InstaDApp raised a $2.4 million seed round from a host of strategic investors.
Notable venture funds involved in the round include Pantera Capital, IDEO Colab, and Robot Ventures headed by Robert Leshner of Compound Finance.
A handful of crypto-sphere thought leaders also participated in the round, including AngelList CEO Naval Ravikant, former Coinbase CTO Balaji Srinivasan, and Kyber Network co-founder Loi Luu.
InstaDApp helps makes decentralize finance more accessible by simplifying interactions between multiple DeFi protocols.
The service bridges positions between leading lending DAOs Compound and Maker, allowing users to switch debt positions between the protocols in fewer steps, the service claims.
The service is fourth in terms of dollar value locked in its contracts, totalling $31 million, trailing MakerDAO, Compound, and Synthetix.
In July, the DApp saw explosive growth, with locked dollar value growing from under $5 million to $42 million in less than a month.
The dollar value locked in InstaDApp contracts has remained stagnant, according to data from DeFi Pulse.
"InstaDapp is a very talented team out of India looking to make decentralized finance more accessible," said Balaji Srinivasan.
