MetaFighter is a Play-to-Earn skill-based fighting game that captures the essence of arcade fighting classics such as Street Fighter. Could you present a little about your team and yourself?
I’m the CMO for MetaFighter. I’ve been in crypto since 2016 and before that I was consulting with KPMG.
The vision of MetaFighter came about from our founder Serkan Duman. If you may allow, let me give you a brief description of Serkan’s background and how MetaFighter was born.
Serkan has been in crypto since 2014, but wasn’t actively working in this industry in 2016. He started working as a developer for a host of products and then started consulting with ICO’s as there were many ICO rating platforms.
Most of platforms were unfair and gave poor ratings. Seeing this as a weakness, he decided to make his own ICO rating platform based on smart contracts to give potential investors a good , fair and unbiased readout.
The idea came from a love of Serkan’s childhood passion…playing fighting games in the arcades and his experience in blockchain.
This was his opportunity to mix his dream and his work reality into one. Serkan’s vision was to pull from that experience of nostalgia and why kids and even adults could play these games for endless hours.
What was it about them that wasn’t tiring but instead it just pulled you in? He wanted to create that experience that gaming again but this time with a digital assets feature, role-playing and NFT’s.
Our team is global and we have developers, artists and marketing team from all over. Our 3d artists have experience from League of Legends and World of Warcraft. Their artistry is unparallel and we’re all in awe after each rendering. We have advisors from amazing backgrounds such as the CEO of Netvrk.
We are curious about your game, will you tell us more about it? Feel free to share videos or photos of your game with our community.
In its simplest form, MetaFighter is a Blockchain NFT Fighting Game.
There’s going to be many features that ensure that players can have fun for the long run: you level up your fighter, increase skill play, the market place for NFT’s, trading/rent/lend the land NFT’s and earn passive income.
The tournaments, regular achievements, challenger events, and the Arena NFT’s, where people can essentially have their own businesses developed in MetaFighter where they arrange their own tournaments, get their prize pools and create their own revenue stream through advertisements/sponsorships. Tons of features that Meta Fighter unique with even more to come.

We wanted to have MetaFighter as an easy to start game that was FUN to play and had earning benefits from the usage of blockchain.
We know that in-game resources are presented in the form of NFTs. Our community is certainly curious about how they can use NFT’s, also can you tell us about how a user can earn money on your platform?
The fighter NFT’s allow you have role playing game elements in the game and level up your fighter where you customize it to your own needs and earn EXP as you go.
For fighterNFT’s you can trade them, rent them, lend them, multiple different options that wouldn’t have been possible without blockchain and to our knowledge there is no other game that has it in this depth.
You can also earn by holding the $FIGHT tokens that you can obtain for getting certain achievements (more announcements on this soon).
Arena NFT’s which allow you to have built your own business in the MetaFighter metaverse and own part of the game.
You have revenue streams through organizing your own tournaments and fights with advertisements, sponsorships and all the other benefits of being an arena owner.
That’s mainly catered to Guilds, private investors, companies and other crypto projects. It’s the creme of our blockchain elements.
We’re really focusing on the gaming and metaverse economy and that’s what a lot of our development is towards. We live in a new world and its changing…thus so can be our way of earning.
Tell us more about the role of the $MF token and tell us whether you plan to develop the functionality and usability of the token in the future, if so, how specifically?
The token itself will be for our ecosystem and earning. You don’t need a wallet to start playing however you will be earning in MF tokens as well as purchasing in-game assets from the marketplace.
If you level up your fighter or purchase arenas… It will all be done with our native token. The value of our token will come from how strong we build our ecosystem.
This is why we wanted a wide variety ecosystem where players have multiple use cases for the token.
Can you tell us more about the partnerships that support the project? You have a lot of backers, it’s interesting, how did you get them? I’m also curious about what partnerships you need most, at this moment as a project?
Yes we are blessed with having so much interest in our game and our vision. Our network is very strong as we’re tied to some of the best in the industry.
Some projects have partners for the sake of having “partners” but ours are the real deal and have been actively involved in guiding us from pitfalls that they’ve experienced.
We have key advisers who have shared their experiences and prevented us from having pain points from their learnings. You have to keep in mind that this is still a relatively new space with so much that can go wrong…its nice to have their hindsight learnings that will help us from going in the wrong direction.
I just grabbed a quick screen print of some of our partners. What we’re essentially looking to do is have partnerships with other metaverses where we are not limited to one world. This space needs to grow to its full potential and we are just at the beginning. Keep in mind what we’re starting with now may not be what it will be like a few years from now. Thus we’re not limited in our growth and see the vision being exponential.
Why did you choose gaming and not another field? What do you want to say to our community to motivate them to invest? Surely people are faced with a choice, as you have quite a lot of competition and the gaming industry itself is growing.
Hmm that’s an interesting question. Well its kind of like why a doctor did not become a lawyer. You do what you’re best suited for. Our founder’s expertise and passion was in blockchain and gaming, thus the game was born.
We think our game will attract players based on the fact that we’re focusing on counting on the fact that our game will be FUN to play!
Have you seen some of the blockchain games…. I don’t even understand how some people can be there for a few minutes let alone hours. Earning will be a benefit…the objective of the game is to have FUN as we’re in the gaming market.
What is your plan for MetaFighter adoption among the crypto world, and what are your next marketing steps? I’m also curious, what will you say to people at the end?
Well right now we’re focused on our TGE. We will be having the launchpad sales over the next 2–3 weeks and TGE is planned for beginning to mid of April. Shortly after, around middle of May we will start up with NFT sales. Then right after that we will have the demo ready where we will invite the community to test it out, give us feedback and become part of our journey.
The demo test run will only be accessible to token holders. Based on community feedback we’ll make improvements and have another demo and look to have release of the actual game towards the latter part of the year. Towards Christmas time. So we have a lot of catalysts coming that will bring in new eyes.
Our marketing team is fantastic and are constantly engaging our community. So we have a lot in store and we strongly advise everyone to stay up to date.
Revenue is an important aspect for all projects to survive and maintain the project/company. How have you been able to build a complete project and what is the way to generate profit/revenue of the token? What is the income model?
We will be charging fees from some fo the transactional costs that are associated with the game. As well as from some of the NFT sales
Do you have tutorial videos so we can get to know your project more clearly or do you have a YouTube channel or something? can you share it with us?
Its a pretty easy game to get started and then build up your skill. Join our youtube and discord to see which fighters you can learn from to level up.
Did you consider community feedback/requests during the creation of your product in order to expand on fresh ideas for your project? Many projects fail because the target audience and clients are not understood. So I’d like to know who your ideal consumer is for your product?
Yes community is a big part of our project. As a way to engage and thank them, we have ongoing contests and games that we involve our community in.
