5 min readDec 31, 2023

Dear MOBOXers,

This year was transformative for MOBOX after a pivotal shift towards a co-created and co-governed game production dedicated to building open and sustainable economies. In the coming year of 2024, MOBOX will stay focused on this vision while empowering the community to contribute the content and decide the evolution. This will be achieved through the launch of Dragonverse Neo as the first-ever 3D open world on BTC L2, the enhancement of key infrastructure including the game engine and MOBOX L2, the refinement of tokenomics and the upgrade of branding.

Let’s dive into what you can expect from MOBOX in 2024.

2. Co-Created & Co-Governed Open Economy

2.1 Co-Creation

Every MOBOXer can customize the game with a user-friendly 3D engine. User-generated content keeps the game fresh and stabilizes the in-game economy. It empowers players to enrich the game’s world, fostering a strong connection and commitment.

  • User Development Toolset: pre-made resource kits for creating equipment, characters, maps and game levels, user-friendly graphical interface, no coding or modelling skills required. (powered by our strategic partner Project Twelve)
  • Workshop & Open Marketplace: for publishing and trading user-generated items, providing a link for users to monetize their creative ideas.
  • Creator Incentive Fund: attract creators to engage in the MOBOX ecosystem. Incentives are aligned with the contribution and popularity.

2.2 Co-Governance

As a MOBOXer ($MBOX / veMBOX holders and MODragon / MOMO owners) you can decide the future path of MOBOX through decentralized governance.

  • Governance Homepage: MOBOXers can submit and vote on proposals through the embedded snapshot space. The homepage transparently displays on-chain governance details, including vote statistics, results, treasury status, and implementation progress.
  • Governance Forum: This is the birthplace of new proposals, providing a platform for MOBOXers to express their thoughts and opinions on every aspect of MOBOX and burn $MBOX to initiate the proposals. AI-powered multilingual translation is available to overcome language barriers.
  • Governance Mechanism: MOBOXers can vote on proposals based on different weights. Once a proposal secures a majority vote, it enters a Time Lock queue, whereupon it will be automatically implemented following a designated time frame.

3. Game Engine: A Catalyst for Game Booming

MOBOX will enhance the game infrastructure, a comprehensive toolkit for developing ecosystem games with a user-friendly interface. Building a game engine aligns with MOBOX’s vision of fostering a co-created and co-governed game production, aiming to achieve the following goals:

  1. Enrich Game Content: Users can easily contribute game contents with a user-friendly engine, which also improves the quality via built-in templates and resource kits.
  2. Accelerate Game Iteration: The engine enables rapid development, making it possible to swiftly implement community-approved proposals. This empowers MOBOXers to actively co-govern more aspects of the game.
  3. Elevate Game Quality: It is feasible to deliver cinematic-level rendering effects and exquisite art styles, even amidst rapid iteration.
