Who we are
Union Finance is building the Credit Primitive for DeFi.
We believe that open, permission-less, community-owned financial applications are the future and that these new decentralized applications will gain global adoption because the user experience is worlds better.
Market opportunity: There are ~$2B in loans outstanding on Ethereum. All of which are collateralized. In traditional finance un-collateralized lending is 100x that of the collateralized lending market.
Product opportunity: we are building the protocol to enable credit on Ethereum. We believe this is one of the missing primitives to allow DeFi to become Positive Sum and allocate resources to those with more ideas than r.
Company opportunity: we are a team of designers, system engineers, entrepreneurs and crypto veterans looking to build a dream team.
We're backed by forward thinking investors (like Placeholder, 1kx, Coinfund, KR1, Scalar, and top DeFi Protocol builders).
