Recapping an Eventful Week with IoTeX
Hi IoTeX Community,
Since we last reached out to you, we’ve had more than a few events to tell you about. Probably the biggest news being that MachineFi Lab has raised $10M at a $100M valuation, led by Samsung Next, Draper Dragon, and Jump Crypto. This fundraise will let us strongly support more projects to change the web from a taker, extractive economy to one where your real-world efforts and data reward you. That’s a day we’re working tirelessly to make happen. It's time to bring MachineFi to the masses!
The investments by these companies, with their industry expertise and networks, will accelerate the transition to a fairer economy. We’ve all been reading WAGMI (we’re all gonna make it) on social media. But we won’t make it without smart, determined work. That’s what we’re doing. For you, For us. And for future generations.
And while this was wrapping up, we were preparing for events on multiple continents! We’re getting out the word and building our ecosystem person by person.
Let’s dive into it.
MachineFi Lab is an entity that builds infrastructure and tools to empower MachineFi developers. We are excited to embark on this next chapter of IoTeX with the support of top Web3, IoT, and traditional VCs.

IoTeX at Consensus by CoinDesk
Some of our team met up in Austin for Consensus by Coindesk, one of the largest crypto conferences of the year. It was a jam-packed couple of days as we caught up with the Web3 community, filled with the most creative and innovative minds. We saw many old and new faces stop by the IoTeX Booth to share in the excitement of the MachineFi vision. We left feeling more inspired and motivated than ever!
