When asked what excited him about Spool, Hartej said,

“The fact that so many high quality DeFi products can be built using Spool within a few clicks, is actually mind-blowing. I look forward to seeing a range of innovative approaches to earn yield come alive.”

Hartej continues,

“The reality is that it is simply far too time consuming and complex for many folks to reap the benefits of DeFi, Spool fixes this.

I intend on utilizing it both personally as well as for funds we are affiliated with. Intros to the world’s largest market makers to fund liquidity are incoming. In addition, Zokyo will be ensuring security for Spool, especially when it comes to auditing and offensive cybersecurity.”

Spool DAO Initiator, Luke Lombe said,

“Hartej is one of the most recognised figures in crypto. He’s been an immensely valuable contributor to the entire space and to the multitude of projects he’s been involved with and the Spool DAO is better with him on board.

As Hartej keenly observed, Spool has the potential to be the core to an ecosystem of DeFi products that can leverage its power and composability to build upon. Ultimately, Spool is a toolset that has the scope to make a meaningful impact on the DeFi space and we look forward to seeing the types of projects that Spool can power.”
