Cake DeFi Launches $100M Venture Arm For Web3, Gaming, And NFT

Cake DeFi, the Singapore-based decentralized finance (DeFi) services firm, has announced the launch of a $100 million venture arm dedicated to serving as accelerators for Web3, gaming, nonfungible tokens (NFT), and other crypto initiatives.

It has been reported that the newly launched $100 million venture arm, Cake DeFi Ventures (CDV), will fund crypto startups that complement the company’s core business. According to Cake DeFi, the venture firm “will be focused on investing in tech startups across Web3, the metaverse, the NFT space, gaming, esports, and fintech spaces.”

However, Cake DeFi’s primary suite of services includes liquidity mining, staking, and lending of cryptocurrencies, aimed at generating high returns from existing crypto holdings.

The report stated:

“Portfolio companies have the opportunity to access numerous Cake products, connections, users, resources, and expertise within the global blockchain industry.”

U-Zyn Chua, the Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer of Cake DeFi, said that investing in early-stage crypto startups “will allow us to enhance our Web3 offerings.” In addition to advising relevant startups to share their project details with CDV, the company has also opened doors to other VC firms and investors for co-investment opportunities or strategic partnerships.

Likewise, a new report from Big Four accounting firm KPMG highlighted a 10x increase in Singapore’s crypto-related investments last year, up from $110 million in 2020 to $1.48 billion in 2021.

As reported, the substantial increase in crypto investments is primarily due to active governmental efforts to stimulate the capital market. Most notably, the Singapore government established a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC) listing framework, which allows fast-growing firms and unicorns to go public.

Thus, this year, the government has also taken proactive measures to regulate speculative digital assets.
