Tezos-powered NFT game DOGAMÍ has secured $6 million in funding round. The round was led by Animoca Brands, Ubisoft, and The Sandbox co-founders, whilst also receiving support from the likes of XAnge, Ghaf Capital, Blockchain Founder Fund, and Draper Goren Holm.
The successful funding round will allow DOGAMÍ to develop its Pet Ownership 3.0 experience, which is centred around AAA NFT gaming and blockchain technology. Whilst doing so, the funds will also be used to fundamentally enhance the way blockchain technology is used within the game.
With backing from multiple venture capital (VC) firms, as well as mainstream and blockchain-gaming powerhouses, it is an exciting time for the Paris-based company. Ubisoft’s head of Strategic Innovation, Nicolas Pouard, has stated that through the two company’s shared vision for blockchain gaming, Ubisoft believe that they can help open DOGAMÍ to mainstream audiences:
“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.”
DOGAMÍ is currently the most popular play-to-earn game project in the highly efficient Tezos blockchain ecosystem. As the recent funding round infers, the game is continually wanting to develop its ‘petaverse’, where users can adopt, raise, play, and socialise with over 300 different breeds of adorable 3D dogs, all whilst earning $DOGA tokens in the process.
