During the event, visitors and investors will have the chance to witness ten promising projects that Cypher Capital is backing. “We support unique and innovative projects, which we believe will help shape the future of this industry. As an investment firm, it is our duty and mission to stand by such projects and ignite their flame so that the sparks reach new heights and minds,” added Bijan.
Cypher Capital has been making waves since its inception and has invested in around twenty projects in the areas of GameFi, the Metaverse, DeFi / CeFi, and Decentralized Mobility, Infrastructure and Security.
Focusing on GameFi and Web 3.0, Cypher Capital has invested in MetaOne, a business building a platform to onboard Web 2.0 gamers to Web 3.0 games and empower guilds with analytics and an NFT hub, currently focused on the Southeast Asian market. This category also includes KILT, a blockchain identity protocol for generating self-sovereign verifiable credentials and decentralized identifiers, to provide practical, secure identity solutions for enterprises and consumers.
As for the Metaverse category, Cypher Capital has invested in SecondLive, a create-to-earn social metaverse incubated by Binance Labs. Cypher Capital has also recently set up an ecosystem fund with Ocean Protocol, the decentralized layer for data sharing and monetization, by investing in upcoming projects built on this protocol.
Among the DeFi / CeFi investments presented is Minterest, a protocol providing users with a decentralized token money market featuring industry-leading value capture mechanisms. Minterest’s incentive structure facilitates and promotes broader DeFi adoption while maximizing returns for investors. Finblox, a next-gen ‘super app’ where users can game, trade and earn with their crypto, all from a single platform – will also feature at the summit.
Other DeFi projects include SingularityDAO, a DeFi protocol designed to maximize Alpha generation regardless of market trend, and Sheesha FINANCE, a DeFi multi-chain platform offering a level playing field for all investors to access a diversified portfolio of projects.
