Moonveil explained that gamers should receive compensation that reflects their contributions. “This contribution will be meticulously tracked alongside their identity in a flexible, composable, and immutable manner, accommodating various preferences, be it spending, grinding, or promoting. This is where we see tokenomics and NFTs playing pivotal roles in a player’s journey,” the company added.

Moonveil did not disclose a valuation as part of today’s announcement.
