His newest venture, Irreverent Labs caught the attention of investors in Silicon Valley. Andreessen Horowitz led a $5 million round of funding for Irreverent Labs. Horowitz firm is active in supporting blockchain and crypto-based startups and has invested at least 50 of them.

Irreverent Labs will announce their game next month but Sood offered some insights into his project. Talking to GeekWire, Sood said that the game takes place in a metaverse that will blend the physical and virtual world.

He also added that the players will “own” the characters in the metaverse with the right to buy and sell. This is where Sood will introduce NFT's. The characters in the metaverse will be powered by AI and will get smarter with time.
