3 min readSep 26, 2021


What is Bakumatsu?

Bakumatsu Finance(AKA Ryoma) is an aggregated gaming, game launching, and asset-transaction platform, so-called GameFi DAO. Within Bakumatsu Finance, you can enjoy games with the Game Center, trade game tokens with BakumatsuSwap, trade game props, mint and sell personalized NFT in the virtual store. Through NFTs, RYMA token, and Token X-, Bakumatsu Finance has provided a one-for-all solution for gaming tokens, serving the entire gaming ecosystem and enabling each of this ecosystem’s participants.

Combines NFT and DeFi

1 ) Bakumatsu Finance’s economic system consists of homogenization Token X and NFTs(weapons, props, and other non-homogeneity assets). Interactions can be freely achieved through BakumatsuSwap and the virtual store. Users can participate in asset liquidity mining in BakumatsuSwap to obtain RYMA tokens.

2 ) The NFTs we will launch will not only be for collection and transferring properties. Their practical-use values will be reflected through the game. We will also develop a series of different types of games around these NFTs to increase the varieties of Bakumatsu Finance and amplify the concepts of metaverse or Gamefi. As a result, the playability and profitability will reach a balance and the players will also have more Play-to-Earn options.

3 ) In order to increase the liquidity of NFTs, we’ve also set up an automatic blind box auction system and a lending system.

4 ) Ethereum network’s congestion problem makes its gas costs remain at a high level , which has become an important reason restricting its development. Before it completes its ETH2.0 upgrade, we will provide solutions based on ZK-Rollup Layer2, providing users with a low-loss, high-performance experience.
