A weekly update on everything that moves NEAR Protocol
 NO 97 ·  Monday 20 Feb, 2023

 

This week, we're excited to highlight Lyrik Ventures and their investment thesis on the power of NEAR Protocol!

 

As one of the key funds in the space, Lyrik is recognised for their patient approach towards the unfolding and exponential development of the NEAR ecosystem, which is both carefully refined and highly promising. 

We highly recommend that you give Lyrik's investment thesis a read to gain a deeper understanding of their role in the ecosystem and investment strategy. For more information on Lyrik Ventures or to submit a project proposal, please visit Lyrik.Ventures.
