Cryptocurrency exchange Okcoin has announced a $165M fund to support solutions for the acceleration of Bitcoin adoption. 

Dubbed the “Bitcoin Odyssey,” the pledge, in partnership with Stacks Accelerator and Stacks Foundation, will allocate capital and resources towards projects being built on Stacks. According to the March 10 press release, the group will focus on projects with solutions across Web3. This would include the metaverseblockchain gamingDeFiNFTs, and DAOs, among others. 

“Bitcoin Odyssey is recalibrating capital and resources back to the foundation of cryptocurrency, and that starts with Bitcoin and Stacks,” ​​noted Alex Chizhik, Head of Listings at Okcoin and Co-Chair of Bitcoin Odyssey in the release. ​​The initiative is in “response to both an influx of investor interest in decentralized finance (DeFi) and new technological capabilities.”


The partnership includes firms like the Digital Currency Group, GSR, White Star Capital, A41 Ventures, Alumni Venture Group, Blockdream, Cosimo VEntures, DeSpread, Ediums Capital, GBV Capital, Gossamer Capital, GSR, Nesho ENterprises, NOIA Capital, Stardust Ventures, Unmutable Ventures, and Westridge Markets. 

Chizhik added: “there is still a lot of work to be done for digital assets to be adopted globally in meaningful ways. As the only currency that is truly decentralized, we believe bitcoin should remain at the epicenter for crypto adoption.”
