The number of rounds raised this month was relatively even across all sectors, with CeFi, DeFi and NFT/GameFi each accounting for about 20% of the total. CeFi raised the most because of the number of institutions that raised debt to avoid liquidation, such as BlockFi, which raised $250m from FTX, and Voyager Digital, which raised $200m from Alameda.

Total funding for the month was $3.67 billion, down 18% from May 2022 ($4.45 billion) and up 60% from June 2021 ($2.3 billion). The top 10 financing rounds(excludeCeFi) are as follows:
