  • The company said the funding will be used for the operation of zkTube’s mainnet, which launched on Sept. 10, including mainnet mining, its PayTube wallet and the construction of the layer 2 ecosystem.
  • The funds will also help promote its brand globally and expand the team in several geographies. zkTube Labs said it is expanding its presence by growing its team in Canada and Dubai.
  • Layer 2 projects developed around Ethereum have been generating significant interest lately. zkTube Labs said it plans to list its native token of the zkTube protocol “ZKT” on different exchanges.
