About Cred Protocol

Cred Protocol's on a mission to bring DeFi lending to a billion people. Improving access to financial resources means quantifying risk. Quantified risk at scale is credit scoring.

We're funded by top crypto investors including AllianceDAO, Volt Capital, Robot Ventures, GSR Markets, DCG Expeditions, SNZ Holding, AngelDAO, imToken and amazing founders and executives from across web2 and web3.
