OPGames, a company that (as they describe) helps "turn games into investable assets through NFTs" has donated a bunch of monies to a few great open source projects.
In their announcement they mentioned $300k has gone to Phaser, Defold, Godot, and Blender. In the announcement OPGames CTO and co-founder Paul Gadi said "We are truly honored to be able to support open-source with the funds raised by our Arcadians community! Open-source game engines are the perfect example of a public good: they are free for anyone to use and safeguards developers from platform lock-in. We hope that this donation will inspire others to support more open-source projects, as they will be foundational in how we break free from the attention economy".
From the Godot Engine announcement, Project Manager Rémi Verschelde mentioned that Godot got quite a nice sum with $100k and mentioned clearly how the monies will "used to further the general development of the engine".
Meanwhile Defold's announcement didn't mention a specific number but Defold Product Owner Björn Ritzl did give a slightly longer PR bit: "We are humbled by the very generous donations from OP Games. We very much support and agree with OP Games vision of a decentralised web where game developers are able to fund and create games using open source technologies and build communities of players free of traditional gatekeepers".
Currently Phaser and Blender don't have their own announcements up.
Nice to see NTFs help fund something good.
