Meet the cohort 👇

Swipelux (US) –

Swipelux effortlessly onboards users into various metaverses, gaming platforms, and other dApps using traditional payment methods. Far superior to current onboarding solutions, Swipelux allows users to effortlessly share identity information while ensuring that businesses remain compliant with KYC/AML regulations.

EventHorizon (US) –

Event Horizon solves the low DAO token participation issue. Event Horizon does this by first attracting DAO token deposits into its yield farm and paying out yield in the form of an index fund-like asset, HVAX, Event Horizon’s native token. Yield farmers’ tokens are then mobilized by HVAX holders who can vote on external DAO proposals thus giving HVAX voters a massive vote multiple.

Helix (SG) –

Crypto holders lack access to stable and sustainable yields due to high correlation to underlying crypto asset prices and the self-reliant, recursive nature of DeFi yields. The lack of a robust credit risk assessment framework contributes further to higher default rates and credit losses. Regulatory and compliance risks also loom large, especially with retail participation in DeFi protocols.

Helix addresses these challenges by offering an institutional-grade finance protocol. It provides regulatory-compliant and risk-managed private credit opportunities from real-world to institutional and accredited crypto investors. Through these highly curated  investment opportunities, Helix enhances portfolio yields for crypto investors while enabling scalable access to global capital for real-world borrowers.

QiProtocol (US)

Envision Ethereum as a ‘world computer’, where transactions are as seamless as tweeting. Imagine manageable gas fees, fair MEV distribution, and automated liquidity source selection – all handled by execution agents. Our endeavor is to align user intentions with sophisticated network participants, optimizing the user experience across all EVM chains, in harmony with account abstraction.

31Third (NL) –

DeFi is not ready for institutional adoption. There is a lack of efficient on-chain asset management infrastructure, and decentralized applications have too limited product suites for institutional use cases. As a result, DeFi misses out on $2tn trading volume annually.

31Third tackles this challenge by building a blockchain-native prime brokerage covering the entire digital asset investment lifecycle of institutions. We combine risk analytics, portfolio management, trading, and operations in a single platform, delivering clarity, efficiency, and cost-saving across the investment process.

Our team is from the hedge fund and blockchain space, and we are backed by Outlier Ventures, New Order, 0x Protocol, Techstars, and ABN AMRO.


SYNTHR is redefining instant and slippage-free asset movement across chains by giving users and protocols access to omnichain synchronized liquidity powered by LayerZero, resulting in novel use cases such as:

  • Enabling users to mint and trade highly solvent and interoperable synthetic assets, slippage-free.
  • Enabling DEX aggregators to perform low-slippage cross-chain atomic swaps without locking funds in vulnerable bridge contracts.
  • Providing access to capital-efficient omnichain liquidity for L1s, L2s, and applications.

Coaction (US) –

Coaction is combating the growing issue of centralization in proof-of-stake validator ecosystems with a protocol that benefits small validators and delegators alike. The protocol incentivizes delegators to support small validators struggling to compete against larger operators, offering delegators boosted staking rewards and exposure to the growth of a validator ecosystem. As Coaction’s protocol gains adoption, a marketplace featuring diverse validators utilizing the protocol will emerge, offering stakeholders more choice and decentralization. Ultimately, Coaction’s protocol aims to diminish the gap between top validators and the rest of the field, leading to a more equitable validator ecosystem.

Rampnalysis (AE/UK) –

Despite 20k+ tokens in diverse applications from DeFi to gaming, only 200 are available on major onramps. Crypto struggles to onboard users quickly into their preferred tokens, and use-case specific on/off-ramps for gaming, trading, or payroll are lacking.

Rampnalysis is developing unique solutions like a Cross-Chain Fiat On Ramp, Fiat to Smart Contract capability, Fiat to NFT support for microtransactions, customizable API via Widget & WhiteLabel, and use-case specific Off-Ramp. These solutions offer seamless crypto access and use across platforms, enhancing the crypto user experience significantly.
