Singapore, Dec. 13, 2021 – OKEx Blockdream Ventures — the venture arm of a top cryptocurrency exchange and blockchain ecosystem OKEx — announced their alliance with play-to-earn blockchain game SYN CITY, which will be launching its mafia metaverse within days. Being a partner of OKEx Blockdream Ventures means SYN CITY will receive development access from a top crypto fund under the world’s leading crypto exchange such as operations consulting, a global customer support system and other resources.
SYN CITY, a free-to-play game founded by Tron’s former head of business Roy Liu, is the first-of-its-kind syndicate and mafia-themed blockchain game. The proposed “mafia metaverse” will introduce a unique governance system called Mafia-as-a-DAO (MaaD). MaaD incentivizes every player and allows them to join or create their own syndicates. SYN CITY's developers are gaming veterans from Disney, Ubisoft, Roblox, EA and Gameloft.
OKEx Blockdream Ventures is an investment institution under the worldwide top trading platform OKEx.com. They focus on exploring the best blockchain projects globally, supporting the most cutting-edge blockchain technology innovation, promoting the healthy development of the worldwide blockchain industry and focusing on long-term structural value investment. The initial capital of OKEx Blockdream Ventures is $100 million. They are committed to helping ideal entrepreneurs who contribute to the development of the blockchain industry to build great companies and bring global resources and historical experience to blockchain projects.
"Our exponentially growing community now has a clear and vital awareness of the full dimensions of OKEx Blockdream Ventures’ interconnectedness to the rest of the blockchain ecosystem," said SYN CITY co-founder Roy Liu. "This is an exciting alliance because a world-leading exchange’s token fund is now providing real-world fungibility to one of the few evergreen genres among all the entertainment products worldwide."
SYN CITY is historic and unique with its approach as a completely free-to-play and play-to-earn game. Thus, SYN CITY has received the backing of several prominent investors and VC firms. Days before SYN CITY's genesis launch, Twitch co-founder Justin Kan and Robin Chan's Goat Capital led an $8 million funding round, with additional financial backing from Spartan Group, Hack VC, A&T Capital, Animoca Brands and more.
