GameFi and NFTs are coming to Meta Yield
One of the most under-hyped aspects of the NEAR ecosystem is the games that are being built, and subsequent developing NFTs. “GameFi” is the catch-all term used by the web3 community to describe games that allow players to earn real value, typically in the form of tokens or NFTs.
Our partnership with Human Guild enrolls a total of 7 GameFi projects built on NEAR, into a 3-week long competition.
The competition relies on the engagement of the NEAR community and game fans desiring to influence and make a long-term impact on the NEAR ecosystem: the community is invited to vote for their favorite project.
The project winner of the voting contest will be launching a fundraising campaign on Meta Yield with an initial commitment of 20,000 stNEAR in backing.
The GameFi Projects You Can Vote For
Here are the 7 projects you can vote for:
AMBER is a Metaverse and NFT game with a variety of battle modes in which NFTs are your digital property: characters, weapons, vehicles, real estate, land. The first 8888 unique 3D NFT avatars are your entry into a new virtual game world, your blockchain ‘soul’. Vote for Amber Metaverse here!
Land to Empire
Land to Empire is a play-to-earn mobile ready strategy game on Near Protocol. The game is set in a fantasy world where the player is the lord of the land. In Land to Empire, players have to upgrade their land using resources gained from attacking other players’ lands or producing them on their land. Additionally, the gamer can take buildings from the game to the marketplace in order to earn money from their NFT sale. Vote for Land to Empire here!
Metamon is a sci-fi and fantasy Web3 game powered by NEAR Protocol, Unreal Engine, and MTVRS, a blockchain game platform.

World of the Abyss (WOTA)
World of the Abyss (WOTA) is a true hardcore mobile MMORPG with a focus on real-time player interaction. WOTA has a classic free-to-play core as well as a Web3-component based on NEAR protocol (Play & Earn, minting, owning and trading NFT-items (gear, loot boxes, etc), NFT Marketplace, DAO Clan governance, etc). Vote for WOTA here!
Users can choose digital spaces (rooms) on waka, which fit their interests. There they can get matched with another person with whom they have a lot in common (same meme taste, same NFTs, matching Horoscope, or matching personality).
Matched users are then teleported into the metaverse (3d worlds), where they can continue to interact with each other. Users come back to find new matches and strengthen their social bonds by exchanging NFT-artifacts and finding new metaverse experiences. Vote for Waka here!
How You Can Vote Using Meta Vote
The Meta Yield fundraising platform has so far been very successful at raising funds for projects with the latest campaign, Cheddar Farm, crushing its fundraising goals.
As part of the community-based ethos of Meta Yield, we want the NEAR community to play the deciding role in choosing which projects will host fundraising campaigns on Meta Yield.
The 7 games will remain on the leaderboard until the end of the challenge, with the winner of the first round of community voting earning 20,000 stNEAR in initial backing. Remember, with Meta Yield backers get their initial investment back at the end of the locking period – the project raises their funds through the staking rewards of delegated tokens.
It is important to note that these new projects will be coming with new incentives, thanks to our partnership with Mintbase. Additionally, the 6 projects that are not selected by the community to receive the 20,000 stNEAR in backing will still be debuting on Meta Yield in the future!
We will keep you posted on the status of the contest and outline exactly how to use Meta Vote in a future post coming soon!
