Game of Silks (Silks), the first derivative play-to-earn metaverse that mirrors the real world of thoroughbred horse racing, today announced that it has raised $2 million in funding and plans to secure substantial additional funding in the following months through the public sales of their NFTs.

By utilizing innovative Web 3.0 technology, real-world data and a play-to-earn approach, Silks aims to bring thoroughbred racehorse ownership to the masses.

Silks will leverage a blockchain-enabled metaverse and a derivative model to digitally replicate and tokenize the top real-world one-year-old thoroughbred racehorses registered in the US, which will then be sold as NFTs called, ‘Silks horses.’

These unique Silks horse NFTs will then track the bloodlines, training progress and racing performance of their real-world counterparts, and reward owners with valuable tokens as they win races and breed offspring.

Furthermore, users of the Silks platform will have the ability to own, trade and interact with a variety of in-game NFTs that emulate the thoroughbred horse racing industry including Silks avatars, land and stables – in addition to the aforementioned Silks horses.

Pivotal to the project has been the strategic support and financial backing of Tropical Racing, Inc., a multi-faceted thoroughbred horse breeding and racing company led by CEO, Troy Levy, who is also a co-founder of Game of Silks.

Levy said,

“The transaction announced today with Game of Silks represents a unique opportunity for Tropical Racing and our shareholder. We’re optimistic that this partnership has the potential to accelerate Tropical’s growth, while also introducing the thoroughbred horse racing industry to the next generation of sporting enthusiasts.”

Tropical Racing runs a 200-acre horse farm that breeds, races, pinhooks and syndicates thoroughbred racehorses. Game of Silks CEO and co-founder Dan Nissanoff believes that combining these real-world dynamics with Web 3.0 technology will form the mixed reality entertainment that differentiates the venture from other NFT projects.

Nissanoff said,

“I am excited to have a strategic investor like Tropical Racing as an early investor in our round. They bring deep industry expertise and a valuable network critical to the execution of a derivative metaverse project like ours.”

Having the public thoroughbred racing company as its lead strategic investor not only brings legitimacy to the venture. It will also serve as a catalyst to bring more fans and an exhilarating experience to the sport of horse racing.

So far Silks has built the foundation of its metaverse and is set to release its first NFT offering, the Silks genesis avatar collection, on April 27, 2022.

Prior to the sale, users can obtain early access to the Silks genesis avatar mint through the Silks website or gain whitelist access through the Silks Discord.
