BENQI dives into the Metaverse, starting with Imperium Empires

3 min readDec 1, 2021


As part of BENQI’s vision to continually innovate and ingrain itself within the Avalanche ecosystem, we are thrilled to officially announce our first GameFi — Metaverse collaboration starting with Imperium Empires, Avalanche’s very first AAA GameFi Metaverse Project.

Imperium Empires

Imperium Empires is the World’s First AAA GameFi 2.0 project, building on Avalanche. It is headed by a team of experienced game and blockchain developers that aims to address GameFi problems of today such as the lack of high-quality graphics, hyper-inflationary NFT supply and the missing element of seamless integrations with existing DeFi protocols.

The project features a space themed ecosystem that offers a range of gameplay from Player vs Enemy (PvE) to Player vs Player (PvP), building itself off novel deflationary NFT burn economics. Players will also be able to band together through guilds within the game and team-to-earn.

BENQI 🤝 Imperium Empires

As part of the official partnership between BENQI and Imperium Empires, we’ll be exploring ways to incorporate the BENQI protocol within the Imperium Empires ecosystem.

An example of this would be incorporating a banking system within the Imperium Metaverse that’s powered by the BENQI protocol and its existing liquidity. That way players of Imperium would be able to earn yields on their assets and focus on the game. All done without worrying about the security of their funds. This also drastically reduces the DeFi learning curve for 3 billion gamers over the world — who can now enjoy the benefits of DeFi without requiring an in-depth understanding on concepts like TVL and liquidity mining.

Other exploratory topics include BENQI branded NFT drops (priced and presented based off DeFi 2.0), a BENQI guild within the Imperium Metaverse and other exciting Metaverse integrations.

By diving into the Metaverse with Imperium Empires, we look forward to working towards a vision of open financial systems to enable an even greater distribution of ownership back to the user.

Built on Avalanche’s highly scalable network, BENQI’s vision of bridging decentralized finance (DeFi) and institutional networks starts by launching BENQI on the Avalanche C-Chain. Through BENQI, Avalanche users will be able to earn interest on their assets, obtain credit through over-collateralized loans and earn QI governance tokens as rewards for participating in the protocol.
