Squads Labs, the developer of the Solana-based multisig protocol Squads, has successfully raised million in a Series A funding round. This funding round was led by Electric Capital, with participation from Coinbase Ventures, Placeholder VC, RockawayX, L1 Digital, and other investors. This latest funding brings Squads Labs’ total funding to .5 million, after raising .5 million in three separate funding rounds.

Squads has been instrumental in helping businesses manage on-chain assets such as treasury, tokens, and admin keys with multi-signature security.

Squads has also seen an increase in its client base, with the number of clients rising from just over 100 to 250.

With the fresh funding, Squads plans to enhance its protocol and support more businesses in running their on-chain workflows at every stage of the cycle. Additionally, Squads has launched its retail-oriented iOS wallet app, Fuse, on the testFlight platform. Fuse is a Solana-based wallet built on top of the Squads protocol, offering multi-signature security for personal assets.

Fuse will be available in the main app store by early July, offering users a secure and user-friendly option for storing and compounding assets.
