Oasys, the gaming-optimised blockchain protocol, has announced that it has closed its recent strategic funding round. With support from the South Korean gaming company – Nexon – popularly known for its MapleStory and Dungeon Fighter franchises and Galaxy Interactive.
According to the Oasys team, one of the core objectives of this funding round was to develop its ecosystem, strengthen its existing validator network and expand its pool of gaming partners. The partnerships forged with the investors in the strategic round will also continue to create additional opportunities for the growth of Oasys, along with its different stakeholders.
Following this funding round, Oasys also announced the closure of its public token sale, which ran from Nov 30th – Dec 4th. In an impressive demonstration of buyer confidence, the token sale reached its funding goal within twelve hours.
