One of the most recent projects to jump on board the trend is Harmony (ONE). The project is a blockchain protocol with a 2-second finality. Aside from this, the project offers cross-chain bridges to layer 1 protocols like BTC, DOT, and BSC.
The project recently announced a $300 million fund aimed at expanding its ecosystem. Through the fund, the platform aims to enable 10 thousand crypto founders, builders, and creatives. After the announcement, the platform’s native token ONE rallied by more than 100%.
Today, we are announcing our $300 million ecosystem fund to accelerate 10,000 builders.
