Who are we?

Yield Guild Games is a decentralized gaming guild that pools funds to purchase yield-generating NFTs, and leverages players' time and effort to optimize community-owned assets for maximum utility and return.

By merging NFTs and decentralized finance (DeFi), YGG creates value for its partners and community by developing the content and economy of virtual worlds and blockchain-based games. The organization’s mission is to create the biggest virtual world economy.

Through our innovative SuperQuest infrastructure and integrated partnerships with game makers, we’ve created a revolutionary Web 2 + Web 3 experience that transcends other efforts in the space. This brings users from the games to the guild and from the guild to the games, creating a synergy that rewards the game and the players while strengthening the guild’s own tokenomics and brand.

YGG believes that NFTs and cryptocurrencies are providing transformative economic opportunities for people young and old in developing nations where jobs are lacking and crisis relief has been limited. Notable investors in YGG include Andreessen Horowitz (a16z), Delphi Digital, BITKRAFT Ventures, Animoca Brands, Scalar Capital, and Fabric Ventures.
