Lucid Sight collaboration
Animoca will receive a share of net revenues generated by Lucid Sight’s games in Asia, as well as a share of net revenues generated by the games outside of Asia in connection with distribution and publishing deals and other agreements brought by Animoca.
In addition, Animoca will have the right to use assets from Lucid Sight original games in at least two of Animoca’s blockchain titles as non-fungible tokens (NFTs).
Animoca is developing blockchain licencing relationships with prominent sports franchises (recently signed with Formula 1), positioning the company at the forefront of the industry and providing a distribution platform to launch blockchain games and NFTs.
Animoca co-founder and chairman Yat Siu said: “We are proud to partner with Lucid Sight and its deeply experienced game development team as we continue to work with major brands to create blockchain-based true digital ownership of in-game assets.
“Baseball is one of the most popular sports in Japan, Korea, and Taiwan - territories that are also pioneers in blockchain adoption - and we see high potential for MLB Champions in the region.”
Animoca has also participated in a US$6 million round of funding into Lucid Sight. However, the amount invested by the company was not material.
Investors in the round included Salem Partners, The Galaxy EOS VC Fund, Digital Currency Group, Breakaway Growth, and Frontier Venture Capital.
