Treehouse, a Web3 company transforming on-chain data into meaningful metrics to help decentralized finance (DeFi) investors make informed financial decisions, announced an US$18 million seed round raise.
An undisclosed large FinTech investor led the round with participation from strategic investors, including Mirana Ventures, Lightspeed Venture Partners, Binance, MassMutual Ventures, Global Founders Capital, Jump Capital, GSR, Wintermute, Do Kwon of Terraform Labs, senior executives from SoftBank Vision Fund, and more.
Founded just 11 months ago and fueled by the team’s commitment toward financial inclusion, Treehouse is building the infrastructure required to enable everyday people to fully harness financial products and services made possible by DeFi. Treehouse’s ecosystem of products will empower and shape the way participants interact with the DeFi economy.
David Toh from Mirana Ventures, Venture Partner of Bybit and BitDAO, said, “As an early supporter and investor of Treehouse, we are excited by the growth of the company and what the team has achieved in a short time. We believe in backing builders who have the grit to challenge the status quo and launch differentiated and innovative products in DeFi.”
The Most Comprehensive DeFi Analytics PlatformHarvest, the company’s flagship product, indexes blockchains and deconstructs users’ DeFi positions to present historical data, profit & loss (P&L), and risk metrics on a seamless and highly intuitive user interface. The analytics platform provides information previously unavailable in DeFi and establishes a standard for users to analyze the DeFi risks associated with their current and historical positions.
“As the number of DeFi protocols, supported L1s, L2s, and bridges increase over time, Treehouse’s approach of building an in-house system-of-record for every DeFi user will become critically valuable and a great differentiator. On top of the technical accuracy is a beautiful, simplified dashboard experience optimized for desktop and mobile to cater to both advanced and retail investors,” said Hemant Mohapatra and Marsha Sugana from Lightspeed Venture Partners.
Dominic Chrumka from Wintermute said, “Wintermute is proud to be supporting Treehouse in their mission to make the management of DeFi portfolios easy and meaningful. Their cross-chain dashboards and comprehensive analytics, especially the ability to track P&L attributed to pools in which you are providing liquidity, are game-changing for the industry.”

“We are grateful to have with us a group of partners with such deep technical expertise and networks across both cryptocurrency and traditional finance ecosystems.

Melvin Hade, Partner at Global Founders Capital APAC, said, “With the rising number of investors hopping onto the DeFi bandwagon, this is the perfect time for Treehouse to bring out its state-of-the-art analytics platform to the public. When we first spoke to them, we were excited about the insights they had that led them to build a unique product that the world had never seen before. As one of the earliest backers of Treehouse, we are fully committed to their progress and excited about the long-term partnership.”
