Binance Labs, the venture capital arm of the digital exchange, Binance, announced an investment in open-sourced game Nine Chronicles today. The strategic investment will support the company in the expansion of its team.

The latest announcement from Binance Labs came almost three weeks after the company led the $60 million investment round of Multichain. The venture capital and innovation incubator of Binance also invested almost $12 million in WOO Network during the first week of January 2022.

Chase Guo, the Investment Director of Binance Labs, said: “Sharing the same vision of increasing crypto adoption globally, Binance Labs and Nine Chronicles have formed a long-term partnership through the investment. We believe that the team’s deep gaming expertise and the game’s sophisticated graphics will bring them great success in the blockchain gaming space.”

We believe that we can bring decentralized, open-source gaming to the masses through the new partnership with Binance Labs.”
