AU21 and Dot.Finance Enter Strategic Partnership to Grow the Polkadot Network and Polkadot-Based DeFi Solutions
AU21 and Dot.Finance are proud to announce a strategic partnership that will combine AU21’s resources and strategic guidance with the advanced suite of DeFi investment products being built by Dot.Finance on the Polkadot blockchain.
AU21 Capital was founded in 2017 with the mission of backing the most promising blockchain entrepreneurs and providing them and their teams with the resources and connections needed to succeed. With a renowned track record of early-stage investment in some of the most recognizable names in the blockchain and cryptocurrency spaces such as Ethereum, ETC, Metaverse, NEO, Qtum, Binance, and Huobi, AU21 is uniquely positioned to help innovative new projects grow and reach critical mass.
Dot.Finance is a new DeFi platform that was designed to promote the growth of the Polkadot system. With a suite of highly performant and easy-to-use investment tools, Dot.Finance is helping to grow the Polkadot ecosystem and will help new and existing DeFi investors leverage the many benefits of the Polkadot framework.
Polkadot has proven to be a real contender for the next generation of blockchains, and numerous projects have committed to building on it. Thanks to its built-in security, flexibility, and interoperability, it has grown significantly over the last year and DOT, the native token of Polkadot, is currently a top-10 crypto-asset based on market capitalization.
While many notable DeFi products exist on the Ethereum blockchain and Binance Smart Chain, Polkadot was designed from the ground up as a superior blockchain alternative. The Polkadot protocol was designed to connect multiple specialized blockchains into a unified network and it can be used to help blockchain-based systems overcome numerous long-standing problems. These include the interoperability problem, which Polkadot overcomes by uniting isolated blockchains, and the bottleneck problem, which Polkadot overcomes by supporting parallel chain processing.
Over the last year or so, the world witnessed an explosion of interest in the DeFi capabilities of blockchain-powered systems. Cryptocurrency staking, yield farming, and liquidity pools are some of the highly innovative ways that blockchain-based financial services solutions help businesses, private individuals, and institutional players smartly and efficiently deploy their crypto assets to generate returns.
Dot.Finance follows investment strategies similar to the successful strategies implemented by various projects and decentralized exchanges on Ethereum and Binance Smart Chain, but it focuses on growing the Polkadot ecosystem by deploying effective and efficient DeFi products built for Polkadot.
The Dot.Finance team predicts a new influx of users and projects joining the Polkadot network for better, faster, lower-cost, and more performant DeFi services and architecture. As the DeFi space continues to grow and as more and more people search for fast, resilient, low-cost opportunities for investment, Dot.Finance’s Polkadot-based DeFi suite has the potential to emerge as a front runner.
