The 6th edition of the CV VC Top 50 Report was published today.
This is a report compiled by CV VC in collaboration with PwC on the blockchain sector in the Crypto Valley of Switzerland and Liechtenstein.
The CV VC Top 50 highlights the impact of the Crypto Valley on the Swiss economy and job market and shows the growth of the crypto and blockchain space by highlighting the top 50 companies in terms of funding, valuation and employees.
Eidoo is part of this select elite, and is in fact recognized as one of the top 50 blockchain finance companies in Crypto Valley.
The 55-page report looks at the second half of 2020 in particular, and lists 960 companies in the so-called ‘Crypto Valley’, where more than 5,000 people now work.
Of these, the top 50 were selected, which have a total valuation of more than $254 billion and have been able to raise more than $3.7 billion in funding.
In the previous report this total valuation was only $37.5 billion, so the increase was as much as 680%.
