Blockchain operations are increasingly embracing more traditional financing from big-name venture funds to leverage these strategic stakeholders’ benefits instead of crowdfunding avenues popularized during the last blockchain hype wave.

Funding Roundup: Concordium, StakeWise, and Automata Reveal Private Capital from Leading Funds

In a significant departure from the last crypto startup wave focused on raised public capital in the form of initial coin offerings (ICO), token sales, and exchange launches, today’s advancing blockchain initiatives are increasingly tapping private capital from venture funds. Though the sums awarded aren’t eclipsing the billions raised by projects in previous years, the latest developments are positive for companies, funds, and users at large.

A blockchain VC investment leverages the expertise and due diligence of the fund itself, lending greater credibility to the underlying project. Accordingly, companies turn to these more traditional funding outlets to bolster project reputations and burnish their credentials.

Enterprise Blockchain Enters The Fundraising Drive

As business interest in blockchain continues to accelerate, decentralized blockchain has concluded a €10 million private token sale that is designed to help the blockchain expand its footprint in the enterprise arena.

Concordium, which recently announced a partnership with Geely Group, plans to deploy the funds to help large companies adopt blockchain across multiple areas after rigorous testing of its protocol-level ID concept. The blockchain, which can support smart contracts, self-sovereign IDs, and more, plans to launch its mainnet during the second quarter.

Smaller Sums Don’t Mean Less Significant Projects

Even when amounts are more limited relative to past crypto fundraising drives, the operations receiving private funding are by no means insignificant and by nature reflect the shifting infrastructure of the whole ecosystem.

Ethereum staking protocol Stakewise is among the organizations that have recently closed a private funding round. The ETH2 staking protocol is on the cusp of its mainnet launch after initiating an Early Adopters Campaign and landing a modest private funding round worth just $2 million. The latest financing following its seed capital from Collider Labs was led by Greenfield One alongside Collider Ventures, Gumi Cryptos, Lionschain Capital, and other private investors.

Another project ramping up is Automata Network, a leading privacy-oriented middleware protocol. A joint $1 million raise arrived from a consortium that includes Alameda Research, Divergence Capital, Genesis Block Ventures, IOSG Ventures, and KR1.

The company, which focuses on adding complementary Web3 privacy functionalities and infrastructure to existing projects, intends to use these funds to further product research and development while also enlarging Automata Network’s footprint and community engagement.
