🎸 Rockstar co-founder joins Portal Advisory Board

In breaking news, we learn that Jamie King (the co-founder behind Grand Theft Auto) joins forces with Portal as an advisor.

Portal seems to be all over social media these days.

They aim to onboard millions of ‘traditional’ players to crypto gaming through a shared ecosystem and a no-mess user experience.

Having someone like Jamie King on the team will add further credibility to Portal’s vision, and that of the industry.

Portal also recently released their whitepaper which you can read here.

☁️ Endless Cloud secures $2.5M in funding

The developers behind Treeverse and Capsule Heroes (two jaw-dropping games), raised an additional $2.5 million in funds to accelerate their growth in building out the two franchises.

Some pretty big names were behind this round, like Animoca Brands and Sky Mavis.

Earlier this year, Treeverse saw a combined $100 million in volume on their primary and secondary sales of their NFTs.

TOGETHER WITH GOON WARS
🎴 Battle your way to victory in this vibrant deck builder!

We love deck battler games, but most of them focus too much on game mechanics and not enough on looks.

In Goon Wars, the focus is placed on both!

Here, the game’s visuals are not an afterthought, but a focal point that keeps the player engaged throughout the entire battle.

As you collect, trade and battle over 300 unique cards with powerful elements and abilities, Goon Wars will leave you wanting more!

NFT Gaming Marketplace Aqua shuts down. Nobody said building in crypto would be easy.

Finland announces their vision for a 2035 Metaverse. Finland joins China, Japan, UK and the UAE as the first EU country to formulate a comprehensive national Metaverse strategy.
