In order to get closer to its decentralization, Yield Guild Games established itself as a Swiss association in 2022 to employ a flexible, recognized and nonprofit legal structure that will cultivate a decentralized future for the guild. Yield Guild Games transitioned into the Swiss association legal framework because of wide range of advantages like more clarity and validity for the guild to signify that anyone who holds a YGG token is a member of the YGG association, allowing for meaningful participation. Token holders will receive limited liability protection by virtue of being a member and have the power to vote on governance.

YGG co-founder Gabby Dizon said: “The token purchase signals the confidence of our partners in YGG’s mission of empowering gamers through web3 gaming. The purchase will support the progress of the guild’s initiatives as it aims to provide the web3 community with valuable products and experiences. With the continued support of our partners, YGG remains confident in its ability to drive meaningful impact and shape the future of the web3 gaming industry.”
