Unlockd, the protocol that allows you to maximize the performance of your NFTs with an instant NFT-backed loan, is pleased to announce its new partnership with Ninja Game Guild, a gaming guild focused in Africa, with a strong community in emerging countries like Nigeria.

At Ninja Game Guild they have focused their operations in Africa and other emerging regions, constantly creating educational content and partnering with new games to educate people on blockchain gaming and drive web3 adoption. It was founded with the aim of solving economic problems and providing opportunities through Blockchain Gaming.

NinjaGameGuild has the strong mission of solving economic poverty in Africa through NFT based games and developing an optimal gaming environment for community members. Their goal is to build an ecosystem to increase the number of people who are appreciated and given sufficient opportunity.

Unlockd will provide access to additional capital while maintaining ownership of your NFTs, so NGG can take advantage of additional return opportunities, provide more scholarships, diversify their crypto portfolio, purchase more NFTs, and expand their resources.

Their core team is very competent and experience, with a mix of successful serial entrepreneurs, crypto experts, NFT collectors, growth specialists, and talented developers whose mission is to create a fair and efficient NFT loan ecosystem. They have been able to build a world class set of advisors with the likes of Daishiro Okada .

With this partnership, we hope to strengthen the exchange between NFT gaming and esports and provide an optimal community environment for “Ninja Game Guild” members.

Africa’s crypto adoption paving the way

P2E gaming has received a lot of attention in some developing economies, especially in South East Asia, with the Philippines, Vietnam and Indonesia catching up as player discovery and interest increased over the past few years.

Unlike in America and Europe, the average gamer in Africa is also a crypto user, so there is generally a better reception and understanding of web3 gaming. People are excited about these new types of games in Africa and blockchain is leapfrogging and entire generation of banks and Fintech companies.

Developing countries will see strong GameFi adoption thanks to the relatively low initial investment, growing digitalization and the increasing efficiency of blockchain technology. However, despite the success of blockchain gaming over the past few years and the large amounts of funding the industry has attracted there are several obstacles that the industry has to overcome to move forward.

One of the main challenges is the lack of liquidity that many guilds, games and NFT projects have experienced. Unlockd tackles this problem, as our NFT lending protocol allows GameFi, DeFi, art, and real-world users to enjoy additional liquidity while holding their NFTs with instant, secure, and NFT-backed loans.

World-class guilds, DeFi users, investment DAOs, and experienced collectors use Unlockd to improve the efficiency of their portfolios, preserve their capital, and stay liquid to invest in new opportunities or cover unexpected expenses without selling any of their NFTs.

Ninja Game Guild will be a great partner to expand our reach in the African continent and build a strong community. Our objective is supporting every single NFT owner in the world borrowing using their NFTs as collateral, and we have built relevant partnerships in Africa with several important guilds.

As guilds evolve and focus not only on providing NFTs to community members, but also to create the right trainings and education we think that Ninja Game Guild is in a extraordinary position to grow and provide life-changing opportunities to their gamers and members. We are excited to develop a win-win collaboration with the goal of taking their guild to the next level.
