PolkaPet World and VIKER introduce new collaborative NFT mobile games integration
London, UK [5 December 2022] – Forj, a subsidiary of Animoca Brands, and VIKER today announced a partnership to launch a unique PolkaPets World NFT called VIKER PolkaPet Pass (VPPP) which is free for PolkaPet NFT holders.
The VPPP NFT will enable the holder to earn double Bitcoin rewards across VIKER’s portfolio of casual mobile games, starting with SOLITAIRE and coming soon to WHO WANTS TO BE A MILLIONAIRE, BALLS KING, and many others.
In 2023 VPPP holders will be able to earn $PETS (the PolkaPets tokens) in the whole portfolio of VIKER mobile games.
“We designed our Web3 platform and games to enable collaboration with leading NFT collections and brands by offering a simple way to add real utility and Play-and-Earn mechanics across our multi game ecosystem,” said Ben Cusack, Founder of VIKER. “Spending more time playing VIKER casual mobile games can now offer double bitcoin rewards for PolkaPet owners.”
“Onboarding Web2 audiences to Web3 gaming experiences was core to the vision underpinning PolkaPet World,” said Harry L, CEO and Founder of Forj, and PolkaPet World Team Lead. “With VIKER’s huge mobile game ecosystem now allowing our PolkaPet audience the chance to experience the PolkaPets IP on mobile gaming we’re breaking new ground in Web3 entertainment.”
“This partnership showcases the vast opportunities for brands to provide interoperable digital assets in the mobile gaming space,” said Robby Yung, CEO of Animoca Brands North America operations. “As part of the Animoca Brands ecosystem, both VIKER and PolkaPet World are collaborating to onboard whole new audiences to the power of Web3.”
All holders of an original PolkaPet, or special edition ‘Fenix’ pet, are eligible and will receive a special dedicated airdrop on the Polygon network with a limited edition VPPP NFT. This will be instantly usable in VIKER’s Solitaire Play-and-Earn mobile game, available on the App Store and Google Play
