Animoca Brands Acquires Australian Game Developer Grease Monkey

Animoca Brands, the noted investor in non-fungible token (NFT) and metaverse projects, has acquired Melbourne-based motorsport games developer Grease Monkey.

  • Grease Monkey Games will continue to operate under its present management but will align its efforts relating to blockchain integration, NFTs and play-to-earn capabilities with those of Animoca.
  • Financial terms for the acquisition have not been disclosed. Animoca had not responded to CoinDesk’s request for this information at press time.
  • Among its numerous metaverse-related ventures, Animoca Brands is the developer of play-to-earn motorsport game F1 Delta Time, which uses Animoca’s REVV token as its native currency.
  • REVV will be integrated into Grease Monkey’s games as a part of this acquisition, according to an emailed announcement by Animoca Thursday.
  • Animoca’s investment portfolio contains play-to-earn game Axie Infinity; Dapper Labs, the company behind NBA Top Shot; and OpenSea, the largest NFT trading platform. It is valued at around $5.5 billion following its latest funding round of almost $360 million last month.
