Yield Guild Games (more commonly known as YGG) has announced their Indian-focused SubDAO, IndiGG. It is mainly focusing on expanding play-to-earn opportunities in India, and they aim to bring some of the circa 430 million Indian gamers into the metaverse, whilst increasing their earning opportunities.
IndiGG is a regional extension of Yield Guild Games, which is backed by Polygon Studios. They wish to benefit from the largest gaming talent pool in the world, by bringing Indian gamers into the metaverse to increase their opportunities in earning.
YGG’s Co-founder, Gabby Dizon, said: “Our approach to getting play-to-earn and crypto towards mass adoption as guilds is by actually going town to town, village to village, city to city, and onboard communities to Web3, but this is not something we could do on our own, SubDAOs like IndiGG allow us to continue that grassroots adoption.”
So far, the project has onboarded 456 scholars and has organized educational boot camps. Alongside this: tournaments and other activities like AMAs with builders and founders in the space.
Additionally, they plan to partner with several NFT games. Also aiming to teach these communities about crypto, DeFi and the opportunities within them. Now, for those curious, the IndiGG Discord is open. They have more than 12,000 dedicated members already partaking in conversations.
