As part of the strategic partnership, Venom and Everscale will work together to bring blockchain adoption closer to real business use cases.

Abu Dhabi, Jan. 31, 2023 — Venom Ventures Fund, a Web3 and blockchain innovation fund managed by Abu Dhabi-based investment fund manager Iceberg Capital, has announced a strategic partnership with Everscale, a premier blockchain that aims to solve the scalability issues bogging down the Web3 industry.

Venom Ventures Fund has committed a $5 million investment in Everscale to help it further expand its development teams and boost the number of projects. The investment will be in stages, based on progress and cooperation indicators.

Everscale has been diligently working on expanding its reach and integrating its technology solutions in Asian countries over the past two years while building a strong community. Its dynamic sharding technology enables it to efficiently adapt to varying workloads, thus making it an easy and practical option for creating large-scale Web3 and other types of applications.

Iceberg Capital Limited launched the Venom Ventures Fund in partnership with Venom Foundation, the first officially licensed and regulated layer-1 blockchain operating within the Abu Dhabi Global Market (ADGM).

Venom Ventures Fund chairman and ex-chief investment officer of BlackRock, Peter Knez, said:

“For us, this is a strategic investment aimed at the technological development of projects and teams around technologies that we focus on and actively develop. In particular, we are talking about the Venom blockchain project and its ecosystem, which is planned to be launched soon and for which Everscale is a potential layer 2 solution.”

Venom and Everscale teams will be working together on the further development of the core and the ecosystem, bringing blockchain adoption closer to real business use cases. Current initiatives such as digital asset tokenization platforms, a full framework for central bank digital currencies, stablecoins and payment solutions with crypto to fiat gateways are already making good headway.

Commenting on the investment, Everscale Foundation board member, Moon Young Lee, said:

“This is a milestone for both the Everscale and Venom networks. The technological capabilities of Everscale are immense, but they have been underappreciated by a wider audience. Now, Everscale will be able to operate as an experimental network where updates and complex technical solutions can be introduced before they are brought to Venom. This investment will allow Everscale to gain the recognition that it deserves.”

Designed as a network of blockchains, Venom has no limit to the number of other auxiliary networks at the layer 2 level and no limit to the economy type or operation at layer 2. This particular architecture means mass adoption is now achievable on the Venom blockchain.

About Everscale

Powered by an infinite sharding mechanism, the Everscale network adapts to any workload it is tasked with without the size of the load affecting transaction times or processing fees. This makes it the ideal blockchain for hosting high-scale Web3 and other load-intensive projects. Over the past two years, Everscale has emerged as one of the leading blockchains in Asia, with a thriving community and robust ecosystem of DeFi platforms.
