TreasureDAO's Trove Marketplace of NFT Games Powered By MAGIC

4.8 | by Sarah P.

What is Treasure and MAGIC?

Treasure is a decentralized video game publisher ecosystem on Arbitrum that uses its token MAGIC and shared resources to create an infrastructure that connects games and communities. 

What is TreasureDAO?

Treasure DAO


Treasure was founded on 5 September 2021, and was originally created as a Loot metaverse derivative, on Ethereum Layer 1. Treasure changed course and has since migrated to Arbitrum Layer 2, leading to lower transaction fees. 

The goal of Treasure is to allow communities to bootstrap new, decentralized metaverses. We believe that metaverses are community-written stories, and resources are threads by which the fabric of the metaverse is sewn.. The goal of Treasure is to allow communities to bootstrap new, decentralized metaverses. We believe that metaverses are community-written stories, and resources are threads by which the fabric of the metaverse is sewn.

Rather than players playing the games passively, NFTs would allow the community to create the IP and franchises to create immutable economies and stories. 

According to TreasureDAO, Treasure is the #1 gaming destination on Arbitrum with >$265M processed volume, 20+ games and >80k MAGIC holders.

Treasure's Metrics

Source: (as at 14 April 2023)

TreasureDAO comprises three key layers, (1) Cartridges, (2) Community, and (3) Infrastructure: 

  1. The cartridges are the games (“metaverses”) on which players can play, adventure and explore in. 

  2. The communities are the players who use MAGIC tokens to influence the direction of the ecosystem, game lore, utilization of resources, creation of resources and stories etc. 

  3. The infrastructure is the ‘shared economic engine’, a dual resource model, behind the entire TreasureDAO ecosystem, where ‘MAGIC powers everything and Treasure serves as the composable resources that connects it all together’. 

Games on TreasureDAO are linked-narratively and economically via MAGIC, the native token of Treasure, and the TreasureDAO community would use MAGIC to vote on which games to onboard, on MAGIC distribution, and on revenue sharing agreements for the marketplace. 

Magic Price Chart CoinGecko


Notably, MAGIC will have a limited supply of ~350 million tokens, and it adopts Bitcoin’s halving mechanism, with MAGIC halvings occurring yearly. In September 2022, TreasureDAO closed $3.5M MAGIC token sales at a fully diluted valuation of $80M. TreasureDAO will utilize the funds raised to grow its team, build better infrastructure and expand its portfolio. 

TreasureDAO is a community-driven project; proposals are discussed on the Forum and decisions are made via Snapshot voting by MAGIC holders. Treasure is open source and has a Game Builders Program to incentivize builders to build alongside the team to expand the ecosystem (e.g. lore, tooling, quests etc.) by providing rewards in MAGIC. 

TreasureDAO also launched their own “gamified” marketplace, Trove - The Trove marketplace is not just limited to trading with MAGIC and NFTs of games powered by MAGIC; collectors can also purchase a “wider range of NFTs, including art, photography, profile pictures, music, and more” with ETH.

TreasureDAO Games Powered by MAGIC

Currently there are 12 games powered by Treasure on the TreasureDAO website, of which I have tried 3 games - (1) The Beacon, (2) Bitmates, and (3) Smolverse.

Bridgeworld is the central metaverse in Treasure, which is a strategic resource allocation game. Travelers journey into Bridgeworld searching for ways to earn MAGIC coins and Treasure NFTs. 

Bridgeworld TreasureDAO


Bridgeworld features fantasy handpainted-esque graphics – visually captivating and with a hint of mystery.

In Bridgeworld, users can earn MAGIC. There are multiple ways to play the game on Bridgeworld; users can choose to passively stake their legions to earn MAGIC. Or players can send their legions on quests to find/earn treasures, or focus on crafting and staking consumables and Treasure. Or staking their legions to mine MAGIC at the Atlas Mine. Or they can even join a guild to be part of a bigger storyline.

However, before users can access Legions, Treasures and Consumables, mining modifiers, they must deposit MAGIC into the Atlas Mine. 

You can see how this plays out in the Bridgeworld Game Paths shared in the game’s whitepaper.

The Beacon

The Beacon


Beacon features pixel graphics with medieval-adventure music and dungeon combat sounds – the concept is simple, but the roguelite twist keeps the game interesting.

Based in the City of Altaris, players can participate in the game by either using the Free-to-Play starter avatar or their own NFT character. 

The character's main gameplay involves running through the dungeons, encountering enemies and discovering loot, in the form of NFTs. Beacon keeps the game fresh by releasing four new dungeons every week - players have up to Sunday to explore them all. This keeps the game fresh, especially with its roguelite elements like procedurally generated maps and permadeath (I personally kept dying during my dungeon runs). For tips, you can join the Discord group to get tips and strategies on the best way to navigate through the dungeon. 

Players can also meet the NPCs at the Tavern, and win rewards by answering the daily Tavern Quiz given by Igor – you can get answers from talking to the NPCs. As a reward for your efforts, you’ll receive rewards in the form of treasure chests. 

Beacon Gameplay


Players can not only customize their character’s hairstyle, weapons and equipment, but also customize their house with items earned in the game. Players can also have Beacon Pets by purchasing Beacon Pet NFTs.

Even though The Beacon has a Free-to-Play starter available, paid characters come with abilities and equipment. Do note that the game doesn’t have in-game instructions on the controls, although you can find them on the Discord channel. 

The game currently has only single player mode, however the team plans to release multiplayer modes in the future Alpha Version.

Thoughts on the game

  • I found the game's pixel graphic cute - the concept was simple but with roguelite and weekly new dungeons, it keeps the game fresh. The main gameplay is the adventuring into the dungeons, I personally kept dying during my dungeon runs. You can also answer daily quizzes given by Igor - you can get answers from talking to the NPCs. It's always fun to see what you get from the rewards treasure chests.

