Finlab EOS VC Fund, along with Volksbank Mittweida eG, recently led a seven-digit seed funding round in a company called Spielworks. The same company that’s behind gaming platform and blockchain wallet provider Wombat, as well as the collectible/battle game Chain Clash.
The seven-digit investment into Spielworks will help the company expand the Wombat gaming platform “by extensively onboarding high-quality games” and to introduce new features for its users.
We are grateful for the strong partnership with FinLab EOS VC Fund and Volksbank Mittweida eG who share our vision in gaming as a catalyst for mass-market blockchain adoption and support us to further ease the entry barriers especially for first-time blockchain users and to bring the advantages of blockchain technology to today’s Web 2.0 gamersSwen E. Hallasch (Managing Director of Spielworks)
It is not the first time that an EOS VC Fund made an investment into a gaming company. In fact, in the last month alone EOS VC Funds have announce three investments in gaming projects, with Spielworks making it as the fourth. This latest investment could potentially set up a platform where some or all of EOS VC’s investments will be hosted.
This seems like the direction which is the most like, especially when considering most of these gaming projects will be new to the EOSIO ecosystem and each one of the games aspires for mainstream adoption. Spielworks’ Wombat gaming platform would help fast-track these aspiration as they provide for a simple onboarding user experience.
As a supporter of the EOSIO ecosystem with our fund and investments, we really like the approach of Spielworks – how it enables the unique solution for users to create free EOS token accounts easily. This is in the purist sense a true “game changer” as with Wombat users can get effortless access to the best blockchain games built using EOSIO software.Stefan Schütze (Managing Director of FinLab EOS VC Fund)
A few weeks ago Wombat became multi-chain platform with an announcement that they’ve added support for the Telos blockchain. Which means they can reach wider audiences as they now cater for both EOS and Telos blockchain. Considering that EOSIO blockchains are compatible, they could decide to extend their reach to other blockchains as well, while still providing free accounts.
The question still remains – is Block.one, or rather, will the EOSIO ecosystem lead the race toward mainstream adoption of blockchain gaming?
