In clarification of relation between the Sia Foundation and Skynet it is noted that, formerly known firm Nebulous, raised $3 million in a funding round by crypto investment firm Paradigm in 2020.
In addition, the CEO of Skynet, David Vorick, wrote in the blog post that, “It is with regret that we announce Skynet Labs has been unable to complete its next round of fundraising and will be shutting down. Thankfully, Skynet as a platform will be able to continue operating: all user files will remain online and key portions of the infrastructure will continue to be actively developed.”
Vorick also shared that the blockchain firm will cut jobs. In which he added that, “Much of what Skynet has accomplished, including its ability to continue operating in the face of Skynet Lab’s dissolution, and including its ability to provide value to the wider web3 ecosystem, is owed to the efforts and contributions of the Skynet Labs team members.”
On his Twitter account, Vorick shared “Not the outcome we wanted, but not the end of the road for Skynet either.”
