What is Crypto Gaming United (CGU)?
- Crypto Gaming United (CGU) is the largest gaming guild in the CIS region with exceptional growth in Latin America, Eastern Europe and SEA with over 6,500 players who are earning through its scholarship program.
- Gaming guilds like CGU purchase non-fungible token (NFT) assets which can be used for Play-to-Earn in the most popular blockchain-based games, and lends out these NFTs to players (also known as scholars), so they can afford to start playing without having to make a substantial upfront investment. In return, CGU receives a share of the in-game token earnings of its scholars.
- A differentiating factor between CGU and other gaming guilds is their commitment to leveraging gaming to empower its network of players in developing countries by upskilling them with a range of skill sets and capabilities beyond gaming.

What are the current use cases of CGU token?
Token rewards for staking CGU on the network.
Once CGU tokens start to be issued to the player community, the players will be able to use them as they see fit. This includes:
- Staking CGU for token rewards related to specific activities
- Staking CGU to vote and participate in the DAO
- Using CGU to pay for services within the CGU network
If players choose to stake their CGU tokens to vote and participate in the DAO, they will have an opportunity to democratically influence the DAO’s structure and operations. This includes voting on changes to the rewards and incentive structures corresponding to different player activities.
CGU token holders will also be able to gain:
- Access to education e.g training courses – financial management, blockchain fundamentals, introductory programming, digital skills
- Individual Mentorship navigating the digital asset ecosystem and establishing business entities with access to experienced coaches , mentors and experts
- Exclusive networking access and preferential rates for services
- Exclusive metaverse opportunities / access
- CGU’s core business model is similar to other gaming guilds. This involves acquiring income-generating NFT assets and lending them out. CGU will shoulder the risks in NFT asset ownership while players commit their labour in return for experience, education and income; and CGU earns a fair contribution of the players’ rewards.
- In Q4 2021, CGU has announce investments and partnerships with emerging play to earn projects such as Aavegotchi, Thunderlands, Cryptobots, Rising Suns, and Wave Ducks
- During these 3 to 5 years, CGU will allocate 40% of total supply (400,000,000 CGU tokens) based on contributing to the ecosystem and rewards will be distributed based on different activities such as staking, contributing to the DAO’s operations, streaming their game, completing education courses, earning above daily player optimization targets, and referring a friend to join as players
Key Risk Considerations
- CGU is a gaming guild token, and its value is potentially highly subject to the yields generated from CGU’s assets/NFTs in its treasury, the value of the NFTs it owns, and the earning performance of the gaming community in its guild. The token’s performance may be highly subject to the price risk associated with its portfolio of NFTs and the blockchain games CGU has invested resources into.
- CGU’s success factor is also highly dependent on its ability to manage the portfolio of NFTs and ability to attract strong gamers playing the latest blockchain games
- CGU is subject to the inherent risk of an emerging industry – the blockchain gaming and NFT industry which is still in their infancy stages with potentially high speculative risks from market participants
