The retail investors' problem
The cryptocurrency and NFT market opens up opportunities to its participants that traditional markets do not. One such opportunity is early-stage venture capital investment, which, if successful, brings multiple increases in investment, the "X's."
So far, however, such investments are mainly available to large investors or funds approached by early-stage projects. Retail investors have the opportunity to participate in launchpads, where they can buy project tokens at bargain prices. But more often than not, allocations at launchpads are distributed by lottery, because there are a lot of applicants, and the offer is limited. Therefore, it is hard to get an allocation, and investors have to spend a lot of time and effort without a guarantee of getting results.
