“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,”
— James C. K. Ho, Director of Strategic Partnerships, Animoca Brands
“I am all about bringing communities together to earn via blockchain based economies. Amasa will bring more users into the space and give existing users additional options and incentives to increase the value of their time spent in these economies.”
— Gabby Dizon, Co-Founder, Yield Guild Games
We are humbled by the high level of engagement from reputable VCs, leading figures in the play-to-earn gaming space, and highly successful blockchain infrastructure builders. Their enthusiasm affirms the pivotal role of what Amasa is building to realize the earning potential of Web 3.0 and DeFi for a global user base of billions.
The support from partners like Animoca Brands will let us expand our connections within the rapidly expanding ecosystem of play-to-earn gaming, NFTs, and metaverse builders. Our work with different projects that reward users with micro income streams ensures Amasa is built as a user-centric product that can integrate with existing and future platforms, adding value to any project that generates micro income.
These funds will be used to grow Amasa’s team of core contributors and progress comprehensively through our roadmap to build out our platform and ecosystem. We’re off to a very strong start and expect to bring Amasa to market in early 2022.
We’re looking forward to bringing investment streaming to the world and helping people harness the potential of Web 3.0 and DeFi.
Amasa’s mission is to empower anyone, anywhere in the world to capture and capitalise on the wealth building potential of micro income streams and DeFi. We are inspiring mass adoption of Web 3.0 platforms that reward participants for their gaming, time, energy, attention, content, data and interactions.
We’re doing that by building the world’s first micro income stream investment app. The Amasa app will make micro income streams easy to capture, combine and access as a stabilised income, then amplify through user-selected DeFi investment options.
Combine. Stabilise. Amplify. All in the background of everyday life.
