With all the volatility out there in the Crypto universe nowadays, and then the news this week that DAO is considering de-pegging from the US Dollar over the next 3 years in an effort to protect itself from regulation … it’s good to know there is a stablecoin that is determined to stick to the USD like glue.
Hubble’s fundraising efforts are showing good fruit – 15 million smackeroos so far. And they also seem to have a bunch of great backers, I’ll say.
Not bad at all for a MakerDAO wannabe-hopeful!
MultiCoin Capital Helps Raise Funds In Strategic Round
Hubble Protocol, a Solana-based platform for borrowing stablecoins, raised $5 million in a strategic round led by Multicoin Capital, the business said on Thursday.
Previous investors DeFiance Capital, Delphi Digital, Digital Currency Group, Crypto.com Capital, ParaFi, Jump Capital, Decentral Park Capital, CMS, Spartan Group, DeFi Alliance, and Mechanism Capital also participated in the round. The company declined to share a valuation.
With this most recent round, the procedure has now received $15 million in funding overall. When it officially began in January of this year, it raised its first round.
Hubble wants to build a MakerDAO-like system on the Solana platform using the DeFi protocol and a stablecoin pegged to the US dollar. Hubble users can borrow and manufacture USDH, Hubble’s native stablecoin, in contrast to MakerDAO, an early Ethereum-based DeFi system that enables users to trade its native stablecoin, DAI.
Kamino Finance, a concentrated liquidity optimizer, is one of its products. It will make it possible for liquidity providers to borrow USDH using LP tokens as collateral, which can subsequently be utilized to conduct transactions or increase yield throughout the Solana DeFi ecosystem. Currently, Orca, Raydium, Saber, and Mercurial all support USDH.
Spencer Applebaum, principal at Multicoin Capital, said:
“There are only a few ways to safely build a decentralized stablecoin, and Hubble’s over-collateralization approach has been tested through all market conditions.”
