Cryptocurrencies are widely regarded as one of the most disruptive technologies of modern times.
Not only do they empower users to take control of their finances and help to mitigate the damaging effects of inflation, but they also open access to what can only be described as a burgeoning industry full of promise.
Moreover, the cryptocurrency investment industry is becoming more accessible and more structured, giving savvy investors access to myriad opportunities that were simply not possible before.
With that in mind, we take a look at three platforms pushing the envelope, doing the most to bring the next generation of investments to the masses.
Long-tail assets are a relatively unexplored investment class, particularly in the cryptocurrency industry, since illiquid assets are often associated with failed projects.
But this isn’t always the case, as many illiquid assets represent excellent opportunities to buy at the absolute lowest cost before it begins picking up momentum. However, successfully investing in these projects can be a challenge.
This is where Liquidify comes in. Liquidify is primarily concerned with unlocking the liquidity of so-called long-tail crypto assets.
These assets have low liquidity and trading volume, but also have a low market capitalization, giving them extensive room for further growth.
Through Liquidify, holders of long-tail assets can deposit their assets into a Liquidify Asset Pool, which results in the creation of a fixed number of Liquidity Accelerator Tokens (LATs) and Liquidify Tokens (LFY). LATs can be converted back into the corresponding long-tail assets at any time, or these assets can be directly traded between other assets in a pool.
This system does a few things. For one, it boosts the liquidity of long-tail assets, making them more attractive to investors.
It also helps to facilitate price discovery, ensuring promising long-tail assets can quickly reach their fair market value without suffering excess volatility due to a lack of liquidity.
This solution is able to restore liquidity to coins that have a great deal of potential, but simply lack the exposure generated by a major exchange listing or suffer from excessive trading fees due to the blockchain they exist on.
Liquidify is building on Huobi ECO Chain (HECO) and Binance Smart Chain (BSC), ensuring it fits squarely into the growing DeFi ecosystems on both chains, while offering incredibly low transaction fees for users.
Right now, there is an information war of sorts in the cryptocurrency investment space.
The vast majority of new blockchain projects run early-stage investment rounds such as seed, pre-sales, and private sales, which allow investors to gain access to project tokens at the earliest stages of a project’s growth cycle.
However, few regular investors actually get the opportunity to participate in these early-stage rounds because they get snatched up by VCs, crypto funds, and those in the know — leaving little for anybody else.
But that’s slowly changing, thanks to the advent of platforms like A2DAO, which open access to promising early-stage investments through a unique community-based access scheme.
The platform is powered by a utility token known as ATD, which is used for both community governance and accessing investment opportunities on A2DAO’s upcoming A2Jump platform.
By only serving up projects that have been vetted and curated by the heavily experienced A2DAO team, investors are able to select from a range of promising opportunities that were previously only available to well-connected crypto funds.
With more than a few standout projects already on its portfolio, including the likes of The Graph, Casper, Oasis, NFT Tech, and Cash Tech, A2DAO looks set to disrupt the early-stage investment sector by expanding it to regular investors.
