Silta is the bridge connecting decentralized finance with infrastructure investments.

Download the whitepaper arrow_downward

We want to build a world with sufficient renewable power, clean water and infrastructure. Silta helps make such a world possible. It is a technology solution which connects decentralized finance (DeFi) with infrastructure funding, giving lenders access to a new asset class with competitive interest rates.

What Silta does


Presents information about the available infrastructure projects


Gauges the projects’ viability through an automated scoring system


Assesses each project on environmental, social and governance (ESG) criteria


Creates loan pools which are open for contributions from potential lenders


Allows Silta governance token holders to vote whether a project is eligible for funding


Ensures that the appropriate legal documentation and agreements are in place


Releases the funds to the project company which develops the physical asset


Gives the investors a secure blockchain-based mechanism to claim the interest and the principal


Provides staking pools where participants gain additional rewards on their investments

Silta is a technology solution which brings together lenders and project companies. Silta is not a fund or an investment vehicle, and it will not invest people’s money on their behalf.
