The company intends to use the funds to onboard additional talent and continue to build the interoperable credential infrastructure alongside ecosystem partners.
Co-Founded by Victor Yu, Carv is building an interoperable credential infrastructure focused on gaming, enabling gamers with an achievement display, semantic friend and game recommendations, and access to credential-gated gaming premiums. At the same time, the company empowers games to recognize gamer activities, capture insights to serve the gamer base, and reach the desired group of gamers.
Carv launched its Alpha version in May 2022 after graduating from UPenn Wharton’s Cypher Blockchain Accelerator. Since then, the company has integrated with more than 20 blockchains and enabled more than 300K registered users to view their all-in-one achievement display. Carv has also worked with more than 100 game studios. These game partners include triple-A and innovative games globally, such as Illuvium, Apeiron, Splinterlands, Genopets, Delysium, Drawshop Kingdom, Big Time, Ultiverse, and more.
