gumi Cryptos, a Japanese venture blockchain fund for mobile game developer and publisher Gumi Inc, is taking a stake in double jump.tokyo, a developer of blockchain games.
The study is working My Crypto Heroes, which entered a pre-sales period on September 21st of this year. In just ten days, the game produced about USD 160,000 in the digital currency of Ethereum. So, with My Crypto Heroes & # 39; released on November 30th, it became the number one app of Ethereum for active users of the first day along with the number of transactions on the platform. gumi is trying to help the company expand its reach.
Hironao Kunimitsu, founder and CEO of gumi Inc., commented on the partnership:
"We were impressed by the quality and momentum of interest in My Crypto Heroes, we believe that through this succession of equity, the allocation of new shares and the capital involved in our commercial alliance, we can offer global marketing know-how to double jump.tokyo, and both our companies can develop new successful blockchain properties using our intellectual properties and accelerating business development in the business blockchain. "
In addition, gumi is collaborating with TRON Arcade, an extension of the favorite TRON blockchain project that has just set $ 100 million to build a "blockchain game ecosystem".
With this partnership, the two will look for different blockchain games that will alter the way we approach digital experiences. "It's nice to see that a traditional game leader like Gumi is also paying attention to the emerging blockchain gaming space," says Roy Liu, Head of Business Development at TRON. He continues, "we both believe that blockchain games will lead to the next wave of adoption for nascent technology." There is a good chance that the first "killer" game Dapp will be the mass market use case that everyone is looking for. "
While many consider blockchain technology as a payment solution, this is not particularly interesting for most people. To introduce others and increase traditional adoption, the best approach is entertainment. Who likes entertainment more than anyone else? Players. The CEO of Gumi, Ray Zhang, is an agreement:
"Players are often the first to adopt any new technology." Although Gypt Cryptos is not just a game fund, we are delighted to co-invest with TRON Arcade on the best-placed startups to benefit from our entry services into the Japanese market and strong networks in the games, as well as the TRON platform and distribution channels.
