Yield Guild Games’ IDO raises $12.5M from just 32 participants


Yield Guild Games (YGG), a collective of play-to-earn gamers, completed its initial DEX offering via SushiSwap’s Miso platform in under a minute earlier today.The offering saw YGG raise roughly $12.5 million  on July 27, with the token sale distributing 25 million tokens or 2.5% of the project’s 1 billion token supply via a dutch auction. The YGG tokens were sold for roughly $0.50 each.Disappointed investors criticized the sale after 32 wallets exhausted the allocation in 31 seconds, even though YGG’s Discord membership exceeds 47,000. A single address appears to have been able to nab 4.5 million tokens or 18% of the coins available in the offering, although onlookers have speculated the purchaser was likely a pool.32 participants / Biggest ape (looks like a pool) did 4.5milly pic.twitter.com/EpR69WXKTT— Darren Lau (@Darrenlautf) July 27, 2021

YGG co-founder, Gabby Dizon told Cointelegraph the project has been in touch with some of the buyers, noting the purchasing addresses represented groups of long-term community members who had “[pooled] capital together for a large purchase.”“So it’s not just 32 whales that bought in, it was 32 wallets that represented different groups of long term believers of our vision.”Dizon also noted the token is scheduled to begin trading on SushiSwap later today with plenty of liquidity, providing investors additional opportunities to access the YGG token.In a blog post, Dizon thanked the project’s community for its support and participation, stating: “We are looking forward to kicking off our community airdrop where YGG tokens will be given to the most active and engaged members of our guild, especially those who have been with us from the beginning.”Moving forward, Yield Guild Games will soon complete a community airdrop distributing tokens to its most active members. The project will also launch a community mining program soon.YGG also intends to expand its sponsorship program, which facilitates the donation of Axie Infinity in-game currency Small Love Potion (SLP) to YGG players for breeding Axies — collectible fantasy creatures that inhabit the game.Last month, YGG raised $4 million in a Series A funding round featuring participation from Mechanism Capital, ParaFi Capital, and lead investor Bitkraft Ventures.
