AB has now partnered with Myria, a blockchain gaming company, to build a mobile-based cricket game. The game is the first celebrity-backed cricket blockchain game.

The game will be exclusively available on mobile and features blockchain play-and-earn models and additional features such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).

The aim of the game is to introduce blockchain gaming to 2.5 billion cricket fans worldwide, an aim that de Villiers is very excited about.

“It’s always been about cricket. It’s always been about entertaining the crowds. I’m constantly looking for ways to change the game and building my blockchain-enabled cricket game on the Myria platform is the next step for me.” he said.

As one of the greatest players of all time, Myria is also confident de Villiers’ millions of fans worldwide would want to try the game.

The company believes that many can look forward to enjoying a cricket game and earning while doing so.

The game is expected to launch in the coming year, with players able to download it for free on the Apple App Store and Google Play Store from 2023.
