Animoca Brands raises $65M at $2.2B valuation from Ubisoft and others

Animoca Brands has raised a new round of funding — the third time since May — and this time the company has scooped up $65 million at a $2.2 billion valuation. It’s another endorsement for blockchain gaming.

Just this week, similar blockchain gaming opportunities enabled Concept Art House to raise $25 million and Galaxy Interactive to raise a $325 million fund to invest in blockchain games. Last week, Bitkraft raised a $75 million token fund. Sky Mavis raised $152 million two weeks ago, Dapper Labs raised $250 million, Mythical raised $75 million, and biggest of all Sorare — a 30-person team that makes a blockchain fantasy soccer game — raised $680 million. That basically adds up to a summer of blockchain gaming’s historic boom.
