NFTs are the Keys to Unlocking Southeast Asia’s Gaming Economies

Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam: 22 August 2020 RedFOX Labs, the first blockchain venture builder in the region, announced today it has combined forces with the European Video Gaming studio, Whimsy Games of London, to further enhance its game design capabilities as it transitions to becoming a leading blockchain gaming platform.

RedFOX Labs is soon to officially launch its gaming division RFOX Games. They create innovative blockchain games with NFT mechanics and aim to build a market-leading tournament-based gaming platform in Southeast Asia.

RedFOX Labs CEO and Co-founder, Ben Fairbank, commented on the collaboration,

“We are very focused on disruption. As we got closer to the release of our maiden NFT collection, we realised that we needed to establish a longer-term partnership with a gaming studio that understands our vision and can provide us with extra muscle and resources. To reach the massive Southeast Asian audience effectively, we need to focus on speed and innovation when building, that’s why Whimsy is the perfect fit for us. By partnering with Whimsy Games, we build on an existing relationship and can plan for our future growth together, and scale when required. Both parties are excited and committed to expanding operations in the Southeast Asian region and this partnership allows us to achieve our goal.”

RedFOX Labs is in the late development stage of its first NFT game, a Rewards and Cashback platform, and in the design stage for several other companies from their base in Vietnam. Led by an experienced team of Australian C-Level executives, with global experience in disruptive tech, customer experience, and blockchain, RedFOX Labs is focused on using emerging technology to promote Digital Inclusion and introducing more Southeast Asians into the Digital Economy.

A representative of Whimsy Games commented,

“We did not have any doubts participating in developing a blockchain game with NFT mechanics together with RedFOX Labs. They had an extremely innovative idea, and we were super happy to do something revolutionary.” 

RedFOX Labs will continue working with Whimsy Games on the build for the upcoming release of its NFT game.
