A new venture capital fund for ViaBTC
ViaBTC, one of the largest Bitcoin (BTC) mining pools , has just created a new investment fund entirely dedicated to funding startups operating in the cryptocurrency and blockchain industry.
Called ViaBTC Capital, this investment fund focuses on financing projects related to Web 3.0, decentralized finance (DeFi), non-fungible tokens (NFTs), decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) or layer 2 protocols.
In addition to financial support, ViaBTC also provides the startups it supports with other services, including marketing support, technical advice and access to a network of investors.
Based on its own experience in the development of products such as mining pools, wallets, cryptocurrency exchange platforms or blockchains, ViaBTC Capital will effectively accompany multiple projects.
At the time of writing, ViaBTC Capital is already helping 3 blockchain startups:
- Qredo: a cross-chain protocol for asset managers ;
- Lunarcrush: a protocol designed to track the impact of social media on cryptocurrencies;
- Nabox: a multi-chain wallet for decentralized finance.
To support it in this new initiative, ViaBTC Capital has joined forces with many other investment funds and blockchain startups such as Pantera Capital, IOSG Ventures, Shima Capital, TokenInsight, TokenPocket, Woo, Wanxiang Blockchain Labs or Blofin.
In addition, ViaBTC opens with this new product the doors of its entire ecosystem to the most promising projects. The latter will be able to get direct access to the CoinEx platform, and list their token if they have one. Such a listing will also benefit the platform’s users, who will be able to invest in this token via an Initial Exchange Offering (IEO).
