Japanese manufacturer of computer games Gumi has launched a $30 million investment Fund Gumi Cryptos, which will concentrate on activity in the field of cryptocurrencies and applications of blockchain technology.

The founders of the Fund believe that its creation will contribute to effective partnerships and open the possibility to influence the market through direct access to the blockchain startups in the early stages of their development.

The Foundation has supported the American project Basis (formerly known as Basecoin), which attracted in April $133 million investment to launch a stable currency, and online app store Robot Cache. According to one of the founders of Cryptos Gumi Miko Matsumura (Miko Matsumura), who previously created crypto currency exchange Evercoin and invested in startups Lyft, FileCoin, Brave, Civic, Propy, Polymath and others, the company will invest in equity instruments and tokens directly, and hopes to bring the Japanese market to foreign startups.

Recall that in Japanese FINTECH company Money Forward Inc (MF), operator of one of the most popular applications for managing personal finances, has announced plans to launch this year, the cryptocurrency exchange.
