Investor Spotlight: Defiance Capital
We are glad to announce that Defiance Capital is one of our VC partners that will help the creation of this entire soccer universe that we will deliver to our community.
Here is the summary of an interview with Tan Bailey, Investment Analyst of Defiance Capital, in which he explain the reason why he invested on MetaSoccer, and also his predictions about Crypto market and NFT in general.
Please introduce your fund
DeFiance Capital is a crypto-native investment fund focused on investing in the intersection of Decentralized Finance, Gaming and the Metaverse. We combine fundamental research together with an active involvement approach towards our investments and established ourselves as one of the most well respected crypto investors.
Why did you decide to invest in MetaSoccer?
We believe that games will usher in the next wave of DeFi users.
The Football Manager genre has a diehard audience and will be a good fit for the play-to-earn model and application of NFT technology. As players of the original game, we are drawn in by the strategy, tactics and love of the sport.
Champion Games, the studio behind MetaSoccer, are veterans who have spent the last 6 years developing football games and created BeManager, a highly-rated game with over 1M downloads. We are confident that they will be able to replicate the success in MetaSoccer.
What are your current predictions for the NFT and crypto markets in 2021–2022?
We believe in the supercycle and NFTs will continue penetrating the mainstream consciousness, creating huge waves in the gaming sector.
NFTs will increasingly be accepted as the de facto standard for unique digital assets and property rights on the Internet. Players will prefer games that have a free and open economy over closed ones.
How do you think MetaSoccer can disrupt the soccer and gamefi market?
Soccer is a sport loved by fans worldwide with real life soccer clubs and players receiving most of the attention.
MetaSoccer will take on a more radical approach — allowing anyone to create new digital-native Soccer IP (e.g clubs, celebrity players and stadiums). We expect stories to emerge around these personalities and more direct links between Clubs and Fans as IPs can be owned by the passionate community.
What are you going to name your MetaSoccer club?
MetaSoccer is the first blockchain-based soccer metaverse where users can create their own club and generate income while playing (Play-to-Earn).
A whole soccer ecosystem where users can participate full-time as club owners or managers while having fun and generating income. MetaSoccer embraces multiple revenue streams such as: NFT asset drops, fees from different transactions across the ecosystem (marketplace sales, betting, token swap…), sponsorships and broadcasting.
