Thanks for sharing this.

Given this expansion into India…

  • What’s the timeline for how this impacts your capital raising efforts in Defi?
  • How does this impact needed/forecasted capital from MakerDAO?
  • How can the Centrifuge Community support you here?

Hi @ctcunning. Now that we’ve expanded into new markets, we are seeing a steady upswing in origination, yet we remain prudent on client onboarding. We prioritize quality over quantity. Fortunately we’ve got great partners managing the day to day asset origination in Mexico and India that have been originating some great programs. As we scale the portfolio over the coming months we’ll look for support from both the Maker and Centrifuge communities on a debt ceiling increase.
