Despite the price of digital assets fluctuating greatly, it does not affect the entry of capital into this market. As reported by blockchain.news on December 20, 2021, Venture capital firms kept a keen eye on the crypto industry to the extent of pouring $30 billion in this sector in 2021.
Current venture capital funding is nearly four times its previous all-time high of $8 billion recorded in 2018.
