Crypto gaming infrastructure platform Stardust raises $30 million: Bloomberg

Quick Take

  • The company provides development tools for crypto-powered game makers.
  • Framework Ventures led the $30 million Series A round. 

Stardust, a platform that provides development tools for crypto-powered game makers, raised $30 million in a funding round led by Framework Ventures.

Acrew Capital, Blockchain Capital and Distributed Global also took part in the Series A round, Bloomberg first reported. No valuation was given. 

Stardust’s self-professed goal is to become the de-facto infrastructure layer on which blockchain-based games are built. The platform offers a suite of tools that it says removes the difficult building process associated with blockchain development for crypto gaming applications.

Stardust raised $5 million in a seed round in 2021.

“I think web3 gaming will result both in the creation of new and interesting assets as well as exciting, consumer-friendly apps that will definitely be more appealing in terms of onboarding new, less-native crypto users,” Framework co-founder Vance Spencer told The Block.
