Binance Labs, the venture capital arm of the leading crypto exchange, has announced the launch of a new fund that will focus its action on Web3 and blockchain technologies. The fund, which will launch with $500 million in capital, will invest in companies that take cryptocurrencies and extend their use cases using Web3 and other technologies.
The fund has the participation of DST Global Partners and Breyer Capital, amongst other firms and investors. Binance CEO Changpeng Zhao stated that one of the objectives of this fund is to ease the connection of elements destined to accelerate the adoption of these new technologies. He declared:
The goal of the newly closed investment fund is to discover and support projects and founders with the potential to build and to lead Web3 across defi, NFTs, gaming, metaverse, social, and more.
However, Binance also announced that it will invest in more mature projects including early-stage companies in areas such as defi, NFTs, gaming, metaverse, social, and crypto, and also in already established companies that would act as partners to Binance — extending its functions and reach by using its platform.
