Animoca Brands will use the funds raised to make strategic investments and acquisitions, develop products and license intellectual property.

"We have set ambitious goals to create Web 3.0 and promote an open meta-universe that expands financial accessibility. [...] We believe we are still in the early stages of the new Internet revolution, and there are tremendous opportunities ahead of us in 2022," said Animoca Brands co-founder and chairman Yat Siu.

The company is the developer of NFT games F1 Delta Time, The Sandbox and others. It is actively investing in the non-interchangeable token market, including OpenSea, Dapper Labs, Bitski, Star Atlas and Axie Infinity projects.

During 2021, Animoca Brands announced a number of major ivestruns. The developer raised $88.9 million from Rothschild Dynasty fund RIT Capital Partners, Huobi and other investors in May, $50 million in July and $65 million in October at a valuation of $2.2 billion.

As a reminder, in September the company entered into a binding agreement to purchase a majority stake in the NFT platform Bondly.
