PlaceWar has announced today that it has completed its private round of fundraising in an oversubscribed funding round of $1.8 Million from industry-leading VCs. PlaceWar is a decentralized strategic play-to-earn game universe deployed on a multi-chain with highly engaging artillery gameplay. It allows players to create and define the outlook of the in-game world through building, battles, and alliances.
This oversubscribed funding round solidifies the testimony that there is high demand in P2E crypto games as we see that the rise of crypto games has been seen all around the world, and many have testified to its viability as an alternative source of income. Play-to-earn provides opportunities for both game developers and gamers as both can benefit from a symbiotic relationship where companies create a platform for players to build, trade on, and improve the games, while the gamers earn from their contributions and participation.
PlaceWar, which was founded in early 2021 has since achieved a notable milestone with a sizeable community of over 25,000. In closing the private sale round, investors have pumped in over $1.8 million. The notable venture capitals that participated in this round are AC Capital, AU21, Woodson Game, Exnetwork Capital, Icetea Labs, IoTex, Kyros Ventures, LD Capital, Lucid Blue Ventures, Megala Ventures, Metrix Capital, ReBlock, RoseOn, X21, and many more top blockchain investors.
As part of celebrating the seed and private closing, Block Tides and PlaceWar’s Blockchain, Crypto & Defi 2021 event for a cause was successfully held at Okada Manila, Grand Ballroom, the Philippines with prominent Key Opinion Leaders in the Blockchain landscape in the Philippines, sponsored by successful Blockchain & Crypto companies, and was covered by huge media outlets such as Manila Times, Manila Bulletin, and a lot more.
“We are very grateful, and we would like to thank all our VC and Investor partners for taking part in our private funding round. The oversubscribed closing of this private round gave us a boost of confidence to push the project further and gives us the motivation to deliver exceptional results to our investors and community” Said Myrtle Ramos, Founder of PlaceWar.
