斯坦福大学(Stanford)基金投资被誉为“区块链微软”的区块链初创公司

2019-12-18 14:24

区块链基础设施初创公司Alchemy已经获得了包括斯坦福大学在内的多个著名主流实体的投资,以及其他顶级企业的领导人的投资。


据彭博社12月17日报道,专注于为开发者提供区块链基础设施和其他工具的初创公司Alchemy已经从一些有影响力的主流商业领袖那里获得了1500万美元的捐款,其中包括雅虎的联合创始人杨致远(Jerry Yang)和领英(LinkedIn)的联合创始人雷德·霍夫曼(Reid Hoffman)。


Cointelegraph联系了斯坦福大学和炼金术学院,但截至发稿时,没有收到任何回复。


彭博还指出,金融巨头嘉信理财(Charles Schwab)将投资炼金术作为A轮融资的一部分。


Alchemy加入了许多其他实体公司的行列,他们希望帮助有兴趣的团体使用区块链技术,比如Amazon Web Services (AWS)和Oracle。


Alchemy的两位联合创始人Nikil Viswanathan和Joe Lau是斯坦福校友,他们对区块链项目的采用抱有很高的期望。


Viswanathan告诉彭博社:“我们想成为区块链的微软。”


回顾过去的几十年,刘德华提到了在这项技术的早期缺乏计算机的使用,并将这种情况与目前的区块链技术进行了比较。


“在70年代和80年代,只有研究人员使用计算机,而今天每个人都使用计算机,”刘炽平向彭博社解释说。


几个月前,Cointelegraph还报道了另一次斯坦福校友聚会,他们建立了一个利用智能手机进行加密的网络。截至9月17日,该网络已经召集了50多万名参与者。

 

Blockchain infrastructure startup Alchemy has garnered investments from multiple notable mainstream entities, including Stanford University, as well as leaders from other top businesses.

Alchemy, a startup focused on providing blockchain infrastructure, as well as other tools for developers, has amassed $15 million in contributions from influential mainstream business leaders, such as Yahoo’s co-founder Jerry Yang and LinkedIn’s co-founder Reid Hoffman, Bloomberg reported on Dec. 17. 

Cointelegraph reached out to Stanford and Alchemy, but received no responses as of press time. 

Bloomberg also noted financial powerhouse Charles Schwab’s place on the list of entities investing in Alchemy as part of its Series A financing. 

Alchemy joins a number of other brick and mortar companies looking to help outfit interested parties with blockchain technology, such as Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Oracle

Stanford alumni Nikil Viswanathan and Joe Lau, Alchemy’s two co-founders, have high hopes for their blockchain project in terms of adoption. 

Viswanathan told Bloomberg:

“We want to be the Microsoft for blockchain.”

Pointing back several decades, Lau mentioned the lack of computer usage seen during the technology’s early days, comparing the situation to that of blockchain technology at present.

“In the ’70s and ’80s only researchers used computers and today everyone uses a computer,” Lau explained to Bloomberg. 

Several months ago, Cointelegraph also reported on a separate gathering of Stanford alumni who built a crypto network harnessing smartphones. The network had rallied over 500,000 participants as of the Sept. 17 brief.
