Following the social investment platform, Kikitrade’s plan to widen its participation in the blockchain gaming (GameFi) and non-fungible token (NFT) market, a Hong Kong-based startup company Animoca Brands has increased its shareholding in the firm to become the second-largest shareholder.
GameFi, also known as play-to-earn (P2E) games, has seen a recent upsurge enough to dominate the blockchain market for the past several quarters.
With comprehensive financial infrastructure, Kikitrade and Animoca Brands plan to promote new and upcoming GameFi projects with mutual cooperation.
Sean Tao, Co-founder and CEO of Kikitrade, said:
“The Kikitrade and Animoca Brands partnership is a turning point for enabling mass adoption of GameFi. With its social capabilities, Kikitrade will create an educational platform that connects GameFi players and CeFi users – on one hand streamlining GameFi players’ ability to monetize their gaming experience, while on the other hand introducing CeFi users to the GameFi ecosystem.”
Kikitrade started in 2020 with an aim to re-invent the crypto investing experience to allow professional traders, everyday investors and crypto-beginners to learn and invest in cryptocurrency. Currently, the company is serving in Hong Kong, Taiwan, SEA and Australia.
