Binance Labs Commits $10 Million Investment in Helio Protocol
Binance Labs – the venture capital and incubation arm of Binance – has committed $10 million to Helio Protocol – a project combining over-collateralized lending of its native decentralized stablecoin, HAY, with SaaS (staking-as-a-service) and LSDfi infrastructure.
Funding Used To Expand Team & Diversify Collateral
The funds from this strategic funding round will be used to expand the team, diversify the collateral across liquid staking providers and bolster support for future multi-chain growth. These initiatives will ensure that Helio and Synclub deliver a robust, secure and diversified platform for the LSDfi community.
Helio Protocol Acquires Synclub To Unlock Full Potential Of HAY
In July 2023, Helio Protocol acquired Synclub to unleash the full potential of HAY by incorporating additional LSTs as collateral – thus empowering users by increasing capital efficiency for maximum rewards. The addition of Synclub’s staking infrastructure and expertise will also further cultivate the product innovation required to secure a safer and more refined staking experience for users.
