The game's initial success at this stage can be attributed to its experienced core team which comprises professionals from renowned gaming companies like Tencent, NetEase, Lilith, etc. Inspired by the ancient classic and beloved game Mahjong, which continues to be popular among over 600 million players worldwide, Brice, the game designer of Mahjong Meta reveals that the idea of the game comes from the inherent mathematical beauty of Riichi Mahjong, blending strategy and probability, along with its enduring appeal in strategy, social engagement, gameplay deduction, and cultural significance. Mahjong Meta embraces the "Play to Own & Skill to Earn" philosophy, aiming to establish a blockchain-based Riichi Mahjong esports community and a Mahjong-themed gaming park, co-built with players and supported by asset ownership through blockchain and token-based economy.
