Alameda Invests in Reef

Alameda Research has announced a $20 million investment in Reef Finance. The investment amount will go toward purchasing the project’s governance token, REEF.

In addition to investing, Alameda Research will collaborate with Reef. The two firms aim to build a bridge between the Polkadot and Solana blockchains. The strategic partnership will also integrate Reef with the FTX-backed Serum DEX and Raydium on Solana.

Reef Finance is a multi-purpose DeFi engine. It provides various functions, such as liquidity provision and performance aggregation between various yield farming and lending platforms. Thanks to Polkadot, it offers support for multiple blockchains.

Founded by Sam-Bankman Fried, Alameda is one of the leading OTC desks for Bitcoin purchases. Recently, Alameda Research invested in the mapping service Maps.me and the DeFi platform Oxygen. It has also made investments in various start-ups working on medicine, artificial intelligence, and blockchain.
