Yoz Labs, a Web3 notification platform, has raised $3.5 million to further its aim to make scalable messaging rails that would enable developers to send immediate on-chain notifications directly to users.
Led by early-stage venture firm Electric Capital, the funding round included several Web3 investors and angels such as Collab+Currency, Coinbase Ventures, Dapper Labs, Form Capital, North Island, Mike Krieger and Naval Ravikant.
Yoz Labs describes itself as a Web3 platform designed to simplify user notification by offering a “low-to-no code interface” that only requires a smart contract to get started, according to the firm’s announcement.
“Notifications have been such a powerful tool in building best-in-class applications,” said Yoz Labs founder Will Liu. “As crypto gains more traction, you can argue that notifications are a prerequisite to unlock the next tier of consumer adoption.”
The leader in news and information on cryptocurrency, digital assets and the future of money, CoinDesk is an award-winning media outlet that strives for the highest journalistic standards and abides by a strict set of editorial policies.

CoinDesk operates as an independent subsidiary, and an editorial committee, chaired by a former editor-in-chief of The Wall Street Journal, is being formed to support journalistic integrity.
