The Trust Project is a worldwide group of news organizations working to establish transparency standards.

Yuga Labs, the studio behind the Bored Apes Yacht Club NFT collection, announces its first-ever Chief Gaming Officer, Spencer Tucker. The company finalized the employment of the new Executive on Friday, September 16.

Tucker, who has twenty years of experience in the gaming sphere, will supervise the development of Yuga Labs’ gaming projects. 

The new Chief Gaming Officer previously worked as President of Games at mobile-first video game developer and publisher Scopely and as Senior Vice President of Product at mobile game builder Gree International Entertainment. 

“Spencer brings a passion for and deep knowledge of gaming and shares our vision for the Otherside Metaverse. Yuga today is known most prominently for being the home of Bored Ape Yacht Club, CryptoPunks, and Meebits, but Yuga is more than that. Gaming is one of our main focus areas. We are uniquely situated to revolutionize the way we all think about Web3 gaming through core principles such as ownership, utility, community, and storytelling,”

said the CEO of Yuga Labs, Nicole Muniz. 

As Yuga Labs plans to evolve its long-term gaming strategy, Tucker will be in charge of the “Otherside” Metaverse, as well as other upcoming gaming-related products. The company has released a litepaper for the Otherside Metaverse earlier this year that discussed details of the project and its principles, as well as highlighted the opportunities it offers to the community. 

It’s worth noting that Yuga Labs raised $450 million for the development of “Otherside” in March this year. The company has approximately seventy employees at the moment of writing and plans to expand to a hundred by the end of the year.
