GameOn (CSE: GET) (OTCQB: GMETF), a next generation fantasy sports platform partnered with the world’s biggest IPs to launch, operate, and monetize web3 games, today announces a strategic financing from industry heavyweights, Lightning Capital and Flow, the blockchain platform started by NBA Top Shot maker Dapper Labs. The funds will be used to accelerate GameOn’s PLAYN3XT platform and acquisition of major league IP partners.

The total amount raised is $1.7m from two instruments:

  2. A non-dilutive grant from the Flow Ecosystem Fund, signed on June 5, 2023. The grant funding is subject to certain to-be-announced major league projects and milestones.

“Earning conviction from web3 powerhouses is a nod to our team, product, and business,’ said GameOn CEO, Matt Bailey. “We continue to surround ourselves with resources, people, and organizations that foster success. We’re aggressively honing in on major league IP acquisition that will return scaled profitability, fueled by best-in-class product and execution.”

“GameOn’s cutting-edge technology and proven ability to scale major brand partnerships is an exceptional investment opportunity,” said Lightning Capital General Partner, Jock Percy. “Matt and team are world class, and we’re excited to help drive and operationally support their major league strategy as a long term partner.”

The Flow Ecosystem Fund is the largest joint commitment made towards any blockchain ecosystem. Flow is the blockchain platform started by Dapper Labs, the company behind NBA Top Shot.

Notable investors in Dapper Labs include Andreessen Horowitz, Coatue, Union Square Ventures, Venrock, BOND, GIC, Google Ventures (GV), Samsung, and the founders of Dreamworks, Reddit, Coinbase, Zynga, and AngelList, among others.

“We’re blown away by GameOn’s next generation fantasy sports platform,” said SVP Flow Ecosystem Partnerships, Mickey Maher. “There is a track record of IPs having huge success on Flow, like NBA Top Shot from Dapper Labs. We can’t wait to share that knowledge, experience, and network, and be a key strategic partner to GameOn’s long term success.”

GameOn is hosting an investor webinar on July 6 to discuss the funding, financial filings, and what’s next for the company. Please email [email protected] to be added to the event invite.

Terms of the Investment
The convertible note forming the Investment is offered on a non-brokered private placement basis. Simple interest will accrue at a rate of ten percent (10%) per annum. Unless earlier converted into common shares (“Shares”), the principal and accrued interest of the Investment will be due and payable by GameOn to the holders of the Investment (the “Holders”) on the date that is twenty-four (24) months from the date of the issuance of the Investment (the “Maturity Date”); prior to the Maturity Date with the acceptance of the Holders (provided GameOn pays the Holder all of the interest that would have been due had the Holders held the Investment until the Maturity Date), or upon demand by the Holders. The Investment plus any accrued but unpaid interest thereon will be convertible into Shares of GameOn at a price of $0.10 per Share. The securities issued will be subject to a 4-month one day hold period from the date of issue of the convertible notes forming the Investment, or the Shares. The completion of the private placement remains subject to the receipt of all necessary approvals, including the approval of the CSE. Proceeds of the offering will be used for general working capital purposes.

Squad Labs announced that its Series A funding round, led by Electric Capital with participation from RockawayX, Coinbase Ventures, L1D, Placeholder, and Mert Mumtaz, will propel the launch of its Fuse smart wallet. The company aims to establish Fuse as a premier solution for securing and compounding personal digital wealth amid the growing onchain economy.

According to the company’s news release on June 12, smart accounts and smart wallets are gaining traction across blockchains as they offer a more intuitive, secure, and programmable user experience. Fuse abstracts seed phrases and provides features like wallet recovery, 2FA capabilities, and enterprise-level security for personal custody, simplifying the choice of storing digital wealth on-chain.

In addition to securing funding, Squad Labs also announced the public testing launch of Fuse on iOS. This move is part of their strategy to expand accessibility and refine functionality ahead of a full market release.

Meanwhile, a recent report from PYMNTS Intelligence explores blockchain’s role in enhancing cross-border payments. It suggests that integrating blockchain can streamline payment processing, enable digital-to-fiat currency conversion, and introduce stablecoins for faster and cost-effective cross-border transactions. Business-friendly decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions further automate and secure transactions via smart contracts, reducing dependence on traditional payment systems and enhancing security and transparency.

The report underscores the significance of educating businesses and end-users about the benefits of blockchain-based cross-border payments. It advocates for partnerships with FinTechs and proactive engagement with financial institutions to drive adoption and improve industry-wide support for blockchain technologies in payments.

Overall, Squad Labs’ funding round and Fuse’s development represent strategic advancements in blockchain technology aimed at enhancing digital wealth management and transforming cross-border payment landscapes.
