Southeast Asian gaming startup Ampverse today announced the launch of its new business division that aims to seize opportunities in the Web3 space: Ampverse Web3.
The launch of this new business division followed a US$12 million Series A funding round that the company announced in March this year. Having secured a funding led by global investment fund Falcon Capital, Ampverse named plans to further expand to Indonesia and the Philippines.
In a press statement, the company said that the division will further strengthen the Ampverse ecosystem of e-sports teams, talent, and products and portfolio of IP.
Ampverse Web3 has been created to build highly engaged gaming communities through a play-and-earn guild, creating digital fan collectibles and bespoke metaverse experiences, leveraging its portfolio of esports IP.
“We have and always will believe in the power of community. This latest venture will allow Ampverse to take tens of millions of gamers from Web2 to Web3 through a series of innovative products, ultimately delivering upon our vision of bringing inspiration to every gamer, everywhere,” says Ampverse CEO Ferdinand Gutierrez.
