The world’s first regulated DeFi Neo-banking app, Scallop, is coming closer to wrapping up its seed funding round. The project has raised $2.5M from notable institutions and angel investors.

The startup is also the first project to be incubated by MahaDAO.

Both heads of Scallop and MahaDao shared their excitement on this. According to Pranay Sanghavi, Co-Creator at MahaDAO,

The team at Scallop are highly talented, and I can’t wait for them to share with the world their amazing vision.”

Of note, Scallop offers a fast, efficient way for users to manage their crypto and fiat in one place securely. Scallop’s vision is to offer banking products powered by DeFi that would benefit everyday lives and bring cryptocurrency into the mainstream.

The service allows clients to make regular payments, set up direct debits, and send and receive international money transfers through its accounts. It is an innovative solution to improve global financial equality.
