23 September 2020: Animoca Brands Corporation Limited (“Animoca Brands” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce it has acquired the business and trade name of NinjaStickers™ from SingularCK Limited (the “Acquisition”). NinjaStickers (www.ninjastickers.com) is a provider of official MotoGP™, Moto2™ and Moto3™ non-fungible token (NFT) collectible stickers.
Animoca Brands acquired NinjaStickers from SingularCK for an undisclosed sum, which the Company does not consider to be material. NinjaStickers provides NFT cards, or collectible stickers, of intellectual properties based on MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3. This collection-based sticker asset type is not to be confused with the utility-based NFTs that Animoca Brands is already producing as part of its upcoming game based on MotoGP, which will launch on the Flow blockchain (refer to the announcement dated 22 September 2020).
Following the Acquisition, Animoca Brands will market and sell the NinjaStickers MotoGP-branded assets on its digital collectibles subsidiary Quidd, Inc. (https://quidd.co).
The acquired NinjaStickers assets will also provide additional utility for the Company’s recently launched REVV fungible token for motorsport gaming (https://revvmotorsport.com). Animoca Brands has enabled its REVV token to be used for select purchases on the OpenSea marketplace: for a limited time, Animoca Brands will sell NinjaStickers’ MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3 NFT card packs at the price of 1,888 REVV each. This promotion runs until the end of September. To buy the NFT card packs, please visit the OpenSea marketplace at https://bit.ly/3iTA1aX.
MotoGP is the oldest motorsports championship in the world, featuring the fastest riders and the most technologically advanced prototype racing motorcycles on the planet. Animoca Brands previously secured licensing rights from Dorna Sports, S.L. to develop and publish a blockchain manager game and collectibles based on MotoGP (refer to the announcement dated 26 September 2019).
Yat Siu, co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands, commented: “MotoGP is watched by an audience of over 400 million people worldwide and shown by more than a hundred media broadcasters, and Animoca Brands is now a major provider of blockchain goods for MotoGP, Moto2, and Moto3. Previously these licensing rights were split between Animoca Brands and NinjaStickers, so this consolidation makes strategic sense and will provide a better and more valuable experience for fans.”
Founded in 2017, SingularCK is a London based company acting as a financial and blockchain-skilled software service provider.
