Zug, July 29, 2021 — The Occam Association is delighted to announce that Emurgo has become a strategic partner of the Occam.fi ecosystem. Emurgo, a global emerging technologies company providing custom-built solutions and one of Cardano blockchain’s three founding entities, has been a solutions developer, accelerator and education provider for the Cardano ecosystem since early 2017.

Emurgo will provide its deep expertise of the Cardano blockchain and the wider decentralized ecosystem to help Occam.fi deliver on its mission of building the fundamental components required to catalyze Cardano’s decentralized finance capabilities.

The first component of the Occam.fi ecosystem is the OccamRazer platform, a decentralized launchpad that will host initial DEX offerings for the next generation of Cardano-based decentralized applications. Emurgo will also provide its expert guidance to Occam.fi in the creation of its other components, including the OccamX DEX, the Occelerator incubator program and more.

Mark Berger, president of the Occam Association, said:

“The expertise and value Emurgo brings to the Occam.fi ecosystem is profound. Through our strategic partnership, we will work together for the good of the entire Cardano ecosystem. Our focus is on building and delivering decentralized tools which will eventually rival centralized exchange venues, built specifically for the Cardano blockchain. Emurgo will help us realize this mission more effectively and impactfully for the benefit of the entire ecosystem.”

OccamRazer is a decentralized fundraising vehicle, or launchpad, with a full suite of compliance and regulation technology tools as well as feature-rich UX suitable to accommodate a vast variety of fundraising profiles. Together with the other Occam.fi components, it will act as a key to unlock the Cardano ecosystems’ liquidity.

Ken Kodama, CEO of Emurgo, said: 

“We are now in the very early stages of building a flourishing DeFi ecosystem for the Cardano blockchain. In the coming months, we expect several projects to launch on Cardano with ready-for-market solutions that require access to higher levels of capital to accelerate their growth. We think the OccamRazer platform, and the rest of the Occam.fi ecosystem, could be instrumental in serving these projects through impactful IDO raises and incubation through Occelerator.”

Occam.fi recently announced that major trading venue, Bitcoin.com Exchange, would be working with the Occam.fi team to offer custodial facilities to the OccamRazer platform, powering an Ethereum–Cardano bi-directional cross-chain liquidity bridge.
