The continuous coordination and implementation of funding rounds are quite noticeable in the crypto ecosystem of today. Key investment managers and firms are constantly plunging funds into the sphere.

Earlier, South African trading platform VARL acquired $50 million in its Series B funding round. The fund was raised by investors in the likes of Pantera Group, Alameda Research, Coinbase Ventures, and a host of others. The fund is to be used in expanding VARL businesses in the African region.

These funding rounds are not limited to trading platforms in any way, Ref Finance also realized $4.8 million mid last month. The funding round involved Jump Crypto, Cao Yin, OxMaki, and others as investors. Ref Finance intends to employ the funds to broaden its team to enhance the continuity of creating products and services that belong to DeFi.

Startups are largely at the receiving end of these fundraisers and with this new interest in crypto startups, global adoption and legalization of digital assets are on track to form a trend for the next decade.
