Revolutionizing chess game through decentralization

The decentralized chess game launched by Animoca Brands in partnership with and Magnus Carlsen goes beyond the traditional boundaries of the classic royal game.

Anichess, currently in its first phase, brings player-versus-environment (PvE) gameplay to the forefront. The game combines traditional chess strategy with innovative elements such as spellcasting, a fantasy storyline, and Web3 functionality. Co-founder Yat Siu emphasizes the fusion of traditional gameplay with these innovative features.

The collaboration with and Magnus Carlsen adds a layer of authenticity and expertise to Anichess. Notable chess talents, including Anish Giri and Sopiko Guramishvili, join the initiative, underlining the commitment to catering to a global community of chess enthusiasts.

Metacade’s revolutionizing virtual hangout

Simultaneously, the crypto gaming space sees the emergence of Metacade ($MCADE) and its unique GameFi virtual hangout.

Metacade’s vision is to create a fun and dynamic virtual hangout for GameFi and Web3 participants. Participants can play their favourite games from established play-to-earn projects and increase their chances of winning big prizes. 

Besides being a place to play, the Metacade platform also allows participants to meet fellow gamers, developers, and entrepreneurs who want to share their ideas, interests, talents, and skills.

In that way participants can see what games are trending, view leaderboards, publish reviews, gain access to the most advanced GameFi alpha and interact with other members in real-time and get rewarded with the native MCADE token for their input into the community.

The platform also wants to put games back into the hands of gamers by allowing MCADE token holders to vote on which developer-submitted games will receive funding via their Metagrants scheme.


In the evolving landscape of decentralized finance (DeFi) and decentralized gaming, Animoca Brands and Metacade stand out as pioneers, each bringing innovation to their respective realms. Anichess transforms the traditional chess experience, fusing it with modern elements, while Metacade continues to empower GameFi participants.

As these projects continue to unfold, they showcase the dynamic nature of the blockchain industry and its potential to reshape traditional sectors.
