Tezos-backed DOGAMI secures $6 million in funding from Ubisoft, Animoca and The Sandbox
Operating as a mass NFT market and Tezos-backed blockchain game, DOGAMI has successfully secured over $6 million in funding from the co-founders behind Ubisoft, Animoca Brands and The Sandbox. Some of the follow-on investors include the likes of XAnge, Blockchain Founder Fund, Ghaf Capital and Draper Goren Holm.
In addition to this funding, some of these co-founders, specifically Sebastien Borget and Yat Siu, will be operating as members of DOGAMI’s advisory board, allowing it to take its combination of NFT gaming, investing and pet ownership further
DOGAMÍ CEO and co-founder Maximilian Stoeckl added the following: “We believe strongly in the opportunities & the empowerment that Web 3.0 has to offer. The early support of world-class investors as well as advanced negotiations with strong commercial partners are highly reassuring and encourage us in our beliefs.”
It’s this combination that has drawn in the likes of Ubisoft, as the company’s VP of its Strategic Innovation Lab Nicolas Pouard points out.
“At Ubisoft, we believe that blockchain holds a key to the future of the videogame industry, bringing new possibilities for players and developers alike… We think DOGAMÍ shares this vision and contributes to the opening of blockchain gaming to mainstream players.”
Being built on top of the Tezos blockchain, DOGAMI allows players to enter its metaverse of NFT ownership, gameplay and investing, while providing a more energy efficient, environmentally friendlier underlying blockchain protocol. In the game, players will be able to discover and raise any number of the hundreds of NFT pets, while earning DOGA tokens for in-game activities.
