Ready Games raised $3 million in a sale of its new AURA token to develop a web 3 mobile gaming arm. This unit will focus on “incentivizing web 2 game programmers to explore and switch to web 3 while distributing games ‘as normal’ through traditional app stores.”
“In a sense, we’ve unblocked for thousands of game studios the ability to be like a testnet,” said David Bennahum, CEO of Ready Games. “Through Ready, they can very quickly, in sub-30 days, take an existing Android or Apple game and bring it on-chain.”
The raise was led by Bitkraft and Hashed and included participation from Tribe, IOSG, Spartan, Mapleblock Capital, and Polygon.
The company hopes with these new funds, they can solve all the problems and challenges that accompany mobile GameFi adoption.
“You need to really educate people on the best practices, that’s how we solve these problems,” added Bennahum. “How do developers ultimately become owners of the blockchain piece of their game? I’ll just say the Ubisoft thing is really a separate issue, that’s the pitfall of going on-trend with something and not really fully thinking through the long-term value.”
