Welcome to the Defiraverse!
Defira is a blockchain metaverse—the Defiraverse. It is a fusion of DeFi and GameFi, harnessing the synergies of both models to create a DeFi "super app" inside a fantasy game world, which hosts novel and engaging gameplay experiences that fully take advantage of the unique strengths of the blockchain medium. We aim to cultivate the Defiraverse as a multimedia franchise and valuable piece of intellectual property, which is owned and driven by a decentralized community and fandom.
The Defiraverse consists of three core layers, each synergizing with the others.
Our long-term vision is to create a crosschain DeFi super app, integrated within a fantasy game world. Each supported blockchain will host a multi-primitive DeFi protocol (e.g. DEX, lending, liquid staking), and its usage will be intimately linked with the item and progression systems of the game layer.
As the first step, we will begin by integrating Tranquil Finance, our existing DeFi protocol on the Harmony blockchain, into the Defira metaverse. It will be a testbed for experimenting and developing our ideas for Defira before expanding cross-chain.
As a fusion of DeFi and GameFI, we want Defira's game systems to fully take advantage of the unique strengths of the blockchain medium. Popular GameFI projects suffer extreme inflation and lack of utility for their game token (like Axie Infinity). In our model, Defira's game tokens are also governance tokens for its DeFi super app, vastly enhancing the utility and value of the token compared to the traditional GameFI model.
In our grand vision, the Defiraverse will be home to a diverse suite of fully fledged game modes of different genres, catering to different types of players who have varying levels of investment into Defira. Although this vision is far off, we will start by initially focus on developing two core game modes—Expedition and Conquest
We aim to grow a large and passionate community and fanbase around the Defiraverse by developing recognizable characters, music, settings, and stories that together create a valuable piece of intellectual property. An engaging IP also allows us to expand the Defiraverse into other mediums to reach a broader non-core crypto audience, acquiring new fans through fanbase mining.
Beyond the brand and community value an IP provides, a strong IP also provides interesting and innovative opportunities for monetization through selling iconic characters and other assets as ultra premium unique NFTs.
We are just starting out in our long and ambitious journey to fulfill our grand vision for Defira, and as new features and game mechanics are developed and released, we will continue updating this living whitepaper. Welcome to the Defiraverse!
