Zerion Lands $8.2 Million Investment

Zerion, an Ethereum-based investment aggregator and portfolio manager, has raised $8.2 million in a Series A funding round.

The investment round was led by London-based venture capital firm Mosaic Ventures, with participation from Digital Currency Group, Blockchain.com Ventures, Lightspeed, Placeholder, and others.

The round also saw participation from several prominent DeFi founders and investors, including Fernando Martinelli from Balancer, Stani Kulechov from Aave, Joey Krug from Pantera Capital, and Julien Bouteloup from Stake Capital and Curve.

According to Zerion, the team will allocate the fresh capital towards hiring, adding new features, and accelerating the product roadmap. The platform is currently available as a web browser and on mobile and has 200,000 users globally.

Zerion has served more than $600 million in transactional volume this year, according to its own estimates.

Toby Coppel, co-founder and partner at Mosaic Ventures and a future member of Zerion’s Board of Directors, said of the raise:

“We believe that Zerion will emerge as the leading interface for the financial products of the future—DeFi is creating an entirely new alternative financial ecosystem and Zerion enables millions of users to easily and transparently interact with it.”

Founded in 2016, Zerion functions as an investment interface and aggregator. The interface allows trading, borrowing and lending, adding liquidity to automated market makers, and various other activities.

Users can connect multiple Ethereum wallets and access DeFi platforms like Uniswap, 1Inch, Sushi, 0x, Balancer, and Compound through its interface.

When an Ethereum wallet connects to Zerion, the app tracks all of the activity and presents the transaction history in a simple visual format.

As DeFi has become more complex over the last year, with activities like yield farming gaining traction, the demand for aggregators that simplify the user experience has grown. Zerion’s closest competitor, Zapper, raised $15 million in May to capitalize on the growing interest in the space.
