GUILD ACCELERATOR PROGRAM

Overview

In partnership with Animoca Brands, Brinc has launched a virtual program helping startups to build Play-to-Earn (P2E) Gaming Guilds globally. 2021 was the breakout year for blockchain gaming with the phenomenal rise of Axie Infinity and gaming guilds such as Yield Guild Games, Avocado Guild, Merit Circle, etc. The Guild Accelerator Program will be an integral part of fostering the P2E growth by sharing innovation, best practices and scaling fundamentals to optimize the performance and growth of gaming guilds. 

The revolution in gaming is set against the backdrop of the rise of AI and Automation which will result in a seismic societal shift with many industries and jobs being adversely impacted as a result. Our view is that managing digital assets inside games and metaverses will be a major source of income for hundreds of millions of people in the developing world helping to offset the inevitable job losses from AI and Automation.

The Guild Accelerator will identify, mentor, and invest in best-in-class early stage (single digit thousands of players/scholars) gaming guilds across various geographies, game types and methodologies in the blockchain/NFT gaming space that are growing the Play-to-Earn revolution and ultimately enabling milllions of people to earn a living or meaningfully supplement their incomes globally. 

Join the leading pioneer in accelerating Play-to-Earn across the multiverse and the metaverse. Do well while doing good. Guild Accelerator participants get access and support from the best network of mentors and experts available.
