Web3 technology platform Nefta has announced a $1 million investment from Picus Capital. The company currently works with games studios at different stages of development, and will use the investment to scale the team and onboard more gaming companies in the future.
Nefta was founded this year by tech industry veterans Geeshan Willink, Fernando Pernica and Kai Goldmann, who bring first-hand experience in building their own Web3 games, alongside 40 combined years in gaming, finance and adtech startups. The team has set out to become a leader in the Web3 space, with the ultimate aim of solidifying the potential of Web3 technologies as a key driver in the future of game development and as a way to take gamer engagement, ownership and monetisation to the next level.
Geeshan Willink, CEO and Co-Founder of Nefta, said: “With extensive experience in creating Web2 & Web3 games, we’ve designed Nefta as the perfect toolbox to develop, launch and grow Web3 games. We’re delighted to announce the investment support from Picus Capital to further accelerate developer time-to-market and adoption of Web3 gaming. By removing the jargon and providing industry-leading end-to-end solutions, we aim to assist developers with scaling quickly in the space.”
Daniel Niklas, Investor at Picus Capital, said: “We firmly believe that gaming represents one of the most promising and impactful gateways for users into the Web3 ecosystem. We are proud to back the Nefta team in their mission to provide gaming studios with easy-to-implement and robust infrastructure toolkits, and serve as a key driver for larger Web3 adoption.”
