The past year has seen a flood of new blockchain-based games enter development. But most start-ups have focused on creating self-contained gaming experiences that offer players proprietary tokens and rewards. There have only been a handful of projects announced that have the bigger picture in view. Play It Forward DAO and Ethlas are two of those projects.

Both Play It Forward DAO and Ethlas are built to extend play-to-earn experiences and rewards across multiple games. Play It Forward is accomplishing this through its unique approach to bridging communities and player data. And Ethlas is working toward the same goal by positioning itself as the “Steam Games Platform for Blockchain.”

So, the partnership between Play It Forward and Ethlas is as natural and complementary as they come. Together, these two companies intend on revolutionizing the way gamers enjoy and earn in contemporary and future games.

What is Ethlas?

Concluding its in-game currency pre-sale late last year, Ethlas has already gained the notice of major players in the crypto and GameFi spaces. The Polygon Foundation awarded it ‘Best NFT/GameFi Project’ in December 2021. And its investors include senior executives from numerous leading blockchain-based businesses, including Coinbase, CoinMarketCap, Grab, and several others.

But major investors aren’t the only ones interested in backing Ethlas. Players have been rushing to join the excitement too. Within eight short weeks of launch, Ethlas had already blasted past 2.5 million gameplays. The buzz around Ethlas has been real.

So, what makes Ethlas unique? The team behind it intends on making it the central hub for all play-to-earn games on Web 3.0. By balancing the needs and desires of players, studios, and other businesses, they have developed a platform that hopes to lay the foundation for a genuinely interoperable metaverse. Rather than having access to a single gaming experience, Ethlas users will enjoy an array of puzzle, arcade, and other games.

But Ethlas isn’t just unique in its long-term vision. It’s also working toward that vision in an exceptional way. When investors choose to stake tokens on Ethlas, they’ll receive a SGEM (a first-of-its-kind ERC721 token) that acts as a staking contract as well as an NFT. It’s just one more way that the team behind Ethlas is thinking outside the box.

How Play It Forward and Ethlas Will Work Together

Since Play It Forward and Ethlas are both dedicated to extending user experiences, this partnership will empower them to offer their users connectivity between games like never before. Ethlas will give them access to dozens of different games, each offering its own gameplay and reward opportunities. Meanwhile, Play It Forward will connect the data and communities built on Ethlas with dozens of other play-to-earn games that aren’t on the Ethlas platform. Since Play It Forward is focused on creating cross-game guilds, players will be able to build stronger networks across all their favorite games, multiplying their earnings potential in the process. In addition, they’ll be able to see their data and rankings from every game in a single location.
