Animoca’s chairman and co-founder Yat Siu said: “Skytree is a company with a history of delivering high-quality products and who shares our vision on the future of nonfungible tokens (NFTs), so it’s a great fit with Animoca Brands.

“We’re extremely excited about the opportunity to bring Trillionia to blockchain - not just because it’s a polished game that recently won the top digital entertainment award in Hong Kong, but also because its board game and collectible trading card game elements make it an ideal candidate for blockchain and NFTs."

Skytree’s flagship game won an award last week

Skytree has expertise in trading card games (TCG), also known as collectible card games (CCG).

It is a multiple award-winning game development studio with a portfolio of successful titles including Hachi Hachi and Trillionia, which have 5 million downloads.

Trillionia is a real-time strategy card mobile game inspired by traditional board games such as Monopoly and just last week received a technology award in Hong Kong.

Skytree’s management team includes accomplished entrepreneurs and executives, as well as one of the world’s top eSports players of the game Hearthstone®.
