Myria, the decentralized Ethereum Layer 2 blockchain gaming platform, announced on Thursday, April 6th, that its native MYRIA token has now launched on the OKX exchange. The company also announced the launch of a 45 Million MYRIA Airdrop.
In a press release shared with Cryptowisser, the platform said following the listing on OKX, the MYRIA token will be listed on Kucoin and several more exchanges.
Myria is a Layer 2 blockchain scaling solution for Ethereum that utilizes ZK roll-up technology, offering players and developers near-instant transactions with a speed of over 9000 tps, zero gas fees on transactions, and free NFT minting. The platform facilitates game development with its custom-tailored SDK and has already gathered more than 250 third-party gaming projects, all actively building on the platform.
Furthermore, Myria already has over a million registered users and a thriving community of more than 350,000 Myrians. The firm has partnered with celebrity cricket player AB de Villiers, to launch his play-and-earn Cricket game and revealed details about Metarush, the first game by Myria Studios, in a closed gameplay event.
The MYRIA token uses the ERC-20 standard and has numerous cases ranging from governance, staking, and in-game utility to protocol fees and Myria node purchases. The team added that the utility of the token will continue to expand as the ecosystem grows and more projects launch on the platform.
While commenting on this latest development, Myria co-founder and Head of Blockchain Brendan Duhamel, said;
“Our token launch is another step towards our goal of building and scaling innovative blockchain games securely and effectively. Within a short time, Myria managed to bring onboard 1 million users and make it easier for gaming studios to build Web3. This is what will truly scale the ecosystem, and our goal is to make it easier for both players and game studios to enter the Web3 space.”
In terms of tokenomics, MYRIA has a maximum supply of 50 billion tokens, the highest number that can ever be in circulation.
MYRIA is crucial to the Myria ecosystem as the token plays a role in driving demand and ensuring constant circulation.
To celebrate the launch of MYRIA, community members are invited to participate in the Alliance Key NFT Airdrop. This will be the second major NFT airdrop, providing gamers with in-game utility.
Myria said its public node sale would go live tomorrow, April 7. The event will bring the network into a new realm of true decentralization, the team concluded.
