Coinsilium Group Limited: Coinsilium signs SAFT and advisory agreement with P2E gaming group GGs.io
London UK, 22 June 2022 - Coinsilium Group Limited (AQSE: COIN) (OTCQB: CINGF), the Blockchain and Open Finance venture builder, is pleased to announce its appointment as advisors to Delaware-registered GGs.io Company (“GGs.io”) and that it has entered into a Simple Agreement for Future Tokens (“SAFT”) with GGs.io to purchase USD100,000 of future GGs.io tokens, the utility token of the GGs.io gaming ecosystem. GGs.io aims to build Latin America’s first blockchain gaming hub while promoting Web3 education and social mobility.
- Coinsilium enters a SAFT for USD100,000 for future GGs.io digital tokens to be distributed over a vesting period.
- Coinsilium to provide strategic advisory services for GGs.io on token economics, growth strategy and partnerships.
- The GGs.io founding team members have contributed in the build of successful e-sports ventures in Latam, launching and operating successful communities and events for brands such as Razer, Red Bull, Claro Gaming, ViacomCBS, Supercell, among others over the past 5 years.
- GGs.io has been accepted as the first gaming project to join the Origami program, an accelerator for Decentralised Autonomous Organisations (“DAOs”) operated and founded by Y Combinator alumni and founding members of Orange DAO.
- GGs.io estimates the market opportunity in its target region at 300m gamers.
Eddy Travia, CEO of Coinsilium, commented:
“One of the earliest and better known successes in blockchain gaming and Play-to-Earn (“P2E”) has been A16Z-backed Axie Infinity which peaked at 2.7 million daily active users in November 2021, coinciding with its token price all-time high (‘AXS’) on the back of a raise at a USD3bn valuation by its creators, Vietnam-based Sky Mavis. Despite AXS lower performance today, there are clear similarities between Axie Infinity’s original market - Southeast Asia and mainly The Philippines - and the Latin American or ‘Latam’ market. These similarities are: weak and volatile currencies, high levels of youth unemployment, a high proportion of unbanked and a high mobile penetration. Due to these similarities, it is our view that Latam has the potential to become a major blockchain gaming market in the future. GGs.io is not tied to a specific game and aims to replicate the popular gaming guild’s model in its target market.
We are therefore very excited to participate in this pre-seed round for GGs.io and to be advising their highly experienced team.”
Nicolas Cortes, Co-founder at GGs.io, commented:
“Coming from web2 gaming and e-sports in Latin America, we see blockchain as the future of gaming and believe emerging regions such as Latam are the perfect early adopters for this new niche. We’ve developed a community of over 100,000 midcore and hardcore gamers in GGs.io and want to offer them opportunities in the quality titles that are launching or soon to be launched in the space. Our platform will educate gamers in blockchain gaming and generate adoption from web2 to web3 while also matching them with top earning opportunities with AAA title focused guilds, e-sports organisations, and game publishers in the ecosystem. We’re excited to have Coinsilium as a first check investor and strategic advisor within our team.”
Terms of the SAFT
Under the terms of the SAFT, Coinsilium will receive USD100,000 in value of GGs.io tokens. The tokens will vest over a period of time after the GGs.io token generating event takes place. The Company cannot disclose at this stage specific details regarding the price or the number of tokens to be received. Further details will be provided by way of an update to the market in due course, when the Company is in a position to do so.
Coinsilium has agreed to provide strategic advisory services to GGs.io over a period of time up to and beyond the GGs.io token generation event. The services will include strategic advice on token economics, growth strategy and partnerships. Terms pertaining to advisory engagements are commercially sensitive and subject to confidentiality agreements.
