We think DOGAMÍ shares this vision and contributes to the opening of blockchain gaming to mainstream players.”
DOGAMÍ combines AAA NFT gaming with investing and pet ownership 3.0. The game resides on the Tezos blockchain, renowned for being more energy-efficient than other public blockchain ecosystems.
Moreover, DOGAMí paves the way for establishing a “Petaverse” where players can adopt and raise their unique 3D dog companion and earn $DOGA tokens in the process.
Players entering the Petaverse will train and play with over 300 DOGAMÍ breeds. Every breed has unique traits and will provide a slightly different user experience.
Interaction between players and virtual pets occurs through the augmented reality-enabled mobile application. Additionally, there is lore surrounding the Petaverse to explore.
That lore is created by Bryan J.L. Glass, an alumnus of Marvel, Image and DC Comics who worked on Thor, The Mice Templar, and Adventures Of Superman.
Players engaging with the Petaverse will earn $DOGA Tokens when completing various tasks.
The currency is used to buy consumables, build a digital wardrobe, purchase tickets to virtual events, collect badges, and breed DOGAMÍ. Additionally, $DOGA will be traded through centralized and decentralized exchanges on the secondary market.
DOGAMÍ CEO and Co-founder Maximilian Stoeckl commented:
“At DOGAMÍ, we aspire to develop a play-to-earn game that pushes the envelope in terms of design, user experience & mass appeal. We believe strongly in the opportunities & the empowerment that web3 has to offer.
The early support of world-class investors as well as advanced negotiations with strong commercial partners are highly reassuring and encourage us in our beliefs.”
