According to Luis Carchi, the CTO of Shield, Web3 security is multifaceted and requires the implementation of multiple products to ensure that businesses are protected. Carchi mentioned that they are not aiming to be “the Chrome extension” or “the Discord bot” but are thinking about this from a full-stack point of view, being as holistic as possible. Shield aims to build an industry standard for Web3 businesses to operate securely.

Shield has already amassed over 350,000 users and has clients including Fox Sports, Rarible, and Guild.xyz. With the funding, Shield plans to build out its engineering team and devote resources to research and development, given that Web3 technology and scammers become more advanced.
