Democratizing wealth building with Finblox



Finblox is a saving-focused crypto ecosystem allowing its users to buy and earn daily rewards with no minimums, no lock-ins, no withdrawal restrictions, and a very user-friendly Android and Apple app. In March 2022 the project raised $3.9 million in seed funding from prominent investors including Sequoia, Three Arrows Capital, Dragonfly Capital and more. The community has more than 15,000 active members, serves in more than 100 countries and it supports more than 25 cryptocurrencies (the list is provided in Figure 1).

“To create a digital asset ecosystem where millions of users from around the globe enjoy the upside of crypto wealth building with higher security and lower complexity.”
