Blockchain venture capital inflows sharply decreased in October from the previous month. According to Cointelegraph Research, the number of individual deals dropped from 93 to 69 monthly.

The Cointelegraph Research Terminal VC database, which compiles comprehensive details on deals, mergers and acquisition activity, investors, crypto companies, funds and more, shows venture capital inflows plummeted 48.6%, totaling $843.5 million in venture capital (VC) investment, down from $1.64 billion in September.

Big raises despite difficult market conditions

It’s not all bad news. Signals that there is still active interest by VCs in the blockchain industry are flashing daily. In the decentralized finance (DeFi) sector, Uniswap Labs — the team behind the largest decentralized exchange (DEX), Uniswap — secured $165 million in a Series B round led by Polychain Capital, with participation from investors such as Andreessen Horowitz, Paradigm, SV Angel and Variant. The series B funding round for the DeFi protocol brings Uniswap’s total valuation to $1.66 billion.

Meanwhile, crypto custodian Copper raised $196 million in its ongoing Series C round. The overall funding target for Copper has not been publicly determined. Barclays Ventures and Tiger Global Management led Copper’s latest fundraising. The company has previously received backing from Alan Howard, Dawn Capital and Target Global.

Web3 continues to attract investor interest

The Web3 sector accounted for 42% of investor interest in October, with over $350 million flowing in. Investors are eyeing Web3 infrastructure companies. Chainsafe, a firm focused on protocol implementation and cryptographic technology, secured $18.75 million in a Series A led by Round13.

Mobile games publisher Homa Games raised $100 million in a Series B funding round led by Quadrille Capital and Headline.
