Ethereum and the future of blockchain and Web 3.0
Tenderly has already made a name for itself in blockchain development with its visual debugger and transaction simulator. Therefore, it is no surprise that the project quickly caught the eye of investors.
“We’re excited to be joining forces with Tenderly as they pave the way for faster blockchain adoption and bring Web 3.0 into the mainstream,” says Andrei Brasoveanu from Accel.
Recreating traditional Web 2.0 applications for Web 3.0 has become a competitive challenge for blockchain developers around the world. Blockchain applications are core to the emerging Web 3.0 universe, from decentralized platforms for lending and exchange, to mechanisms for proof of digital identity and ownership.
“We’re also pleased to have Tenderly take us into new territory as our first investment in Serbia, increasing our presence in CEE alongside longstanding partnerships with UiPath in Romania and Miro and Avito in Russia,” Brasoveanu adds.
