“Our vision for the future is to build a creator economy within the ZED RUN metaverse where players can work in professions such as stable owner, race track owner, breeder, accessory designer and more,” says Chris Laurent, CEO at Virtually Human Studio. “We are also working to partner closely with brands to produce immersive sponsorship experiences, such as our recent collaborations with The Preakness, Stella Artois and Atari.”
Virtually Human Studio (VHS) has raised a $20M USD Series A round, to rapidly accelerate its leading platform development in the NFT space. The round was led by TCG with participation from Andreessen Horowitz and Red Beard Ventures.
The unique utility of ZED RUN and its ability to redefine gaming and the fan relationship, is what attracted investors like TCG. Known for their focus on engaging with passionate fan bases and businesses around product, TCG believes in the potential for blockchain and the digital ownership economy to have a huge impact on the future of fan experiences. This makes investing in VHS a natural fit.
In ZED RUN, you can participate in breeding your racehorse(s) and produce a new offspring. To do this, a few things are required:
you are a stable owner
you own at least one male (colt or stallion) or one female (filly or mare) racehorse
Similar to ZED RUN’s other game elements such as racing, breeding requires skill and strategy to maximise your:
racehorse as a legacy and champion
own legacy as a championship stable owner (renowned for breeding champion racehorses)
potential racehorse and stable profitability.
