Announcing our Latest Funding Round to accelerate the development of the Future of Blockchain Gaming
We are very excited to announce today that we have raised $40 million in financing from top blockchain funds and investors, including Binance Labs , NEO Global Capital , 500 Startups , and more. The new capital will allow Cocos-BCX to accelerate development of our new gaming platform and support the company’s growth and expansion into new markets.
Since our first demo in March 2018, we have doubled our team to 40 people, opened new offices in Beijing, Seoul, Tokyo, San Francisco and expanded strategic partnerships with many awesome blockchain partners like Loom, Ontology, Nebulas, and Cell Evolution , with more to come.
Gaming has always been in our DNA, so we have a deep understanding of what the game developer community needs in order to succeed with blockchain.
More importantly, we understand what type of development environment is most effective across all blockchain platforms and operating systems. With this new injection of capital, we will push the blockchain gaming industry forward and focus on penetrating the market faster than anyone else in this space.
Leveraging the success of Cocos2d-x (world’s #1 Open-Source game development platform) and our existing community of 1.1 million developers, we will bring together the world’s best game developers and blockchain engineers to build and collaborate on the platform while also soliciting feedback to help refine and improve the platform.
Our vision is to become an end-to-end platform where game developers can build, deploy, operate, and scale their games across all major blockchain platforms.
“Gaming has potential to be the low hanging fruit in blockchain industry yet the application in this space remains largely untapped,” said Ella Zhang, Head of Binance Labs. “Cocos is one of the largest gaming developer communities in the world, and Haozhi, Richard and their team have proven track record in gaming space. We hope Cocos-BCX initiative will drive more real use cases for crypto adoption, and reveal more potential of blockchain technology.”
Building an entirely new blockchain gaming platform from the ground is no small undertaking but we are delighted that our hard work and ongoing efforts thus far have been validated by so many investors and influencers from the blockchain and gaming communities. See our media mentioned on Forbes, Venture Beat, Pocket Gamer and more.
The journey just began and more adventures to come!
