needed to turn somebody from zero to hero in the Web3 space.” –Nuseir Yassin, founder and CEO of Nas Academy.
Jacq Lim, country head of Nas Academy Philippines, also expressed her view towards the partnership.
“It’s a personal mission for me to give Filipinos access to the best education and community that will help them grab those life-changing career opportunities. That is why, at Nas Academy, we are proud to partner with YGG to make entering and growing in Web3 fun, exciting, and full of practical learning. We can’t wait to see more people thrive in the jobs of the future, and Web3 can make this promise a reality for many Filipinos,” she stated.
The learning platform will be accessible through the Nas.io Web3 Metaversity portal.
