It claims that users can earn up to 10.42% returns on their stablecoins, 6% returns on bitcoin and 6% on Ethereum.
Pillow CEO Arindam Roy told The Economic Times India, “Were creating a suite of high-quality, secure, and transparent financial products that will give our users access to global economic opportunities and let them take control of their financial future.p>
Elevation Capital principal Vaas Bhaskar added, ?The lack of intuitive, user-friendly platforms is a big impediment to large-scale adoption of digital assets as an investment class, and Pillow is doing a phenomenal job in bridging this gap. The growth they’ve been able to achieve since inception is testament to the quality and seamlessness of their solutions.”
Pillow previously raised $13.5m in its Series A funding round in 2017. The round was led by Mayfield, a California-based venture capital firm.
