Ethereum-based digital card game from Horizon hits $5 million in sales
Online gaming companies look rather solid in the blockchain world by securing millions in sales for their creations.
Horizon Blockchain Games is a blockchain-powered company putting itself out there as a creator of video games for dreamers, futurists, and digital citizens. To kick off 2020, the company raised an additional $5 million in a round for their game SkyWeaver led by Initialized Capital. The credit for such turnover also goes to their new investors ConsenSys, CMT Digital and Regah Ventures, and the existing partners Golden Ventures, DCG and Polychain.
SkyWeaver is a digital trading card game built on top of the Ethereum blockchain network, paving the way for player-owned economies by leveraging blockchain technology. To make SkyWeaver possible, Horizon developed many unique protocols and transaction infrastructure for Ethereum.
"Through clever and careful design, we’ve architected an Ethereum-based blockchain stack for virtual worlds that is non-custodial (i.e. players have full ownership of their items), user-friendly and easy to build on. Even with no prior knowledge of blockchain, each and every player will be able to store, manage and trade their virtual items with a user-friendly wallet that we provide", the Co-founder and CEO of Horizon Peter Kieltyka explained.
SkyWeaver currently has 12,000 users playtesting and over 90,000 waiting for access.
