We are proud to support vorto gaming blockchain games because it has many opportunities – Investor
Tommy Quite, Investment Director at Flow Ventures, said, “Flow Ventures is very excited to lead the investment round into Vorto Network. We see many blockchain games that opportunistically try to capitalise on the P2E craze without live games or by copying existing models. This is why it was refreshing to see a well-established gaming studio with authentic and proven games enter the space. After talking to them, we got even more excited; rarely do we encounter such professional and dedicated teams.”
Blake Gao, Partner at LD Capital, on his part, said that “We’re keen to help Vorto Gaming explore ways of creating a cohesive hub for play-to-earn. Empowering P2E models to create huge incentivization for many players across developing markets. Vorto has an ambitious vision for the future of the industry, and we are looking forward to supporting them and our community in achieving these goals.”
Vorto Gaming CEO Kris Vaivods said that Vorto Network creates a reality for players and studios alike, wanting to shift gears into web 3.0 rapidly.
