pplpleasr’s Shibuya Streaming Service has raised $6.9M with a recent round of seed funding. The Web3 content platform has already produced 7 minutes of high-quality animated film through its series “White Rabbit,” and raised over $1.5M from NFT sales. Now, Shibuya is looking to increase its pool of creators and devs to bring fans access to a wider range of content.

pplpleasr’s Shibuya Raises $6.9M?

Shibuya launched in March of 2022. However, it has seen major traction in the few months that it has been around. This seed funding is no different, as Shibuya picked up celebrity investors such as Kevin Durant and Paris Hilton.

Moreover, it sounds like Shibuya is aiming to be a better version of Netflix. With all of the tools of Web3 at its disposal, the new streaming platform features built-in decentralization and utilizes blockchain to distribute content. Also, the platform aims to empower creators to monetize and give fans a deeper connection to the stories they love.
