Celestia raises $55 million to make blockchain deployment easy

FTX Ventures and Jump Crypto were also involved.

Celestia was valued at $1 billion after the combined funding round was four times oversubscribed.

Celestia will use the funds to build its modular network, which allows anyone to easily deploy their own blockchain.
