On September 22, it has been reported that Animoca Brands will launch the games next year, as Animoca is an investor in Dapper Labs.
However, the Star Girl series consists of multiple free-to-play mobile games owned by Animoca and claims a monthly user base of one million players.
Mik Naayem, the Chief Business Officer of Dapper Labs, said:
“We share a mutual vision and approach to creating mainstream adoption of decentralized games in an inclusive manner. With this partnership we are one step closer to making this a reality.”
Likewise, the Flow blockchain is a dark-horse in the race for blockchain scaling solutions to secure market share before the completion of Ethereum’s (ETH) long-awaited ETH 2.0 revamp.
"@animocabrands and @dapperlabs announced today that Animoca Brands will bring its mobile game franchise Star Girl and the upcoming #blockchain game based on MotoGP™ to the @flow_blockchain as part of significant expansion plans by both companies."https://t.co/efRuXZYqpD — DappRadar (@DappRadar) September 23, 2020
The report said that Dapper decided it would pursue the development of a scalable blockchain three years ago after the popularity of its pioneering non-fungible token (NFT) game CryptoKitties crippled the Ethereum network.
Flow has exclusively supported Dapper Labs projects, such as its NBA Top Shot game, along with branded crypto-collectibles in partnership with major entertainment brands including Warner Music and Ubisoft.
Moreover, Dapper Labs has launched two token sales for FLOW, as residents outside of the United States and Canada will be able to participate in two offerings through the CoinList platform.

Dapper Labs will also, reserve an allocation of $1,000 worth of FLOW tokens at 10 cents each to all participants eligible for its ‘Community Sale’, which is open until October 10.
As per the report, investors hoping to purchase more than $1,000 worth of FLOW must participate in a Dutch auction, where bids are accepted in order of price from highest to lowest.
