Metaverse has gained immense popularity in the gaming and industrial domain in the past few years. With social media giants like Facebook changing its name to Meta to venture around the field, one can easily assess the craze for the new-age technology on the global front. Keeping this in mind, Animoca has made this crucial investment. The firm aspires to launch new blockchain-based racing games for customers as well. Eden Games has a strong presence in the industry and accounts for collaborations with premium automotive brands like Porsche, BMW, Bugatti, BMW, etc. These valuable partnerships will help Animoca to create a robust collection of games for the racing fans.
The REVV Motorsport cluster includes a range of powerful racing games curated on the Polygon blockchain network such as the MotoGP: Ignition, Formula E: High Voltage, and Torque Drift. These gaming products are blockchain-friendly and integrate NFTs. The integration of NFTs will place Animoca in competition with other top-ranked firms like Deloitte. Recently, Animoca was forced to shut stop its F1 Delta Time game as it lost its license with Formula 1. F1 is quite popular in the sector with brands like Binance, Crypto.com, Fantom, etc. sponsoring teams in the sport. The Animoca group is working continuously to curate its native gaming ecosystem for users. It thrives as one of the most potent investors across the NFT and Metaverse space with strategic holdings in Axie Infinity and The Sandbox platforms.
