We, the Metarace Team, are applying for the Waves DAO funding for our project development and marketing. We are applying for a 0.1 WAVES vesting per block in exchange for $RACE tokens.
Metarace is the only real 3D fast pace multiplayer game supporting Waves blockchain as one of two main chains (Polygon is second).
Metarace was benefiting other Waves projects since 2021:
- conducted IDO on SWOP in 2021, but all $EGG received were just burnt increasing the value of the $EGG token
- supports Ducks NFT (the most powerful characters in the game) and Waves Punks
Metarace development, operations, and marketing were funded by the team but it’s future was highly affected by the Waves.Exchange gateway issues.
Despite all the issues, the game was released for Windows, MacOS and iOS devices with unique features:
- Unique gameplay supporting multiple chains and NFT collections to attract users from other chains
- One of 3 games in the AppStore supporting NFT buys using In-App Purchase. We implemented a unique flow when a user makes IAP: App Store Transaction → $RACE → NFT. This scheme basically converts In-App Purchases (fiat buys) into $RACE buyback.
The requested funds will be used to implement the Metarace roadmap for the next six months. The goal of this roadmap is to attract new users and make a sustainable game tokenomics.
- Web-version release (HTML5 using Unity)
- New website development
- YouTube marketing campaigns after the launch
- New cars and maps development
- Marketing campaigns to attract users from other chains
- AI-generated trucks development

The proposed vesting conditions are:
- Waves DAO vests 0.1 WAVES per block to the Metarace team account (totaling 4320 WAVES per month)
- in exchange, once in two months $RACE team sends Metarace tokens back at a market rate at the moment of transaction
- by default, this agreement works till the end of December
- The funding can be extended with an additional proposal if the tokens exchange proves its long-term sustainability.
