Building user-centric product for GameFi and NFT metaverses

James C.K. Ho, director of strategic partnerships at Animoca Brands, emphasizes the importance of this funding for the entire decentralization industry:

As true proponents of decentralisation and fair wealth distribution, we see Amasa as playing a pivotal role in mass adoption of the earning potential web3 and DeFi provides. This will create increased value, not only for Animoca’s portfolio of projects but for the entire blockchain ecosystem.

William Birks, Amasa co-founder and core contributor, is certain that with such a solid backing, Amasa is able to build the first-ever "micro income streams" ecosystem:

Amasa is excited to be supported by firms like Animoca Brands that are innovating in key areas for us like play to earn gaming. Amasa’s mission is to help everyone in the world capitalise on micro income streams. Having this strong group of early supporters behind us really expands our resources and brings valuable networks to leverage as we push on to bring Amasa to the world.

As covered by U.Today previously, Amasa raises funds through a multi-stage AMAS token offering on different dashboards.

The project is building a "micro income" aggregator that can be integrated into various DeFi, NFT and GameFi applications.
