September 13, 2022 – Paris, France
Rarible.com, a leading multi-chain, community-centric marketplace for NFTs, today integrated DOGA as a method of payment, enabling users to buy DOGAMÍ and Tezos NFTs.
DOGA is the native token of DOGAMÍ, the largest NFT play-and-earn AR mobile game deployed on the Tezos blockchain.
In this first listing, the DOGAMÍ community can now make direct purchases in DOGA on Rarible, providing collectibles are listed in the DOGA token by sellers. This will include the Alpha series one and two Dogamí puppies, DOGA Bones and the recently minted Gap x DOGAMÍ in-game accessories launched this month.
The latter is a capsule collection of 12,000 NFTs to personalize your Dogamí and was made in collaboration with GAP. Each wearable and accessory holds in-game perks. The mint was record-breaking for both GAP and DOGAMÍ, selling out in just under four hours.
Rarible.com has supported the Tezos blockchain on its marketplace since December 2021 but this recent integration facilitates user access to the entire DOGAMÍ collection with the game’s proprietary token. A total of two marketplaces now support DOGA, and this listing marks the first time the token is given utility on an external platform, extending its reach outside of the DOGAMÍ ecosystem.
The platform’s 2.5 million monthly users can simply connect to Rarible with their preferred Tezos wallet and enjoy seamless payments in DOGA to acquire any of the virtual companions (Dogamí) or accessories usable in the upcoming game. This integration also offers the additional benefit of enabling users to both purchase and sell all Tezos-based NFTs with DOGA.
The DOGA token
DOGA is the native token of the DOGAMÍ ecosystem and is based on the Tezos FA1.2 token standard. It is required by users to access the petaverse, serves as a digital voucher, offers governance features and can be staked for extra rewards.
It can be acquired via Gate.io, on Vortex AMM or bought with a credit card from the DOGAMÍ marketplace.
Alex Salnikov, co-founder and head of strategy at Rarible, said,
“Our team is committed to empowering the unique communities that make up the NFT ecosystem, and a big part of this mission is ensuring the Rarible platform offers features that support users.
“Integrating DOGA as a form of payment on our marketplace and increasing accessibility to DOGAMÍ assets is a significant accomplishment for both the Rarible and DOGAMÍ teams. We look forward to working with even more collections and projects in the near-term to enhance the NFT experience.”
Kristofer D. Penseyres, co-founder and CBO of DOGAMÍ, said,
“We are thrilled to have partnered with Rarible, one of the world’s leading NFT marketplaces. This is the first time DOGA payments are available outside of DOGAMÍ’s marketplace, and Rarible’s 2.5 million monthly visitors can use them. RARIBLE marks an important step in the development of our DOGA token ecosystem.”
DOGAMÍ is the first mass-market NFT play-and-earn AR mobile game, where you adopt and raise your 3D dog and earn DOGA in the petaverse. Co-founded in mid-2021 by Max Stoeckl (CEO, previously BCG), Bilal El Alamy (CTO, blockchain serial entrepreneur), Adrien Magdelaine (COO, previously Wamiz, pet industry serial entrepreneur) and Kristofer D. Penseyres (CBO, previously Sony Pictures, branding and partnership expert).
Supported by a European team of over 35, including art director Gregory Magadoux (previously Ubisoft). The company successfully raised six million dollars through world-famous investors such as Ubisoft, Animoca Brands and The Sandbox co-founders.
DOGAMÍ’s first NFT drop of 12,000 dog avatars sold out in just a few hours, propelling them to number-one place in terms of volume traded on major Tezos NFT platforms. For more information, please visit the website and follow the team on Twitter and Instagram.
