Beryl was fascinated by the use of Bitcoin to reduce fees for cross-border payments and became a founding team member of Coins.ph in 2014. Her curiosity in crypto didn’t stop there and she later founded YGG with Gabby Dixon when they both noticed that Filipinos in Cabanatuan in the Philippines were converting NFTs earned from playing Axie Infinity into fiat money to put food on the table.
YGG helps anyone get access to play-to-earn games by renting out the in-game assets for players. YGG is on a mission to help players earn a living in times of crisis by playing games in the metaverse and support game developers early on.
