The team has a strong technical background and comes from senior positions at major technology companies and fintech startups across the globe.
The new funding announced today will be used to strengthen Kyoko’s position as a first mover within the market. Kyoko will aggressively pursue strategic partnerships with DAOs, guilds and games, while also growing its development and marketing teams to quickly scale its industry reach.
