New Blockchain Startup Offers New Way To Connect Innovators And Investors

CoinIdol    2017-11-15 19:18:01

For startups and new invention concepts, finding any sort of substantial funding through VC investors has been painstaking. Rather than focusing on innovations and improving them, many business concept planners find themselves seeking funding slowly.

Many innovators are constantly frustrated by this process. Often, those who have conceived of the best ideas are either buried under the complexity of seeking funding, or their concepts are stolen by larger corporations who then take advantage of them, able to find faster access to higher scale funding. 

This frustration among innovators has led to a substantial rise in crowdfunding platforms. Those platforms, though, are often under-funding, and can take substantial fees. The market is in need of a simple but elegant way for innovators to incentivize investors, pursue funding, and focus on fundamentals.

Starbase, a blockchain-based decentralized crowdfunding platform, has officially concluded an incredibly popular presale of the proprietary STAR tokens for the Starbase platform. The company is now preparing for the public sale portion of the ICO.

Starbase set a fixed hard cap of $10 million for the total ICO, and 80% was already raised very rapidly in the presale backed by Bitcoin Suisse. The public portion of the Starbase ICO will now begin on November 9 at 15:00 UTC, ending November 24 at the same time. The company has met all the full KYC/AML regulatory requirement, and the ICO is fully ready.

Democratizing Investment

One of the many problems with venture capital (VC) is that it is traditionally ruled by a few very rich. The entire field of investment has been a struggle for smaller scale investors to enter. These investors have discovered the complexities in pursuing innovations and investing in them, given the inherent hierarchy within the VC world.

However, because Starbase has created a decentralized platform, the company is able to offer investors a methodology for finding and investing in the very best startups. These investors do not need to be huge, as with traditional VC investments - just able to invest via the proprietary system. By building a powerful platform where innovators are able to create individual tokens as a crowdfunding system, Starbase has simplified the process for ICO building and innovation.

Consumers with an innovation they’d like to find funding for can use the functionality of the platform as a vehicle to issue their own tokens for crowdsale, sharing profitability with their potential investors and creating a system for truly democratizing private business investments.

Presale a Sign of the Times

If there had been any doubt as to the effectiveness and importance of the platform, the company’s recent presale success should indicate that demand for such a decentralized and democratized marketplace is at an all-time high. Investors, both small and large, are pursuing more reasonable approaches to business innovations, and Starbase’s platform is a solution for all.

For example, at one point during the presale, Starbase encountered some brief investment delays in order to comply with KYC/AML regulations. They found themselves needing to validate creditworthiness of some of their investors by hand. Nevertheless, even amidst this temporary delay, the presale still recorded substantial demand for STAR tokens.

In order to solve these issues, during the ICO, Starbase will use PICOPS ( https://picops.parity.io) in order to complete the KYC/AML validations. There is a very small fee of 0.024 ETH which is charged for new users by PICOPS. However, the application will speed and simplify the approval process greatly.  Additionally, the smallest buy-in is only 0.1ETH, per Starbase’s policy, which reflects a company policy of providing a venue for smaller investors to have the chance to participate in larger investments.

The company, started by expert blockchain planner and designer Tomoaki Sato, aims to change the way both innovators and those who want to support them approach fundraising and crowdfunding. The specialized platform will allow entirely new opportunities for intellectual and commercial innovation as well as a deeper adoption of cryptocurrencies

MORECOIN研究院:稳定币作为一种货币商品可以是现实世界的支付入口
据IMEOS报道,MORECOIN研究院发文《稳定币的稳定真的重要吗》,称法币抵押稳定币最核心的问题是兑付信任预期问题,而去中心化稳定币系统无论是抵押型还是算法型,其最大的问题在于手续费和利润不足以支撑系统运转,引入双代币体系后导致更大的不确定性。同时赞同Terra项目方的看法,认为稳定币作为一种货币商品,其“稳定”本身不是最重要的,重要的是作为一个商品能给用户带来怎样的利益、能够解决现有的零售交易哪些问题。无论是去中心化、透明性、稳定性,它们都只是作为一种特殊“货币”的商品属性,本质是为了吸引更多的用户,在未来甚至有可能是现实世界的支付入口,作为零售交易或者现实世界的支付基础设施。

分析师看后市1月23日:2位看涨3位看平
今日共有7位币圈分析师对BTC明日走势进行了判断,其中2位看涨、3位看平、2位看跌。昨日有5位分析师对今日行情判断准确,准确率为5/8。 1.看涨 @鲨鱼:今天市场氛围开始逐渐转好,BTC探底回升、短期将会震荡上行。操作建议:逢低买入。 @丹布朗·卡卡:4小时走势向上运行中,未触及3700压力区间,向上反弹持续,十字星是上涨中继。操作建议:持币待涨,风险控制3400击破,破平台新低无条件止损。 2.看平 @数字货币趋势狂人:比特币走到了一个进退两难的位置,昨天一个穿针诱空应该骗了不少空头入场,结果迅速就被收了回来,这一根针也探明了近期的短底3450。60日线仍然是较大的趋势压力,因此短期将在3450-3700一带反复震荡,自行高抛低吸吧,突破或跌破的可能性极小。 @子夜币谈:今天行情没有太多波澜,后续看平! @币世界多空指南针:1小时操作建议为中立,4小时操作建议为中立。注:多空指南可在《币世界》行情币种详情页查询。 3.看跌 @救赎说币:比特行情大概率是围绕着3570上下不超过150美金震荡,这时候看涨看跌都没有任何意义!还是那句话,没有利好的情况下,没有买入的理由,没有巨大的主流暴涨,巨大的利益吸引散户的情况下,没有买入的理由。所以看跌!操作建议:空仓到过年。 @币橙评测:震荡行情,观望为主,无需参与。操作建议:上破3700美金为突破信号,下破3450美金为探底信号,除此外观望。 (以上观点为分析师个人建议,不构成任何投资意向,仅供参考。)
