Moonbeam Investment

We were delighted to participate in Moonbeam investment round alongside Hypersphere Capital and HashKey Group in September. Moonbeam is an Ethereum compatible smart contract platform on the Polkadot network and is a new, powerful, scalable blockchain that makes it easy to build interoperable decentralised applications (“dApps”) that can integrate and run in parallel with other blockchains, including Ethereum and Bitcoin.
