MLB Champions Makers, Lucid Sight Raised $6 Million

The blockchain game developer startup, Lucid Sight, has raised $6 million in funding. The investment was led by Salem Partners.

The Los Angeles-based startup has now raised a total of $11 million in funding since its inception in 2015. The latest funding will aid in expanding Lucid Sight’s flagship game, Crypto Space Commander and MLB Champions, to traditional game platforms such as mobile, PC and console.

The company is also aiming to launch Scarcity Engine, a software development tool that will "bridge the gap between blockchain and traditional gaming platforms."

The rest of the investors involved in the funding round included Digital Currency, the Galaxy EOS VC Fund, Breakaway Growth, Animoca Brands and Frontier Venture Capital. The new unit will join the existing investors including MLS, Rana Capital Partners, Los Angeles Lakers VP Research & Development Joey Buss and mobile game industry leading player Jonathan Zweig.

Lucid Sight CEO, Randy Saaf said,

The Scarcity Engine technology is presently fueling both MLB Champions and CSC. The startup has indicated it is planning to bring CSC to Early Access on Steam in 2019. Lucid Sight will also deploy the funding amount to launch Scarcity Engine 1.0 with third-party game developers.

In the 2018 MLB season, Lucid Sight released a beta version of MLB Champions, in which players can purchase collectibles that upgrade and get rewards similar to real life basketball games. A new version of the game is expected to launch during the 2019 MLB season.
