  • One of Radix's main aims is to tackle the risk of hacks in decentralized finance (DeFi). It does this through Scrypto, an "asset-orientated smart contract language," which provides developers with an off-the-shelf tool for creating assets and setting the rules by which they can be transacted. The blockchain has more than 50 projects building on it, offering trading, saving, lending, gaming, non-fungible tokens (NFT) and wallets.

    DWF Labs has been splashing the cash of late with this funding round marking its fourth major investment this month. Earlier this week, it led a $40 million funding into decentralized autonomous organization (DAO) tomi, which followed multimillion-dollar purchases of the native tokens of blockchain infrastructure provider Orbs Network and derivatives protocol Synthetix.
