In a statement, Mench Dizon, YGG Pilipinas Country Head, highlighted how web3 gaming has presented numerous opportunities for low-income individuals in the Philippines. Dizon emphasizes that many fellow Filipinos have managed to recover from the pandemic’s impact through web3 games. 

“We want to ensure that every community in the Philippines has an opportunity to participate in this economy. The YGG Pilipinas Roadtrip is one of the ways we can teach new, future-oriented skills to the young, tech-savvy people in our provinces. Anyone, regardless of who they are or where they live, can access web3. Our kababayan from the provinces could be the next leaders, founders and creators in this emerging industry.”

What is YGG Roadtrip?

The YGG Roadtrip is a nationwide initiative of the web3 gaming guild YGG that aims to bridge the gap between web3 technology and the Filipino community. 

According to YGG, by journeying to different regions, the Roadtrip endeavors to unite Filipino gamers and introduce them to the innovative opportunities presented by web3. 

In 2022, one of its first Roadtrip destinations was in Baguio City where it was divided into two parts: The YGG Roadtrip Tournament and YGG Event.
