South Korean gaming blockchain Wemix, whose WEMIX token has a diluted market cap of $2.6 billion at the time of publication, will discontinue block minting rewards “to further solidify the fundamentals and practical aspects of WEMIX tokenomics.”

According to the Jan. 9 announcement, the total supply of WEMIX “will either remain fixed or be reduced from the block height in which the discontinuation of block minting rewards is implemented” by the end of Q1 2024.

Before the announcement, the WEMIX token had an annual inflation rate of 3.15%. Wemix said it is committed to “achieving a deflationary economy” by removing block minting rewards and the token burn of gas fees used on the network.

Instead of block minting rewards, the blockchain will distribute WEMIX tokens held by the Wemix Foundation as incentives for the community and its decentralized application developers. “This distribution method can be sustained for approximately 20 years,” it claimed.

As a result of the change, the Wemix blockchain will undergo a hard fork.

On Dec. 22, Wemix’s parent company, Wemade, launched a $100 million Web3 fund in partnership with Singaporean venture capital fund Whampoa Digital to invest in digital asset projects in the Middle East. Whampoa Digital will also become an ecosystem partner to Wemade’s Wemix Play Center in the Dubai International Financial Centre Innovation Hub. 

Wemade is the creator of the popular Legend of Mir series and has claimed that Mir 4, released in 2021, was the most successful blockchain game at the time.
