Launchpool — Egalitarian Regulatory Compliant Investing

Alphabit, in association with its partners, proudly announce project Launchpool.

Introduction

Launchpool views investing in blockchain projects as fractured. Different stakeholders are not aligned, this is to the detriment of all involved. Launchpool believes crypto investing should be egalitarian, all project stakeholder groups are as important as each other. Launchpool harnesses their strengths, and aligns their incentives, so that the sum is greater than its constituent parts, and projects are a success for all.

Curated and enabled by Alphabit, FBG, Protocol Ventures, Jun Capital, GBIC, Alpha Sigma Capital, Master Ventures and A195; Launchpool leverages communities, knowledge, expertise, contacts and capital to provide crypto projects with the best possible start to life, maximising their chances for success in this fast moving and dynamic space.

Launchpool $LPOOL Explained

Launchpool connects varied stakeholders in the crypto community; including funds, community, marketers and experts, incentivising all.

Funds provide a portion of their deal flow to the Launchpool platform at prices exclusive to early investors. $LPOOL holders stake $LPOOL to access a related portion of the deal on offer. $LPOOL holders are a community of investors, growth hackers, influencers, experts, customers, traders and knowledgeable industry participants who combine to form an incentivised community around the project they have invested in.

$LPOOL will be available as a free reward for staking various tokens on the Launchpool platform during the $LPOOL token distribution phase.

How Launchpool Staking Works, and its Benefits for Varied Stakeholders

Launchpool offers unique incentives for $LPOOL stakers, most notably project tokens can be obtained at the same price large crypto investment funds get them, promoting equality among stakeholders. This also provides transparency and negates any party having any advantages over another.

Benefits for $LPOOL Holders

There are four key benefits for $LPOOL token holders:

  1. Access to projects at the earliest rounds, enabling investors to access best prices without the associated minimum threshold reserved for investment funds.
  2. Peace of mind investments are made in to bona fide projects that have been vetted on a number of levels.
  3. Chance to become a meaningful part of new project’s communities.

Benefits for New Projects

There are five key benefits for new projects who participate in the Launchpool:

  1. Promotion through association with some of the industry’s most recognisable names.
  2. Leverage contacts and industry know-how of some of the most successful funds in the sector.
  3. A ready made community keen to engage.
  4. A diverse customer base.
  5. Capital.

Benefits for Investment Funds

There are four key benefits for investment funds who participate in the Launchpool:

  1. Engaged communities that can leverage the power of the crowd and turbocharge growth hacking.
  2. Community curation and feedback. Deeper insights into why and how projects are successful.
  3. Secure more top quality projects.
  4. Opportunity to give something back and to be closer to the crypto community.

Token Distribution

The Launchpool has a total of 10 million tokens; all tokens will be distributed over 90 days save for operational tokens used to provide liquidity. (each day 94,444 tokens will be distributed) as follows:

  • 25% Staking Rewards — $LPOOL distributed by staking into Launchpool staking pools.
  • 25% Endeavour Rewards — $LPOOL distributed to community members that provide value to Launchpool and Launchpool projects
  • 15% Founding Funds — $LPOOL reward for the funds putting their name and reputation towards Launchpool. Providing deal flow, contacts and advice.
  • 20% Seed and Strategic Round — $LPOOL placed with industry figures to ensure the short and long term health of the project.
  • 15% Operations and Reserves — $LPOOL used to provide and manage liquidity on initial listing. Once the pool is sustainable Launchpool will use to assist with the growth and resilience of the platform.

The tokens available for staking are chosen by the founding funds hoping to raise the profile of their projects. All tokens can be withdrawn by staking participants at any point, so that no one is locked in.

Each staking pool provides the same amount of rewards; the amount of $LPOOL a staker receives will be dependent on the amount of funds currently staked. There will be 2 weeks of promotion before staking goes live so that all participants have the same opportunity to stake from the same time.

Regulation

Launchpool intends to be fully compliant with all regulations in the jurisdictions in which it operates. The $LPOOL token distribution phase is available in most jurisdictions without participants required to submit to KYC. However, where projects launching on Launchpool are raising funds, KYC will be necessary.

Conclusion

The purpose of Launchpool is to connect the varied stakeholders of the crypto community. Together, new projects can leverage a wealth of knowledge and expertise to maximise progress and most importantly, adoption.

Launchpool does this by aligning and incentivising all stakeholders in a transparent way. Benefits accrue to the same participants that provide their strengths in a common endeavour; endeavour rewards for active community engagement galvanises those seeking to achieve the most and re-enforces their ability to do so. The disbursement of endeavour rewards is expected to eventually be administered by a DAO.

A fully audited smart contract and regulatory compliant onboarding mechanism will ensure Launchpool will be held in the highest regard by the digital asset sector as a whole. Launchpool will become the go to platform for projects seeking to launch.

We’re excited to start this journey together.
