OLIVEX TO RAISE AUD$8M UNDER STRATEGIC SHARE PLACEMENT WITH BACKING FROM ANIMOCA BRANDS
OLIVEX Share Placement from Strategic Partners
Net proceeds from the Share Placement are intended to be put towards funding the development of the Company's first fitness metaverse game, Dustland Runner and also to progress other fitness metaverse initiatives.
Keith Rumjahn, founder and CEO of OliveX, commented:
"I'm extremely honored that this recent capital raise has received such strong support from both existing and new strategic investors. The work Yat and the Animoca team have been doing in the blockchain gaming space has been revolutionary and we are extremely proud to be working with one of the true pioneers in the space in order to build a truly open metaverse.
The support received from both One Football and Bombora Investment Management cannot be understated. We are extremely privileged to be working with and have the support of such high quality investors"
Yat Siu, Group Executive Chairman and Managing Director of Animoca Brands, and Non-Executive Director of OliveX, commented:
"At both OliveX and Animoca we share a clear vision of an open metaverse where true digital ownership resides with the users and digital assets are completely interoperable. Collaboration between partners within the metaverse is an integral part to achieving this vision and Animoca is pleased to be supporting Keith and the team as they look to bring the fitness metaverse to life.
OliveX's fitness metaverse is the first of its kind and the early adoption of fitness based blockchain gaming is a unique opportunity to not only bring digital property rights to users, but also to improve their lifestyle and wellbeing while allowing them to earn rewards from exercising.
The success of OliveX and the DOSE token to date is a true testament to the hard work being done by the OliveX team and we look forward to continuing to build the metaverse with them in order to change the way we all live, work and play."
