Gaming projects will be funded by a new $150 million fund.
The new fund launches the investment division of Solana Labs, which will amount to $ 150 million. This money will go to game projects, the creation of which takes place on the basis of the Solana blockchain.
The launch of the fund is joint, and therefore Forte is the second participant. Not so long ago, it was able to raise $ 725 million as part of the next stage of financing. The third participant in the launch of the fund is the venture structure Griffin Gaming Partners, whose activities are focused on gaming projects.
Solana Ventures partner Matthew Beck shared his opinion on the new fund. He noted that he was very pleased to partner with Forte and Griffin Gaming Partners. Together they will be able to support the development of a new generation of game designers and developers. After all, there is a lot of ambiguity in the ecosystem so far. And no one knows how blockchain and computer games will intersect further.
Pierre Planche, a partner at Griffin Gaming Partners, supported his colleague, calling interactive media and games a cornerstone in the foundation of the blockchain. He believes that the creators of the blockchain have made a big breakthrough in the application of distributed registry technology in the gaming niche.
As you know, the Solana blockchain is one of those structures that is fast on the market and energy efficient. Not so long ago, the Solana Foundation report showed that it takes 0.51 V (1,836 J) to process a transaction on the Solana network. This is the lowest indicator of energy consumption compared to other blockchains when transactions are confirmed.
