The majority of funds raised in the first two months of investment have been directed towards DeFi, infrastructure, NFT/gaming, and Web3 sectors. Notable funds actively participating in investment include Animoca Brands, Polychain Capital, Framework Ventures, and Shima Capital.

However, The Block points out that despite the increase in the number of investments, the value measured in USD still lags behind the peak period in 2021. The majority of fundraising rounds in recent months have raised less than $10 million. Nevertheless, there have been some notable deals such as EigenLayer ($100 million), Oobit ($25 million), Portal ($34 million).
