GameFi Strategic Investments
Binance Labs made a strategic investment into the rising Discord RPG game Tatsumeeko.
Announced via the Binance Blogs on June 9th, Binance Labs, the venture capital arm and accelerator of Binance, makes the move to support the immersive and growing popular modern fantasy MMORPG-lite game. Binance Labs is among a number of other investors that took part in the US $7.5 million seed round led by DeFiance Capital, Delphi Digital, and BITKRAFT Ventures. Among the investors were prominent crypto players such as Animoca Brands, Dialectic, Mechanism Capital, Folius Ventures, Big Brain Holdings, Coinhako, and GuildFi, among others.
“Tatsumeeko has demonstrated their capabilities and consistent community growth and product development,” notes Mia Mai, Portfolio Manager at Binance Labs. “Binance Labs is very excited to support the team as they look to scale the game and improve the gameplay. We believe that Tatsumeeko could help push Web3 games to the mainstream market.”
The new funding round will see Tatsumeeko continue to develop the MMORPG-lite experience and see a future release on Ethereum and Solana. Additionally, in July 2022, Tatsumeeko will begin the first selling phase of their Aethereal Parcels, a piece of land that will offer the holder utility and unique attributes.
