Montreal, Canada, Nov. 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —
It’s no secret that 2022 has been a tumultuous year for the Web3 industry. The industry has witnessed several instances of organisations many believed to be invulnerable, fail spectacularly.
Looking forward, a beneficial consequence is that the distracting frenzy has subdued, giving room to the serious builders to continue innovating with less noise.
Conversely, in Canada, regulators have been effectively collaborating with Canadian Web3 companies to improve consumer protection with Coinsquare being the first Web3 company to receive an IIROC membership.
Incubella’s report provides an insightful glance into the Web3 ecosystem’s progression thanks to the hard work of Canadian blockchain entrepreneurs, leaders, and team-players, all working tirelessly to produce great results.
Insights on the Canadian Web3 ecosystem
Every year, Canadian Web3 companies continue to attract private investment, mostly from post-seed funding as the brightest ideas charge towards Unicorn status. Of the total $4 Billion CAD invested to-date in Canadian Web3 companies, the largest single private investment was Dapper Labs’ $305M USD Series C.
There are currently 5 Canadian Web3 Unicorns, Axelar, Blockstream, Dapper Labs, Figment, & LayerZero Labs. The fastest to achieve Unicorn status is LayerZero Labs, founded in early 2021 and crossed the $1 billion USD valuation mark just over one year later after raising $135 million USD in March of 2022.
