OST Expands Partnership With Animoca Brands

We’re pleased to announce today that OST is expanding its partnership with Animoca Brands to develop blockchain games.

Publicly traded Animoca Brands (ASX: AB1) leverages gamification, blockchain, and artificial intelligence technologies to develop and publish a broad portfolio of mobile products including games such as The Sandbox, Crazy Kings, and Crazy Defense Heroes as well as products based on popular intellectual properties such as Garfield, Thomas & Friends™, Ever After High and Doraemon.

Animoca Brands and OST previously formed a partnership to develop a mobile game on OST technology.

Under the terms of the expanded partnership, OST and Animoca will collaborate to develop games specifically on OST technology. The partnership will focus on new product creation and innovation, with the aim to promote blockchain usage and adoption amongst mainstream consumers. In addition, Animoca and OST will conduct a share / token swap to align incentives and mutual interests.

Animoca Brands will exchange US$200,000 (approximately A$280,000) of the Company’s shares in return for an equivalent amount in OST Tokens. For this transaction, the price of both Animoca Brands and OST Tokens exchanged will be priced at a 21-day VWAP as of 4 October 2018. Swapped shares and tokens will be subject to a 24-month escrow period.

Dr. Chris Dark, co-founder and Chief Commercial Officer of OST, who led the partnership commented:

“We are excited to deepen further our partnership with Animoca Brands, and to begin working together on a mobile game leveraging OST’s technology and Animoca Brands’ deep catalogue of game IP right away.”
