Hashflow Introduces Hashverse: A Gamified Platform Merging DeFi Trading
Hashflow unveils Hashverse, a gamified platform offering a blend of educational quests and competitive trading in a futuristic sci-fi setting, aiming to enhance user engagement in decentralized finance.
Hashflow, a decentralized crypto exchange, has launched Hashverse, a novel platform that combines gamified financial experiences with decentralized finance (DeFi) activities. This innovative platform is designed to offer users narrative and educational quests centred around cryptocurrency trading in a competitive environment.
Engaging Users through Gamification
In Hashverse, users, or traders, have the opportunity to select a character avatar, stake tokens, and complete a variety of browser-based quests. By participating in these activities, users can mint Hashverse character NFTs, climb the leaderboard, and have the chance to earn or win HFT, Hashflow’s governance token. The governance tokens play a crucial role in decentralized communities, allowing users to vote on various measures that determine the community's future and objectives.
The platform, developed in collaboration with the advertising agency and entertainment studio Superconductor, is set in the futuristic world of Renova. The narrative revolves around an artificial intelligence entity, Solus, created to prevent a devastating war. However, a power struggle ensues as citizens rebel against the AI, leading to the establishment of an AI-driven planetary dictatorship. This engaging lore serves as a backdrop to the educational quests provided on the platform, allowing users to learn about various trading strategies and technical analysis in DeFi, all while immersed in a captivating storyline.
Hashverse is not just about individual participation; it also encourages team-based competitions. Various NFT communities can form Allegiances and compete in biweekly trading matches called “Battle Royales.” Winning teams receive a portion of the HFT prize pool. This approach aims to unite some of the most engaged and valuable communities across Web3 globally in a way that benefits them tangibly.
The platform’s quests are a mix of story-based and educational, offering users daily insights into DeFi topics. Completing quests grants participants XP, and the Allegiances with the most XP will reach the top of the leaderboard. This combination of education and competition is designed to make crypto transactions and DAO governance more entertaining and accessible to a wider audience.
