The company has extended $15.5 million across 2 rounds, including a $12 million round in July. With this Series A round, TCG Crypto is leading the round, with Cassius, Greenfield One, Sparkle Ventures, Kevin Durant and Rich Kleiman’s 35V, Blockwall, Spice Capital, and Kraken Ventures, also partaking.

Chess players can already access Immortal Games’ platform on beta.immortal.game. After creating your account, you can pick 4 chess pieces from your inventory and begin playing with someone else.

These chess pieces have been developed by Immortal Game and describe traditional chess pieces, such as pawns, bishops, knights, etc. If you win and manage to achieve some side quests like winning with at least 1 of my knights remaining, you get prizes.

Though there’s also a metagame. Special pieces are also NFTs with diverse rarity levels. You can deal with those on Immortal Game’s marketplace for ETH. The company also has utility tokens (CMT) that you can get relying on your leaderboard ranking, and governance tokens (IGE).

From that foundation, Immortal Game has ambitious objectives with league tournaments and new game modes. The company uses Immutable X as its layer-2 solution on top of the Ethereum blockchain.

Immortal Game co-founder and CEO Thomas Zaepffel mentioned in a statement that an inflection point in the adoption of blockchain technology for customer gaming has been reached. Chess is a centuries-old game that can benefit from this technology, preserving its heritage while luring a new group of players. The CEO adds that they are excited about the support of 50 Grand Masters as they continue to broaden the reach of this incredible game.

There are presently 20 persons working on Immortal Game. The company unleashes 30 new pieces per day. Since June 2022, the company has developed 200 ETH in transaction volume on its marketplace. There are 50,000 enlisted players with 5,000 active partakers per week.

That’s not a lot of people, which signifies that there is a lot of room for development. Millions of individuals play chess on mobile apps and online sites. If Immortal Game governs to convince a fraction of those players to try out its web 3 chess platform, it could transit into a lucrative business.
