FTX Ventures, the investment arm of cryptocurrency exchange FTX, and Liberty City Ventures have invested $20 million in DoraHacks, a multi-chain Web3 developer incentive platform to speed up the hacker movement’s projects.
DoraHacks will use the funds to accelerate the launch of several of its initiatives, thanks to a Series B1 investment sponsored by FTX Ventures and Liberty City Venture. Dora Grant DAO, a decentralized grant community, and Dora Infinite Fund, a permanent tech venture, are two of the company’s projects.
Circle Ventures, Gemini Frontier Fund, Sky9 Capital, Crypto.com, and Amber Group, were among the investors in the round.
DoraHacks received an $8 million investment fund from Binance Labs last year. In addition, Dora Factory, DoraHacks’ DAO-as-a-service incubation, raised $20 million in the next round. Following FTX and Liberty City’s $20 million commitment, the total investment in Dora projects has now surpassed $50 million in the last 18 months.
DoraHacks is notable for bringing together international Web3 startups through hackathons and award programs. The company’s platform has helped over 2000 entrepreneurs, and development teams earn $25 million in grants.
DoraHacks has previously demonstrated its commitment to assisting technology and decentralized governance systems. For example, in the ETHDenver and OpenSea hackathons, the business developed and implemented MACI, a zero-knowledge, collision-resistant voting mechanism.
