Developer Toolchain Web3API Successfully Raises $1M USD in Pre-Seed Round 🌱
The funds are in. Now, it's time to build.
The Web3API DAO is developing a toolchain that brings a superior developer experience and multiplatform support to Web3. The toolchain will be built to solve many of the integration problems that slow down innovation and hinder adoption for Web3 projects today. This will broaden the gateway to Web3 for developers, enterprises, and beyond.
On December 30, 2020, the Web3API DAO officially closed $1M in its pre-seed funding round.
With special thanks to:
Rarestone Capital, TRGC, Gnosis, Autark Ventures, MANTRA DAO, ZMT Capital, Ascensive Asset Management, D1 Ventures, Koios, Atka Capital, Vendetta Capital, Faculty Group, LD Capital, IOSG Ventures, and A195 Capital.
These backers have joined the Web3API DAO to help bridge the gap between Web3 and Web2 developers, enterprises, and platforms. The Web3API DAO is immensely grateful for the enthusiasm, expediency, and contributions to the project.
The DAO has also partnered with several strategic adopters to provide early feedback and bootstrap network effects across distinct sectors of the Web3 ecosystem:
Gnosis- Building new market mechanisms for decentralized finance
Fleek- Infrastructure for decentralized websites, web & native apps
Rockside- Ethereum transactions validated on time at the best price
Torus- An open-source key management system for Web3
Pocket Network- Trustless access to the full API for any blockchain client through a global, distributed network of node operators
MANTRA DAO- A community-governed DeFi platform focusing on Staking, Lending, and Governance
Abridged- A technology stack to build and manage decentralized projects
DXdao-A DAO that develops, governs, and grows DeFi protocols and products
Squad Games- A radical new way to build video games with mods in mind
Aleph- Decentralized storage and computing for internet-scale applications and DeFi
The Web3API DAO enthusiastically inducts all of the above organizations as members of its initiative in the maturation of the Web3 ecosystem.
Last but not least, we’d also like to shout-out to the builder squads already hard at work driving the roadmap forward:
dOrg - Web3 development collective building out Web3API and helping with adoption
Concorde Studio - Product studio working on the Web3Hub
Node Factory - Blockchain R&D shop working on the Web3API technical specification and core codebase
"Over the past 2 years I've had the pleasure of helping develop solutions for many different Web3 startups. During this time, I've been trying to figure out the missing link inside of the 'protocol-to-application' integration pipeline. After several iterations, I believe what we're building with Web3API is poised to bridge this gap, accelerating Web3's rate of adoption significantly. We are immensely humbled and grateful to everyone in our network that's supported us this far, and I'm looking forward to what happens next once this tooling is in developers' hands." - Jordan Ellis, Tech Lead
As the Web3API toolchain matures and the standard is adopted, the DAO also plans to release value-added services through the Web3Hub. The Hub will be a place for anyone to discover, inspect, and interact with a curated selection of APIs. Developers and enterprises will also be able to utilize the Hub for analytics, automations, alerts, and infrastructural support.
