Gaming platform, SakuraVerse will get a $1 million investment from KuCoin Ventures, the cryptocurrency exchange’s investment arm. SakuraVerse, a web3 game platform that produces and incubates web3 games, is the first startup supported by KuCoin’s $100 million Creators Fund. The project will use the money to support its mission of helping speed up the world’s transition to the Metaverse through the power of its platform. Money from the investment will be used for team expansion, platform development and supporting the development of popular IP games.
SakuraVerse is driving toward its goal of making blockchain gaming more enjoyable for gamers by creating a decentralized architecture and integrating social features. Among its key achievements, the initiative has racked up more than 40 million players to this point. Its success story is partly due to the fact that it has access to a wealth of intellectual property and celebrity resources and an extensive blockchain knowledge pool.
What’s in the pipeline?
To link gamers worldwide, SakuraVerse will develop a large-scale gaming platform in the coming months. In addition, in conjunction with the Qatar World Cup, the platform intends to produce a soccer simulation game centered around the forthcoming World Cup. As a result, it plans to take this occasion to showcase its skills to the emerging markets of blockchain.
With the $100 million Innovators Fund, KuCoin hopes to assist young artists in showcasing their abilities to the world. Additionally, it is promoting the establishment of an open, free, equitable, and decentralized marketplace for NFTs.
