Framework Labs – a new "fintech studio" that incubates and supports projects in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space – has stepped out of the shadows with the announcement of a successful seed funding round.

  • Announced Thursday, the $8 million investment was led by Station 13, a sister entity to sports media and technology holding company JDS Sports.
  • Framework Labs sets out to be a "full stack partner," helping govern blockchain protocols, providing liquidity to decentralized exchanges, bootstrapping startups and building consumer apps, all with connections to DeFi.
  • The firm – launched by the founders of DeFi investment fund Framework Ventures – claims to be the foremost staker on Synthetix and a key node operator providing data for Chainlink's oracles.
  • "DeFi is not a spectator sport. Active participation, governance, building of consumer products, and advanced trading strategies are all part of the complex process of making a DeFi protocol successful," said Framework Labs co-founder Vance Spencer in a press release.
  • The studio also claims to be the largest liquidity provider on the decentralized exchange (DEX) Uniswap.
  • The seed funding will go towards expanding the firm's research, trading and engineering teams, providing further liquidity to non-custodial DEXs and incubating startups among other pursuits.
