However, one particular trailblazer, Magic Labs, stole the spotlight by securing $52 million during a key investment phase.

Among Magic Labs' impressive clientele is retail giant Macy's, as well as the iconic toy brand Mattel, which utilizes Magic as its preferred wallet service provider for operating a peer-to-peer NFT marketplace dedicated to virtual collectibles.
Alan Du, a prominent figure at PayPal Ventures, commended Magic Labs for offering a "secure and user-friendly option" that has the potential to drive widespread adoption of Web3. The company has achieved remarkable success thus far, with over 20 million distinct wallets created, according to its disclosure.
In addition to Magic Labs' funding, Transak, a fiat-crypto bridge provider, secured $20 million in investment. The funding round attracted prominent investors like Animoca Brands and Axelar. Transak's platform is reputedly accepted in over 150 countries and supports more than 160 cryptocurrencies, according to the company's statement.
