  • ChainSafe's focus is on Web3 infrastructure, particularly with regard to gaming. Its flagship product is web3.unity, which connects games using the development engine Unity with blockchain technologies.

    Some believe that gaming could provide blockchain technology with a much-desired killer use case in order to truly carry it into the mainstream. While still relatively nascent, there are some positive signs. Gaming decentralized apps (dapps) accounted for around 60% of all blockchain activity in July this year, according to data by DappRadar.

    With the new investment, ChainSafe plans to accelerate its product development and expand its team, which currently sits at around 120 across offices in Toronto, Berlin and Zagreb.
