ShapeShift Enters Convertible Bond Market with HourGlass and Arbor Finance

DAOs face difficulties with raising funds and financing. It is a known fact that most DAO treasuries have high concentrations of their native token一some relying heavily on selling their governance tokens to fund operations.

This is where HourGlass and Arbor Finance come in—offering permissionless debt-based financing via convertible bonds. This form of financing allows DAOs to secure the funds they need to continue developing and growing their organizations without sacrificing their governance tokens.

Check out our blog to learn more about this partnership.
