Announced Thursday, Cozy Finance has raised a $2 million seed round, led by Electric Capital and including Variant Fund, Dragonfly Capital, Robot Ventures, Slow Ventures, Volt Capital, Spencer Noon, Moncada and others.
The team attempting to bring some order to the creative chaos that is DeFi consists of Cozy co-founders Tony Sheng, formerly of Multicoin Capital, and Payom Dousti, co-founder of Rare Bits, a peer-to-peer marketplace for crypto goods.
The value of assets deposited in Ethereum-based DeFi dapps from $1 billion to over $8 billion in the span of six months. Developers have unlocked massive value for crypto investors by creating useful ways for them to manage their assets. However, these users face new forms of risk, like irreversible technical vulnerabilities.
