MH Ventures, one of the leading venture capital firms in the blockchain and cryptocurrency space, is participating in seed round funding of $18.2million for Shardeum, the world's first EVM-based Layer 1 blockchain which uses sharding to increase TPS (transactions per second) with the addition of every new node while retaining atomic composability.
Shardeum plans to use the funds raised to expand its team and drive technological advancements.
Kamran, Co-founder & partner at MH Ventures said "Shardeum is an example of the evolution we’re seeing in blockchain technology and in particular, scalability without giving up security and decentralization, which is the “blockchain trilemma”. We felt that Shardeum has great potential for growth given the EVM compatibility, therefore not compromising any learning curve for developers and projects alike to adopt the chain."
Based on EVM technology, Shardeum is a smart contract platform that provides low gas fees forever to ensure true decentralization. It employs strong security measures through dynamic state sharding.
Nischal Shetty, the co-founder of Shardeum, commented, “We’ll see Web3 reach over 1 Billion users in the next few years, and now’s the time to build the infrastructure to support this growth. We’re thrilled to have the support of MH Ventures as we build Shardeum to be a scalable L1 blockchain which ensures low gas forever while maintaining decentralization.”
MH Ventures has teamed up with some of the most well-known names in the crypto and blockchain industries, including Lend, magpie, Web3PORT, Sonic Wallet, SmartToken Labs, Seashell, Decaf, Tatsumeeko, WINCAST, etc. They are passionate about investing in and supporting disruptive technologies and the people behind them.
