The strategic investment signifies a milestone for XPLA by positioning the platform towards accelerated growth within the gaming industry Date Layer 1 blockchain platform XPLA has secured an undisclosed amount of funding from Singapore-based investment firm Play Ventures . The strategic investment signifies a milestone for XPLA by positioning the platform towards accelerated growth within the gaming industry and “shows a shared vision for the future of Web3 gaming." “As we embark on this exciting journey with Play Ventures, we are confident that their financial support, strategic guidance, and industry expertise will be instrumental in steering XPLA toward even greater success," XPLA wrote in a post. The blockchain platform went on to say that with Play Ventures' support, its goal is to foster innovation and explore new frontiers within the Web3 gaming realm.
