Web3 Security Service Providers, Liquid Stakers Receive $60 Million In Funding

The latest update from the cryptocurrency has it  that $60 million in funding has been won by 11 cryptocurrency industry startups this week. The report states that these expenditures have mainly been directed at improving the security of Web3 platforms and liquid staking.

While explaining the situation, James Cirrone, in his article on BlockWork, said that this increase in investment emphasizes the importance of decentralized finance’s growth and the Web3 ecosystem’s urgent need for strong security measures. Cirrone explained that the focus on liquid staking is one prominent feature of this financing trend.

The company, however, said it aim to democratize staking by offering more approachable options for cryptocurrency enthusiasts.

Helio and  Synclub had a merger. Synclub already has native staking for several popular cryptocurrencies, such as Tron (TRX), Cosmo (ATOM), Polkadot (DOT), and Binance Coin (BNB). Cirrone, however, believes that this strategy will probably draw more people to join in the staking landscape.
