The Californer/10261184

SF and Toronto ~ Uniblock, a San Francisco and Toronto-based startup that is revolutionizing the way developers build on the blockchain, has announced a successful funding round of $2.3 million. The round was backed by Cadenza, Blockchain Founders Fund, Side Door Ventures, AQN, Serafund, Outsider Ventures and other investors.

Uniblock's mission is to become the go-to platform for companies looking to build on the blockchain. Currently, blockchain development is fragmented and inefficient due to the time and expense involved in maintaining multiple Web3 integrations. Uniblock seeks to unify this scattered market by connecting top blockchain tools such as Alchemy, thirdweb, Moralis, Parsiq, Covalent and QuickNode into one easy-to-use platform. This funding will enable Uniblock to accelerate the development of its Unified Web3 API platform which will integrate hundreds of Web3 connections and endpoints into one tool for faster and more scalable blockchain development.

The company was co-founded by Kevin Callahan (CEO), David Liu (CTO) and James Liu (VP Eng). Kevin has a background in Product and Partnerships from his time at Coinbase and Twitter as well as being an adjunct professor in Product Management at Toronto Metropolitan University (TMU) and an Entrepreneur-in-Residence at Ivey School of Business. David is previously the co-founder of ANIFTY, an anime NFT marketplace that was acquired, as well as being an adjunct lecturer of blockchain at the University of Toronto. James was a lead engineer at ANIFTY and a lead blockchain developer on several Web3 projects with a degree in statistical machine learning and artificial intelligence from the University of Toronto.
