Most companies in Web3 struggle to make data-driven decisions to drive growth. Helika’s no-code platform with integrated in-game, on-chain and social media analytics allows companies to understand their user’s behavior and interactions to increase engagement, retention, user acquisition, and make better strategic decisions. The platform offers a suite of powerful products allowing Helika clients such as Yuga Labs and Treasure to gather sales and royalty data, analyze user wallet activity, onboard new users, and determine optimal mint pricing for future NFT drops.
“We are thrilled to have the support of such a strong group of investors as we continue to build out our platform and expand our data sources,” said Anton Umnov, Founder and CEO of Helika. “This funding round will enable us to grow our team, improve our product, connect more sources of data from other blockchains, and continue to gather insights to share with the Web3 community.”
