Sep 13, 2023

Funding for crypto startups is becoming increasingly scarce, as venture capital investment in the industry has seen a consistent decline for the past five quarters since Q1 2022, totaling $2.34 billion globally. Investors are hesitant to invest due to concerns about the potential risks associated with stringent regulatory measures and economic uncertainty. To detail the recent developments in the industry, Andreessen Horowitz aka a16z, a prominent US-based venture capital firm known for its significant investments in the industry, opened its first overseas office in London. Detailing on investments, US-based web3 gaming startup Argus Labs picked up $10 million in June this year and Cryptogpt also raised the same amount to expand into the Asian market.
