PlaceWar team is honored and thrilled to summarize and share the recent milestones to mark our project goals and phases. Together, let’s celebrate and read through PlaceWar’s summary of some of the events and unexpected advance developments that have resulted in twists and turns in our conquest.
Inception & Prototype
Since March 2021, our project genesis, game plot design, and economy design, our team has tirelessly done many prototypes and case studies to start and build for the future of the Gamefi industry. The most important advantage of a prototype is that it simulates the future product. It can help attract users before allocating any resources needed for implementation. You can test the design correctness before it comes into production to discover design errors.
While PlaceWar officially launched last September 2021, all the planning and conceptualizations started much earlier than many months back. Since launching, PlaceWar has grown very rapidly and achieved all our planned milestones. In summary, our evolutionary timeline of milestones can be classified into 10 significant events below:
