Minterest Labs Investor Spotlight Series – Bitscale Capital
Investors are fundamental to Minterest’s journey and the selection process undertaken by the team was intensive. Each investor was chosen because of their track record, long-term view and value-add to the team and protocol. We thought featuring them, and providing insights into why they are so important to Minterest, would be worthwhile, and possibly valuable, for other startups in the space.
This week, Bitscale Capital is in the spotlight.
Bitscale Capital is an investment firm based in Switzerland. The team specialises in blockchain, with a portfolio of more than 80 projects. Its investment focus is varied and includes cybersecurity, blockchain startups and NFT related projects. They also have considerable expertise in scalable infrastructure.
As well as offering crucial early-stage investment and guidance, Bitscale Capital has specific expertise in investor relations, helping its portfolio companies to connect with industry heavyweights and top-tier funds across the globe.
Zurab Kazhiloti, CEO and Founder of Bitscale Capital, said,
“We invested in Minterest because we believe it is a high-quality concept that is built to last. The next generation of decentralised tech is upon us, and we expect Minterest to be in the vanguard of this new wave. The team has the experience, vision and the technical foundation to create something special which is long-lasting.”
Kyn Chaturvedi, Chief Operating Officer of Minterest, said,
“We are excited to work with Bitscale Capital as we develop out the Minterest protocol. The team’s research-led methodology and deep expertise in key sectors really attracted us to them, and we’ve quickly developed the foundation of a strong, long term relationship.”
So welcome to Minterest, in your best interest
Minterest is a unique borrowing/lending protocol built by industry leaders to service the billions in Total Value Locked (TVL), in DeFi lending projects, with the specific aim of putting user benefits at its core. It provides users with a decentralised financial platform that is fair and inclusive.
The Minterest protocol has the world’s first buyback mechanism, which automatically passes on surpluses to contributing platform users. This way, users receive rewards on top of industry leading borrowing/lending rates, creating the potential for the highest long-term yields in DeFi. The protocol also has an on-chain treasury which captures and shares liquidation surpluses with users.
