South Korean blockchain investment firm Hashed – a major backer of the Web3 industry that raised over $320 million last year – has made a groundbreaking investment in Apeiron, one of the most important blockchain games on the market today.
Developed by Foonie Magus, Apeiron is a non-fungible token (P2E) game that has now raised over $17 million in one round. The company received $3 million in pre-incorporation investments, $10 million in seed investments and $4.5 million in NFT sales, totaling more than $17.5 million.
Hashed is a team of blockchain experts based in both Seoul and Silicon Valley. The company has rapidly grown into one of the largest blockchain investment firms in Asia, and currently operates a $200 million fund to support high-potential projects. The company sees the Web3 movement as an opportunity “to usher in a future where technology empowers people, not the other way around.” In 2016, Hashed invested in Axie Infinity and The Sandbox, which became NFT’s most successful games.
Join Hashed’s investment in Apeiron by major venture capital firms such as DeFiance Capital, Morningstar Ventures, Spartan Group and DeFi Capital. They will work alongside gaming associations GuildFi, Yield Guild Games Southeast Asia, Avocado DAO, Ancient8 and Snack Club. All were chosen for their strategic values and long-term vision for the Web3 community and beyond.
Apeiron is the world’s first divine themed NFT game. Players will take on the role of Godling – a newborn deity – and use their divine powers to help or defeat the Doods, creatures that inhabit the Apeiron Godiverse. Players will also be able to experience massive item avatars in battle via a real-time card-based combat system.
Developed as a P2E game, Apeiron features an innovative system based on three symbols. Players will be able to purchase NFTs, including planets, stars, and powerful effects, as well as earn tokens simply by playing; These tokens can then be exchanged on the market for real cryptocurrencies.
Frank Cheng, CEO of Foonie Magus and founder of Apeiron said:
“We spent six years working on this project: over 28 developers who put over five years of their lives – blood, sweat and tears – into creating this entertaining experience. But now their hard work will finally be recognized, and the dream is to become a reality.
We are pleased to have found partners who share our crazy vision: it promises an incredible journey for the entire gaming industry – one that will be an unforgettable experience for everyone, to share and own together.”
With the conclusion of the founding round, Apeiron begins private and community investment rounds; An event to generate game tokens will follow, scheduled for the end of May. Foonie Magus plans to raise an additional $10.7 million from these three rounds in preparation for its world debut in the fourth quarter of this year. Apeiron’s Planet NFTs are currently available for purchase on OpenSea, as low as 0.15 Ether (ETH).
Apeiron is the world’s first divine themed NFT game. It offers an action-adventure card-based combat system, along with simulated gameplay inspired by classic titles like Populous and Black & White. Players can build their planets from an overhead perspective, then descend to Earth as an avatar and solve the mysteries of this universe. The goal is to make your planet grow until evolution stagnates, thus restoring the planetary cycle through the Armageddon event: this guarantees compelling progression and exciting late-game gameplay, as well as guild vs. environment and guild vs. -Association.
Apeiron offers an innovative system based on three codes. In other words, users will interact with the ecosystem by using three tokens: a governance token, a P2E token, and a team token to earn.
