The fundraising landscape in cryptocurrency has significantly evolved from when it was a young ecosystem to the thriving industry that is home to a diversified group of many successful firms it is now. In 2021, the industry witnessed an impressive record of more than $25.1 billion in private investment.
In most cases, start-up fundraising rounds involve private investment allocations that are exclusively geared towards high net-worth individuals or institutional investors. This means that retail investors and crypto communities are not able to access these private deals, which potentially generate big returns on investments.
Meanwhile, it's true that projects will likely receive fewer marketing resources or less strategic support from their backers after being launched.
