What else did Chibisov say? According to him, the idea of the studio is to attract to Soyuzmultfilm not only children but also young people who often spend time playing computer games. Chibisov noted that all characters should be “positive and carry a cultural code.” He added:

“Young people are now very interested in gaming, so in cooperation with Polygon, we are planning to create game spaces on the basis of this platform (I am already getting a bit ahead of myself) to make Soyuzmultfilm characters possess certain characteristics that can be upgraded by using some game resources inside this platform.”

At the EEF, an agreement between Soyuzmultfilm, Polygon, and the entertainment company OD Business Technologies Group (ODBT) for the development and support of the studio's NFT projects was signed. The Polygon/Cere joint venture will invest about $4 million in them. The release of the first non-fungible token is scheduled for late 2022.
