Subspace lets developers run Web3 apps at Internet scale, providing a simple interface for quickly deploying multi-chain decentralised apps that auto-scale with demand. It seamlessly integrates with existing blockchains, layer two protocols, and decentralized applications, allowing it to serve as a foundational infrastructure layer for the entire Web3 ecosystem. Subspace intends to empower builders to unlock the next wave of crypto adoption by supporting NFTs, GameFi, and the Metaverse at Internet scale.
Keld van Schreven, Managing Director and Co-Founder of KR1, commented:

They had a successful seed round with world class investors and this fundraise allows them to drastically scale up their team.
