South Korean blockchain investment firm Hashed, which has become a top backer of Web3 with investments of over $320 million in the last year alone, is now also one from the main backers of the Apeiron project, arguably the most exciting new blockchain game in the world. market.
Foonie Magus, the development studio behind the game, has now raised over $17 million in investment capital for the Apeiron blockchain game, which is based on both non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and Play-To-Earn (P2E). Even before the actual seed investments, the project was able to raise $3 million, which was later followed by revenues of $10 million and $4.5 million from the sale of NFTs, bringing the total to a total of 17 US$ estimate . 5000000.
Hashed is a team of blockchain experts based in Seoul and Silicon Valley. The company has quickly become one of the leading blockchain investment firms in Asia and now manages a $200 million investment fund with a particular focus on projects with high growth potential. Based in South Korea, the investment company is fundamentally open to new technologies, which is why it sees Web3 as an opportunity “to announce a new future where technology makes people move forward and not the other way around”. Already in 2016, Hashed had invested in the two now quite successful NFT projects Axie Infinity and The Sandbox.
In addition to Hashed, Apeiron is also backed by financiers such as DeFiance Capital, Morningstar Ventures, Spartan Group, and DeFi Capital. Gaming guilds GuildFi, Yield Guild Games Southeast Asia, Avocado DAO, Ancient8, and Snack Club are once again on board as cooperation partners. All business partners have been selected based on their strategic added value and long-term vision for Web3.
Apeiron is the first NFT game in which players are literally in god mode. Players take on the role of a so-called Godling – a newborn god – and must use their powers to punish or aid the Doods that inhabit the Apeiron Godiverse. Additionally, the games can control huge elemental avatars that compete in real-time map-based battles.
The P2E game Apeiron has a unique three-token system where players can purchase NFTs representing planets, stars, and powerful relics. Playing can in turn earn tokens, which in turn can be traded on the in-game market for real cryptocurrencies.
Frank Cheng, CEO of Foonie Magus and creator of Apeiron explains: “We have been working on this project for six years now, our team is made up of 28 developers who have been pouring blood, sweat and tears into the game for more than five years. blocked. Now all the hard work is paying off and the dream is slowly becoming a reality. We are thrilled to have partners by our side who share our crazy vision. The gaming industry can expect something big that will be a great experience for everyone and that we can all be a part of.
With the end of the seed funding round, Apeiron is now transitioning to a private and community-controlled funding round, after which the blockchain game introductory token sale is expected to take place at the end of May. Foonie Magus wants to earn at least US$10.7 million from these three rounds so that the game can finally start no later than the fourth quarter of the current year. Additionally, Apeiron Planet’s NFTs are already available on the major OpenSea marketplace, with the minimum bid being 0.15 Ether (ETH).
Apeiron is the world’s first NFT-based P2E game about the gods. The unique card-based battle system is combined with God-bound simulation gameplay in the style of classics like Populous and Black & White. Players can first create entire planets from a bird’s eye view or God Mode before descending onto them as their avatar to explore their universe. Development can be pushed to an end point followed by an Armageddon, allowing further progress on the one hand and adding excitement on the other. Players can either play in guild versus guild environment and cooperate, or compete in guild versus guild.
Apeiron is based on a three-token architecture. This means that the ecosystem consists of three separate tokens that govern the ecosystem, namely: the governance token, the P2E token, and an earnable team token.
