Framework Ventures — the venture capital firm with deep pockets from a $400 million funding round last year — just proved its love for Illuvium, plonking $10 million into the Australian game studio that is head over heels about NFTs.
Illuvium first unveiled the generous funding round via its Discord chat room, followed by an official stamp of approval on Twitter stating how Frameworks’ “unwavering support and commitment have been nothing short of phenomenal:”

Where the Sparkling Funds are Headed
Although Illuvium is still in beta, the gaming platform has turned many heads in the Web3 gaming arena. With the play-to-earn setup and a mix of open-world gameplay, it currently has three game modes for all to enjoy: Overworld, Arena and Zero. All games are built on the Ethereum blockchain network and its Layer 2 scaling solution, Immutable X, which is used to increase scalability for NFT projects and Web3 games — the cherry on the cake.
Interestingly, this isn’t the first time Framework Ventures has supported Illuvium, leading a funding round of $5 million in 2021. Shortly afterward, Illuvium proved it can pull in the big bucks, launching a LAND sale of $70 million. Framework’s recent injection of $10 million will now rocket Illuvium’s development process speed.
Further boosting its success, the Web3 gaming platform also announced its joining forces with another Immutable X gaming platform, GameStop, for a “game-changing event” and Promo D1sk sale starting on June 12, with 20,000 D1sks containing pre-bonded Illuvitar NFTs used in its collectible card game:
