👉 Axie Infinity is just the beginning:
ICYMI … AxieCon! With hundreds of people attending, massive announcements (Hi, Google partnership), and the most heart-racing esports tournament in Web3, we are definitely still reliving the excitement and energy brought by you all. We also didn’t forget what was on your minds -
👂Here’s what we’ve heard:
You’re ready to play more games with us and you’ve got leads. Well, we’re all ears. Submit a game studio you think would best fit to work with us (see below)!
You’re a game studio and want to build with us. Read on, we can’t wait to meet you.
You want to tell us about yourself - we’re excited to get to know you and the games you want to play on a deeper level.
Axie Infinity is just the beginning. Sky Mavis is building the next generation Web3 gaming ecosystem on the Ronin Network and Mavis Hub. We’re partnering with the best game studios to build successful Web3 games by leveraging our products and experience to combine ownership, community, and immersive games.
We envision an ecosystem where game studios and creators can build games on the Ronin Network to create an infinite and unified ecosystem that covers different game genres that appeals to a diverse audience. Studios and creators have the opportunity to access Axie IP for their titles or build entirely new games with distinct IP on top of Ronin.
Our partnered game studios will gain access to everything Sky Mavis has to offer through our extensive Partnership Platform (see below) and direct access to the people who made Axie Infinity, from our COO to Chief Growth Officer, and every department in-between to help build, launch, and scale their games.
We offer an exclusive ‘white glove’ experience for a select number of studio partners. So far, we’ve evaluated 250+ game studios and are being extremely selective. Why? Our community deserves only the best games and we will ensure each title is a smashing success. Our careful vetting process includes the required diligence related to gameplay, player economy, tokenomics, NFTs, and anything else these games want to build. We will continue to earn your trust by providing safe, legitimate, long lasting, and fun gameplay experiences.
So, what’re we looking for when sourcing and onboarding the top gaming studio partners?
🤗 Gaming studio’s personality traits:
Studios that have ambition to build the next largest game in Web3 and aren’t afraid to experiment, build, and succeed with us
Founders that have worked together in creating smashbox hits, focusing on gamer needs and creating a fun and experiential game
Expertise and working knowledge of Web3 economics and technology in gaming OR passion and willingness to learn and grow from a trusted community (You bring the game expertise, we’ll help with the blockchain!)
Studio focus - building one successful Web3 game is hard enough.
Studios that are aligned with our vision of onboarding the next billion users.
Studios who are dead set on building a great game that incorporates NFT ownership, community building, and all the other benefits provided with blockchains.
✅ What gaming studios can expect after partnering with us:
Access to a comprehensive suite of battle tested infrastructure and tools for game developers and players
A white-glove environment to lean into Sky Mavis’ expertise, infrastructure, user base, and distribution to create powerful games through our Operating Platform.
The option to use Axie IP or create new games with distinct IP on the Ronin Network.
Our team at Sky Mavis created a genre-defining game and an infrastructure that enabled it to scale. Now, we are rolling out technology to create a gaming ecosystem built on Ronin that shares a massive user base, community-owned protocols, applications, and deep asset liquidity with the goal of enabling the next generation of NFT game developers to unlock their creations.
In addition to our Ronin EVM Blockchain, our infrastructure and tools include:
Mavis Hub, Sky Mavis’ distribution platform, is built to bypass legacy gatekeepers. Mavis Hub is the Web3 ultimate destination for playing, creating and owning exclusive digital content. This platform will be the central hub for players to easily access all games within our ecosystem.
The Ronin Wallet, a digital wallet that has been downloaded 4 million times, serves as a boarding pass and onboarding portal into Web3 for millions of people.
Marketplace, fully-fledged marketplace for NFTs on Ronin, along with the necessary analytics and tools to make a robust hub for transactions.
Katana Dex, Ronin’s decentralized exchange, enables players to swap their wallet’s assets anytime and anywhere on the Ronin blockchain at a low cost and reduce reliance on other parties.
Key integration with Binance, Ronin Network is directly integrated with Binance, ensuring deep liquidity for $AXS,$SLP and Ronin-USDC/WETH.
In addition to infrastructure and technology tools, our Operating Platform provides game studios access to the following benefits:
Sky Mavis provides both traditional investment and grant opportunities for chosen partners. Our Ronin ecosystem fund is currently at $42M, and we have allocated an additional $10M to invest in the ecosystem from Sky Mavis’s balance sheet.
By partnering with Sky Mavis you will have direct access to the creators of web3's most successful title. We offer white glove advisory services related to tokenomics structuring, NFTs, GTM, UA, PR, web3 Esports, Community, Product, Art, Security, and Infrastructure.
Community & Growth
Community is the heartbeat of web3 games. How studios manage this crucial piece can make or break a product. From bootstrapping an initial ragtag band of missionaries to scaling a digital nation, we’ve done it all - and we’re continuing to learn and innovate as our Axie Infinity community matures and develops. Along with advisory, we provide insight and access into our existing, vibrant, passionate community.
Sky Mavis has developed a proven web3 growth framework with battle-tested strategies for every point in the growth lifecycle, from early-stage vampire attacks to mature-stage performance marketing. We’re armed with web3’s largest creator program with over 2,500 creators hungry for new Ronin games, as well as the first-ever web3 user acquisition machine, and we are ready to unleash our proprietary strategies for data-driven growth.
Our Conversion Rate Optimization squad is focused on ecosystem-wide user journey tracking and gives us unique insight into how a user goes from F2P -> Paying User (Web2) -> Paying user (Web3).
With hundreds of thousands of weekly users, highly engaged social media accounts, direct methods of communicating with users, and a distribution platform (Mavis Hub) where players access all games, we have the tools to expose your game to millions of users with the click of a button.
By working closely with various mobile app stores we are chartering a repeatable path to success for all Sky Mavis published games.
Axie Infinity IP Integration: Partners have the option of building an Axie-related game, or allowing Axie NFTs within their game for ultimate exposure, with the Axie community 2 M+ strong.
🎮 We’d love your help to build the next generation of games:
In order to achieve our dream of being the largest Web3 gaming ecosystem, we need to onboard, build, and test the next big games on our platform. We are planning on onboarding multiple top gaming studios to build with us on Ronin to start. We have entered into agreements with several incredible studios and are narrowing in on a few more before we enter into a new year. Think you can help us build the next generation of games (see surveys below)?
