August was a down month for Boston startup funding, at least in comparison to June and July, when startups raised a total of $393 million and $418 million, respectively.

This month, more startups raised money, but at $144 million, the total funding amount was far less than the two previous months. That’s because August didn’t see any monster deals like Desktop Metal’s $115 million round in July and Cybereason’s $100 million round in June.

One important caveat to this month’s list: It includes the presale for AirFox’s Initial Coin Offering of its new cryptocurrency, so if that doesn’t count in your mind, you can subtract $6.5 million from the full $144 million figure. At the same time, it could be a sign of how more startups plan to raise money in the future (unless the crypto bubble bursts).

Here are the 30 startups that raised $144 million in August:

• AirFox, which aims to make the mobile Internet more accessible through its new cryptocurrency, raised $6.5 million as part of the pre-sale for its Initial Coin Offering, which is basically a crowdsale done through a cyrptocurrency.
