Global Brain has invested in Gaudiy inc. (Gaudiy), a company that provides a fan platform service using Web3 technology, through its KDDI Open Innovation Fund III (KOIF III).

Gaudiy provides Gaudiy Fanlink, which directly connects entertainment IP (Intellectual property content) and its fan. Japanese large entertainment companies across various domains – manga, anime, music, game, etc. – have already introduced Gaudiy Fanlink to their well-known IP. For IP fans, it is possible to proactively engage in the platform authorized by IP holders. Gaudiy is building the ecosystem which captures the commitment of IP fans by using blockchain technology for recording/accumulating fan activities across multiple domains.

Global Brain has decided to invest in Gaudiy, thinking highly of its outstanding product and the management team, which accurately captured the current needs of IP holders and fans. Global Brain will proactively support and reinforce Gaudiy’s business development from all the dimensions.
