Apart from the financial injection, the startup also receives the technological background from nChain, which has thousands of patents and hundreds of millions in solutions value.

Together Planetary and nChain are accelerating the shift to play2earn economies, which is what Web3 is all about.”Christen-Ager Hanssen, CEO of nChain Group, comments.
- The fresh funds will allow Metaverse Planetary to reach millions of users and thus compete with the largest players on the market.
