Arcade is excited to announce its partnership with Crypto.com Capital as its lead backer. Arcade chose to align with Crypto.com because, well simply put, they are on a mission to accelerate the world’s transition to cryptocurrency. This, combined with Arcade’s dedication to lowering the barrier of entry to play-to-earn games and rewards, makes this a strong fit for Arcade.

“Arcade is bringing an entirely new perspective to play-to-earn gaming by allowing anyone to access games without even needing to play or own assets directly. We’re proud to back this disruptive project by leading Arcade’s funding round,” — Bobby Bao, MD of Crypto.com Capital.

Crypto.com Capital Founded in March 2021, is the venture arm of Crypto.com, and invests in Seed and Series A crypto startups.

Crypto.com Capital seeks to form long-term strategic partnerships with founders, and to grow alongside them in their business.

Arcade’s CEO, Josh Poole, was quoted as saying “Having support from Crypto.com Capital as our lead backer is a big deal for the future of GameFi. As one of the world’s leading exchanges and drivers for crypto adoption, they educate newcomers into the crypto industry every day. Arcade has taken it upon ourselves to do the same with educating and welcoming newcomers into the GameFi space, and as such this makes for perfect synergy between us. Together, we’ll work to lower the barrier of entry for play-to-earn and simplify the GameFi experience for all.”
