The $50M Cross-Chain Ecosystem Fund Powered by Wormhole


The next generation of startups building at the forefront of cross-chain applications now have a new resource at their disposal - the $50M Cross-Chain Ecosystem Fund, powered by Wormhole. If you’re a team building applications or infrastructure that integrates Wormhole’s cross-chain messaging protocol, a wide range of ecosystems and venture funds are now here to support you in your development and go-to-market.

What is Wormhole?

Wormhole is the industry-standard cross-chain messaging protocol, serving as the backbone of the internet of value. By offering developers access to both liquidity and users across more than 20 leading blockchain networks, Wormhole supports a variety of use cases, ranging from DeFi and NFTs to governance and beyond. The platform's messaging layer serves as a foundation for building an array of products, including Wormhole Connect, an in-app bridging widget that requires only 3 lines of code for integration. Leading teams such as Circle (USDC) and Uniswap rely on Wormhole for their cross-chain needs, and thus far, the platform has facilitated the transfer of over $35 billion dollars via hundreds of millions of cross-chain messages.

Who Should Apply?

If you're a builder, a founder, or a developer who aspires to build cutting edge apps, infrastructure, or tools that span multiple ecosystems, you are invited to apply. This is an anti-maxi initiative, not about a single chain or application—it's about bringing crypto together to build cool and useful applications that users love to use.

Who's Behind the Fund?

The Cross-Chain Ecosystem Fund is a testament to the collective vision of over twenty blockchain teams and venture funds. It is managed and operated by Borderless Capital, and the fund is backed by a host of renowned blockchain protocols, infrastructure providers, and institutional investors, including Jump Crypto, Polygon Ventures, Aptos Labs, Solana Foundation, Algorand Foundation, GSR, Arrington Capital, and many others.

These supporters share a common belief in a multi-chain future, where value is created by coming together as one.
