“We are excited that GameOn selected Hedera as their next DLT integration and will be imminently launching Karateka in collaboration with Karate Combat,” said Alex Russman, VP, Metaverse Fund at The HBAR Foundation. “This is a testament to the strategic focus around web3 consumer engagement and the brands and their communities being attracted to the Hedera Network. Hedera provides best-in-class core DLT functions and GameOn’s services contribute to Hedera’s ‘ecosystem-as-a-service’ that brands can partner with to deliver engaging utility around their new DLT assets.”
