Animoca Brands invests in Cudos

04 June 2021 -- HONG KONG -- Animoca Brands announced today that it has invested in and partnered with the decentralized cloud computing network Cudos

 

The Cudos Network is a layer-one blockchain and layer-two computation and oracle network that ensures decentralized, permissionless access to high-performance computing at scale and enables scaling of computing resources to hundreds of thousands of nodes. Once bridged to Ethereum, Algorand, Polkadot, and Cosmos, Cudos will enable scalable compute and Layer 2 Oracles on all of the bridged blockchains.

 

By bridging the gap between gaming, blockchain, decentralized finance and NFTs, the partnership will further enhance Animoca Brands’ ecosystem with a highly scalable, low-cost layer-one blockchain and layer-two scaling network for new or multi-chain strategy blockchain gaming and NFT projects. 

 

Yat Siu, chairman and co-founder of Animoca Brands, commented, “We are thrilled to invest in Cudos and its highly scalable, low-cost layer-one and -two solutions that look to be ideally suited for blockchain gaming and NFT-based initiatives. We look forward to collaborating on various projects.”

 

Nuno Pereira, vice president of partnerships at Cudos, said, “Animoca Brands and Cudos are strong believers in bringing NFTs and DeFi in gaming to millions of users. This is a hugely significant partnership for Cudos, particularly in terms of user growth and network adoption. Animoca Brands’ consumer focus is well aligned with our vision, offering the potential for large-scale gamer adoption of Cudos technology and developers building DApps on Cudos Network.”
