Meta0 Looks to Change Blockchain Gaming 

Jason Fung says he launched Meta0 to make blockchain integrations easier for game developers. Meta0 will provide developers with white-label application programming interfaces (API) and software development kit-based solutions.

"Right now, if you look at any developer when they implement NFTs or blockchain in their games, they have to choose a single blockchain, be it Polygon or Solana or Binance Smart Chain. But imagine a more interoperable option,"

Fung revealed that Meta0 had closed its first investment round but did not disclose the amount raised. However, he adds that Meta0 still looks to raise further capital through token offerings, venture firms, and strategic investors.

  • Lawmakers have asked the F.T.C. chair to investigate TikTok’s data practices, as it may pose a threat to national security.
