Kyle Chassé, Founder and CEO of PAID Network, commented:

“Being a serial entrepreneur, I and the companies I have represented have entered into hundreds of business agreements. Some of these invariably led to disputes. I learned first-hand how inefficient the dispute resolution process is, constrained by legacy systems and jurisdictional issues. As a system’s innovator, it was a natural next step to come up with a decentralized business agreement protocol that would enforce and easily resolve business disputes across borders.”

We recently announced the close of a $2m funding round led by Alphabit Fund, alongside Master Ventures. Other strategic investors and partners include A195, Phoenix VC, Brilliance Ventures, Duck DAO, and AU21. Whitelist allocation requests exceeding over $23M.
