DFINITY, that aims to make what it describes as “Web Computer” raised a new funding of more than $100 Mln Swiss francs from partners that conjointly featured blockchain-focused investment outfit Polychain Capital.
Both Polychain and Andreessen via its investment fund a16z had antecedently participated within the startup’s investment, donating around more than $60 Mln in February.
Having raised funds around $200 Mln since its foundation back in 2015, DFINITY ultimately need to make a platform which is able to “host the world’s next generation of software packages and services on a public network.”
TechCrunch quotes a16z partner Chris Dixon mentioning:
“The net computer is off course to become a vital piece of the long run technology stack.”
Mentioning further he said that this move marks an extra commitment from Andreessen to the cryptocurrency ecosystem, the corporate in April was able to raise more than $130 Mln funding in blockchain project Basis’ stablecoin.
More recently, in July, Andreesen participated in a very $45 Mln funding, for blockchain cloud computing platform Oasis Labs as a part of its tactics to facilitate other firms adopt blockchain technology.
