Ethlas’ Vision

Enabling the next billion crypto users to play games to earn crypto and NFTs

What is Ethlas?

Ethlas.com — The gamified rewards platform for the next billion crypto users.

The high barrier of entry to crypto makes it difficult for the masses to be plugged into the imminent and emerging crypto financial system. Ethlas seeks to bridge the mass market into the crypto universe by a set of fun gameplays, and awarding physical rewards.

The Ethlas gamified rewards platform combines yield farming, casual games & NFTs. We aim to be the leading stake-to-play, play-to-earn platform globally that will redefine the cross-section of gaming and crypto rewards. Imagine a world where all gaming activity happening worldwide is replaced by crypto games where users can earn real rewards, above just wasting time and burning money!
