The firm also signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with Mind Fund Group and Helix, which was launched by Mind Fund ad Hedera Hashgrapha.
“One of the biggest challenges facing blockchain networks is the current limit in transaction volume and latency,” remarked Yat Siu, Chairperson and Co-Founder of Animoca Brands.
“Hedera Hashgraph's performance tests show throughput of 50,000 transactions per second, and up to ten times that number under certain conditions.
“Partnering with Helix and Mind Fund will significantly help Animoca Brands to scale our blockchain products, allowing us to create a new generation of distributed games and applications that will have powerful consumer appeal.”
