The company’s co-founder and CEO İlker Onur Kaya believes blockchain technology will have a major impact in the video gaming world, alongside other industries. Kaya said:“Our partnership with Gelişim Group will be an important step in developing technological solutions for various industries. We want to have a tremendous impact in the gaming world as a Turkish studio. With this investment, we’ll complete one of our most important projects, Reincarnation, and also continue working on other products and services. As young entrepreneurs, we’re out there looking for projects that will leave a mark in the industry.”

İlker Onur Kaya also mentioned that play-to-earn and NFT-based GameFi projects that are built on blockchain technologies are trending lately, and added that Yin Yang Games aims high in this particular area as well.

“After investing in textile, energy, and education sectors, we’re happy to enter the tech industry by financing Yin Yang Games, a unique team that understands us on a different level.”
