We dissected into VC investment and projects trends, where Out of all the overarching sectors in the blockchain industry in decentralized finance (DeFi,) centralized finance (CeFi,) blockchain infrastructure, Web3 and nonfungible tokens (NFT,) DeFi was basically always king for VC capital inflows. That all changed in Q2, when Web3 garnered around 42% of all the individual deals, leaving DeFi in a far distant second at 16%. This trend was highlighted further when analyzing the most active investors, who made around 42% of all deal activity for Q2, a drop from 65% in Q1.
Our discussion focused on what is shaping the industry and a Venture perspective.
