United Kingdom, June 4, 2021 — Cudos announced today that Animoca Brands, which recently achieved unicorn status following an $88,888,888 funding round, has joined the Cudos ecosystem as a shareholder and token holder. The partnership is set to accelerate the growth of Cudos Network’s user base and decentralized application library. 

Founded in 2014 and based in Hong Kong, Animoca Brands specializes in digital entertainment, blockchain gaming, nonfungible tokens and artificial intelligence, and is the latest global brand and ecosystem to partner with Cudos.

Ranked in the Financial Times’ list of High-Growth Companies in Asia-Pacific 2021, Animoca Brands has built a sizable portfolio of blockchain technologies and investments, including Dapper Labs (NBA Top Shot), Axie Infinity and OpenSea. The partnership between Cudos and Animoca Brands will focus on bringing developers and users to the Cudos Network to grow value for the ecosystem. 

By bridging the gap between gaming, blockchain, decentralized finance and NFTs, the partnership will further enhance Animoca Brands’ ecosystem with a highly scalable, low-cost layer-one blockchain and layer-two scaling network for new or multi-chain strategy blockchain gaming and NFT projects within its industry-leading portfolio. Therefore, the combined technology and services will have the potential to benefit millions of gamers, both within Animoca Brands’ ecosystem and Cudos’ fast-scaling partner ecosystem, including semi-conductor giant AMD and its global community of over 100 million gamers. 

With Cudos’ mainnet due to launch in 2021, the partnership is set to significantly raise the profile of the Cudos Network, encouraging a new wave of adoption from the gaming and blockchain space.

Nuno Pereira, vice president of partnerships at Cudos, said:
