In an industry first, yWhales has become the first Web3 startup to fully fund its seed round of investment from its global community comprised of the top business innovators, entrepreneurs, and investors. The new Web3 ecosystem has raised $5 million at an $80 million valuation.
ST. LOUIS, Sept. 27, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — yWhales’ funding success has come at the height of a bear market, where venture capital and traditional investors have been hesitant to take on new risks. Raising the full seed funding without external investors in such a tough global economic environment makes yWhales’ funding milestone even more notable.
Jay Steinback, CEO of yWhales, says, “Technological giants dominate Web2 dictating how every web-based company and user should work. Web3 puts the power back into the hands of individuals. It connects people and networks in a way that will redefine how we work.
“Our funding success shows just how powerful the Web3 community can be. It is a resounding vote of confidence in our business, and it validates our belief that the world is on its way to a web shaped by communities of passionate, engaged individuals. Just like ours. This is the power of our community and our team“, says Zemfira Khisaeva, President of yWhales.
