Accelerator plans to expand its expansion in China, as well as enter the markets of Japan, Korea, Singapore and India. The company currently has offices in seven countries, including Brazil.
Earlier, Animoca Brands and the Binance Smart Chain team announced the launch of a blockchain incubator focused on GameFi startups.
