WalletConnect Raises $11M to Let Crypto Wallets Talk to Each Other

WalletConnect, a product for connecting Ethereum wallets, has raised $11 million in a Series A funding round co-led by Union Square Ventures and 1kx at an undisclosed valuation, according to an announcement shared with CoinDesk. The capital will help scale wallet interoperability and develop a generalized messaging layer.

  • “Web 3 isn’t complete without some form of medium to communicate between users,” WalletConnect co-founder Pedro Gomes told CoinDesk in an email. “Since wallets essentially introduce digital identities that are portable across applications, we are able to create a shared messaging layer that isn’t owned by any particular wallet or application.”
  • “You could imagine this today as if a Telegram user and a WhatsApp user could message each other,” Gomes continued.
  • Founded in 2018, WalletConnect now has integrations with over 100 wallets and more than 200 applications, including Twitter.
  • WalletConnect is in the process of developing a multi-protocol messaging network. The first protocols will relate to direct messaging between wallet users and push notifications from apps for on- and off-chain events.
  • WalletConnect previously raised a $1.25 million seed round early last year led by 1kx.
