In the world of venture capitalism, crypto firms have been experiencing a slowdown in funding during the first quarter of 2023. However, a new report from Galaxy Research suggests that this could change in the second quarter, with the recent surge in crypto prices potentially bringing about a rebound in VC activity.
Despite regulatory turbulence surrounding the crypto industry in the United States, the country remains the top destination for firms looking to raise capital. Galaxy Research’s report revealed that out of the $2.4 billion invested by VCs in Q1 2023, the majority went to US-based firms.
It’s worth noting that data on venture deals is often revised at a later date, so the $2.4 billion figure may change in the future. Nonetheless, the report highlights that while VC investments have been declining since reaching a peak of almost $13 billion in Q1 2022, the number of deals made has actually increased by almost 20%.
This suggests that while the total amount of capital invested has fallen, there are still opportunities for crypto firms to secure funding from VCs. Furthermore, with crypto prices experiencing a boost in late Q1 2023, there could be a correlation between price gains and VC activity.
However, it’s important to note that the report does not provide any financial advice, and investors should always conduct their own research before making any investment decisions. While the potential for a rebound in VC activity is promising, the crypto industry remains volatile and subject to regulatory uncertainty.
