Cardano Makes an Investment of $500K in $COTI

Rather than reinvesting DeFi on a faster version of Ethereum, Cardano is doing something different, said COTI CEO Shahaf Bar-Geffen.

There are a lot of new chains out there like Polkadot and Binance Smart Chain and so on, and they all more or less target the same crypto audience to do DeFi better and all of that,” Bar-Geffen said, referring to the $51 billion decentralized finance sector. “Rather than just doing just another faster or better version of Ethereum with the same DeFi projects on top, Cardano is trying to work with governments, specifically in developing countries in Africa and South America.”

COTI has been a great partner across several projects already, and we plan to leverage their advanced fintech architecture to enable future finance applications on ADA,” Hoskinson said.
