Animoca Brands Looks to Crypto-Friendly Markets for Potential 2025 Listing

Animoca Brands, a crypto gaming and metaverse conglomerate valued at $6 billion in 2022, is considering a public listing in Hong Kong or the Middle East as early as next year, co-founder and executive chair Yat Siu said.

That would mark a return to public markets for the company, more than four years after it delisted from the Australian Securities Exchange amid questions about its accounting. Hong Kong and the Middle East have emerged as crypto-friendly hubs by developing regulations tailored to crypto companies, part of a broader push to attract tech firms and build out capital markets in those areas.
