Prominent NFT whale, Flying Falcon, is backing a gaming guild’s sponsorship program for play-to-earn NFT gamers.
Pseudonymous digital landowner and crypto whale, “Flying Falcon,” has been the first to contribute to the “Sponsor-A-Scholar” program set up by open gaming community, Yield Guild Games, or YGG.
In February, Axie Infinity revealed nine plots of digital land within the game had sold for 888. 25 Ether, worth $1. 5 million at the time.
YGG describes itself as a decentralized gaming guild of players and investors, who generate a yield from NFT-based games.
However, it added that rising NFT prices have made many games cost-prohibitive for the people who would benefit most from play-to-earn, inspiring the creation of YGG’s scholarship program.
Speaking on his decision to sponsor Axie players through YGG’s program, the NFT investor stated:
YGG intends to offer scholarship programs for other NFT games in the future, with the collective currently holding NFTs from other crypto-powered games including League of Kingdoms, The Sandbox, and F1 Delta Time.
