DeFi Platform Giddy Raises $8M Seed Round

Published on:

Giddy, a mobile app that enables mainstream DeFi adoption, has announced that it has raised $8M in seed funding led by Pelion Venture Partners.

Some investors also include Divvy founder and CEO Blake Murray, Galileo CEO Derek White, Traeger CEO Jeremy Andrus, angel investor Scott Paul, Brand Whisperer Shaun Neff, and real estate mogul and owner of Skinwalker Ranch Brandon Fugal.

“It’s hard to overstate the quality of our innovative and forward-thinking investor group.” says Giddy CEO Eric Parker. “We’ve got the best product and tech minds in the state and could not be more grateful and excited to have their support in creating the future of DeFi adoption.”

The seed round comes as Giddy prepares for the launch of its platform which provides the first-ever one-tap staking for DeFi users. Their groundbreaking technology was developed with the mission to make DeFi accessible to the average cryptocurrency holder, regardless of technical experience or wallet size.

“Our platform provides an elegant solution to private key management, fast and cheap fiat transfers, streamlined smart contract interactions, and access to rich data and analytics. DeFi today is truly remarkable, it’s the cumulative result of innovators and doers across the globe, but it’s too difficult for most people to access.” says Parker. “We want everyone to have the chance to benefit from DeFi, so we’re overhauling the entire process of how people do DeFi”

Giddy focuses on democratizing the most sophisticated strategies of wealth building in crypto that are typically dominated by high net worth investors.

Giddy turns sophisticated DeFi into one-tap investing.

Additional participants in the funding round include financier Eric Varvel, Canopy CEO Davis Bell, Scan founder Kirk Ouimet, Chamber Media founder Travis Chambers, Sepio Capital, Jeff Burningham of Peak Capital, Jared Hutchings of Peer VC, FiberFix founder Eric Child, and KT Tape founder Reed Quinn.

Giddy was founded in 2021 by entrepreneurs Eric and Ethan Parker. Their non-custodial DeFi platform provides streamlined access to DeFi crypto investing and staking. The Giddy wallet provides faster and more secure transactions with ease of withdrawal.
