This is all made possible through the implementation of non-fungible tokens, or NFTs — crypto tokens that are each verifiably unique, despite being issued under the same specifications as other tokens of their kind.

    Animoca Targets Non-Crypto Gamers by Developing Big Brand Games
    The CEO of Animoca Brands, Yat Siu discussed his firm’s strategy of bringing the benefits of blockchain technology to non-crypto-native games with loyal audiences. While investment is heating up in the blockchain gaming sector, a common criticism of crypto-powered games has been how to secure users from outside of the cryptocurrency space. Blockchain gaming powerhouse, Animoca Brands, believes that acquiring mainstream games with loyal players and exposing them to the benefits of blockchain and distributed ledger technology (DLT) is the best way to attract new audiences into crypto. Cointelegraph spoke to Yat Siu, the chief executive of Animoca Brands, to learn about his firm’s strategy for bridging the gap between the mainstream gaming and crypto worlds. Animoca Brands has quickly emerged as a leading firm within the crypto gaming sector, securing a global licensing agreement with Formula 1 ahead of its F1 Delta Time release, and announcing a $3 million initial exchange offering (IEO) for its title The Sandbox on Binance’s launchpad last week. Siu described The Sandbox as a prime example of how strategic acquisitions have allowed Animoca to capture non-crypto-native audiences and expose them to blockchain technologies. “When we do acquisitions, we're not buying companies that are necessarily blockchain-related,” Siu said.
