Malaysian video game retailer launches ‘LEETGuild,’ a blockchain gaming guild

Gamers Hideout, a Malaysian video game retailer, has teamed up with Playcoin Asia to establish LEETGuild, the first blockchain gaming guild that integrates both online and offline services, allowing gamers to receive special support in both the metaverse and the real world. Gamers Hideout and Playcoin Asia will collaborate to create a full-featured blockchain “guild” platform based on a DAO (Decentralized Anonymous Organization), which will educate, train, and advise the gaming community on how to adopt Play-to-Earn (P2E) games.

Gamers Hideout will also provide exclusive perks to community members in the real world, such as exclusive membership incentives and discounts on gaming equipment. “This will usher in a new era of gaming for our existing gaming community, customers, and even new players.”

The popularity of the blockchain metaverse has grown by 33% in Asia, according to the BGA (Blockchain Game Alliance) 2021 Member Survey & Report, with 1.7 million mentions across Asian media outlets. Furthermore, P2E blockchain games were valued at $36 billion in 2021, with Axie Infinity, the most popular and dominant P2E game, reaching a record high trading volume of $2.5 billion in September 2021 alone. Because P2E games allow gamers to create revenue or digital assets (NFTs) from crypto while playing for fun and social purposes, they were on the increase in 2021 and predicted to develop fast in 2022 as a result of the pandemic impacts.

“We’re equally excited to collaborate on blockchain projects with Gamers Hideout.” The pandemic has wreaked havoc on people’s lives around the world, as well as the economy, resulting in alarming increases in unemployment. We see a large market growth potential in blockchain gaming, as well as the necessity to construct the LEETGuild platform to help communities overcome a lack of crypto expertise and start-up funding for blockchain gaming adoption. Because the cost of entry into blockchain games can be prohibitive for many, LEETGuild can undoubtedly assist those in need.” William Chong, Playcoin Asia’s Operations Director, stated.

Gamers Hideout provides a significant advantage in collaborating with blockchain specialist Playcoin Asia to create LEETGuild, which aspires to be a life-changing platform for both new and experienced gamers to take use of the metaverse’s boundless prospects.

Gamers Hideout was founded in 2006 and has since evolved to become one of Malaysia’s largest gaming retail brands. Gamers Hideout was the first gaming retail company in Southeast Asia to receive ISO 9001 certification in 2019. Gamers Hideout is now poised to branch out from the gaming industry and into the technological and leisure industries. Consumers seeking entertainment products or services will find a more wholesome and refreshing retail experience at Gamers Hideout.

Playcoin Asia, which was founded in 2015, is Southeast Asia’s largest real-time and on-demand digital asset distribution platform. The platform is exceptionally safe and secure, as it has been certified by ISO 27001: Information Security Management System and the National Institute of Standards and Technology.
