Gumi joins Injective as its first Japanese validator



Japanese mobile gaming company Gumi is the latest to join US-based L1 blockchain Injective as a validator.

Gumi is the first Japanese company to be part of the active validator set, the number of which is currently set at 60 by governance. The company is also a validator for Japanese gaming blockchain Oasys.

Best known internationally for mobile games like Brave Frontier and Final Fantasy Brave Exvius, Gumi is a leading mobile game publishers with a catalogue including both its own games as well as third-party IP titles. In 2018, the company launched Gumi Cryptos, a $30 million fund investing into early stage blockchain projects in any sector, not just games.

More recently, the company founded a new web3 gaming venture in Singapore, gC Games Singapore, which is the subsidiary now becoming an Injective validator.

“Gumi Group plans to continue participating in node operation for various blockchains in order to contribute to the construction of decentralized networks and industrial development in the blockchain field,” commented the company on X.

Mainly designed for finance, Injective also aims to expand players’ opportunities by offering enhanced security in blockchain gaming. It has become one of the largest proof-of-stake (PoS) blockchains worldwide. As one of its validators, Gumi will help to establish Injective’s footprint in Japan, where currently over five million users own crypto.

In terms of gaming, Gumi will offer its expertise as a publisher and developer, but also aims to onboard its users into the Injective network.

Incubated by Binance, Injective is backed by investors including Jump Crypto, Pantera and Mark Cuban.
