Inclusion in the List was determined by experts at PocketGamer.biz and external advisors, based on a combination of factors including the most exciting games, genuine innovation, revenue, influence, potential, company growth this year, and other criteria.

Animoca founder and director Yat Siu said: “We are immensely proud that PocketGamer has named Animoca Brands one of the world’s top mobile game companies.

“This recognition from the game industry will help us to advance our innovative strategy to leverage gamification, blockchain, and artificial intelligence as we continue to forge new paths in mobile development.”

Animoca will utilise the capital raised to research and develop novel products based on blockchain and artificial intelligence.
