Otta's take

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

Forte allows game publishers to easily integrate blockchain technologies into their games and content apps. This enables features like seamless token wallets, NFT minting, and tailored services for blockchain token economies. This shift allows players to genuinely own in-game goods, transforming purchases into meaningful assets. Globally, users can freely trade goods and services, fostering creative and economic opportunities.

Anticipated to reach $46B by 2025, the gaming market's potential is vast. Positioned strategically with existing partnerships, Forte is hailed as an industry Unicorn. Beyond capitalizing on this growth, Forte aims to facilitate economic expansion and is developing in-game asset management for open market trading.

Forte's co-founder, Kevin Chou, previously co-founded Kabam, which was acquired for nearly $1B. Under Chou's leadership, Forte aims to diversify revenue streams for developers while mitigating upfront investment risks. With $725M raised in 2021, Forte is set to reshape the industry through sophisticated in-game micropayment ecosystems.
