What does this partnership mean for Sky Mavis and CyberKongz?

There is a reason why CyberKongz chose Sky Mavis for this collaboration. Apparently, there’s always been a connection between Axie Infinity players and CyberKongz fans.

CyberKongz Council Member Henry the Grape explained:

“We were really born out of the Axie community. So when Ronin had the opportunity to continue building our ecosystem on top of Ronin, it was a no-brainer.”

Myoo from CyberKongz also mentions:

“By partnering with Sky Mavis, we will have a unique opportunity to accelerate our already established gaming ecosystem, while also being able to grow our holder base.”

For Sky Mavis, it will undoubtedly benefit from this cooperation. The creators of Axie Infinity are working on growing a large blockchain gaming ecosystem. The CyberKongz NFT will be the first profile picture set minted on Ronin.
