Another Web3 company got a private equity boost.
Metasky plans to launch a Web3 Wallet that allows users to buy and hold Crypto Assets (NFTs and crypto tokens). Metasky’s Wallet integrates with websites and applications and does Web3 app conversions.
“Metasky itself is organized as a decentralized community," Ankit Arora, co-founder of Metasky, said in a press release. "It is the most efficient way of aligning a group of people towards a shared goal. We want to walk the talk that decentralization is important, but it is a means to an end. Concepts like NFTs only make sense if they are accompanied with a strong set of utilities, a passionate community and real governance rights. We are building Web3 tools to serve this purpose.”
Ankit Arora and Prakhar Sharma founded Metasky last year. The company recently launched “Tanukibles,” which the company calls "a play-to-earn game which has started its journey as an NFT collection." Tanukis are animals native to Japan.
