About Financing

Founded in late 2017, Horizon offers products to troubleshoot Web3 and unlock the utility. Driving Web3 adoption at scale, the company’s Series A Funding round was led by leading names in the tech industry, including Brevan Howard Digital, Brevan Howard’s private crypto and digital asset division, and Morgan Creek Digital, a venture capital firm focused on blockchain technology investments.

Horizon will use the funding to grow Sequence, an easy-to-use creation tool for developers without web3 experience. They will also work to update the Skyweaver game, where players battle against opponents using fantasy trading cards. Currently, over 400,000 accounts have been created on Skyweaver. Horizon also announced Niftyswap, a new decentralized market place for Web3 collections. Series A funding will be used to develop the three projects mentioned above and grow the Horizon team.

Commenting on the funding round, Co-Founder and CEO Peter Kieltyka said; “We have always had a long-term vision for the future of Web3 and we are carefully creating complementary products to support the ecosystem. With Sequence, we enable builders to create next-generation Internet experiences; with Skyweaver, we provide a fun, strategic and rich piece of content for gamers to enjoy; and with Niftyswap, we enable the seamless exchange of SFTS that are poised to become the most useful and tradable virtual products in the world.”
