Adding Jet Fuel To Boost Our Product Roadmap
Earlier this year we were lucky enough to have an amazing cast of VC’s and angels join our seed round, which helped us spend much needed time and resources hiring world-class talent to build the Jet Protocol that you see now on mainnet today. Since then, we’ve identified additional destinations we want to set course to. We’re not just doing cross-margin borrowing and lending better, but have brought on on additional strategic investors to help usher more of Jet’s protocol, governance and extensible product ideas into the real world.
Decentralized borrowing and lending is a core component of DeFi, and Jet Protocol has been built to take advantage of the speed and throughput offered by Solana. I’m glad to see teams of this caliber with a strong commitment to open-source development continuing to chose Solana. — Raj Gokal, COO at Solana Labs
As we move into this next exciting leg of our journey post mainnet and JET token launch, we’re thrilled to partner with our new investors who have committed $6.8 million in capital.
