2. Advanced DeFi Lego

We’re looking for highly compatible DeFi legos that increase capital efficiency, provide liquidity as a service, and more.

Do apply if you’re exploring DeFi 2.0 (e.g. automaters, enhancers, extenders, derivatives), building sophisticated DeFi (e.g. lending, AMM, structured products & asset management), or developing tokenized funds & indexs.

3. Metaverse, GameFi & SocialFi

There is great potential for Metaverse, GameFi, and SocialFi, yet a lack of appropriate infrastructure and tooling projects.

We are interested in reliable and ubiquitous NFT tooling (e.g NFT Indexing), innovative NFT marketplaces, advanced GameFi infrastructure (e.g. prediction markets,GameFi asset DEX), and GameFi with sustainable tokenomics.

We are also interested in innovative dApps that redefine what social media could look like in Web3.
