Calimero secures $8.5 million funding
Calimero Network, a blockchain infrastructure provider that claims to use cutting-edge privacy and permissioning techniques to bring to life private, customizable shards for enterprises, has secured $8.5 million in seed funding.
Per a tweet by the team, the funding round was co-led by Khosla Ventures, Lyrik Ventures, and NEAR Foundation. The raised capital will be used to develop private sharding solutions for the NEAR protocol.
Powered by the NEAR protocol, Calimero gives users the choice of easily deploying ready-to-use solutions from its marketplace or building their own decentralized applications from the ground up.
The platform also enables users to quickly connect to private and public Web3 applications like NFTs, DeFi, and more, without sacrificing confidentiality.
On Jan. 20, reports emerged that web3 startup Obligate (formerly FQX) had secured $8.5 million from Circle Ventures, and others, to build a new blockchain-based bond issuance platform for businesses.
At the time of writing, NEAR Protocol’s native NEAR token is trading at around $2.58, representing an over 20% increase in the past seven days, with a market cap of $2.19 billion, according to CoinMarketCap.
