A Strategic Partnership To Develop the GameFi Sector on BSC 

While the investment will be significant for the blockchain game start-up, it will also promote the BSC ecosystem. Investment Director of Binance Labs, Chase Guo, was optimistic about the deal, stating that the GameFi protocol would contribute to BSC’s gaming sector. 

“The Star Sharks team has deep gaming expertise and extensive product design experience,” Chase Guo was quoted in Binance’s public statement on November 2nd. “After launching their GameFi platform on Binance Smart Chain (BSC), we believe that Star Sharks will be an important contributor to the development of the gaming sector and therefore benefit all users in the BSC ecosystem.” 

The CEO of Star Sharks, Franky, also put in some good words about the deal. First, he made mention of the protocol’s vision, adding that the investment from Binance Labs is enough support to build the Star Sharks metaverse. 

In his words, “At Star Sharks, we are dedicated to ensuring that everyone has fair and equal rights to access decentralized games. We have seen how decentralized games have the potential to build an inclusive, passionate global community, and Star Sharks wants to achieve that in our Shark Metaverse. With Binance Labs’ strategic investment, we believe that we have the support needed to achieve our vision.”


What Next For Star Sharks? 

The protocol will launch its first game, Starsharks.Warriors in November, allowing users to own, breed, and trade sharks as NFTs. Star Sharks also intends to implement a referral system on top of innovative “rent-to-play” features in the future. 

The rent-to-play feature will fully activate the liquidity and utilization of NFTs, connecting NFT holders with less playing time and active players with less initial capital to buy in-game NFTs. On the other hand, the referral system will give users rewards for bringing users to the GameFi metaverse. Also, the rewards will be based on the referred users’ activities in gaming competitions.
