Anoma Foundation Raises $25m to Advance Third Generation Intent-Centric Architecture

Anoma Foundation funding round

The Anoma Foundation has announced the completion of a $25 million funding raise co-led by CMCC Global, heralding an exciting new era to bring the third generation of blockchain to the market. 

The third investment round had some notable investors in the space, including Electric Capital, Delphi Digital, Dialectic, KR1, Spartan, NGC, MH Ventures, Bixin Ventures, No Limit, Plassa, Perridon Ventures, Anagram, and Factor. In addition, more than 30 angel investors participated from fields as diverse as L1 founders, dApp developers, and ZK cryptographers.

This financial support demonstrates the widespread recognition of Anoma’s pioneering intent-centric architecture, which has brought about a paradigm shift in the world of blockchain infrastructure.

Anoma is the first generalized intent-centric blockchain architecture which enables truly decentralized applications, from decentralized DEXs to decentralized rollup sequencers. Compared to existing architectures such as Ethereum/EVM, it makes dApps an order of magnitude more composable and an order of magnitude easier to build.

The introduction of these innovative primitives by Anoma’s intent-centric design allows existing Web2.5 apps like rollups, decentralized exchanges, and NFT marketplaces to reach full decentralization. Furthermore, this innovative design creates opportunities for previously inconceivable applications on existing systems.

We are thrilled to have co-led this fundraising round of Anoma. The team is pushing the boundaries of protocol design and reimagining how base layer infrastructure should operate. It is refreshing to see Anoma’s designs and philosophy against the backdrop of a homogenous group of layer-1 smart contract platforms.

Anoma has received a $25 million fund to enhance its intent-centric architecture, boost research and development, and create user-friendly tools for developers to build innovative applications. The fund will also be used to form strategic partnerships and support growth within the ecosystem.

Anoma’s intent-centric architecture represents a significant advancement across all fronts of blockchain infrastructure including scalability, UX, privacy and interoperability. We are excited to be part of their journey towards revolutionizing decentralized applications.
