According to the latest reports, INstaDapp is a startup that aims to build something that it calls the “middleware” layer for the DeFi space. This firm managed to raise $10 million in new funding.
The Block Crytpo just noted that the pool of investors included the DeFi Alliance, Longhash Ventures, along with developer and Yearn founder Andre Cronje.
“The funding news comes more than a year and a half after InstaDApp raised a $2.4 million seed round from a group that included Coinbase Ventures, Naval Ravikant and Pantera Capital,” the online publication noted.
The same online publication notes that in an email, co-founder Sowmay Jain told The Block that the funding will be used to “complete our transition into the middleware layer for DeFi and support the ecosystem project building on top of Instadapp Protocol.”
The blog post notes that “At launch, the core team will be handing over the management of the protocol to the DAO. We believe it is crucial that we allow the community to self-govern, and the team will focus on building essential extensions and growing the protocol ecosystem,” the team said at the time.”
