1. Building a New Paradigm

Everyone is asking, Whats the next big thing in gaming? Whats the narrative after Play-to-Earn?

As we delve deeper into this space, we’re witnessing the emergence of a gaming lifestyle revolution. Gaming is moving beyond entertainment and igniting two important trends: first, gaming is becoming part of everyday life; second, the physical and digital worlds are merging. Zentry’s continued expansion and growth is a testament to this trend.

“We are excited to support Jarindr and his dedicated team who have successfully built a stable community of GuildFi users during the bear market by gamifying social behaviors through rewards and tasks. We believe that Zentry’s Metagame Layer will drive the next generation of Web3 gaming and social experiences through the team’s expertise in player behavior and a strong catalog of games.” - Shi Khai Wei, Partner at LongHash Ventures

Zentry is pioneering a new paradigm: the Play Economy.

This Play-to-Earn evolution goes beyond the short-term cycles of a single game economy and into a meta-economy that encompasses multiple games with lifetime value.

Zentry and its gaming economy will enable a new dimension of gaming, a new distribution model, and a new era of advertising, creating unparalleled social and economic opportunities for gamers, game publishers, and others.

The gamification of everyday life will continue to be a dominant trend in the future, and we believe Zentry is well-positioned to build a unique social layer that better connects the digital and physical worlds. As the network effect of the Zentry community platform grows, it has the potential to become a dominant distribution source for new games and entertainment. - Jerry Shi, Founder and Managing Partner of Synergis Capital

2. Setting New Standards

Zentry will strive to raise the bar and set industry benchmarks in the future. It stands to reason that to achieve mass adoption of crypto, we must purposefully build seamless onboarding and user experience. Furthermore, mass adoption is not the work of one party, but rather the collective effort of the entire crypto industry.

Spartan remains bullish on Web3 games because we believe it is the most convenient way for crypto to achieve mass adoption. Zentry has an innovative vision to seamlessly integrate real-life social interactions with Web3 technology to create an immersive MMORPG experience, and we firmly believe that the team can create a transformative ecosystem that redefines the boundaries of digital value creation. - Tommy Chang, Head of Gaming and Executive Director of Spartan Capital

3. Zentry’s Treasury Strategy

According to the official treasury information for the first half of 2024 recently released, as of May 22, 2024, Zentrys total treasury has reached $151,367,382, an increase of about 50% since the beginning of 2024.
