The advancement of digital property rights inside an open metaverse will be the primary focus of its gamification efforts.

SAND tokens and REVV tokens are two examples of the company’s wares that are currently available.

It also publishes its own games under its own brand, such as The Sandbox, Crazy Defense Heroes, and Crazy Kings, and it has a large number of subsidiaries, one of which is called Notre Game.

Notably, the company’s foray into the crypto space was not a smooth journey for everyone involved.

Due to the company’s involvement in the digital asset market, it was decided to delist the gaming company from the Australian Stock Exchange (ASX) in March 2020.

The following year, however, in 2022, Animoca Brands was included on the list of “high growth companies in Asia-Pacific,” published by the Financial Times.
