Block Dream Fund will help early stage startups in Solana ecosystem to identify growth opportunities in new markets, and expand business operations to the asia-pacific region. As a global brand, Block Dream Fund’s media network will help startups discover new customers across the world. In the last month alone, over 50 market-ready projects launched on Solana. These included industry-leading DeFi applications, markets for NFTs, and infrastructure to support the next generation of Web 3 companies. Recent initiatives such as the Solana x Serum DeFi Hackathon saw 100+ project submissions from 3,000 builders, just as Raydium, an automated market maker (AMM) and liquidity provider built on the Solana blockchain for the Serum decentralized exchange (DEX), surpassed $160m total value locked, increasing more than 3000% in less than two months. With the rapid growth of the Solana ecosystem, the Block Dream Fund looks forward to providing continued support to companies building on Solana.
