Animoca Slashes 2023 Fundraising Target in Half

Animoca Brands Corp. plans to raise $1 billion for its new Web3 and metaverse investment fund in Q1 2023. The company originally planned to raise up to $2 billion for the fund before the collapse of FTX.

Why It Matters: Animoca Brands has stakes in over 380 firms and is focused on developing a Web3 ecosystem.

Need to Know:

  • Animoca Brands co-founder Yat Siu mentioned that a number of Animoca's portfolio firms were affected by the collapse of the FTX exchange, including NFT spaceship game Star Atlas.
  • The market downturn and the collapse of the FTX exchange have made fundraising more difficult.
  • Animoca Brands has received investment from Temasek in September and does not have any further plans for fundraising for itself.
