Morph Gearing Up for Seed Round
Morph is reportedly excited over the cooperation with Bitget and specifically highlighted the ability to leverage the investment firm’s large user base of 20 million with 12 million on Bitget wallet alone.
They will also be able to take advantage of Bitget’s ‘wealth of knowledge and strategies’ related to the industry.
“We are extremely grateful for Bitget’s support,” said Morph Co-Founder and CEO Cecilia Hsueh. “The recent capital infusion showcases our incubator’s confidence in Morph’s UVP and sets the stage for the seed funding round. We crafted our proactive financial strategy to tackle an aggressive roadmap and product development timeline to reform the Layer 2 landscape.”
At the same time, Morph has fostered a partnership with a Singapore-based crypto fund called Foresight Ventures. The fund recently bought a majority stake in the online news outlet The Block as part of its broader expansion strategy.
The company expects its Testnet Beta to launch in January 2024 and believes that its recent partnerships position it to initiate a seed funding round. Morph’s mainnet beta is expected to go live in Q2 2024.
