Horizon Blockchain Games Raises Funds From BITKRAFT and CMT Digital to Drive Web3 Adoption by Making Blockchain Easy, Fun and Powerful for Users and Developers
Horizon Blockchain Games (Horizon), a video game and Ethereum Web3 wallet and platform company, has raised $4.5 Million USD in a pre-Series A round SAFE from strategic gaming and blockchain investors, including BITKRAFT Ventures, CMT Digital, The Xchange Company, Khaled Verjee and Zyshan Kaba. Horizon’s vision is to bring the symbiotic economies and power of Web3 and Ethereum to players, consumers, and developers alike with products tailor-made for everyday Internet users.
“This year will be monumental for Horizon Blockchain Games as we accelerate the adoption of Ethereum and blockchain technologies,” said Peter Kieltyka, CEO of Horizon. “Our Sequence crypto and NFT wallet and our game Skyweaver make blockchain simple, fun and accessible for everyday users. We’re thrilled to launch both products this year, and to enable virtually anyone with an Internet connection to participate in and benefit from this next generation of the Internet: the decentralized web.”

Horizon is helping unleash the power of Ethereum and Ethereum-compatible blockchains by giving end users a game and a consumer-friendly wallet to access Web3, while also providing developers with tools to build the future of a truly decentralized world wide web. Currently part of Ubisoft’s Entrepreneurs Lab Season 6, Horizon will launch its wallet and developer platform, Sequence, and genre-shifting digital trading card game, Skyweaver, in 2021. The game will change the landscape of digital card games by providing players the opportunity to play-to-own NFT cards and giving them the power to sell, trade or buy these cards. Players can transact through the game’s peer-to-peer decentralized marketplace that seamlessly connects to the player’s wallet where all of their digital game items are securely stored.
“We strongly believe that gaming and blockchain technology are a natural fit: as virtual worlds like video games are becoming social economies of their own, gamers also increasingly care about their digital identity, assets, and a fair participation for players and creators,” said Moritz Baier-Lentz, Partner at BITKRAFT Ventures. “The incredibly talented and renowned team at Horizon Blockchain Games has not only built a play-to-earn game that is fun to play, but has also created a truly remarkable piece of technology with their Web3 wallet Sequence. We believe that this technology has the potential to become the standard for gamers and blockchain developers—all while the real benefits of digital ownership will only continue to grow.”
“We first got excited by Skyweaver in 2019 and became even more enthralled when we learned about the vision for Sequence,” said Colleen Sullivan, CEO of CMT Digital. “Horizon’s poised to make Web3 and Ethereum accessible and enjoyable for virtually anyone with an Internet connection, and we love working with them.”
