Indubitably, GameFi and Metaverse have been the most popular concepts of 2021 and probably in the years to come, in crypto or not. These concepts are so intriguing and expansive that people begin to take them as the starting point of the next millennia narrative. Within this booming, or even chaotic environment lies countless opportunities. In the 3rd quarter only, NFT sales surged to $10.7 billion, up more than eightfold from the previous quarter.

Koi Labs is creating new kinds of virtual assets on Blockchain.

Certainly we are the true Metaverse believers and builders who have strong motivation to unlock the Next-Gen GameFi Metaverse Economies. In Metaverse powered by Blockchain, we have seen the following core disruptive innovations:

  1. Blockchain infrastructure leads to the property rights revolution. With blockchain, we can imagine a world in which contracts are embedded in digital code and stored in transparent, shared databases so that everyone could have the real ownership of properties.
  2. Non-Fungible Token (NFT) changes the types and rules of games. NFT is a new form of unique digital asset designed to show someone has ownership of a unique virtual asset. It will become a new trend of virtual assets for creating, trading and collecting.
  3. Tokenization and crypto creates brand-new business models. Crypto unlocks new rules of business models in game, like the concept of “Play-to-Earn” which created new types of jobs and professions in digital Metaverse economies.

In our minds, if the Metaverse revolution is coming, it should be much more than a phenomenon. And Koi Labs plans to realize that. With time, we believe you will witness us unfolding the power of a complete ecosystem, a self-circulating economy, and upon that, a fun game where you can play to earn and trade to earn.

$2.6 Million Secured in Pre-A Funding Round

We are thrilled to announce Koi Labs has secured $2.6 Million in Pre-A Funding successfully.

With this incredible news, we are happy and honored to share with you that the funds we raised are all coming from some of the most renowned venture capital firms and communities in the crypto space.

We believe these names and the people behind them can help us take our idea and project it onto the world stage, on which it takes industry expertise, a network of established contacts, and enough finance to develop our idea from seed funding to long-term growth.

The fund raised will be used to explicitly kick off and fuel the exponential growth of Koi Metaverse, whose mission is to unlock the next-generation GameFi and Metaverse economy.

Without further ado, let us introduce to you the backers and believers of Koi Metaverse.
