三星再次为区块链公司Animoca融资5,000万美元

2021-7-4 17:14


六周前,Animoca Brands筹集了8888888美元,估值为10亿美元。今天,Animoca又筹集了5000万美元的第二笔资金,这轮融资的总投资达到了138888888美元。这些投资者包括Gobi Partners、三星风险投资公司(Samsung Venture Investment Corporation)、Coinbase Ventures等。


Animoca以开发包含不可替代代币(NFTs)的区块链游戏而闻名。该公司与f1、曼城和摩托大奖赛等都有合作关系。Animoca在《F1 Delta Time》中推出了《F1 Delta Time》,这是一个与Dapper Labs的《NBA Top Shot》类似的平台,并发行了与种族相关的不可替代代币(nft)。它与MotoGP和曼城的协议是区块链比赛。


不同的F1车队已经在F1 Delta Time之外签署了他们自己的NFT协议。虽然许多运动队都遵循了NFT和粉丝代币协议的趋势,但到目前为止,区块链游戏的授权数量却很少。


Animoca最近扩大了其NFT发行服务,并与拜仁慕尼黑(Bayern Munich)和伦敦的皇后公园巡游者(Queens Park Rangers)团队合作。此外,它还与奥运会有合作关系,将奥运会徽章授权为nft。

metaverse和play-to-earn


Animoca还有其他成功的产品,如《沙盒》和《塔实验》。然而,Animoca刚刚开始探索的一个领域是它即将发行的付费游戏。


Animoca与奥运会的协议包括开发一款在线游戏,玩家可以在游戏中赢取徽章。除此之外,Animoca还是Yield Guild Games的投资者,这是一家推动玩家通过玩电子游戏赚取生活工资的公司。


该公司还与Hedera Hashgraph合作,使足球NFT所有者能够以Hedera的网络加密货币HBAR的固定数额将数字资产卖回给俱乐部。这将是第一个解决方案,使nft可用于担保数量的加密资产。它有可能通过降低风险来吸引市场的兴趣。


Animoca的部分投资可能会用于这些开发项目。该公司还表示,部分资金将用于收购和授权流行的知识产权。


Gobi Partners的执行合伙人Chibo Tang表示:“通过围绕数字商品所有权创造游戏和世界,Animoca Brands带来了真正的模式转变,将权力放在用户而不是开发者身上。”“我们正在看到一个全新的生态系统的出现——一个真正的元宇宙。”


与此同时,Dapper Labs以26亿美元的估值筹集了3.05亿美元,并可能以75亿美元的估值筹集更多资金。

Six weeks ago, Animoca Brands raised $88,888,888 at a $1 billion dollar valuation. Today, Animoca raised a second tranche of an additional $50 million, bringing total investments in this funding round to $138,888,888. The investors included Gobi Partners, Samsung Venture Investment Corporation, Coinbase Ventures and others.

Animoca is mostly known for the development of blockchain games that incorporate non-fungible tokens (NFTs). The company has a partnership with Formula 1, Manchester City, and Moto GP, to name a few. Animoca launched F1 Delta Time with Formula 1, which is a similar platform to Dapper Labs’ NBA Top Shot and issues non-fungible tokens (NFTs) relating to the races. Its deals with MotoGP and Manchester City are for blockchain games. 

Various F1 teams have signed their own NFT deals outside of F1 Delta Time. While many sports teams have followed the trend of signing NFT and fan token deals, so far, fewer are licensing blockchain games.

Animoca has recently expanded its NFT issuing service and has partnered with Bayern Munich and London-based team Queens Park Rangers. In addition, it has a partnership with the Olympics to license Olympic pins as NFTs. 

Metaverses and play-to-earn

Animoca has other successful products such as the games The Sandbox and Tower Experiment. However, an area that Animoca is just beginning to explore but could have significantly aided the valuation are its pay-to-earn upcoming launches. 

Animoca’s deal with the Olympics includes the development of an online game where players will be able to earn the pins. In addition, Animoca is an investor in Yield Guild Games, a company promoting a play-to-earn economy where players can potentially earn living wages playing video games. 

The company also has a partnership with Hedera Hashgraph that enables football NFT owners to sell the digital asset back to clubs for a fixed amount of HBAR, Hedera’s network cryptocurrency. This would be the first solution that makes NFTs redeemable for a guaranteed amount of crypto assets. It has the potential to attract interest in the market by making it less risky.

Part of the investment in Animoca is likely to go towards these developments. The company also said some of the money would be used for acquisitions and licensing popular intellectual properties. 

“By creating games and worlds around ownership of digital goods, Animoca Brands has introduced a true paradigm shift, placing power with users instead of developers,” said Gobi Partners’ managing partner Chibo Tang. “We’re seeing the emergence of a completely new ecosystem – a true metaverse.”

Meanwhile, Dapper Labs raised $305 million at a $2.6 billion valuation and will potentially raise more at a $7.5 billion valuation.
