Background of Investment / Future Development
DMM has decided to invest in the Oasys Blockchain Project because we agree with the following goals, strategies and philosophies held by the Oasys Blockchain Project:
- Solving issues related to GameFi (Game × Finance) development/operation, such as transaction speed, user fees, and security.
- Having a project team that is well versed in the unique circumstances and issues of Japanese games and IPs (Intellectual Properties) in the Web3 domain.
- Contributing to the global expansion of Japanese IP and Web3 projects.
We will continue to discuss our vision to use this as a base chain for the Web3 project that DMM is working on.

About "Oasys," a game-specific blockchain project
Oasys is a blockchain project specializing in games. Its proprietary architecture allows players to play games fast, gas-free, and stress free. By eliminating the hurdles of transaction fees and transaction execution wait times, it will be easier to bring content to IP fans who have not been exposed to NFT or blockchain games before. In addition, from a game development standpoint, it will be easier to deal with multi-chain support related to in-game payments and NFT items using blockchain, as well as to link with other games.
