Keyrock invests in Fija Finance to enhance automated DeFi capabilities

The Keyrock Accelerator Program, in collaboration with Tenity, has concluded successfully after 4 months of intensive development, mentorship, and networking. An ambitious quest to propel the growth of the digital asset space.


Out of an overwhelming pool of nearly 200 applications spanning 36 countries, 8 remarkable startups were selected. Each vying to secure up to €100k of investment potentially.


Yet, this wasn’t a competition. It was an opportunity to meet projects with the same drive to push the boundaries of tokenised economies. A commitment to nurturing the future of our industry.


Started on September 5th, 2023, in Belgium, the program reached its height on a Demo Day held last December. For months, each startup worked hard towards its vision. And today, we’re proud to help fija Finance to achieve its own.


Christoph Scholze, co-founder of fija Finance: “This partnership with Keyrock is a big milestone for us. During the Accelerator Program, we had the opportunity to explore possible synergies and ways Keyrock can integrate our product into their current offerings. We are now super excited to see these efforts materialise.”

Our collaboration with fija Finance

Building crypto solutions requires an all-encompassing approach, from tech to trading strategies and regulation—an approach we recognised in fija Finance.

Juan, CSO and co-founder of Keyrock: “Though difficult, given the exceptional calibre of all selected startups, this decision signifies our belief in fija’s ability to lead the charge towards a more inclusive and efficient digital asset landscape.”


The German-based startup showcased its expertise in widening crypto product access while fully committing to remaining transparent and compliant. They demonstrated their dedication to building a sustainable business, which Keyrock champions as a leading market maker.

Christoph Scholze, fija Finance: “Overall, the Keyrock accelerator program has been a great journey for us, which definitely brought fija a big step forward. We want to thank everyone at Keyrock and Tenity for their ongoing support and for making all this possible.”

Building a yield-generating crypto product

fija Finance makes earning interest with cryptocurrencies compliant, accessible, and transparent. With their crypto-earning-centered approach, they built a product that leverages automated and tokenised DeFi features. DeFi experts are the ones designing yield-generating strategies, which fija then automates and encapsulates within a smart contract.


This process includes comprehensive risk management and ensures regulatory compliance, making it a secure choice for its users.


fija’s services are aimed at a broad spectrum of financial entities in the crypto ecosystem, including exchanges, custodians, crypto funds, investment brokers, institutional investors, and crypto platforms. The product is integrated as a Software as a Service (SaaS) solution, making DeFi strategies accessible and easy to implement for these entities.

Forging new DeFi paths

Our Accelerator Program might be over, but the path to collaboration and turning vision into reality remains wide open. We extend our congratulations to the participating startups. Each one has successfully proven that they push the envelope beyond the conventional.


We also want to thank all the mentors and partners who made this experience impactful. They all showed up in meaningful ways and gave guidance on closing the gap between the dreamt and the done.


Together, we step forward into a future ripe with opportunity. Ready to embrace the next wave of change-makers in the tokenised economy.
