We are thrilled to announce that Kasuria has become the most recent addition to our investment track record. Kasuria provides investors access to a wide range of proven financial metrics and DeFi data. The company’s goal is to help its customers make informed decisions in the fast-growing DeFi-ecosystem.
Why we invested in Kasuria
Over the past few years, the awareness and use of cryptocurrencies and DeFi have grown exponentially. The total value locked (TVL) of all DeFi protocols exceeds $250 billion in December 2021, compared to early 2020 when it was below $1 billion, thanks to the booming of diverse DeFi services: yield farming, DeFi lending, borrowing, and trading.
Even though DeFi has started to reshape global finance and change the existing business models in finance, this asset category remains mysterious to many investors. The highly volatile nature, technical risks and complexity, and regulatory uncertainty have made it difficult for investors to enter the space.
Kasuria’s mission to “de-complex” DeFi
Kasuria has made it its mission to enable and facilitate the professional investors' journeys in the DeFi space by providing institutional-grade data and intelligence for research and reporting.
Based on each customers’ strategy, Kasuria will allow a way for users to navigate the complex structure of DeFi. This would help the user in selecting, comparing, and following up on the best investment opportunities.
Here is how Kasuria will help investors make better DeFi investment decisions:
Kasuria allows investors to assess and understand DeFi and especially its multi-hop strategies across various smart contracts in depth without having to spend additional resources for research purposes.
Kasuria produces well-known financial investment metrics as well as DeFi-specific data in an aggregated view that allows for comparison and portfolio benchmarking.
In essence, Kasuria provides the DaaS middleware that connects, reads, and interprets raw blockchain transaction data across protocols and chains. The high-quality enterprise-grade data in an auditable format can be used for various business applications, e.g. risk models, portfolio management, treasuries, datastream services, or internal/external reporting.
