Moonwell recently secured a strategic funding round for the development of Moonwell Artemis. The round was co-led by Hypersphere Ventures and Arrington Capital, raising $10 million at a $90 million valuation. Additionally, a number of leading crypto and Polkadot ecosystem funds participated. These include: Haun Ventures, Coinbase Ventures, Lemniscap, C Squared, Mirana Ventures, nfr, Woodstock, Robot Ventures, Signum Capital / UOB Ventures, Charterhouse Strategic Partners, KeyChain Capital, and FMFW.
Moonwell Artemis will be activated by the Moonwell community on Moonbeam, the gateway to the Polkadot ecosystem. Moonwell users will be able to supply assets to earn rewards, and obtain assets through over-collateralized loans while earning tokens as rewards for providing liquidity.
