Enterprise blockchain provider BlockApps has announced that it has raised $41 million in Series A funding. This round was led by venture capital firm New Enterprise Associates (NEA), with participation from other notable firms such as Samsung Ventures, Google Ventures, and Comcast Ventures. Crypto Lists LTD reports that the company plans to use the new funds to expand its sales and marketing efforts, as well as to develop new products and features for its platform.

Morgan Creek Digital, Eidetic Ventures, and Givic were among the new participants in the round. Existing investors ConsenSys, Bloccelerate, and Tachyon Ventures also contributed rather generously. This brings BlockApps‘ total funding to date to $70 million. Do they really need that much? What will BlockApps do with the newly raised money?
Blocksolve will also use the money to “expand its associate program and include more real assets to STRATO, the company’s industry-leading enterprise blockchain platform.” Similar to other networks, an enterprise blockchain is a decentralized platform that allows users to communicate and interact with one another. The visibility of data on this network is restricted to the participants, which makes it ideal for businesses that want to keep their data private.
This is a huge vote of confidence in the company and its technology, which is already being used by major enterprises such as Samsung, Google, and Comcast. With this new funding, BlockApps is well-positioned to continue its growth and dominance in the enterprise blockchain space.
Blockchains are the topic of the day and are being studied, used, and developed in many industries. In 2015, BlockBlocks was founded to “address some of the world’s biggest challenges and encourage sectors to reconsider what is possible with blockchain technology — especially when it comes to navigating today’s sustainability challenges and supply chain difficulties,” according to Murtaza Hussain, the company’s CEO.
In 2015, STRATO debuted on Microsoft Azure, and its clients include Bayer Crop Science, the United States government, and Blockchain for Energy, a consortium of major energy companies. BlockApps has released an application that traces food and agricultural items from seed to retail, in just 14 months. It’s also developed a carbon data management solution for businesses.
What’s in a great blockchain?
Crypto Lists got reviews over over 30 different types of blockchains. While the most used is the Ethereum blockchain, Binance Smart Chain (BSC) is not far behind when it comes to daily transaction volume. One of the fastest growing blockchains, that’s also very fast in terms of transaction speed – is Solana blockchain. When it comes to the more secretive blockchains, it’s worth mentioning Secret Network. Which is your favourite blockchain? Everyone value different things in blockchain technology, but most investors and users care about fees, transaction speed, scalability, security, transparency, the technology behind and the level of anonymity.
