SMARTCHAIN DEFI Announces $28M in Financing from Tether Strategic Investment at a valuation of $300 million for the Launch of New Stablecoin DEFI Product

Tether Operations Limited (hereinafter referred to as “Tether”) is a blockchain-backed company. Driving stablecoin (USDT) with the biggest market cap, the company has launched the Tether Token (“USDt”) DEFI product on SMARTCHAIN DEFI, a global financial and commercial decentralized smart contract platform for stablecoin built for scale.

SMART CHAIN DEFI is a one-stop LaaS DeFi protocol of BNB CHAIN (formerly BINANCE SMART CHAIN), which was invested by BINANCE 1 billion growth fund in angel round. This financing follows $16 million in Series A financing led by BINANCE LABS. The company is currently valued at $300 million, although it has not disclosed the stakes of investors in the first two piece of financing. However, according to a conservative estimate by Ross Sandler, an analyst at Bank of Barclays (Barclays, LSE: BARC, NYSE: BCS),the current valuation of the company has grown at More than 10 times compared with the valuation of the angel round of financing invested by the BINANCE 1 billion fund in the early days of its establishment, which can also reflect others’ optimism about the future growth of the blockchain startup.

SMARTCHAIN DEFI raises $28M to launch new Stablecoin product.

$28 million raised by SMARTCHAIN DEFI in this Series will support liquidity provision in the form of DEFI fund and plans to create new liquidity pools to incentivize liquidity providers in the short term.

New liquidity pools on SMARTCHAIN DEFI will allow the introduction of a unique price limit feature that guarantees no slippage and cheaper transaction fees to reduce the impact of liquidity shortages in the cryptocurrency market on the yields of large liquidity providers for stablecoins (USDT).

“SMARTCHAIN DEFI will launch its new USDT DEFI product, providing its ever-growing and vibrant community with the most liquid, stable and trusted stablecoins access to the digital token space,” said Paolo Ardoino, Tether’s CTO, “For those who believe in Layer-1 blockchain development, SMARTCHAIN DEFI represents an evolutionary project with BNB Chain VM compatibility. But it could be a significant driver for participants looking to move away from dApps with stablecoins as the underlying investment. ”

Paolo Ardoino added, “regardless of market conditions, there are always good teams with good products at the right time. A crisis is the best time to invest, not a bull market.”

“USDT serves an important part of DeFi users on SMARTCHAIN DEFI,” said Emin Sirer, Director of the SMARTCHAIN DEFI Foundation, “Tether has become a widely accepted, time-tested USDT with broad support across the blockchain ecosystem. With SMARTCHAIN DEFI as an application landing, it will be even stronger.”

At a time when the company is focusing on DeFi, the overall value of the industry has fallen by more than half from its peak. According to industry data, the DeFi industry is now worth just under $133 billion as measured by total locked-in value, or TVL. DeFi TVL peaked at $316 billion in December 2021.

The current woes DeFi suffers are a symptom of the so-called crypto winter that has swept through the market since early 2022. Analysts say bear cycles in clean-up markets are healthy because they typically follow “irrational” periods of reckless asset prices.

According to Cointelegraph Research, blockchain and crypto projects received $14.6 billion in capital investment in the first quarter alone. In this perspective, venture capital investment for the full year 2022 is approximately $30.5 billion.
