Here are some quotes from our all-star cast of investors!
"Our team has had the pleasure of knowing Aleks, Jiho, and the Axie team since they had just 20 users. It's been incredible to see them grind these past few years through the bear market and emerge on the other side with one of the strongest and loyal communities in crypto. We believe they'll be looked at as pioneers of the NFT and Crypto Gaming sector in the years to come."
Anil, Co-founder, Delphi Digital
"Axie has been building relentlessly since 2018 and we are impressed by their execution so far. Their vision of combining NFT, gaming and DeFi together is extremely exciting. We are thrilled to see Axie continue to be at the forefront of innovation in NFT gaming and DeFi space and are proud to support them."
Arthur0x, Defiance Capital
"With the emergence of digital collectibles and the necessity for scarce assets in today’s economic climate, we believe that NFTs represent some of the biggest opportunities in the digital assets space. Axie Infinity and Axie Infinity Shards (AXS) offer a pure-play way to gain exposure to the potential growth of the NFT ecosystem as well as the burgeoning gaming sector of digital assets."
Katie Talati, Head of Research, Ar.ca
We made our first investment in Sky Mavis back in early 2019, based on our belief that Axie has great potential to open up the next era of Cryptogaming. We believe that the combination of PVP battle contents, Play to Earn, and Land(Virtual world) is a winning combination that will make Axie a household name. We couldn't be more thrilled to see what's coming next in Axie world.
Ethan Kim Kyuntae, Partner, Hashed
"We are very excited to continue to invest in the Axie Infinity Ecosystem. Axie is a combination of an incredibly fun and unique game, a governance token that accrues value and a collection of scarce NFTs that range from Axies to Lands that enable a compelling Nash-equilibrium between different actors. Axie is the first game to unleash the power of crypto-assets to augment gameplay and create significant in-game opportunities for fun and profit."
