Yuga Labs Hires Chief Gaming Officer to Further Web3 Gaming Push

Yuga Labs has hired Spencer Tucker as its first Chief Gaming Officer, the company behind the Bored Ape Yacht Club NFT collection announced Friday. At Yuga, Tucker will supervise the development of the firm’s Web3 gaming projects, starting with Yuga’s “Otherside” metaverse. Earlier this year, Otherside made waves on Ethereum when it saw a massive surge of transaction.

Tucker comes from mobile gaming companies Scopely and GREE, where he worked as President of Games and Senior Vice President of Product, respectively. On Linkedin, Tucker said he was “super stoked” to be joining Yuga, which also owns the CryptoPunks and Meebits NFTs. Yuga still has a small team considering its $450 million seed round, bringing the company to a staggering $4 billion valuation.
