The objective of this new fund is to invest in the video game industry, including those from Web3. It should be noted that the gaming industry generated several billion dollars in 2021. In this sense, the press release from the fund specifies:
“Games will continue to play a central role in how people socialize, play and work in the future, and the fund will invest in game studios, game experiences, its community and its infrastructure. In the long term, we believe that games infrastructure and technologies will be key elements of the metaverse, an opportunity that dwarfs the current $300 billion games industry. »
Thus, the team intends to diversify its investment in the different levels of the industry. Be that as it may, the latter requires special attention, in particular with the arrival of emerging technologies.
