Unikrn, a leading gaming and eSports company, has unveiled a new global platform and virtual currency.
Unikrn Arena Global will allow users to earn ‘Unikoins’ by participating in various activities, allowing them to increase their chances of winning prizes.
To support the launch of Unikrn Arena Global, the company is also launching its first companion application, Unikrn Vault, which will be available shortly after launch for Android in the Google Play Store and for iOS in the Apple App Store.
Meanwhile Hollywood actor Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary’s Sound Ventures venture capital firm has been confirmed as the latest investor in Unikrn through a ‘Series A’ funding round.
“I’m thrilled to be launching Unikrn Arena to the world, and releasing the Unikrn Vault App to allow our users to generate Unikoins is something we’re all really excited about,” Unikrn chief executive Rahul Sood said.
“At the same time, bringing Ashton Kutcher and Guy Oseary on was a big deal for me. They are well known for picking winning consumer technology companies and are incredibly connected. We’re looking forward to working with their team to help make Unikrn Arena a big success.”
Kutcher explained his investment by saying that “eSports are mainstreaming, and Unikrn Arena provides fans with an additional level of excitement not found elsewhere”.
