Halliday – $6M for “Buy Now, Pay Later” NFT Gaming Project

The gloomy trend in the cryptocurrency market does not prevent the emergence of new innovative projects. And one of the sectors currently in the spotlight is none other than crypto-gaming associated with NFTs. A variation of this digital economy is applied to the virtual worlds of video games, which are not always very well received by players. And in some cases a brake on the ability to integrate or develop within certain projects due to the need to purchase digital objects before starting. But that could easily be a thing of the past, with the introduction of a “buy now, pay later” solution. Explanations…

The emergence of games to earn does not only followers. Like the massive arrival of NFT tokens in the gaming sector, often associated with this new concept. A variation of what is known by the generic term metaverse, with some added cryptocurrency to make it all that much more… enriching. But it is this newly speculative aspect that worries historical players whose goal is to have fun without having to invest. Because it is sometimes necessary to transfer large sums of money in order to gain access to certain projects.

A reality that largely underlies the ongoing shift from “play TO earn” to “play AND earn” recently initiated by the emblematic Axie Infinity project (AXS, SLP). With the completely new possibility of being able to integrate your virtual universe without having to go to the checkout to buy a character in the form of NFT. Playing to win cryptocurrencies often requires investing funds to join the adventure. Why the Halliday project proposes to develop a “buy now, pay later” solution.

Halliday – Buy your NFTs now and pay later

There is no limit to what the cryptocurrency industry can produce. And in this case it is a new project named after the famous structure of venture capital Andreesen Horowitz (a16z). The latter stems from a recent funding round that raised the sum of 6 million dollars. And as a goal supporting the development of the startup Halliday and its deferred payment offering for gaming NFTs launched last November. The latter presented by its founders as “the first solution that allows ownership of blockchain and metaverse gaming assets through subsequent payment”. A whole program!

We want to make gaming and metaverse NFTs much more accessible to gamers. (…) We [leur permettons] to pay over time and access an NFT while paying. »

And according to the items provided by startup Halliday, its offering was soon to see the light of day – in a beta version – in the game League of Kingdom (LOKA). All in the form of a simple payment option at the checkout. With a means presented as “transparent and secure” to acquire NFTs “over time”. And the opportunity to start playing immediately when this new type of consumer loan is validated. And there’s no doubt that in full play, this kind of purchase should find rabid supporters for “not having to wait months to roll this new car on the track”.

Crypto-gaming – “Unsatisfactory” security in the face of inevitable major hacks

The latest hack suffered by the Solana network is just one […]


Knowingly, of course, property NFT that person belongs to the Halliday Project until full payment is made by the player. And that at present no specific fees are mentioned for this type of consumer loan procedure. Because after all, this is just a classic deferred payment formula applied to the crypto-gaming sector.
