- The company is a venture between ScienceMagic.Inc, macro investor and RealVision founder Raoul Pal, and crypto research firm Delphi Digital.
- The New York-based firm raised the investment from Liberty City Ventures, Digital Currency Group (DCG), Coinbase Ventures, Noam Gottesman and Alan Howard. DCG is the owner of CoinDesk.
- ScienceMagic.Studios will assist Web 3 companies in multiple stages of development ranging from early-stage branding to the creation of digital assets. The funding will help the company scale in order to meet demand.
