On deBridge, Wayne said,
Our team has liked the way deBridge is positioned through its technical structure, since the product is designed to be an experiential platform rather than merely a tool. While solutions continue to surge in the market to deal with fragmentation of multi-chain liquidity, we believe it is more important to get the product out there to be used, tested, and thus proven. As we have “bridged” deBridge with different portfolio projects, we have gathered positive feedback and expectation of adoption, exactly the answer we seek for the foreseeable future.
deBridge co-founder, Alex Smirnov said,
Our team has collaborated with Wayne and the Axia8 Ventures team and we have been impressed by their enthusiasm and ambition. We couldn’t be happier that they’ve opted to become a part of the deBridge ecosystem. During our initial conversation, we quickly realised their experience and the goals they are focused on. In addition to asking the right questions, they made some astute insights and input regarding the future of the multi-chain ecosystem.
