There are many common misconceptions in the world of cryptocurrency trading and they often get in the way of new entrants to the market. These myths are perpetuated by less-than-charitable media coverage, technical misunderstandings in the public, and general fear that comes along with any new technology.
Because we’ve seen the potential for this industry and how it can shape the world, we wanted to do our part to bust these myths and alleviate some of the hesitations that are natural when encountering cryptocurrency for the first time. The way we’ve done it is by developing a soon to be released immersive metaverse game called Kusunoki Samurai that takes players on a whirlwind adventure through 14th-century Japan. This game is natively integrated with cryptocurrency, and it aims to subtly disabuse some of the following notions:
You need a large amount of capital investment to trade cryptocurrency. This couldn’t be further from the truth and our game should help people to recognize that. When you play Kusunoki Samurai, you are unknowingly participating in cryptocurrency trading because you earn our token, the Kusunoki Token. This lightweight introduction to the field shows that you don’t need lots of money to get started, but merely to be involved in an ecosystem where value is being transferred.
Trading cryptocurrency requires significant technical expertise. Because the technology is new, it can often feel unapproachable to newcomers who believe that they don’t have the necessary technical expertise to participate. We hope that the game will show people that your technical skills are not what matters here. Rather, it’s your willingness to engage with the community and learn along the way. Gaming makes for a great way to encourage interaction without overwhelming people with unnecessary details. It’s the perfect trojan horse.
You need advanced hardware to trade in cryptocurrency. This is another myth that we hope to bust through the game by showing people that you can trade cryptocurrency from a smartphone. While our game is going to be a metaverse game, the trading of the token surrounding it will be widely accessible across various platforms on your device of choice. Showing players how to access these markets should help to alleviate some hesitation and remind people that the way you interact with the market doesn’t matter.
Those are just a few of the myths that Kusunoki Samurai aims to illuminate. Our hope is that the game will serve as an onramp for new curiosity and interest in the cryptocurrency space. We believe that this is an important mission because this technology represents the future of our financial world. It’s crucial that everyone feels welcome in the community and that financial inclusion is at the heart of everything that we do.
It’s for these reasons that we see Kusunoki Samurai as so much more than just a game. If you’re on the fence about cryptocurrency trading and you’re a bit overwhelmed by what is out there, this is a great place to start. Get your toes wet and before you know it, we can show you why this space is so incredibly exciting.
