Brink confirmed that the firm will spend $2 billion on gaming, $1 billion on music, $1 billion on movies, and the remaining $1 billion on the Gala theme park NFTs. Asides from the $2 billion budgeted for gaming, the firm also launched a $100 million gaming fund with C2 ventures. The partners will invest the fund in new blockchain games.
Despite confirming the figures, Brink declined any further comments on how the expansion will happen.
