Koi Metaverse — End of Year Recap

5 min readDec 30, 2021

In the last days of 2021, we would like to take you back to the starting point of Koi Metaverse and together we can enjoy the 2021 journey and our achievements all over again.

2021 was a huge year for Koi Metaverse — not only for our team but for the whole fish army who built it with us. We want to take this chance to meditate on our journey and, more importantly, to thank you for making this community a noble purpose to work for and for being a part of this incredible project.

But before that, we have a historical year to reflect on.

The ominous start

2021 had an ominous start. with the Covid-19 pandemic sweeping the world and resulting in unprecedented lockdowns, tribalism and divisiveness began fueling our nerves. While, with all these, humans continued the mission of finding life on Mars and began private explorations into outer space.

It might be the most surreal year we ever had. With forced physical and political limitations, we humans are going virtual. With the world getting accustomed to working, closing deals, building businesses online, we moved our personal life to the virtual world too.

And in spirit, we are all heading toward the world’s wildest and weirdest space — Metaverse.

Koi Metaverse, so it begins.

In September, we decided to announce to the world Koi Metaverse, a project that aims to unlock the next-gen GameFi Metaverse economies by building the digital collectibles platform for virtual GameFi NFTs on multiple chains.

It is a next-generation infrastructure for issuing, trading, and liquifying GameFi NFTs from different chains like Ethereum, BSC, and so on. It is aimed at building a Metaverse dedicated to GameFi NFT assets.

Very quickly after the announcement, we launched our Genesis Collection Offering — Phase 1: Newborn, in which a limited NFT Collection of 5,000 NFTs of Koi Metaverse was introduced in different phases via a fair mint launch and a whitelisting round.

In October, the development of Koiverse’s core components and functionalities that include Mining, Breeding, and Pictorial Book were set in motion. It was an intricate network of smart contracts and carefully designed components, all designed to give you the best Metaverse gaming experience.

November 1st marked one of the most important milestones in Koi Metaverse history. We were thrilled to announce Koi Labs had secured $2.6 Million in Pre-A Funding successfully. And the fund raised was used to explicitly kick off and fuel the exponential growth of Koi Metaverse.

Crypto communities are the best when it comes to scouting and funding trailblazing projects. Nearly a month later, we announced Koi Labs has closed its Series A Round with a 2.7 million dollars investment. The valuation of Koi Metaverse A fundraising round is at 45 million dollars.

Starting from November, we witnessed precipitous price decline in Bitcoin, Ethereum, and many cryptocurrencies, which indubitably dampened the market activity and investor sentiment. However, building is the only way forward.

Around December, we decided to launch our first-ever public game testing on Koiverse’s three major components: Mining & Breeding & Mystery Box.

With game testing came the chances to improve. We launched a 20-day Report To Earn (RTE)/Bug Bounty Program, through which we received many small, general, and casual submissions, and a total of 27 detailed bug reports that offered us many high-quality points on how to improve our game and user experience.

A Brand New Roadmap

Coming into a new year, Koi Metaverse internally launched its new roadmap detailing a number of new developments. The Project Lead & Ecosystem Director Anetta Sultygova, during multiple AMAs, revealed the new plans for its growth in 2022, which included Koi Metaverse NFTs Genesis Collection Offering Phase 2, Mining and Breeding components launch, and Pictorial Book Mining.

And according to the Koi Metaverse pitch deck, the game itself will include many more features like Fishing and Pond, PVP/PVE battle, Island Defensive War, and NFT card game, all with different storylines and characters.

After the completion of the Koi Metaverse game, Koi Labs will move on to the next daunting mission, building the underlying infrastructure — Koi Network to unleash the liquidity of GameFi assets through a highly scalable and multi-chain marketplace.

As 2021 comes to an end, we want to sincerely thank you for believing in Koi Metaverse! It’s all possible because of our incredible community of contributors!


Stay tuned. Big things will happen in 2022! We can’t tell you everything that’s coming this year, but there’s never been a better time to build a true Metaverse.
