These prominent cultural icons, athletes, artists, and tech investors are jumping in to help us expand our reach and introduce Valora to the masses. What their involvement says to us is that crypto (and DeFi) is a cultural revolution that is breaking well out of its niche. 

Our investors have a proven track record of community-building and empowerment initiatives that directly align with our values. On top of their strong belief in Valora’s team and innovative tech, they are passionate about playing a role in helping leverage crypto to foster financial empowerment worldwide.

"This is a giant step in the right direction, both for global financial inequality and for crypto as a whole."

Danny Green, D&R Fund and player for the Philadelphia 76ers NBA team
