Gaming-optimised blockchain Oasys is launching a new ecosystem fund to drive mass adoption of blockchain gaming.
Branded as the Oasys Ecosystem Fund, the new product will prioritise early-stage products that focus on building out the ecosystem. Such projects include gaming decentralised applications, infrastructure, liquidity venues, and studios.
The fund will also invest in a variety of digital assets such as equity, debt and token instruments. It will provide financial support and drive the operation and growth of emerging projects.
Oasys also has a grant programme that offers OAS tokens to projects that meet certain criteria. These tokens are typically used for marketing purposes.
Start-ups receiving funding from the Oasys Ecosystem Fund will also have access to the knowledge network and expertise of the Oasys team. This initiative is aimed to accelerate time to market and reduce costs.
Those funded will additionally have access to Oasys's partner network including Galaxy Interactive, which partcipated in Oasys's strategic funding round last month. South Korean gaming giant Nexon, the company behind the wildly popular gaming franchise MapleStory also parcipated in last month's funding.
Oasys will explore developing a second fund following the launch of the Ecosystem Fund.
Oasys Director Daiki Moriyama said the fund will "offer the best emerging projects the opportunity to continue building and scaling."
