The VGX Foundation, a Cayman Islands Foundation, has partnered with Genopets to integrate the VGX token as a reward in their popular move-to-earn NFT mobile game on Solana. The partnership introduces VGX as a reward token in the Genopets game, creating utility and rewards for using VGX within the Genopets ecosystem. 

VGX is a token that bridges multiple chains and is focused on bridging utility across GameFi and gaming ecosystems. 

Genopets launched in 2021 and is one of the largest games on Solana with more than 200k active players during their private beta. It’s a free-to-play mobile game where players summon digital pets (their “Genopet”), which evolve and grow as players move around and stay active in the real world. Each day players bank the steps they take in the real world to earn energy they can use to upgrade and customize their Genopet through stages of evolution. Now VGX can be awarded to players for the Energy they earn in the game.

The partnership starts with a series of competitions for Genopets players to earn VGX from a $150,000 prize pool by banking their steps daily and competing on the Energy leaderboard. The leaderboard competition is open to new and existing Genopets players.

Additionally, new players downloading Genopets can claim a special reward of rare food and toys for their Genopet by using referral code “VGX” when they sign up as a new user and bank their first steps during this campaign.

To further expand the partnership, players who earn VGX will also be able to take their VGX to Gala Games and use it to purchase a season pass for Voyager: Ascension, which will unlock further rewards in future games.

“We’re thrilled to announce a synergistic partnership with Genopets, an original leader in web3 gaming on Solana,” said Claire Abrehart, Director of VGX (BVI) Ltd. “This collaboration, alongside our recent success with Gala Games, further unlocks new possibilities for the VGX ecosystem. By integrating our token with both Genopets’s vibrant player community and the dedicated Gala Games audience, we’re fostering an innovative future for in-game rewards and experiences across the Web3 gaming landscape.”

“Partnering across foundations to bring new incentives to players in Genopets with leaders in Web3 Gaming like the VGX Foundation and Gala Games is a huge opportunity for our foundation,” said Jay Chang, Co-founder of Genopets. “Genopets was created to make living an active lifestyle more fun and rewarding by bridging physical and digital worlds and there couldn’t be better partners to grow our foundation’s ecosystem with.”

Earlier this year, the VGX Foundation also announced a partnership with Gala Games, using the GalaChain SDK to integrate VGX into Gala Games as a reward token used to acquire in-game items and unlock engagement opportunities. After integration is complete, gamers will be able to earn VGX-based rewards for in-game achievements within specific titles.
