Following its investment in dapp data outfit DappRadar, Naspers Ventures has gone back into consumer blockchain as the lead investor for Gods Unchained developer Immutable.
It was the lead investor in a $15 million Series A round, together with Galaxy Digital’s $325 million EOS-focused Galaxy VC fund (despite Gods Unchained running on Ethereum), and existing investors such as Apex Capital.
Better, faster with VC cash
As for the cash, Immutable says it’s “planning to pour it into development and marketing for Gods Unchained and the Immutable Platform.”
“This round of financing helps us accelerate the speed and direction by which we approach that reality. One acceptance criteria for investors was ensuring they shared our passion and vision for the future,” commented Immutable’s CEO James Ferguson.
“Not only do our new partners exceed these expectations, but they just so happen to be the best in the world at what they do across our relevant domains.”
Gods Unchained is currently coming to the end of its beginning.
Available in open beta, its Genesis Sale of cards pack will be retired and their stats locked down on 10 October.
