A blockchain firm dedicated to supporting R&D for hi-tech projects is entering the DeFi space with its own decentralized exchang and it is hot on the heels of launching its crypto-powered crowdfunding platform in May.
Supporting start-ups focused on technology, innovation and sustainability, is the core of Tecra Space crowdfunding platform.

Tecra has gained financial support — and credibility — from the EU’s Smart Growth Programme and Poland’s National Centre for Research and Development, as well as winning the Startup Grand Slam at the 2019 World Blockchain Summit Taipei. It was also a Singularity University finalist for the 10 best startups in Eastern Europe, awarded on Google Campus in Warsaw.

To earn a spot on Tecra Space, projects must gain the support of the Tecra community and pass an expert evaluation. The first to do so is Expanse Plus, a
