Our Journey

Our team of ex-bankers, technologists, and product designers started working in Decentralized Finance (DeFi) about two years ago. Our first products were LoanScan, the leading analytics portal for loans issued on the Ethereum blockchain, and a digital asset lending platform.

We launched Linen App because we identified a gap between the tech and finance savvy who are able to earn high yield on their cash and stablecoins, and the rest who don't have easy onramps to blockchain based lending. We saw an opportunity to create new products such as Linen Cash, which is a high-yield cash management service powered by lending liquidity pools on the Compound protocol, and the Linen Card, a debit card to spend Linen Cash.

Linen App lowers barriers to entry to new lending markets for everyone.
