Gumi ups investment in My Crypto Heroes dev Double Jump.Tokyo

Gumi has acquired ¥179,536,500 worth of shares in the game dev studio Double Jump.Tokyo, building on an earlier investment in the company from late 2018.

Newsbrief: Through its cryptocurrency focused subsidiary Gumi Cryptos, Gumi has acquired ¥179.5 million (~$1.7 million) worth of shares in the game dev studio Double Jump.Tokyo, building on an earlier investment in the company from late 2018.

The move seeks to expand Gumi’s presence in the blockchain game business, all while strengthening its existing relationship with My Crypto Heroes dev Double Jump.Tokyo.

With that transaction in the bag, and following the transfer of previous shares from another Gumi subsidiary set to finalize on July 1, Gumi Cryptos will have ownership of 67.28 percent of the studio’s shares.
