Ethereum’s Fun and Games
One of Ethereum’s many use cases is dApps – decentralised applications including games built on the network. Ubisoft, the video game publishing powerhouse behind Assassin’s Creed and Far Cry, this week added five new crypto startups to its Entrepreneurs Lab accelerator program. Currently, Ubisoft is the only traditional video game company to get involved in the crypto scene. Will more join them?
Ubisoft’s main initiative is an exclusive gateway to their variety of networks, offering crypto game developers mentorship, brand partnerships, and venture capital. Ubisoft’s Chief Studios Operating Office, Virginie Haas, says it’s an opportunity not to be missed by startups
“The Entrepreneurs Lab is a great program for innovative startups to collaborate closely with Ubisoft and for us to mutually benefit from each other’s expertise and ideas.”
This week, Ubisoft Entrepreneurs announced their so-called ‘season six’ startups, welcoming aleph.im, Crucible, Guild of Guardians, Horizon Blockchain Games, and NonFungible. Guild of Guardians is a mobile role-playing game developed by Stepico Games while Horizon Blockchain Games is set to release Skyweaver, a card-battler game.
