Toronto, Canada, April 26Smartlink, one of the fast-rising projects built on the Tezos blockchain seeking to change the global payment ecosystem through its trustless, decentralized escrow service, has raised $500,000 in its first private funding round.

A new wave of blockchain startups is making its entry into the space, championing the cause to promote the utility of smart contracts in the real world. Wanting to get in on the ongoing cryptocurrency revolution, investors are also unwilling to take the back seat, duly identifying suitable projects with futuristic business models. The Smartlink decentralized escrow platform, which was also designed as a marketplace for Web 3.0, has gathered interest from institutional backers and a growing community.

What Smartlink’s investors are bringing to the table

The backing of the Smartlink project by these industry leaders is a testament to the unique business model Smartlink offers, aiming to change global e-commerce and how we buy and sell goods and services in general. Besides the cash injection, these partners will bring their industry expertise to help the Smartlink project attain its predefined objectives.

Besides these highlighted core roles, it is worth noting that these partnerships are long-term. Over time, Smartlink will functionally evolve in ways that bring mutual benefits to its ecosystem partners and community as a whole.
