Updates on Functionality:

  • We are close to launching V1 of our comprehensive internal marketplace that will enable a robust payment process that is scalable and allows users to seamlessly transact within the Silks platform. 
    • An internal marketplace that’s directly integrated with the Races page will allow users to directly connect with their Silks assets.
  • The marketplace release will set the stage for Syndication, ensuring an outstanding all-inclusive user experience that captivates the intricacies of community partnerships in our game. 
  • Our original vision for the land portion of Game of Silks was to implement a stable fee that essentially taxes our players, community, and partners. 
    • However, upon reflection, we concluded that imposing a tax, which amounted to taking a quarter of every dollar earned by those not currently owning land, was not the current right approach for us.
    • We are revisiting Silks Land and we're re-strategizing it. We are coming up with the best idea of what land truly is, the value of land, the value of stabling and the metaverse. But we need a little bit of time.
