In addition to this, the Founder and CEO of Kingsway, Manuel Stotz said:
“The emergence of digital property rights, whether via Bitcoin or NFTs, is perhaps the greatest opportunity for financial inclusion for the bottom three billion frontier and emerging market consumers, as well as an opportunity for a more decentralized and thus more equitable global internet.”
The Further Utilization of the Fund Raised in Gaming Spaces
The funding raised is considered to be a strategic milestone that will be positioning Animoca Brands for further aggressive growth as it continues to bring digital property rights to the gamers.
This will be done through the use of blockchain and non-fungible tokens enabling powerful benefits such as play-to-earn abilities and digital asset interworking.
Animoca made an announcement in the month of February revealing that its entire REVV Motorsports ecosystem is going to be deployed on the layer-two sidechain of Polygon in order to alleviate the high gas fees associated with using the mainnet of Ethereum starting with F1 Delta Time.
