Hey all together!
I got in here the wrong way and already submitted a proposal on DAOhaus
I’m Philipp and one of the founders of Li.Finance (LiFi).
Li.Finance is a mesh of aggregated cross-chain liquidity networks and protocols to power next-gen DeFi projects with superior UX by making liquidity accessible when needed.
By aggregating liquidity networks like Connext, Hop, Thor, Anyswap etc we’re helping layer 2 to find greater developer adoption. With our dapp-widget we help developers to provide a more frictionless experience and user-onboarding. That way we especially want to speed up layer 2 adoption.
We’re strongly believe in the backend we’re about to build. Having an aggregation layer across all bridging solutions would give us a lot of intelligence to build outstanding applications from cross-chain arbitrage to cross-chain yield optimization or analytics. We want to build something really big the whole ecosystem, even across chains, can rely on and wie aim to onboard as many developers out of our network to crypto as possible.
Liquidity is fragmenting across L2s and different L1s. Plenty of projects aim to bridge these gaps to provide faster cross-chain swaps but they’re all coming with the same problems of having to fill liquidity pools while coming with trade-offs on different levels like performance, trustlessness, security and overall UX.
We do not only aim to aggregate all these solutions, but we’ll provide splitted transactions, fallback solutions and a widget, to not only make the moving of funds possible where its needed, but also to make sure that the required swap can happen at any circumstance. Of course we provide full flexibility and customizability for networks, developers and users which networks to rely on so that everyone cann decide on their own how “custodial” solutions they are willing to risk.
A backend that aggregates cross-chain liquidity solutions (like Connext, Hop, Thor) and DEXes and thirdparty integration widgets.
We already have an agreement with Connext go be their official widget.
Prototype will be released by the end of the currently ongoing HackMoney hackathon.
Max and I have a lot of experience building thirdparty integrations and large backends with proper abstraction layers and modular structures.
Max and Philipp have been working together for over 8 years. They spent 6 years bootstrapping stomt.com which started as social network and ended as SaaS for the gaming industry. They‘ve developed over 30 different thirdparty integrations, a web platform, API and cross-platform mobile apps. Philipp did business development in over 14 countries and was frequently booked as speaker. The past two years, Max and Philipp launched several services in market intelligence and biotech.
Since Feb/Mar`21 we’re both full time in crypto:
8 prizes across 3 hackathons + finalists at EthGlobal, taking part in KERNEL III and received a first grant from Connext.
Grant Request $
$50.000 to support the onboarding of a new developer.
So far we only got $50k from Connext as our first grant.
We could need help with introductions to other dapp-developers to integrate our widget.
Here is a comprehensive overview as pitchdeck.
I had much more links in here but were not allowed to add more as a new user.
Looking forward to hear from you!
