Dunamu gave funding to 26 blockchain startups as part of a multi-year investment roadmap.
The parent company of South Korean cryptocurrency exchange Upbit has invested almost $50 million in blockchain startups since March 2018, English-language Korean business news outlet The Investor reported on May 15.
Dunamu, which created a dedicated investment subsidiary, Dunamu & Partners, at the same time last year, has given cash to a total of 26 businesses.
In total — under plans it announced previously — the company aims to invest 100 billion won ($84 million) into the industry.
“Our goal is to contribute to the healthy growth of the blockchain ecosystem by actively investing in startups with world-class technology and services with potential for real-life implementation,” The Investor quotes Ryan Lee, CEO of Dunamu & Partners, as saying. He continues:
“Dunamu and Dunamu & Partners’ strategy of identifying and investing in innovative tech and finance startups, regardless of size, stage and region will continue in 2019.”
As Cointelegraph reported, South Korea has recently seen some large blockchain and crypto-related investments. Last month, a Japanese fund funneled $200 million into the operator of fellow exchange Bithumb.
For Dinamu, investment will in particular go towards entities engaged in mainstream adoption of blockchain services, regulation-compliant fintech and content creation, The Investor notes.
