Founders Taisuke Mino and Rohit Sabnis noticed that DeFi (decentralized finance) lending was growing exponentially, but lender protection was limited.
Speaking about the company and its funding, Morgan Beller, General Partner at NFX, said, “Crypto lending is growing at an incredible rate, from nominal to over $25 billion in the last year, and will only continue to explode.” With very little protection for lenders of under-collateralized loans, Carapace’s protocol will provide a key piece of the infrastructure DeFi will need to grow.
Bipin Shah, Partner at Titan Capital, said: “We invested in Rohit and Tai because they are strong founders who understand the DeFi space well. Titan wants to support crypto infrastructure projects that solve real problems for users. , and we see Carapace becoming a key cornerstone of DeFi lending.”
