Sharding-focused blockchain startup Shardeum has raised $5.4 million in a strategic funding round.
According to The Block, Shardeum’s valuation has reached $248 million.
“This investment will allow us to prioritize decentralization while expanding our community around the world through training and other key initiatives,” said Kelsey McGuire, head of development at Shardeum.
The funding round included Amber Group, Galxe, J17 Capital, TRGC, Jsquare, Bware Labs, Tané Labs, Hyperithm Group, and Luganodes.

The developers plan to launch the main Shardeum network at the end of 2023.
The project is led by the founder of the Indian exchange WazirX Nischal Shetty and blockchain architect Omar Saed.
