Harmony, a scaling solution for the Ethereum network, is now allowing users to import tokens from the Bored Ape Yacht Club collection as proof of ownership for DeFi Kingdoms, a play-to-earn designed with useable non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Peter Abilla, a Vice President of Marketing at Harmony, wrote on Twitter that members of the BAYC community can now validate their digital collectibles as NFT passports for profile pictures in the game.
Leo Chen, a team member at Harmony, told CoinTelegraph:
We wanted to give all NFT holders more utility and options to display their NFTs and participate in the Metaverse. Bored Ape Yacht Club holders are the first choices. The cross-chain identity creates a secure and easy way to do so without putting their assets at risk.
However, it seems not all members of the cryptocurrency community are happy with the news as some say that the BAYC collection has nothing to do with a fair economy due to a relatively small amount of token holders.
Launched in 2018, Horizon supports interoperability between Ethereum, BNB Chain and Chainlink.
To The Moon earlier reported that BuzzFeed News found out that Greg Solano and Wylie Aronow might be the ideological founder of the buzzy NFT collection. Prior to BAYC, Greg Solano was an editor and book critic. Aronow's occupation before the well-known collection came to life remains unclear.
