Swiss capital enterprise Dialectic , founded and directed by Ryan Zurrer , the recent buyer of Beeple's Human One sculpture, is leading the  private land sale for FRWC's fantastical game. Seven Seven Six , founded by internet entrepreneur and co-founder of Reddit Alexis Ohanian , also joins the initial investment round. Additional investors in the round include Libertus Capital, Kenetic Capital, Placeholder, 1confirmation, WENEW Labs, No Goat Milk (Future Corp) and crypto twitter royalty Fiskantes, Deeze, and Soby.

"As our team at Dialectic spent more time in the Wizards community, we've been constantly impressed by the spirit of innovation around IP rights for Wizard holders and the level of commitment from such a highly engaged and diverse community aptly named a "cult." The remarkable execution led by Dotta, ElfJTrul, and Bearsnake, who have built at an amazing pace, is inspiring. We are committed to continuing to build infrastructure and support the deepening Lore of this special group. We are also grateful to have extraordinary co-investors such as Seven Seven Six and 1confirmation join this land sale. Alexis and Nick are some of the leading minds in the evolution of Web3 culture in the metaverse and I think this validates the quality of the Forgotten Runes Wizard Cult. The future looks bright on the horizon of Alessar's Keep." stated Ryan Zurrer .

"Like many, I discovered Forgotten Runes Wizard's Cult when some of my favorite folks in the Web3 community started tweeting these charming, nostalgic JRPG-style avatars. We connected and were impressed by the vision from the teams at Bisonic and Magic Machine. One of my first experiences in leadership came from running a guild in Everquest back in highschool and the early energy that's gathered in the FRWC community feels special," said Alexis Ohanian , Founder, Seven Seven Six. "There's a lot of work to be done to deliver a great game, but projects like this are transforming and leading the development of Web3 and we're honored to join them on this journey."

"We're very excited to have the support of Ryan, Alexis, and the rest of our investors for this project. Their knowledge and excitement for the world of crypto, and their strategic vision will be instrumental in helping us deliver a truly innovative and sustainable new web3 game. We're grateful to have the trust of these visionary community leaders, and excited to continue building this experience, and to open up access to Land to the broader community in the near future," stated Bisonic's leadership team.

"Our Cult is growing everyday, and the impressive teams involved in this investment round are a testament to the viability of our Cult and the Runiverse. With our constant innovation in tokenomics and new modes of storytelling, we are primed for tremendous growth. Teams like Dialectic are as active as the rest of our community, and this range of investors will propel the project to unexplored territories of the fantasy genre." stated ElfJTrul of Magic Machine.

The game's development is well underway and will host a public land sale in the coming months. Tokenized land plots are available at various sizes upon which landowners can build an array of structures including customizable homes, guildhalls, mines, workshops, forges, galleries, battle arenas, and more. While non-property owners can enjoy a full game experience, ownership of land brings additional layers of utility, differentiating the Runiverse from other metaverse land tokens. Players can generate fees based off services provided on property, rent land to other users, harvest resources, and host events like skills competitions, mini game nights, poetry readings and concerts.

The unique blockchain based economy allows rich characters to be created in a democratized setting with diverse PvE and PvP game play. A beta version of the game will go live later this year prior to the game's official launch.

Forgotten Runes Wizard's Cult is a decentralized world-building project built on blockchain technology. Token holders own their unique characters and bring fantasy role playing to a whole new level of authenticity. Through a brand new model of decentralized IP ownership, the project is being expressed in a vast array of media. Highlights over the past few months include the community owned "Book of Lore" (on-chain lore scribing), a TV development deal with Titmouse animation (Midnight Gospel), a metaverse video game, production of a 10 comic mini-series, a DAO, and a team-up with Coinbase NFT for exclusive drops.

MetaOne: GameFi is an untapped jewel in the making

Marrtin Hoon CEO of MetaOne shares his thoughts on how gaming industry has always been evergreen as gamers will always play games regardless of the global economic situation. In fact, more will find solace through the world of gaming. The hottest topic in town would be the evolution of GameFi, the fusion of the words "game" and "finance" which stands for monetization of the gaming experience. Making money playing online games has been around for some time, but with the emergence of GameFi since the 2020s, people are actually making a living by playing these games.

Despite all the hype, there is still a huge potential for community growth as making the switch from traditional gaming to GameFi requires effort, knowledge building, or in certain cases, cash.

Created by Gamers, MetaOne project is committed to reach out to this untapped community to shed the path towards GameFi by neutralising the transition barriers with their single interface platform.

The MetaOne platform highlights effortless onboarding with its one-stop guild management system that facilitates sign ups from all gamers and followers. Their integration with GameFi partners make BigData analysis possible with in-game insights that empower decision makers to execute secure cross-chain NFT activities via their Smart Contract protocol. The ecosystem within is looking forward to bringing tremendous benefit to all stakeholders while contributing to the GameFi space expansion.

"The market now is very turbulent but also gave us an opportunity to prove some key points. MetaOne's key strategy has always been to convert this massive group of gamers to enter into GameFi through a credible platform that provides science and data clearly to them for making right choices. This will have material impacts to GameFi studios and ultimately the blockchain community," said Marrtin, CEO of MetaOne, "We are so excited about communicating this vision to all geographical regions and realizing it into real executable plans where guilds, gamers, GameFi studios and users can see and feel the tangibles."

Fundamentally, Metaone does not compete with Guilds, games, and online ecosystems but rather is a comprehensive enabler and force multiplier for the Gamefi space, integrating analytics, guild management, NFT asset management, and Game NFT activities that can be harnessed to empower these spaces plus changing how the industry operates.
