Kyle Davies and Zhu Su, founders of Three Arrows Capital, said:
“Three Arrows is delighted to support Solice, disrupting the Solana ecosystem with a truly immersive virtual reality (VR) metaverse. Blockchain secures the immutability of our connection and access. VR brought us a new immersion that engages our senses. The metaverse offers a combination of both in what we might call a complete liberation of the human experience.”
Arthur Cheong, founding partner of DeFiance Capital, said:
