Zerion, an interface solution for accessing decentralized finance protocols to invest, earn interest and borrow crypto assets, announced today it has raised $2 million in a seed round.
The funding was led by Placeholder with participation also coming from Blockchain Ventures and Gnosis.
Zerion aims to build an integrated experience that overcomes the fragmentation, complexity, and lack of trust in decentralized financial products. The team believes that these issues have held back the adoption of DeFi.
The Zerion platform enables non-technical users to acquire, track and manage assets on many leading DeFi protocols, including MakerDAO, Compound, Uniswap, Set, and Fulcrum.
“We are thrilled to find partners that share our vision and bring years of experience that will help us grow the company. Joining the DeFi movement around a year ago was a big decision for our team. DeFi was a breeze of fresh air: it was something we had been waiting for since Ethereum came out. I am glad we persisted through the tough times and focused solely on innovating in DeFi. We are grateful for the community’s continued support and excited to lead the way in the adoption of a programmable and global financial system.”
