Skilled metaverse personnel is the backbone of all development processes, creations, updates, and upgrades that users and gamers glorify. Simply put, without talents, the whole idea of Web3 or the NFT space will be a dream.
The popular gaming company, Konami Digital Entertainment, announced that it will be recruiting a “wide range of talents.” According to the company, the recruitment exercise aims to gather the best minds for “system construction and service development to provide new experiences such as WEB3 and Metaverse.”
The Japanese gaming giant took to its official site to post the announcement with the title “Recruitment of WEB3 and Metaverse Development Personnel”.

Similarly, the gaming company wants the public to know that non-fungible tokens (NFTs) can be used as in-game items. Also, they can be used by players to take part in events relating to the games and fan communities. Not only that but NFTs can also be used to interact with other communities and services to create more amazing user experiences.
Konami is developing a system that it refers to as “a unique digital item distribution platform.” The NFT (digital item) platform is designed to meet the requirements listed in the “Guidelines for blockchain games.” Notably, the “Guidelines for blockchain games” was compiled by the Computer Entertainment Supplier’s Association and the Mobile Content Forum.
Konami’s Stand in the Web3, Metaverse, and NFT Space
While traditional gaming models offer excellent gameplay and smooth interaction among gaming communities, blockchain gaming is here to offer players more engaging gameplay and features. As such, gaming giants like Konami have decided to venture into the web3, metaverse, and NFT space to give players fresher experiences.
Konami, for one, is not new to the use of non-fungible tokens (NFTs). For instance, in January, the Japanese firm celebrated its Castlevania franchise anniversary by launching an NFT collection. The collection of NFTs was sold via OpenSea, with Konami making more than 160,000 USD during the period.
“We will also be selling Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs) in an effort to preserve content that has been loved by our customers as commemorative art.” – Konami.
