Binance Labs, the venture capital arm of the digital exchange, Binance, has announced an investment in open-sourced game Nine Chronicles. The strategic investment will support the company in the expansion of its team. The partnership between Binance Labs and Nine Chronicles will be a long-term undertaking. It is meant to leverage the increasing adoption of crypto, blockchain and metaverse.
The latest announcement from Binance Labs came almost three weeks after the company led the $60 million investment round of Multichain. In addition, in early January, the venture capital and innovation incubator of Binance, invested almost $12 million in WOO Network.
Commenting on the development, the two co-CEOs of Planetarium, Kijun Seo and JC Kim expressed their confidence that the partnership will help the network reach the masses. They added that the open-source gaming and decentralized concepts adopted by the network will be central to helping hit the target.
