Avail secures $27 million in funding supported by Peter Thiel’s Founders Fund (Feb 26)

Avail, the pioneering blockchain technology start-up, announced on Monday a triumphant achievement: the successful closure of its early-stage funding round, amassing an impressive $27 million. This milestone was led by none other than the esteemed Founders Fund of billionaire Peter Thiel and the renowned crypto investment powerhouse, Dragonfly Capital.

Joining this prestigious endeavor were prominent venture capital firms such as SevenX, Figment, Nomad Capital, and others, further solidifying Avail’s position as a frontrunner in the blockchain revolution.

The resurgence of interest in cryptocurrencies has reignited fascination with the foundational technology driving the industry: blockchain, a revolutionary digital ledger renowned for its unparalleled transparency and security in recording and verifying transactions. Even stalwarts of traditional finance, exemplified by Franklin Templeton, have embraced blockchain’s potential, launching mutual funds on this innovative platform to streamline processes and reduce costs.

Originating in 2020 under the umbrella of crypto powerhouse Polygon Labs, Avail emerged as an independent entity last year. With its cutting-edge technology empowering customers to swiftly construct their own blockchains, Avail stands at the vanguard of innovation.

Under the visionary leadership of former Polygon executives Anurag Arjun and Prabal Banerjee, Avail remains steadfast in its mission. While the exact valuation resulting from this latest funding round remains undisclosed, Arjun affirms that these funds will be judiciously allocated towards propelling product development, expanding our talented team, and amplifying our market presence.

Arjun further underscores the pivotal role of regulatory approvals, particularly in the realm of spot bitcoin exchange-traded funds (ETFs), in catalyzing industry growth. Recognizing Bitcoin as a standard-bearer of the space, Arjun emphasizes the significance of legitimizing this transformative technology within institutional and regulatory spheres, a move poised to inject fresh capital into the industry and fortify support for innovative ventures like Avail.

Despite a relatively subdued private fundraising landscape, marked by a decline in venture capital activity, Avail’s triumphant funding round stands as a beacon of resilience and optimism amidst broader market trends. As we chart a course toward unparalleled innovation and disruption, Avail remains unwavering in our commitment to shaping the future of blockchain technology.
