“This round illustrates a high degree of confidence in our project from the crypto community, and validates our vision for Cryption Network and DeFi moving forwards,” said CEO Tejas Chitnis.
“We are humbled to have received such unprecedented demand from investors and support for the ecosystem.”
Cryption Network offers a suite of products for retail investors who are alienated by the complexity and volatility of the crypto market, as well as the pain points of decentralized finance.
An integrated ecosystem with a focus on layer-2, Cryption’s products include PolyDEX – L2 Swap, Elastic Farming, and a Seer-Prediction Market, as well as its own mobile application on iOS and Android. Cryption also supports NFTs.
Through its dedicated network, the platform enables Ethereum users to utilize diverse defi primitives launched on the Polygon blockchain. As such, users can benefit from innovative solutions and products without actually migrating blockchains.
This will enable innovators and developers to participate in open innovation from anywhere, without having to endure high network congestion and excessive fees.
The Cryption app functions as a digital wallet and dApp browser for both Ethereum and Polygon, and has been designed to ensure smooth onboarding for new users. To this end, Cryption will eliminate gas fees altogether, enabling users to use blockchain apps without worrying about cost.
