Despite significant efforts, blockchain gaming struggles to gain traction among traditional gamers. That could soon change as new platforms emerge that aim to make Web3 gaming easy to get into.  

One of these is Myria, a blockchain gaming platform for free-to-play games with zero gas fees. Its native token, MYRIA, launched on OKX on Thursday.

MYRIA will be the platform’s utility token, powering in-game purchases and governance. 

To celebrate the listing, Myria also started a 45 million token airdrop to encourage and reward early adopters. 

Myria: Making Web3 Gaming Accessible

Myria aims to boost adoption by making Web3 gaming as simple and easy as traditional gaming. At the same time, it will also provide unique features that are Web3’s unique selling points.  

For instance, its games feature in-game NFTs, allowing players to own and trade their in-game assets. Moreover, the games are free to join and have zero gas fees, making it easier for players to get started.  This approach dramatically reduces the barrier to entry compared to many Web3 games, some of which require upwards of $200 in initial investment

The approach appears to be working, according to the company’s figures. Myria co-founder and Head of Blockchain Brendan Duhamel claims that Myria has already onboarded one million users to Web3 gaming. 

“Our goal is to make it easier for both players and game studios to enter the Web3 space,” Duhamel emphasized. 

Currently, Myria hosts a wide variety of games on its platform, ranging from RPGs, and strategy, to sports. These games are built by third-party developers with the platform’s custom-tailored Software Development Kit (SDK). 

Titles include Metarush, Block Royale, Moonville Farms, Mr. 360 Cricket, Pokerlook Game, and many more.
