Through the Animoca and Dapper Labs partnership, gaming enthusiasts will enjoy the official licensed blockchain based game for MotoGP.

Animoca Brands Corporation Limited yesterday announced a strategic partnership with Dapper Labs Inc., the company developing the new Flow blockchain, to bring its mobile game franchise Star Girl and the upcoming blockchain game based on MotoGP to the Flow blockchain.

Yat Siu, the co-founder and chairman of Animoca Brands, said:

“We are excited and honoured to collaborate with Dapper Labs and the Flow blockchain to address the challenge of mass adoption for blockchain gaming and NFTs, and we look forward to bringing the REVV community and the Flow community closer together as we continue to develop our partnership”.

According to both companies, the integration of services will be a huge boost to the partnership that has existed in years.

Worth noting is the fact that the Star Girl franchise is dubbed as a successful series of mobile fashion role-playing games, which are popular especially with the global female audience. In addition, the franchise accounts for approximately one million monthly active users and 180,000 daily active users, hence making it a major part of the partnership.

On the other hand, Flow blockchain is a next-generation blockchain that is  being developed to deliver optimized gaming and entertainment experiences. Through the new blockchain type, the consumers are able to use credit cards and digital assets, hence easing the process.

According to Animoca, the game will have the fastest riders and the most technologically advanced prototype racing motorcycles in the world.

The blockchain ecosystem will significantly be encroaching the gaming industry both in the technology itself and in digital assets.  Dapper Labs is set to steer forward the blockchain through the gaming industry. Mik Naayem, Chief Business Officer at Dapper Labs, noted:

“Animoca Brands has been an incredible supporter of NFTs and decentralized games since 2017. We share a mutual vision and approach to creating mainstream adoption of decentralized games in an inclusive manner. With this partnership we are one step closer to making this a reality. We are excited to welcome and support the vibrant REVV and Star Girl communities to Flow”.

Dapper Labs has also partnerships with major entertainment global providers including NBA and NBPA, Warner Music Group, Ubisoft, and UFC. Moreover, the company is well funded by Andreessen Horowitz, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, Google Ventures, Samsung, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.
