Crypto VC Funding Hit $1B Again for Second Consecutive Month

As an analyst with a background in cryptocurrency and venture capital, I find this trend of consecutive months surpassing the $1 billion mark in crypto venture capital funding truly exhilarating. It’s reminiscent of the vibrant funding streak we witnessed back in October-November 2022, which brought new hope and excitement to the industry.

In an exhilarating run of achievements, the crypto venture capital market has surpassed $1 billion in funding for the second month in a row this year. April saw an astonishing inflow of $1.02 billion into the sector through 161 investment deals, mirroring March’s remarkable $1.09 billion from a total of 186 rounds.

This is a noteworthy achievement, evocative of the robust fundraising period in late 2022.

Intriguing was the record-breaking $47 million investment spearheaded by Blackrock in Securitize, a trailblazer in real estate asset tokenization.

The emergence of Monad drew significant attention, with investors Paradigm and Coinbase Ventures pouring in an impressive $225 million, positioning it as a formidable competitor to Solana within the layer-1 blockchain landscape.

As a seasoned analyst, I’ve observed that blockchain infrastructure companies have reaped significant rewards this year, raking in an impressive $1.7 billion through venture capital investments. Decentralized finance protocols haven’t been far behind, with a substantial $626 million in funding as well.

It’s quite unexpected that decentralized autonomous organizations have only managed to raise a relatively small amount of around $3 million by the year 2024.

As a researcher studying the blockchain industry, I’ve discovered that a staggering $3.67 billion has been invested in the sector through 604 funding rounds by the end of 2023. According to DeFiLlama, this figure is set to surpass the impressive $9.3 billion raised in the previous year. Furthermore, the total amount of capital infused into the blockchain industry since June 2014 has exceeded an astounding $100 billion across 5,195 funding rounds.
