Crypto companies have already raised $30 billion in 2022 – Coins.fr

Crypto players raised $30.3 billion in the first half of 2022 alone, more than in all of 2021, according to Messari. CeFi alone weighs $10.2 billion.

“Despite the bear market, there was more investment in the first half of 2022 than in all of 2021. Over 30 billion dollars! greeted analyst Tom Dunleavy of Messari on Twitter.

During this period, the research firm identified 1,199 fundraisers totaling $30.3 billion. The sharp slowdown in the 2nd quarter, according to PitchBook, is still worth noting. This trend is less obvious for Messari.

CeFi, the king of capital in cryptocurrencies

Only startups NFT and Web3 completed 530 rounds within the first 6 months. This is far more than DeFi (195), Infrastructure (252) or CeFi (222).

However, the cost is largely dominated by centralized crypto funding. These companies raised $10.2 billion. More than 50% of the series cost more than $10 million.

Fueled by user adoption, this success of CeFi is not without controversy, however. On the occasion of the CFF crypto forum, several experts pointed to CeFi’s responsibility in the liquidity crisis, as reported by Coins.fr.

In June, almost $2 billion was still raised in CeFi, the “king of capital”, with 41 transactions. It was still a lot less than the previous month with fifty transactions.

$35.9 billion in 1H funds

In comparison, DeFi shows a fundraising recovery in June with 36 rounds totaling $624 million. In May, these losses amounted to $22 and $224 million, respectively.

But, of course, the first year, when the increase in capital raised is the most significant. In the first half of 2021, Messari recorded 194 deals worth $767 million.

As for activities in 2022, it is necessary to mention the funds, which are also very active. In the first half of the year, the latter held 151 fundraisers (including 116 for crypto funds) worth $35.9 billion. This corresponds to a jump of more than 800% in one year.
