Emin Gün Sirer‘s Ava Labs Avalanche token sale has raised $12 million led by Initialized Capital and other well-known investors including Galaxy Digital, Bitmain, NGC Ventures, and Dragonfly Capital.
Avalanche (previously AVA) has recently gone through a brand consolidation following the successful launch of its Denali Testnet.
Avalanche is a highly-scalable, open-source platform for launching decentralized finance (DeFi) applications. AVA Labs seeks to simplify the launch financial applications using blockchain technology along with a highly scalable network.
John Wu, President of AVA Labs, said they have purposefully and deliberately established their entire project, structure, and token distribution to deliver fair and open access to the Avalanche network:
“We’re excited to have private sale participants that are committed to supporting Avalanche, and building an internet of finance-driven by, and for, its community.”
Avalanche Foundation Limited, the foundation behind the Avalanche network, said it will soon be conducting a public sale using Reg. D Rule 506(c) as well as Reg S for international investors. Investors under Reg D must be deemed accredited and verified to participate in the offering, according to current rules.
Roger Lim, Founding Partner at NGC Ventures, commented on the private offering:
“For decentralized finance to reach its potential, there must be significant improvements to both the volume and velocity of activity networks can process. Avalanche is achieving both through its innovative approach to consensus and deep understanding of how to build highly-performant networks.”
While there are multiple protocols seeking to address the shortcomings of many of the most popular blockchains, Ava has gained solid transaction in its quest to foster DeFi apps and offerings.
“Avalanche is solving the biggest challenges in blockchain technology, and is poised to launch a resilient system that is fast, secure, and efficient,” said Haseeb Qureshi, Managing Partner at Dragonfly Capital.
