Klink Finance lands $500k in pre-seed raise


Klink Finance, a gamified digital asset platform, has raised $500,000 in a pre-seed funding round.

The funding round was headed by Blockchain Founders Fund (BFF) and saw participation from UOB Venture Management, Signum Capital, TechMeetsTrader, and StartupGym.

With a beta launch set for late 2022, Klink’s go-to-market prize-linked deposit account will reward users with the chance to win up to $1m in USDC every week, for holding funds as little as $25 USD. The solution provides alternative mechanisms to reward distribution across user populations and will expand further services with social features and digital asset ownership in a way that is safe, exciting and rewarding.

The team behind Klink Finance took their inspiration from the UK Government bond scheme known as Premium Prize Bonds, which has over 21 million participants and $130 billion USD held in assets under management (AUM) across the country. The introduction of Klink Finance’s platform into the market could have a massive positive impact.

By offering a gamified prize-linked solution, all funds on the platform are aggregated together and the yield that is earned on all funds is distributed to users in the form of prizes through probability, which enables steady returns but also the chance for users to earn large returns every week.

Currently, the platform has mapped a product development phase that puts innovation front and center when it comes to user engagement approaches toward holding and growing wealth through digital assets.

Klink co-founder Chris James Murphy said, “When it comes to retail asset management services we have a different way of approaching the market. Our team is on a mission to enable a new way in which wealth can be built and distributed amongst friends and communities over time.”
