Those participating include Binance Labs, Google Developers Launchpad, AU21 Capital, Ampifi VC, JUN Capital, TRG Capital, and Sandeep Nailwal (Matic Co-founder), amongst others.

Xend Finance gives everyone access to the global money market so members can save and invest in stable currencies. The startup’s platform also allows users to create their own credit unions and cooperatives, eliminating traditional middlemen, while earning up to 15% annual percentage yield on their savings.

“Traditional credit unions have a number of limiting drawbacks, including only 1% annual percentage yield returns,” said Aronu Ugochukwu, CEO of Xend Finance.

“Unlike credit unions, Xend Finance is not limited by geographic location, low liquidity, or absence of deposit insurance. Our groundbreaking technology fixes these problems and is safe, secure, open to all, and transparent.”

User savings can be converted to stable currencies and staked — the process of actively participating in transaction validations on blockchains — on Lending platforms so members can earn compound interest on their money.

A Xend token will also be introduced to further ensure decentralized governance on the Xend Finance platform, while also incentivizing members even more on their savings. The startup will be one of the first companies to build on the Binance Smart Chain and the first out of Africa.
