Cardano Gets Investment from EMURGO
The new and rising Cardano ecosystem is currently getting a major investment coming from the blockchain tech firm known as EMURGO. In a recent tweet, EMURGO revealed that it is injecting a whopping $100 million into the whole Cardano ecosystem through an investment vehicle in order to bolster development in a number of key areas.
The areas in which the investment is to be used include decentralized finance as well as non-fungible token or NFT technology.

EMURGO Africa and EMURGO Ventures
The whole Cardano ecosystem investment vehicle will reportedly be split into two different entities. Each of these entities has a distinct focus area, namely EMURGO Africa as well as EMURGO Ventures, according to an EMURGO blog post.
EMURGO Africa is currently aiming to support over three hundred different regional startups through the help of seed funding and incubation. This is to ultimately have Cardano’s new blockchain adopted as the widespread technological platform standard in Africa for certain socially impactful solutions.
Capital Allocation for Seed Investments
It was noted that EMURGO Ventures is set to focus on other developed markets in order to facilitate the building of solutions and services on Cardano. This is with the help of a capital allocation for seed investments into a number of Cardano-focused startups as well as middleware solution companies.
These include those that are building decentralized financial services or DeFi, non-fungible token projects or NFTs, blockchain developer education tools, and even other decentralized applications. Cardano founder Charles Hoskinson gave a statement. Cardano has even climbed to #4 on CoinGecko, making it one of the biggest cryptocurrencies of today.
