August 17, 2022 (Investorideas.com Newswire) A significant amount of the new unicorns added last year came from the web3 market. This is in line with the overall trend of growth in the cryptocurrency industry and the rise in popularity of decentralized applications (dApps). According to an analysis by BanklessTimes.com, the number of highest valued web3 unicorns has risen steadily to currently stand at 80.
According to BanklessTimes CEO Jonathan Merry, “The rise of these new web3 unicorns is a sign of the maturing of the cryptocurrency industry. What we’re seeing is the institutionalization of crypto. These are companies that are attracting serious money from mainstream investors.
He added, “As the industry continues to grow and attract more mainstream attention, we can expect to see even more high-valued companies emerge in the space. This is good news for the future of cryptocurrency and decentralized technologies.”
Web3 Super Companies
FTX, the first web3 company on the list, is also the 12th most valuable privately-owned company in the world. The cryptocurrency exchange is currently valued at $32 billion.
Ripple is the second most valuable web3 unicorn with a $15 billion valuation, followed by Blockchain.com and its $14 billion. Other notable firms include OpenSea ($13.3 billion), Alchemy ($10.2 billion), and KuCoin ($10 billion).