  • It is always good to join the Discord group to get tips and strategies on how to best navigate.

  • The game didn’t have in-game instructions on the controls - you can find them on the Discord Channel.

Bitmate features adorable slightly pixelated-2D art graphics which allows players to experience their own planets of the apes story.

Bitmates is a Massively Multiplayer Online game (MM) which allows players to drop by CastAway Cove and explore its beaches, forests, caves, dungeon and town using the Free-to-Play ape or the collectible NFT. Note, even though there is a Free-to-Play option, they require a minimum requirement of ETH in your wallet.

Skills available to work on include mining ores, chopping wood, fishing fish, cooking foods, masonry, short range sword fighting, long range shooting, long range magic spell casting. Players can compete on the leaderboard by gaining points through leveling up their skills to access new resources, items and rewards. Points can be earned through crafting items, completing the daily quests, fighting baddies and bosses. 

Players can also make friends with other players trade items, fight enemies and bosses together, as well as, join tribes, become Tribe elders and/or recruit players to their Tribes. 

Bitmates Gameplay


The game developers are constantly improving the game, with monthly Development Logs, which gives a leaderboard round up for the month, changes and/or improvements made as well as sneak previews on future new gameplay that are underdevelopment - such as new bosses, new regions, new items, increased level caps and more. 

There is a Free-to-Play option, however, players who own the NFT primates would get exclusive benefits like early access and virtual airdrops. 

Thoughts on the game

  • I found the process pretty ‘slow’ in the boot up of the game, as I had to log-in to my wallet and give approvals every time I wanted to join the game - it takes a good 2-3 minutes.

  • You need a lot of time and patience for this game. It's a much slower idle farming game than Axie Homeland (you only have one character to do the harvesting at any given time) - you have to harvest and mine a lot of raw ingredients to craft items, so it can take a long time. 

  • I really enjoyed fighting the enemies, it was also rewarding when they would leave items once they were defeated. Additionally, it was also very fun and helpful to fight the tougher enemies with the other Bitmates players.

  • The best part about Bitmates would be the community, so far the players are very helpful and always open to give helpful tips.

  • What I did enjoy was the in-game fighting of the NPC enemies, and you can team up with other players to adventure and fight the enemies.

Smolverse was the first proof of concept NFT project built on the Treasure ecosystem. Smolverse features simple bold pixelated art and very chill music – where players send their Smol NFTs to evolve.



NFT holders stake their Smol(s) or Swol(s) NFT(s) to grow IQ (i.e. brains) at the school or plates (i.e. muscles) at the gym. By doing so, it will unlock art upgrades, as well as allow for utilization of them as currency to purchase add-on items in the Smol Land. 

Smolverse evolution


Players can customize the Smol Wardrobe, mix and match Smol traits, as well as shop at the  Chop Shop - this includes, but is not limited to, purchasing and upgrading vehicle skins or redeeming MAGIC. 

The Smolverse also has most Smol NFTs which includes (1) Smol Pets, (2) Smol Cars, (3) Swolercycles, and (4) Smol Treasures. 

Thoughts on the game

  • There is a ‘Free-to-Play’ however players need to have a minimum of at least 0.00001 ETH in their wallet.

  • Free-to-Play allows you to only explore around Smolverse and enter buildings. However, despite being provided a Free-to-Play ape, it appears that we cannot grow its IQ/plate at the school/gym, thus the Free-to-play version has very limited game play. 

  • Nonetheless, the graphics are nice and the music gives a very chill vibe.

Thoughts on TreasureDAO

Having read and explored a bit about the TreasureDAO ecosystem of metaverse, I felt that this is a more sustainable model for building games upon. Treasure has created a vast ecosystem, which they call the Flywheel, which brings together creators, game builders, NFT holders, players etc. 

TreasureDAO Flywheel


This allows players to buy MAGIC and use it over a multitude of games, as well as NFTs that allow interchangeable usage in the TreasureDAO ecosystem. This interchangeability is more sustainable for the platform, the holders/players and even the game developers. 

  • For TreasureDAO: 

    • As long as their games remain popular and/or they continue to grow their game offerings TreasureDAO’s platform will be able to extend its lifespan. 

    • The interconnectivity of the games, via MAGIC, allows cross-selling and marketing that would grow as each game attracts more players.

  • For players/holders:

    • They can buy MAGIC and be able to access an array of games - rather than one token to one specific game. 

    • Additionally, if the player/holder gets ‘bored’ of the game, they can move on to other games without having to change their MAGIC to a different token. 

    • Players can also tap into Treasure's cross-game trading, which should provide higher liquidity with more members in the Trove marketplace. 

    • Theoretically the TreasureDAO liquidity should be better than a single game-single token game. If the player wants to leave the MAGIC ecosystem, as long as there are still players on the platform, they can trade their MAGIC tokens and/or NFT / currency to a bigger pool of players/holders.

  • For game developers:

    • They can cross-sell and build partnerships with other game developers - this includes cross-selling NFTs, and participating in TreasureDAO World Events. This also improves player retention and engagement.

    • Additionally, should their game ever lose its popularity (assuming the other games remain popular) the game developers can try marketing to players/holders on the TreasureDAO platform and/or they can cash in their MAGIC into a new game and/or trade out their remaining MAGIC to exit the ecosystem as (theoretically) there will be many other players/holders who would still want MAGIC to play on other games. 

As the team of Realm put it, TreasureDAO is an interstate highway system. Members of the community embark on their own adventures, road trips, where they can take various ramps to different metaverses on TreasureDAO. Treasure's ecosystem has provided players, NFT holders and game builders a platform for an evergrowing highway to bring players on endless road trips.
