The round was led by First Analysis with participation from Elevate Ventures, SmoothBrain, VisionTech Partners, and other seed investors

INDIANAPOLIS and PARIS, Aug. 8, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stamus Networks, the global leader of Suricata-based network security, today announced it has closed a $6 million series A round of funding. The round was led by First Analysis, a Chicago-based venture capital firm renowned for supporting emerging B2B technology companies, with participation from new investor SmoothBrain. In addition, existing seed stage investors Elevate Ventures and VisionTech Partners also participated in the round.

This investment further cements the company’s position as an innovator of enterprise class, Suricata-based threat detection and response systems that deliver effective results by integrating modern machine learning with traditional detection mechanisms from intrusion detection (IDS) and network security monitoring (NSM) systems. Focused on elite cyber defenders who require details, control, and transparency, Stamus Networks provides a powerful alternative to both legacy systems and the heavily-hyped artificial intelligence (AI) products that simply trigger a warning with no explanatory context or evidence.

“We were impressed by the conversations we had with Stamus Networks’ sophisticated enterprise customers. Each praised the comprehensive, transparent, and granular evidence delivered with detections triggered by the Stamus Security Platform,” said Howard Smith, Managing Director at First Analysis. “The customers also applauded the company’s exceptional customer support. We look forward to helping scale the organization for breakout growth in this exciting market.”

The company will use the funds to advance product innovation, elevate customer experience, and effectively scale go-to-market resources and programs.

“We are excited to partner with First Analysis and SmoothBrain and are grateful for the confidence they and our existing investors have placed in us,” said Ken Gramley, CEO of Stamus Networks. “The funds will enable us to expand our market reach and accelerate our research and development, bolstering our position as the leader of Suricata-based network security for enterprises. Ultimately, it will help us keep more of the most targeted organizations in the world secure,” Gramley continued.

This week, the Stamus Networks team is exhibiting at Black Hat USA in Las Vegas where they will be demonstrating the Stamus Security Platform and meeting with customers and prospective customers in booth 2716D.

Squad Labs announced that its Series A funding round, led by Electric Capital with participation from RockawayX, Coinbase Ventures, L1D, Placeholder, and Mert Mumtaz, will propel the launch of its Fuse smart wallet. The company aims to establish Fuse as a premier solution for securing and compounding personal digital wealth amid the growing onchain economy.

According to the company’s news release on June 12, smart accounts and smart wallets are gaining traction across blockchains as they offer a more intuitive, secure, and programmable user experience. Fuse abstracts seed phrases and provides features like wallet recovery, 2FA capabilities, and enterprise-level security for personal custody, simplifying the choice of storing digital wealth on-chain.

In addition to securing funding, Squad Labs also announced the public testing launch of Fuse on iOS. This move is part of their strategy to expand accessibility and refine functionality ahead of a full market release.

Meanwhile, a recent report from PYMNTS Intelligence explores blockchain’s role in enhancing cross-border payments. It suggests that integrating blockchain can streamline payment processing, enable digital-to-fiat currency conversion, and introduce stablecoins for faster and cost-effective cross-border transactions. Business-friendly decentralized finance (DeFi) solutions further automate and secure transactions via smart contracts, reducing dependence on traditional payment systems and enhancing security and transparency.

TON Blockchain Surpasses Ethereum in Daily Active Users

Published

on

ton-blockchain-surpasses-ethereum-in-daily-active-users

Ethereum’s comparative underperformance relative to TON can be attributed to several factors, notably the migration of a significant portion of its user activity to layer 2 scaling solutions. These solutions were not factored into the comparison with TON.

During a week marked by global crypto market fluctuations and cautious investor sentiment, The Open Network (TON), backed by Telegram, has seen substantial growth in user activity, surpassing Ethereum in daily active users.

Since the beginning of the month, TON and Ethereum have been closely vying for user engagement. However, leveraging Telegram’s extensive user base of 900 million, TON has consistently outpaced Ethereum for ten consecutive days starting June 1.

On June 3, TON achieved a significant milestone with 568,300 daily active addresses (DAAs), according to Artemis data. In contrast, Ethereum has not reached this level of activity since September 13, 2023.

Delving Deeper
Ethereum’s apparent lower activity compared to TON can be attributed to various factors, including the adoption of layer 2 scaling solutions designed to enhance transaction throughput and reduce fees by processing transactions off the main Ethereum blockchain.

Consequently, the majority of Ethereum’s transactional activities have shifted to these layer 2 networks.

For instance, on June 11, the top three Ethereum layer 2 networks—Arbitrum, Base, and Optimism—collectively registered 1.3 million daily active addresses. This highlights that while Ethereum’s primary network may appear less active, substantial transactional volume is occurring on these secondary layers.

New Milestones and Market Performance
Despite the challenges of comparing directly with Ethereum, TON has demonstrated significant growth. Amidst the recent global market volatility, the network’s native token, Toncoin (TON), reached a milestone of $7.76 earlier this month, marking its highest valuation since launch.

Although Toncoin has since experienced a decline of over 12%, industry analysts remain optimistic about its future trajectory.

A pseudonymous analyst, “Crypto King,” has forecasted a potential rise to $10 for TON in the near term, citing its robust user base, rapid infrastructure development, and Telegram’s support.

Another expert, Alex Clay, shares this positive outlook, suggesting short-term price targets of $10.5 to $11.6 for TON despite broader market downturns.

Furthermore, data from Token Terminal indicates promising long-term indicators for TON, showing a 3.6% rise in fully diluted market capitalization, a 76.3% increase in token holders, and a 26.0% growth in revenue and fees over the past 30 days.

Despite a slight decrease in trading volume by 11.6%, these metrics underline a strong underlying growth trend for TON.
