Strategic partnership established with Pantera, IOSG and Shima Capital — ViaBTC Capital makes a star blockchain investor.
Joining forces to explore the promising future
In August 2021, ViaBTC Capital formed a strategic partnership with Pantera, IOSG, Shima Capital and other institutions to fuel blockchain innovation.
With the vision of “making the world a better place through blockchain,” the strategic alliance focuses on blockchain infrastructure to accelerate the development of the cryptocurrency field. By leveraging strengths, the alliance scouts innovative budding projects with great potential and helps aspiring teams to succeed. Together with these developers, the alliance can explore a new path that satisfies the growing demand of users, enhances technical strength, and facilitates commercialization.
ViaBTC Capital has already worked with several investment institutions to support many potential projects in very early stages. These projects include Qredo (institutional-grade infrastructure), LunarCRUSH (media data aggregator) and Nabox (multi-chain Web 3.0 wallet). Currently, ViaBTC Capital is focusing its investment on Web 3.0, layer-two and decentralized applications that combine decentralized finance (DeFi), nonfungible tokens and decentralized autonomous organizations. Through close cooperation with ViaBTC’s blockchain ecosystem, these projects can better grow their business, which, in turn, can nourish ViaBTC’s ecosystem, making it a win-win situation.
