PlayMining GameFi Platform Launching New Game PicTrée Partnered with TEPCO Power Grid

Launching April 13 initially in Japan's Maebashi city, "PicTrée -Grid Grab: Capture the Current-" is a DePIN-integrated Play & Earn game that will bring communities together to contribute to society in a new and exciting way.
SINGAPORE - March 22, 2024 - PRLog -- Digital Entertainment Asset (DEA), a Singapore-based global Web3 entertainment company and owner of the popular PlayMining GameFi platform, has announced the official launch date of their new game "PicTrée -Grid Grab: Capture the Current-" on Saturday April 13, 2024. PicTrée is developed in partnership with TEPCO Power Grid, Japan's largest and the world's fourth-largest electric power company, together with Greenway Grid Global, a power utility business development venture.

PicTrée is an Inspect-to-Earn team battle game in which teams of players physically go out into their real-world communities to take pictures of TEPCO's electric power assets, such as utility poles, steel towers, manholes and handholes. By uploading images of the aging public infrastructure, people are able to help TEPCO mitigate a labor shortage of utility pole inspectors and contribute to the upkeep of their own communities. At the same time, they can receive rewards for their efforts in the form of Amazon gift certificates and PlayMining's proprietary DEAPcoin ($DEP) token.

"Since our founding in 2018, this is the biggest step we have taken toward realizing our dream of truly improving society through Web3 games that reward players as important stakeholders in the entertainment ecosystem," said Kozo Yamada, Founder & Co-CEO of DEA. "We call this new business model 'Gamified Work', and are actively working on applying it to a wide variety of industries through several exciting partnerships in development."

The #GamifiedWork model uniquely merges elements of Web3 gaming with the "Decentralized Physical Infrastructure Networks" (DePIN) model, making it possible for physical infrastructure companies to gamify and outsource parts of their business operations to a decentralized community of gamers.

Capture the Current in the PicTrée Utility Pole Battle Game

PicTrée is a free-to-play mobile game that encourages players to get outside and explore their communities by foot — in this respect, it is somewhat similar to the still-popular Nintendo game Pokemon Go.

PicTrée players can join one of three teams named Ampere, Volt or Watt. Teams must battle to earn points by photographing TEPCO's power assets and connecting the most power poles on a grid map to link the longest electricity wires. The teams are ranked and rewarded according to how many points they earn.
