In a statement, Sedania said that the Singapore-based ESPL recently announced a partnership with YGG SEA as part of its vision to amass gamers in the cryptocurrency, non-fungible token (NFT) gaming and Metaverse sphere.
Commenting on ESPL’s prospects and how it aligns with the group’s focus on technology, Sedania founder and managing director Datuk Azrin Mohd Noor said that it was important for the group “to discover the viability of cutting-edge technologies critical to the Metaverse as we believe it enhances our vision of ESPL as a compelling platform that provides a more exciting gaming experience for players”.
