Cayman Islands, Cayman Islands, December 5th, 2023, Chainwire — Curvance introduces a new, efficient approach for users to yield farm and maximize yield on their DeFi investments
Curvance, a full-service omnichain money market for yield-bearing, LSDfi, tokenized treasuries, and primitive assets, announces the close of a $3.6M seed round supported by Offchain Labs, Wormhole, prominent angel investors including Polygon Co-Founder Sandeep Nailwal, and core contributors from Scroll, Mantle, Eigenlayer, GMX, Curve Finance, Convex Finance, Balancer, Aura Finance, and Pendle Finance. Decentralized Autonomous Organizations (DAOs) such as Frax Finance and others also contributed to the round.
Founded in 2022, Curvance is the “everything app” for lending and borrowing, providing decentralized finance (DeFi) users with an all-encompassing way to manage any of their assets, eliminating fragmentation and barriers to entry in the ecosystem.
“Curvance will give users of any blockchain an easy route to participate in Polygon DeFi, with the potential to make onboarding easier than ever. As DeFi on Polygon zkEVM and Polygon CDK continue to gain momentum, reducing friction into DeFi opportunities is more powerful than ever,” says Sandeep Nailwal from Polygon.
By tapping into omnichain infrastructure, Curvance is able to support Ethereum, as well as numerous partner chains simultaneously such as Arbitrum, Optimism, Scroll, Base, and Polygon zkEVM. Curvance’s cross-functional omnichain design unlocks capital efficiency not possible prior, working in tandem with Decentralized Exchanges (DEXs) like Curve, Balancer, Velodrome, GMX, Pendle, and other assets such as Liquid Staking Derivatives (LSDs).
“With this funding round, Curvance will be able to expand on its value proposition of bringing forward a more approachable money market experience for both DeFi newcomers and experienced yield farmers and traders alike “ says Curvance Co-Founder, Chris Carapola. “We are excited to have attracted a group of investors who bring incredible experience and are ready to work with us toward our shared vision.”
Carapola says the raised capital will be used to continue Curvance’s operations costs, support continued security audits, as well as maintain and hire more in-house talent for the project.
“When we started looking for funding, we chose to talk to our partners first, instead of just going to venture capital firms,” commented Curvance Co-Founder Michael Butcher. “This way, we ended up with a group of investors who care about our long-term success. We’re happy with how it turned out and can’t wait to launch Curvance on testnet soon.”
Curvance is a full-service omnichain money market for yield-bearing assets. Users can collateralize, leverage, and boost asset rewards across DeFi, with optimal efficiency, and consolidate DeFi yield across various assets such as AMM LPs, Perpetual Exchange LPs, interest-bearing stablecoins, and more, in one user interface.
