Months after it was first announced by Coins.ph CEO Wei Zhou, the cryptocurrency wallet is finally launching their game center called. “Coins Arcade,” which brands itself as a “new way to play and earn using the Coins app” as it allows users to indulge in both Web2 and Web3 gaming where they can play to earn tokens.
“Today, we’re excited to launch Coins Arcade to offer users the ultimate gaming experience. Currently only available to Coins.ph users, Coins Arcade allows users to earn tokens from playing games,” Coins announced.
Zhou first talked about releasing a game center within their platform last July during a press briefing in Conquest 2022. He even noted during his talk that “as long as you have the Coins.ph app, you can start playing, you don’t have to go through these hoops. Then if you like the game, then you can redeem your money out and buy NFTs of the game.” (Read more: Conquest Event Recap: Coins.ph CEO Reveals NFT, P2E Game Center Plans)
For the development of the gaming center, Coins.ph revealed that they have partnered with Google Play for the last few months to build its fiat-crypto bridge for everyday gamers and lifestyle users. According to them, the initiative is part of their plans to expand and build on the gaming ecosystem.
Currently, Coins Arcade is supporting one game called “MetaDerby.” It is a competitive free-to-play, play-to-earn horse-racing game built on the Avalanche (AVAX) blockchain network. To kickstart their gaming journey, players can get a free non-fungible token (NFT) by completing beginner missions on MetaDerby’s website.
MetaDerby is an NFT horse racing game where players can earn tokens through its features, such as horse racing, breeding horses, buying land, building on farms, and hosting races.
“MetaDerby is the first of many games to be added to Coins Arcade and in the coming months, you’ll be able to enjoy the best Web2 and Web3 gaming titles directly from your Coins app,” Coins.ph wrote, assuring that there are more games to come in the platform soon.
