Three Arrows Capital CEO Su Zhu tells his 456,400 followers about the fundraising round on Twitter, revealing that the cryptocurrency hedge fund led the private token sale.

The Near protocol is a proof-of-stake blockchain and decentralized application platform that uses sharding technology. The Ethereum rival is a newcomer in the crypto space, but investors and analysts alike have bullish outlooks for the crypto asset.
According to Su, macro investors are holding on to the cryptocurrency even as they exit their other positions amid the market correction. Meanwhile, pseudonymous crypto analyst Cantering Clark says that the altcoin may rise above $20 and even climb to $50.
At time of writing, NEAR is trading at $19.32.
