Kindred Ventures, South Park Commons, and Script Capital led a $3.3 million pre-seed fundraising round for Web3 Social Wallet Tribes, a newly launched Web3-native chat, and group wallet software.
Tribes founder and CEO Hish Bouabdallah told CoinDesk during an interview that the financing was completed in October, putting the round deep into a crypto bear market that put pressure on the investment environment but ahead of the industry-shaking implosion of centralized exchange FTX. In the post-FTX investment climate, improving Web3 infrastructure to attract more Web2 natives and general users has emerged as a critical goal.
“Web3 primitives for co-ownership and collective action are transformative,” Bouabdallah said in a statement. “In order to fulfill Web3’s full potential, collaborative action must be perfected. “By embedding it directly into group chat, we make these powerful and newly available Web3 activities intelligible and accessible to the public.”
Tribes group wallets enable people to co-own and manage digital assets while talking directly through the wallet rather than using an external messaging service like Discord or Twitter. Decentralized autonomous organizations (DAOs) – token-gated groups organized around a shared objective – or something as simple as family members seeking to contribute to joint property ownership are among the use cases. Wallets can transfer, receive, and keep digital assets such as non-fungible tokens (NFTs), memberships, and currencies, and sending or spending assets from the group requires approval from the entire group.
Tribes app users connect through their Coinbase Wallet, which is available in the Apple and Google app stores. Bouabdallah formerly worked as an engineer at Coinbase on the development of the exchange’s wallet feature.
