Raleon Raises $3.8m to Boost Web3 Marketing Engagement and Retention Platform

Raleon, a North Carolina-based Web3 engagement platform, has announced raising $3.8 million in a Seed funding round anchored by Blockchange Ventures, a venture capital (VC) firm that invests in early-stage blockchain companies, protocols, and applications.

The funding round also saw participation from gaming-focused VC Play Ventures, Web3 accelerator Alliance DAO, and crypto-focused investor Portal Ventures, according to Raleon‘s official announcement.

The startup, founded in 2022 by entrepreneurs Nathan Snell and Adam Larson, operates a platform dedicated to enhancing user engagement in the Web3 space, assisting brands, games, and decetralized applications (dApps) in maintaining and increasing their user base.

Its Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) platform encompasses features like growth analytics, Web3 marketing automation, and Embedded Quests, utilizing both on-chain and off-chain data to maximize user retention and conversion rates.

Embedded Quests, Raleon’s latest product, allows dApps to configure their own unique quests, fully embedded in their dApp, with no coding required. It also has a conversational, chat-like experience that offers brands a personalized journey in building customer relationships.

“The Embedded Quest feature is more than just gamification; it’s a versatile engagement tool. It’s an innovative approach to growing and nurturing communities, improving user onboarding, and driving long term loyalty in a fun and interactive,” Snell, who is co-founder and CEO of the company, said.

Before Raleon, Snell was instrumental in co-founding nCino, a global frontrunner in cloud banking established in 2015, which evolved into a publicly listed entity valued at $7 billion.

The startup said it will use the fresh capital to expand its team and continue building out its engagement and retention platform in Web3, including Embedded Quests.

Raleon’s Seed funding round comes as investor interest in Web3 continues to grow as incentivizing and rewarding user behavior on the internet has become a holy grail for many web companies.

According to a June report released by WeMarketResearch, the global Web3 blockchain market is expected to reach a value of about $87 billion in 2033 from $1.3 billion in 2022.

In July, Web3 marketing analytics firm Safary also released a report that showed 71 startups have raised over $600 million in the embryonic Web3 digital marketing sector, with questing and loyalty platforms as the most well-funded categories.
