The Ethereum firm Aligned Layer has secured a venture capital investment of $2.6 million. As of Sunday, April 14, the startup known as Aligned Layer, which is promoting itself as a 'universal verification layer for Ethereum,' has declared that it has successfully received $2.6 million in seed funding.

It was led by Lemniscap, a company that has been around for seven years and has supported a number of startups operating in the cryptocurrency blockchain field. Previously, the company was the driving force behind the $2.4 million fundraising round the web3 startup Safary received in January.
