Avail’s Total Funding Reaches $75 Million


The funding will accelerate Avail’s mission to solve scalable data availability and interoperability challenges within the web3 sector through their Unification Layer technology stack.

The release stated that the Unification Layer aims to combine data availability, aggregation, and shared security to enable modular blockchains to scale and interoperate seamlessly.

This approach would help address issues of blockchain fragmentation and limited scaling, providing a more efficient and secure infrastructure for web3 applications.

“This Series A funding marks a pivotal moment for Avail as we strive to build the permissionless unification layer for web3,” said Avail co-founder Anurag Arjun.

“With this new capital, we are poised to accelerate our development, expand our global presence, and continue to address the most critical challenges facing web3 today, such as blockchain fragmentation, insufficient data availability, and limited scaling,” stated Arjun.

Recent Developments and Future Plan


Avail also plans to use the new capital to foster partnerships across the web3 ecosystem and further develop its Nexus interoperability layer and Fusion Security layer.

“Their DA solution, paired with their Nexus interoperability layer and Fusion security layer, makes it super seamless and easy for teams to create a new protocol… leveraging Avail’s tech stack,” said Founders Fund partner Joey Krug.

In addition to the $32 million raised in pre-seed and seed rounds, the total funding of the company has reached $75 million, as the company is expected to create a scalable and secure foundation for future blockchain projects.

Recently, Avail’s incentivized testnet “Clash of Nodes” achieved 310 validators at its peak, with nearly 110,000 total accounts created and 116 million transactions processed. The mainnet launch is expected in the coming weeks.
