Yearly Wrap Up by YaY Games
Hello, friends! The year is coming to an end, so we decided to speak to our audience and overview the most significant events that have happened to us. It’s been a long and tough year for all of us. We all had our ups and downs, but eventually, we managed to get here.
Without further interruption, let’s go back in time for a while and quickly recap the most remarkable milestones we’ve achieved so far!
IDO on prominent launchpads
Now to the most exciting part! YAY’s overall success is marked by a series of prominent events, key metrics, and indicator increases. The preparation for the Initial Decentralized Offering (IDO) of the $YAY token has been at the forefront of our work this month. Throughout the year, we managed to have IDOs on the following launchpads:
It was an exhausting but pleasant experience, and we’re glad that the release of the $YAY token is being met with such overwhelming enthusiasm by our investors and partners.
DEX and CEX platforms listing
Besides numerous fruitful IDOs, we managed to get the token listed on the most well-known and advanced DEXs and CEXs within the blockchain space, among which TraderJoe, Pangolin, and PancakeSwap for DEX listing and MEXC Global for CEX listing respectively.
New games release!
Along with wins on IDO launchpads and listing, we didn’t forget to make our audience happy with new game releases. In Q3, we successfully launched two competitive play-to-earn games.
- Doodle Pump is a remake of one of the most popular mini-games.
- YAY Pinball — a classic game, in a modern blockchain reinterpretation
And closed MVP of Bold Point game that is now accessible for early investors and partners to test.
Probably the most resonating release definitely should be ZEUS — Yay’s Launchpad for Initial Game Offerings (IGO). ZEUS is to help incubate projects, helping them grow from embryonic stages to full-fledged games. It also contributes to establishing long-term partnerships and support for all our incubated projects. The best projects are launched on ZEUS and integrated into our decentralized marketplace.
ZEUS has already helped us to launch successful rounds of IGOs with Dexsport and Telecraft leading to great cooperation and airdrops. With the launch of ZEUS — YAY Token price has had significant performance! The YAY Token is currently held on 2401 AVAX and 5649 BSC wallets.
Of course, we cannot pass by and not mention our most ambitious gaming project. Bold Point is an NFT-based RPG game exclusively on AVAX, where you can earn crypto by playing! With Bold Point, we’re presenting an open ecosystem for players based on our own unique side chain technology. Users can get income without any initial investment, creating a wallet, or any crypto industry knowledge. Moreover, it will help to save gas!
Besides, all items within Bold Point will be NFTs. Tons of unique items from necklaces to legendary swords and all can be found in the game or the marketplace and supported by a unique item generator based on the percentage change of drop, with a Virtual Routing and Forwarding (VRF) system under the hood. All in all, there can be 30 to 400+ builds of the same item.
Game development never stopped. So far, we have reached significant milestones, among which were the Bold Point MVP launch and Bold Point private sale holding in the framework of the IGO. The IGO was held in two rounds raising $300,000. In the first round, users were able to buy a $BPT allocation in $AVAX, and in the second, a substantial free $BPT airdrop was awarded for the ones who staked their $YAY.
Bold Point’s groundbreaking play-to-earn model will offer plenty of economic incentives, allowing players from all around the world to monetize their gaming experiences.

We gathered a big gang of companies and strategic partners who supported our product and facilitated its development throughout the year. Let’s highlight these folks!
- Ava Labs: We managed to establish cooperation and a long-lasting partnership with such a big player as Avalanche. As a result, we picked Avalanche, the solid base to build our games on.
Our GameFi ecosystem heavily benefited from the integration with the AVAX blockchain, both in terms of speed, scalability, and connectivity with other DeFi protocols. The support shown by every partner involved in the network has been fundamental for the growth of our ecosystem.
Ultimately, our final triumph and the great honor is being selected among a list of blue-chip DeFi projects for the $180M Avalanche Rush Program.

Bold Point IDO Sale will occur in early February of 2022, and the Beta release is scheduled for quarter one of 2022, followed by the 1.0 Version that will be live for everyone in the second quarter of the upcoming year.
One of the major milestones we are implementing right now is the implementation of an APY/APR system for the users who stake their $YAY in our platform. In addition to this, we plan to list up to ten plus projects in quarter one.
We want to express huge gratitude to all our users and partners who believe in YAY Games and continue to support our project. Without your help, we couldn’t have reached it so far. Thank you for staying with us and wishing everyone happy holidays and a fantastic New Year’s Eve.
