Homegrown web3 gaming guild Yield Guild Games (YGG) announced its partnership with LongHash Ventures, a prominent web3 investment firm and accelerator known for its governance insights and development of successful web3 projects.

Here are the specifics of the partnership:

  • LongHash Ventures has become a YGG token holder.
  • LongHash Ventures will actively contribute to shaping YGG’s guild protocol.
  • The venture will also assist in enhancing YGG tokenomics, particularly in the areas of questing and on-chain guild progression.

“Humans are social creatures, hence on-chain guilds are a key missing piece that will accelerate web3 gaming adoption. In retrospect, it will seem obvious, and inevitable. People want to find their tribe, and YGG will be the tribe of tribes, the guild of guilds.”

Wei Shi Khai, Co-Founder, LongHash Ventures

Wei said he is looking forward to YGG to once again lead the charge by “reimagining guilds, questing and social gaming.”

YGG highlighted that its partnership with LongHash further cements its role as a leading guild in the web3 gaming landscape, focusing on innovating systems that facilitate connections and game discovery for players. 

“There have been a lot of changes since YGG was established, but the core was always to become a platform for forming, coordinating and scaling on-chain guilds. This partnership with LongHash Ventures is invaluable to YGG’s goals as a guild of guilds.”

Dizon emphasized that the collaboration allows YGG to expedite web3 adoption in emerging markets, offering prospects within this internet-centric economy. He also noted how the atmosphere has been encouraging, with anticipation building for our forthcoming endeavors. 

“We’re excited to see the fruit that will come from working together in 2024 and beyond,” he added.

In a BitPinas webcast interview last year, when Wei was asked about their biggest investing miss, the co-founder singled out not investing in YGG when the opportunity first arose:

We’ve known Gabby for many years, and we helped him in pitch events and introductions, but when we had an opportunity to invest, it didn’t fit into our criteria back then, so that was a huge miss for us.
