Digital Entertainment Asset (DEA) Signs MOU with Rakuten Group for Collaborative Web3 Partnership
Rakuten Group is a global tech company that provides more than 70 different services spanning e-commerce, fintech, digital content, a mobile carrier business and other communications services, as well as professional sports. Rakuten was an early entrant to the Web3 space, and has already launched businesses such as the NFT marketplace and sales platform "Rakuten NFT," one of Japan's leading NFT platforms, and its crypto asset trading exchange "Rakuten Wallet," which supports Bitcoin and a range of cryptocurrencies. The partnership will see DEA and Rakuten collaborate on potential synergies in their respective businesses to further enhance the value of their services.
"We have decided to invest in DEA because of the company's proven track record on the world stage in the fast-growing Web3 domain under the leadership of an experienced management team," said Hiroshi Takasawa, President of Rakuten Capital. "I am looking forward to working together with DEA on a number of Web3 business initiatives through this investment. We expect that Rakuten Group's membership base, brand and business experience and expertise in related areas and DEA's experience in GameFi, token economy and metaverse business promotion, will contribute to the future business growth of both companies."
"We are very proud to enter a business agreement with Rakuten Group, a powerful name in the Japanese tech industry, and we look forward to building great things together," said DEA co-founder and co-CEO Naohito Yoshida. "Our companies have a great number of synergies that we can explore to collaboratively create top-notch Web3 content."
Uniting Toward Common Web3 Goals
DEA operates the PlayMining GameFi platform, which features a catalog of Play-to-Earn (P2E) NFT games, including Job Tribes, Cookin' Burger, Menya Dragon Ramen and the recently launched Graffiti Racer. The platform has a robust NFT marketplace featuring hot content from household names among Japanese anime and video game fans, and a metaverse initiative is in development. DEA also has its own token, DEAPcoin ($DEP), which is the first and currently only P2E token officially approved by Japan's Financial Service Agency. By having an NFT market, a token and a GameFi and metaverse platform in one place, PlayMining is able to offer IP monetization opportunities to third-company game studio partners.
