China Blockchain Conflux Gains $10M Investment From DWF
The investment firm bought the blockchain's native token after it signed a deal with China Telecom.
Conflux, which recently agreed to build blockchain-based SIM cards with China's second-largest wireless carrier, received a $10 million investment from DWF Labs, a digital asset market maker and investment firm.
