BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS, June 19, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — OKX Blockdream Ventures, an investment arm of the world’s leading cryptocurrency platform OKXpublished a report on its investments for the month of May and describes a drop in venture capital funding for startups in May 2022.

The report, titled “OKX Blockdream Ventures Monthly Report – May 2022,” shows that the investment arm funded five startups in May, including SSV Network, Ever Finance, WAX, Sweatcoin and Alien Swap. It also relates to the fact that, globally, investment institutions have been more hesitant in the face of greater market swings and increased risk.

Dora Yue, Founder, OKX Blockdream Ventures, said: “The current crypto winter will not prevent us from investing in innovative blockchain projects and the teams they need to continue refining and perfecting their products. We are also convinced that companies that are both healthy and innovative will survive this winter and come out of it better than before.

The report further claims that the explosion of NFTs has boosted a number of other markets, including art, music, photography, sports and games. As of June 1, 2022, the total market capitalization of NFT marketplaces was $16.972 billion, an explosive growth of 533x from two years ago.
