MegaFans, a California-based mobile gaming company, successfully launched a charity event designed to support CodetoInsipire.org, the first coding school for women in Afghanistan.
The event consisted of a play-to-earn tournament that used donated NFTs and crypto prizes to entice gamers to participate in a fundraising event.

According to a press release shared by MegaFans, the event was developed in partnership with DCentral, Launchpool, Listen Tokens, and Stamina, all of which donated NFTs and crypto tokens to support the cause.
The event took place during DCentral, one of the largest NFT and DeFi conferences in the U.S.
“One of the principles of MegaFans is to support women in GameFi. CodetoInspite.org and its program participants all take huge risks. MegaFans, Launchpool, Listen Tokens, and Stamina all agreed to support this important cause and we felt DCentral was the best place to launch this initiative,” said Jeff Donnelley, the founder and CEO of MegaFans.
MegaFans launched the charity event to celebrate its first profitable month since it launched earlier this year—the company surpassed their return on advertising spend (ROAS) in November. A portion of the company’s profits was used to launch a new eSports tournament and provide NFTs and crypto prizes to the tournament’s winners.
The company offers free-to-play and play-to-earn games ranging from quick-play contests to monthly tournaments with prize pools worth up to $10,000. Winners receive prizes either in the platform’s native token (MFANS) or NFTs, which are distributed on OpenSea.io using Polygon.
