Web3 Infrastructure Startup Zeeve raises $2.65M in seed fundraising headed by Leo Capital

Zeeve | June 30, 2022

Leo Capital and Blu Ventures contributed $2.65 million to the seed round of Zeeve, an enterprise-grade no-code platform for automating blockchain infrastructure. The money obtained from this round will be utilized to strengthen product development, expand the technical team, and broaden the company's appeal to DApp developers and multinational organizations. Using its no-code platform, Zeeve makes it simple to install Blockchain nodes and Decentralized Apps on enterprise-grade infrastructure. The stakeholders may manage their nodes and networks with powerful analytics and real-time notifications, and nodes can be deployed in a matter of minutes. The majority of the important permissioned blockchain protocols, such as Hyperledger Fabric, R3 Corda, Fluree, and Hyperledger Sawtooth, as well as public blockchain protocols, such as Bitcoin, Ethereum, Polygon, Binance Smart Chain, Tron, Avalanche, and Fantom, are supported by Zeeve's solution. Zeeve was established in 2021 by Dr. Ravi Chamria, a serial entrepreneur, tech evangelist, and co-founders Ghan Vashistha and Sankalp Sharma. Zeeve has since become a leader in the development of simple-to-deploy web3 infrastructure, with the trust of more than 10,000 developers, Blockchain startups, and businesses. "The Internet has come a long way - from the simple web pages of web1.0 to the decentralized web3.0. Lots of exciting innovations have happened in the web3.0 space like DeFi, NFTs, Decentralized Insurance, Prediction Markets, etc. We should expect to see a lot more innovation over the next five years, revolutionizing how we use the internet. With further advancements in blockchain technology, we may soon see web3 utilized for everything from online commerce to voting and governance." Dr. Ravi Chamria, CEO, Zeeve Web3 is reportedly being hailed as the internet of the future by Harvard Business Review. Web3 has the power to increase everyone's access to the internet. More quickly than in previous web iterations, Web3 infrastructure may be used by new enterprises to create communities around their brands and product concepts. By linking to content networks powered by blockchain technology and granting users some level of data governance, even currently operating platforms may use such prospects. All of this suggests that the web will appear very different — and far more open — than it does right now in the future. "In this new era of the internet, companies like Zeeve play a pivotal part in making it easy for enterprises and Blockchain startups to deploy blockchain nodes and consume APIs to connect with Blockchains. Zeeve's offering helps DevOps teams ease their operational, security, and performance challenges while deploying and managing Blockchain nodes and networks," says Tarun Upaday, Partner, Blu Ventures.
