Japanese Gaming and entertainment firm (Akatsuki) has raised a $20 million investment fund. It will be focused on investing in web3 related businesses.

The fund, called Emoote, will invest in startups working on GameFi, non-fungible tokens (NFTs) and the metaverse, according to a press release from Akatsuki. The choice to name the fund Emoote by developers stems from the value of NFTs being based on emotinal values, rather than economic ones.

The fund will invest 50% of its money in Asia and 40% in America. The other 10% will go to other regions. They also said that the fund would focus on working with Japanese entertainment and media companies.

Akatsuki is a business that was first established in 2010 in Tokyo. They co-developed the popular game Dragon Ball Z: Dokkan Battle with Bandai Namco Entertainment.

Of course, Emoote is not alone in their investment in web3 projects. Andreessen Horowitz (venture capitalists) launched Games Fund One, a $600 million fund.
