Meta Yield & Human Guild GameFi Challenge
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.
Live Pitch Competition during NEARCON 2022
In addition to the online community-based voting process via the Meta Yield platform, we wanted to leverage the presence of the Meta Pool / Meta Yield team in Lisbon for NEARCON 2022 to organize something fun.
With that in mind, we chose to organize an in-person live pitch competition combined with a networking event and obviously some food and drinks.
This was a blast! More than 200 persons signed up for our NEARCON side event and the 7 projects pitched their game in a relaxed and fun atmosphere.
The 7 Games in competition are:
- Amber Metaverse
- Poker Space
- World of the Abyss (WOTA)
- Land to Empire
In order to make it easier and even more memorable we decided to make the audience vote physically using poker tokens branded as $META, the Meta Pool governance token that is needed to vote for a project via the Meta Vote platform.
The result of this live pitch competition was a tie between Metamon and Waka!
Congratulations to the winners, Metamon & Waka!
Meta Yield - Mintbase Partnership
This live pitch competition / networking event was a good opportunity to remind everyone of the partnership between Mintbase and Meta Yield.
It will be now possible for such a project to launch a fundraising campaign on Meta Yield and offer NFTs to their financial backers!
Liquid Staking & Lossless Funding of NEAR Projects for Financial Institutions
Proximity announced during Day #1 of NEARCON 2022 that NEAR Foundation is partnering with Fireblocks, a leading provider of custody and settlement solutions for digital assets.
The participation of financial institutions and business to the liquid staking of $NEAR via Meta Pool will strongly and durably re-enforce the decentralization and censorship of NEAR protocol.
Additionally the integration of Fireblocks to Meta Yield paves the way for VCs and financial institutions to financially support NEAR projects without putting at risk their crypto assets, only the staking rewards generated.
About Meta Pool & stNEAR
Meta Pool is the leading liquid staking solution for $NEAR and wNEAR token holders. With Meta Pool you earn NEAR staking rewards and maintain your liquidity to participate in DeFi protocols on NEAR and Aurora.
Users staking $NEAR and wNEAR with Meta Pool receive in exchange stNEAR (staked NEAR) tokens.
stNEAR simultaneously accrues staking rewards and unlocks users’ liquidity enabling them to participate in DeFi activities (e.g. lending, farming, borrowing) on NEAR and Aurora.

Meta Pool also solves the problems associated with Proof-of-Stake networks staking: illiquidity, immovability and accessibility. Meta Pool also aims to distribute staking in multiple validators to improve censorship-resistance of the NEAR network.
With a TVL of ~9 Million $NEAR and growing, Meta Pool has become in just a few months a cornerstone element of the NEAR ecosystem. Meta Pool is making NEAR Protocol more decentralized and therefore more secure.
In February 2022 Meta Pool has been successfully audited by BlockSec, confirming the implementation of the highest security standards.
