What is Halofi?
Hello, world…meet HaloFi: the easiest way to hit your savings goals with crypto.
HaloFi is working to solve the age-old problem of setting good financial habits that don’t feel boring and unattainable. By creating custom savings challenges, HaloFi aims to make it fun and rewarding to save toward your financial goals. And it seems to be working as 92% of the HaloFi community is hitting their savings goals, and together they’ve saved over 4 million in crypto savings through yield-earning, badges, and savings pools.
Launched as GoodGhosting in June 2021, HaloFi started with a simple goal of getting regular savers rewarded through a social saving pool - you need only to set the duration, amount, and frequency of your plan to start saving. Then, those goals are transferred to a DeFi protocol, allowing you to earn extra yield. Interest is then split among all profiles who have met savings challenges, at no loss for those who have yet to achieve their goal. Of course, to add an extra layer of fun, savers are continually incentivized with unique NFTs and badges as players hit their milestones.
From Zero to Halo Hero
The ultimate savings hack came from a Hackathon! The idea for HaloFi (then GoodGhosting) was initially conceived at the ETHLondon 2020 hackathon and revisited during the summer of 2020 as part of Gitcoin’s genesis KERNEL program.
In Spring 2023, they rebranded from GoodGhosting to HaloFi and launched a new badging system and challenges to reward every step of your financial journey. Each HaloFi user now has their own “Halo Hero” avatar to keep you company and share your progress as you level up your savings. As you collect more “GG” points, your halo will change color to reflect your progress.
What makes HaloFi different?
