Introducing Merit Circle
Merit Circle is a decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) that creates opportunities for crypto and gaming enthusiasts. Together, we are building the metaverse. This is done through investments in play-to-earn games and by dispensing the DAO's assets to our gamers, creators and contributors that are spread across the world. The platform we are building hosts gaming opportunities, educational content and everything else a person could need to begin their journey in the decentralized gaming industry.
The Merit Circle DAO consists of a mainDAO governing over numerous subDAOs that function like tentacles, spreading across the play-to-earn industry. The DAO is maintained by various independent parties and individuals through governance, empowering holders through the $MC token. Since the emergence of the Merit Circle DAO, a great focus has been placed on diversification. This not only means diversifying our portfolio of play-to-earn games but also our infrastructure partners.
As the DAO has grown and evolved, so too has our ability to support, create and positively influence the GameFi industry. To keep up with the ever-changing dynamics of this space, we decided to reorient our vision in creating a DAO that focuses on sustainability, based on four verticals. Each vertical was created from the basis of our experience in the introductory phase of the DAO and addresses an area in which we feel we can further improve on existing operations.

Vertically integrated gaming DAO

The Merit Circle DAO consists of four verticals. Each vertical can stand-alone with its respective products but together they create an ecosystem that adds value to the Merit Circle DAO and, thereby, the $MC token as illustrated in the image below.
The ecosystem of the Merit Circle Gaming DAO

Merit Circle Investments

Web3 has not only made gaming entertaining but rewarding for gamers and investors. Since its inception, the Merit Circle DAO has invested in countless projects in the space and has worked hard to create a resilient treasury consisting of venture, token, NFT investments and yield-farm operations. The focus of this vertical is to make sure that the treasury is run like a fund, set with the goal of improving long-term risk-adjusted returns. This will serve to promote the growth of the broader Merit Circle gaming DAO.

Merit Circle Gaming

The play-to-earn industry would not exist without gaming, and neither would the Merit Circle DAO. While maintaining a focus on building from our foundation, we will continue to scale in games with sustainable economies. We are still actively helping members of the DAO from across the globe by securing their financial situation; we are tailoring our infrastructure for gamers. Our focus in this vertical is to continue partnering with and supporting creative and sustainable games that are not only entertaining but also rewarding for gamers.

Merit Circle Studios

As a key player in the industry, the Merit Circle DAO has an obligation to contribute on a much larger scale. We would like to take a hands-on approach by partnering with veterans in the gaming industry to create Merit Circle Studios. This vertical will house upcoming games and incubate creative projects. From our recent beginnings, we have gathered a considerable amount of knowledge and experience in topics such as game development, in-game economies, marketing, organization efforts and governance. Our focus in this vertical is to leverage our skills and network to grow this space.

Merit Circle Marketplace

With the dominance of the NFT space in the play-to-earn industry, we have noticed some clear issues regarding the centralization of power, in addition to fragmented markets. We would like to set an industry standard, by introducing the Merit Circle NFT Marketplace. With our experience in the play-to-earn industry, we would like to extend our sustainable model by filling the current gap in the NFT market. Our focus in this vertical is to establish a new standard of NFT marketplaces, by overcoming the common pitfalls of this space.
