Funfair Ventures, is part of the Funfair Technologies Group. FunFair Technologies was established in 2017 and is made up of experts with decades of experience within the blockchain and gaming industry, including technology entrepreneur and investor Jez San OBE.
Jez San OBE is one of the biggest names in UK gaming; he founded one of the earliest British games studios, Argonaut, in 1982. Argonaut produced multiple gaming titles including StarFox, Croc, Harry Potter, and the Super FX chip, the first ever consumer 3D GPU. Pioneering the field of real-time 3D computer graphics led to Jez being awarded an OBE, for services to the computer games industry.
In the early 2010’s Jez became an investor in the blockchain and cryptocurrency sector and has been an active member of the Ethereum community from it’s beginnings. His investments to date have included DeepMind (acquired by Google), Ninja Theory (acquired by Microsoft) and Kraken to name a few.
FunFair Technologies was created to re-invent online gaming. It delivered pioneering technology, including the first commercial usage of layer 1 scaling tech in its decentralised gaming platform.
FunFair exited that business in 2021 and has more recently been focused on R&D in layer 2 tech and has built projects on a number of platforms, including Optimism, Solana, xDAI, Dfinity and Polygon.
FunFair Technologies continues to build technology and games on the blockchain, and has vast experience to offer to our partners in both technology and commercial activities through FunFair Ventures.
