Shark metaverse binance-backed gaming platform StarSharks, announced on Friday the completion of private funding round, raising $4.6 million from dozens of investors. The company said the funds will go towards building new games and nurturing the community.

The private round follows Binance Labs, the venture capital arm and incubator of Binance’s initial strategic investment in StarSharks. The StarSharks platform is built on the Binance Smart Chain.
Commenting on the successful funding round, StarSharks CEO Franky said “StarSharks is dedicated to developing a state-of-art blockchain game platform, with the goal of sharing and maximizing the value of creativity through co-creation. We are grateful to be supported by over 30 prestigious institutional investors and communities who believe in StarSharks’ vision, and we look forward to building the game platform of the next generation together.”
The platform was founded by former star performers from Timi Studio, Google, and Binance, and is committed to giving the community the power, allowing them to create, share and build together.
StarSharks plans to bring a different approach to the current GameFi landscape, allowing players, developers, and investors can own, mate, and trade the shark NFTs within the ecosystem, rather than isolating assets in one game. As a result, the community will be able to move NFTs from one game to another within the Shark metaverse.
The platform has also added a leasing feature, allowing users that cannot afford NFTs to rent from other players. The “rent to play” feature fully activates the liquidity and utilization of NFT assets, thereby bridging “the gap between NFT holders who don’t have time to play and active players who don’t have enough initial capital to purchase entry NFTs.”
