Blockus Raises $4M Pre-Seed Funding

Blockus, a San Francisco, CA-based Web3 gaming ecosystem, raised $4M in Pre-Seed funding.

The round was led by Maple VC and included Altos Ventures as well as angel investors such as Zhuoxun Yin from Magic Eden, Michael Ma from CreatorDAO, and Bryan Pelligrino from LayerZero.

The company intends to use the funds to accelerate its growth, expand its team, strengthen sales operations, and invest in product development.

Led by CEO Jess Zhang, Blockus is a complete Web3 gaming economy ecosystem. It works to create a place players have the ownership of their in-game assets and where gaming experiences are more immersive, engaging, and rewarding.

The company has already gained traction in the market, with over 30 partners already signed, including Ambrus Studio, the team behind E4C: Final Salvation.

This raise followed Blockus’s participation in the a16z Crypto Startup Accelerator.
