MegaLabs Secures $20M to Develop Real-Time MegaETH Blockchain

MegaLabs announced a $20 million seed funding round led by Dragonfly to improve MegaETH, positioning it as the first real-time blockchain capable of processing 100,000 transactions per second with millisecond-level responsiveness.

This invention aims to bridge the gap between current blockchain constraints and the needs of mainstream consumer apps, providing a smooth user experience comparable to major Web2 platforms while preserving blockchain’s key ideals of decentralization and security.

The fundraising round includes contributions from institutional investors such as Figment Capital, Folius Ventures, Robot Ventures, Big Brain Holding, Tangent, and Credibly Neutral, indicating a growing interest in novel blockchain solutions.

Renowned players in the cryptocurrency sector, such as Vitalik Buterin and Joseph Lubin, have also taken part, demonstrating industry trust in MegaETH’s ability to alter decentralized finance (DeFi), gaming, social networking, and other areas.

MegaETH’s technological prowess stems from its heterogeneous blockchain architecture, which optimizes performance across a wide range of hardware configurations, as well as its highly efficient EVM execution environment.

These ideas differ from standard homogeneous blockchain architectures, promising considerable improvements in throughput, latency, and resource efficiency. These strategies contrast sharply with today’s homogeneous systems, which can only use less than 1% of a modern Web2 server’s compute capacity.

“Our mission is to bring Web2-level real-time performance to crypto. By leveraging Ethereum’s superior security and censorship resistance guarantees, we can explore a much larger design space to create the fastest execution layer and state synchronization network possible without compromising the core values of blockchains,” stated Yilong Li, CEO & Co-Founder of MegaLabs.

MegaETH’s public testnet is set to begin in early fall, allowing developers to explore its possibilities and pioneer new blockchain applications that were previously unachievable.

MegaLabs has also launched the MegaMafia initiative, which aims to foster a community of builders who will work closely together to create creative decentralized applications (dApps) that leverage MegaETH’s features.
