DeFiHelper Secures $500,000 In Its Pre-Seed Investment Round
DeFiHelper, an investment tool that helps investors of any scale to easily manage and automate their DeFi investments across 300+ protocols, closed its $500,000 Pre-Seed funding round — just two months after its public launch. The round was led by Big Brain Holdings with other participants including 6K Starter, CryptoOMG Capital, and a number of business angels.
DeFiHelper is an advanced non-custodial decentralized assistant for managing and automating DeFi portfolios of any size. Its core product functions include no-code automation, auto-staking, portfolio tracking and notifications. The product was launched into public beta in late December 2021.
The Founder and the CEO of DeFiHelper is Vladislav Komissarov, who has about 20 years of experience as a developer and technical director in many IT projects. The R&D team is led by Ilya Munerman, who has a PHD in economics, and is a lecturer at the New Economic School and HSE University.
“Crypto is growing at an explosive pace. Globally, the total number of crypto users is approaching 300 million people. The total user base of DeFi skyrocketed from 100,000 to 4,500,000 users in just two years. Despite its exponential growth, the market is still deprived of sophisticated non-custodial tools for managing and automating DeFi portfolios. All available apps have limited functionality and steep entry barriers, even for the people who have some experience with crypto. Our goal is to change this situation and create an app, which will be as easy and intuitive as the best-in-class bank and brokerage mobile apps.” says Vladislav Komissarov, the Founder of DeFiHelper.
