After the closed beta version period, the open beta version service is scheduled to start on May 26.
For the beta version, a rewards-giving campaign is also planned after it is released.
The first game on PlayMining: “JobTribes”
JobTribes is an occupation-themed trading card battle game in which characters who personify various occupations are given special powers to fight each other. Users are able to convert the in-game coins(PALEcoin) into the cryptocurrency DEAPcoin through an appropriate process on DEA’s platform.
Digital Art, which can be purchased at the “Digital Art Auction” using DEAPcoin, can be used as a powerful battle card in JobTribes, which may greatly influence the outcome of battles.
Shin Kibayashi, one of the six top Japanese creators selected by Netflix in 2019, is in charge of the game’s story.

“Digital Art Auction”
Digital Art Auction is a service that allows users to buy and sell digitized artworks (“Digital Art”) drawn by popular creators from Japan and around the world. Its beta version was globally released on April 15.
Digital Arts that are sold on this platform are unique and exclusive, which is enabled through DEA’s blockchain based transaction system. The platform offers owners of these digital assets to use them in the games released on PlayMining.
In the first day of this beta service, Digital Art received far more access than the number of copies scheduled to be sold that day, and the cards for promotion sale were sold out. Moving forward, more releases from prominent creators are planned to take place.
