Please introduce your fund

Terabyte Capital is a blockchain-focused venture capitalist based in Seoul, South Korea.

We’re a team of accelerators and investors that have joined together to form a team in January of 2021 with the mutual goal of Accelerating the Mass Adoption of Blockchain.

As experts in business development, marketing, and startup investments, we focus on backing innovators who are building aspiring projects by supplying our resources and insight. Our main focus is investing in viable infrastructures that will make blockchain more accessible to the public.

Why did you invest in PlaceWar?

We believe the core members of PlaceWar, having experience with launching successful businesses and games, are capable of making a great blockchain game with its unique concept. We believe PlaceWar can make blockchain more accessible to the public.

How do you think PlaceWar can revolutionize the Gamefi industry?

Existing blockchain games are a mostly passive game that doesn’t require control or strategic plays. But PlacceWar will be different with the activities such as Construction, Skirmish, and Conquest Mode on top of the Pixel System.

What is your most anticipated feature in PlaceWar?

Conquest Mode — It will require strategic plays for team players, which will bring more joy to the game.

What are your expectations from PlaceWar?

It was just a few months ago when the project was founded, and the team has already made some impressive achievements. We are excited for what the team will soon bring more to the players.
