Voodoo announced its entry into the Blockchain Gaming Industry with a $200M investment

Blockchain is the way of transforming mobile gaming to its next step

One of the leading developers of hyper-casual games in the gaming industry, Voodoo has recently talked about their move into blockchain gaming, this transition to a new segment has also led them to invest around 200M to mold the world of blockchain gaming and NFTs.

Voodoo aims to bring the blockchain paradigm to more studios

Voodoo’s vision in investing in blockchain gaming is to bring more casual and mobile users and support any young or promising studio to reach success in this segment. They have managed to diversify into the casual gaming segment in just a couple of years, already generating $200M run-rate revenues, and still in hyper-growth. They have also acquired 8 companies in 2021 alone.

There are few occasions in life when we experience a technological breakthrough that transforms industries. Blockchain will especially disrupt gaming, as players are already used to buying digital assets. This technology will give players true ownership of their digital assets, creating deeper interactions between players – collecting, trading, selling in-game digital currencies and game assets – which will increase fun and engagement.

This will also enable players to make a profit from their assets, opening up a new “play-and-earn” model.

Our vision is to bring the blockchain paradigm to more casual and mobile users, and to help any young or promising studio reach success in this segment.

Alex Yazdi, CEO of Voodoo
