AniChess, a project collaboratively developed by Animoca Brands and Chess.com, has successfully raised $1.8 million to develop its online chess game. The project is supported by legendary chess player Magnus Carlsen and sets new standards in blockchain gaming.

Leading investment firms such as Sfermion, Amber Group, Fenbushi Capital, Aspen Digital, and SNZ Capital participated in the funding round. The funds raised will be used for further game development, expanding marketing efforts, and increasing staff size.

Yat Siu, co-founder of Animoca Brands, stated, "Chess is a classic game that has stood the test of time. One of the advantages of such a game is the complexity and passion of its community, and we are excited to introduce AniChess, our new and refreshed vision of the game of kings."

AniChess offers a unique gameplay experience with the use of spells and new strategies, altering the traditional rules of chess. According to Annabell Huang from Amber Group, AniChess not only updates a beloved classic but also fosters the development of an open gaming experience.

Since its launch, AniChess has attracted over one million registered users, with 150,000 active daily players who have solved more than 50 million chess puzzles, confirming the growing popularity of the game.
