About The Team You Are Joining
Honeyland is a team of proven entrepreneurs and executors. Their ability to plan, build, and execute to perfection is only outshined by their ability to get users excited about what theyโ€™ve built and scale whatever it is theyโ€™re working on. Their backgrounds are as diverse as they are distinguished, and they are poised to launch one of the most successful web3 game ecosystems ever built.

What We Are Building
We are building a mobile-first blockchain strategy game where players assume the role of a Beekeeper to manage their colony of Bees and Lands. Players can choose a universe to explore and send their Bees on missions to compete against other players for NFTs and the scarce Honeyland resource HONEY. As players earn HONEY and NFTs, they can use these to grow and strengthen their colony of Bees, purchase more Land, participate in the Honeyland economy, or convert them into cryptocurrencies.
The Honeyland game is the entry point into the Honeyverse, a metaverse that allows developers to leverage the Honeyland players, assets, and economy to create games, experiences, places, and things for players to interact with and enjoy.
