dPRIME Asset Modules Finance (”DAM Finance” or “DAM”), a protocol for creating purchasing power from cross-chain token portfolios, is pleased to share that it has received funding from the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund .
The investment in DAM Finance is the third major investment by the Arrington Capital Moonbeam Growth Fund, a recently launched $100m fund to fuel the Moonbeam ecosystem.
DAM facilitates purchasing power from the broadest range of blockchain-secured collateral, including longer tail, yield generating, and real-world assets. In the protocol, borrowers deposit baskets of tokens in a single transaction to mint dPRIME, a Dotsama stablecoin on Moonbeam.
DAM’s innovation provides borrowers more flexibility in dPRIME issuance and vault maintenance by mutualizing the value of deposited collateral. As part of its product roadmap, DAM will utilize Moonbeam’s infrastructure to unlock liquidity for assets native to other parachains and blockchains outside of the Dotsama ecosystem.
“We believe the future is multi-chain and inclusive, a mentality that the DAM Finance team shares with us,” said Michael Arrington of Arrington Capital. “DAM is taking a thoughtful approach to DeFi in creating a new model for purchasing power and risk management. We are thrilled to be supporting them as they embark to solve a missing component in today’s environment.”
“Existing cross-chain approaches suffer from poor asset utilization and liquidity fragmentation,” said Derek Yoo, Founder of Moonbeam. “DAM is a great example of a new cross-chain DeFi protocol that is leveraging connected contracts on Moonbeam to reach assets from multiple blockchains. Being able to securely aggregate liquidity will allow DAM to be more efficient and offer superior user experiences.”
“Moonbeam’s clear positioning as the token economy’s nucleus for cross-chain liquidity makes it the ideal ecosystem for DAM to deliver on its vision,” said Harrison Comfort, Product Lead and Co-Founder of DAM. “Arrington Capital has helped DAM from the beginning, and we’re thrilled to have the support of a highly strategic partner with an extensive track record of scaling projects in the token economy.”
DAM’s initial deployment is targeted for later this year. Follow DAM on Twitter, @DAM_Finance, for additional announcements and project updates.
