- Firm joins list of fastest growing Unicorn in Australia.
Sydney-based Immutable, which is powering the world of NFTs as the leading carbon-neutral, scalable platform for trading NFTs on Ethereum, today announced it secured $200 million in Series C financing led by Temasek.
Other top blockchain game investors like Animoca Brands and technology company Tencent participated in the Series C funding bringing its valuation to $2.5 billion.
The amount raised will be used to fuel the firm’s plans for global expansion, accelerate the company’s growth by investing in the Immutable X platform, and scale the Immutable Gaming Studio, including its flagship games Gods Unchained (one of the largest blockchain games by players) and Guild of Guardians.
Immutable is one of Australia’s fastest-growing unicorns and plans to hire an additional 200 new employees globally over the next 12 months, predominantly in sales, marketing, engineering, and product.
The NFT firm, in a press release on Monday, also said it would use the funds to scale to meet the increasing demand for its platform and expand into new verticals, support gaming partners, acquire new customers and explore M&A opportunities.
