After mapping the Web3.0/Blockchain innovation stack we continue to double down on the sector and are proud to publish the first map of Israeli companies operating in this space.

As a reminder, when we analyzed the innovation stack we divided it into several layers: the infrastructure layer, the application layer, an “in-between” enabler layer, and a vertical application layer that includes solutions that use blockchain technology targeting a specific industry or vertical.

Currently there are around 100 Israeli startups operating in the Web3.0/blockchain space. As evident in the map below, the ecosystem is pretty diversified.

Not surprisingly, DeFi<>CeFi and Security & Compliance have a robust representation.

We note that many companies fall into several categories, so we had to pick the one we thought was the best fit. In addition, we classified companies targeting a specific vertical, such as gaming, under vertical applications, even though they may operate within a defined category, such as NFT.

(Important to note that 15-20 companies are still operating in stealth mode and are excluded of our map)
