Meta World: My City Gets Official Community Channels

Users can win MBX tokens by signing up for the official Discord channel

Mobile game developer Netmarble is opening community channels on Discord, Twitter and Facebook for its virtual board game, Meta World: My City. Formerly titled Let’s Get Rich: Meta World, the digital board game allows users to purchase virtual real estate in the metaverse based on real-world locations. Meta World: My City will be part of the gaming blockchain ecosystem MBX.

To celebrate the launch of Meta World: My City’s community channels, Netmarble is hosting several events.

“We know that everyone is waiting for the new game for MARBLEX ecosystem,” writes MARBLEX in a Medium post. “In order to repay you for your long wait, we have prepared two airdrop events with the opening of the [Meta World: My City] communities.”

 The Official Community Opening Celebration Airdrop Event offers players opportunities to earn MBX tokens by completing ‘missions’ like joining the official Discord channel. The Official Discord Channel Registration Event will award three participants with 100 MBX tokens. Users can participate in both events through January 31.

According to a press release, the MBX blockchain gaming ecosystem encourages “organic engagement from players” and will reward them for participating. To further promote the community channels, Netmarble recently posted a Meta World: My City promotional video on YouTube.

Gaming on the Blockchain

While certainly nowhere near as popular as traditional gaming, blockchain gaming continues to inch its way toward becoming mainstream entertainment. The creator of Sims City and The Sims, Will Wright, is currently developing VoxVerse, a blockchain game. Similarly, metaverse contender Microsoft is backing blockchain title StarHeroes. The company gave the game’s developers a grant and access to Azure PlayFab.

Big names in traditional gaming have also come out in support of blockchain titles. Last year, the president of Square Enix, Yosuke Matsuda, stated he wants the company to explore NFTs and blockchain gaming. Additionally, EA CEO Andrew Wilson has said that blockchain gaming is part of the industry‘s future.
