Animoca Brands and metaverse company Darewise back OPAL Protocol and are poised to collaborate to make this “the largest Web3 ecosystem” built on Bitcoin.

The project will encompass gaming, entertainment, decentralised finance (DeFi), education and culture, according to details the Animoca team shared on Tuesday.

Already, six Animoca Brands portfolio companies have reportedly joined the initiative as genesis members. They include AAA massively multiplayer online (MMO) game Life Beyond, digital collectibles platform Magic Eden, Bitcoin Web3 wallet Xverse and developer platform Horizen Labs.

Any company eager to join the movement can apply to become a member of OPAL and build with $BLIF,” the announcement on X reads.

Members of the special council include Animoca Brands’ Yat Siu, BRC-20 creator Domo and Darewise CEO Ben Charbit. Others are Leah Wald, Herve Larren and David Bailey.
