Backing the Web3 founders shaping the ownership economy

Through a comprehensive value proposition of venture investing, engineering and liquidity provisioning, RockawayX supports the pioneers of tomorrow to help Web3 projects ship products faster.

Venture

Venture

We back early-stage startups with more than just capital. Through developer-focused conferences and hackathons, including Solana's Hacker House and Gateway to Cosmos, as well as partnerships with top universities, RockawayX promotes direct access to a pool of global talent.

Engineering

By providing dedicated validators and staking infrastructure for a range of networks from the testnet stage, as well as an in-house Labs team dedicated to development, RockawayX contributes to the decentralization, security and growth of Web3 projects. Our live network monitoring and dashboards use a data-driven approach to proactively identify issues and tailor support for projects based on their stage of development.

Liquidity

We support centralized and decentralized finance projects with additional options for borrowing and the provision of on-chain liquidity, enabling them to scale more quickly and effectively. A dedicated yield fund provides support across our portfolio projects, ranging from exchanges and market makers to lending platforms and options protocols.
