Ripple's Xpring today announced it is partnering with blockchain gaming platform startup Forte by providing $100 million for investment in blockchain gaming developers.
The young startup was only first announced in February and is led by Kevin Chou, formerly in charge of mobile gaming and esports at Kabam. Forte's leadership roster is strong, featuring former GarageGames and Unity GM Brett Seyler, Kabam employees Kent Wakeford and Weiwei Geng, and tech VC Mahesh Vellanki.
