Shield Secures $2M Funding, with A&T Capital and Hashkey Capital Leading the Round

The successful closure of the investment round enables Shield to fuel the exponential growth in the global market, acquire talents and deliver upcoming innovative derivatives products in the DeFi space.

Shield’s Latest Funding Round

Jasmine, partner at A&T Capital also added, “Shield Protocol’s perpetual option provides users a brand new trading experience leveraging on the innovative perpetual contract that has no position loss. This new model avoids direct competition with CEX in the first place and can be counted as a unique go-to-market strategy. We believe the capable founding team will endeavor to provide innovation into the new era and we will be together with them to help realize their full potential.”

Rui from Hashkey Capital said in a statement: “We always believe that innovation in composability and capital efficiency determines the success of DEFI projects. Shield offers a creative product that allows users to take high leverage with a low position fee. The team has high experience in both traditional derivatives product design and a deep understanding of the Crypto market. We have strong confidence that Shield will bring the experience of DEFI trading to another level.”

Future Roadmap

When getting started with our protocol, users are required to pay a prepaid funding fee. As a result, when a huge downside risk or liquidation occurs, the maximum loss will be limited to this prepaid fee itself, hence upholding the original intention behind the “risk-free” protocol. With an easy setup where registration, KYC procedures, or email are not required, we also have robust liquidity backed by dual Liquidity Pools (LPs) in a Peer-to-Pool model. The dual liquidity pools reduce the risk of low LP mining and sufficiently improve the liquidity.

We have a lot of exciting new things coming up, and the launch of our Initial Dex Offerings is just one of them. In less than a few months, we also hope to launch standard perpetual contracts based on Ethereum layer 2, along with the deployment on other blockchains.
