Cryptocurrencies are swiftly gaining traction among venture capital (VC) funds and other institutional investors eager to profit from the technology and incorporate it into established financial procedures.

A venture capitalist (VC) is a private equity investor who makes investments in high-growth companies in exchange for a stake in the company. Sponsoring new initiatives or supporting small businesses that want to expand but don’t have access to the stock market are examples of this.

Venture capitalists (VCs) are regularly sought by new enterprises in order to scale and sell their tokens. Venture capitalists have a high failure rate due to the risks associated with investing in unproven firms (including DeFi Projects). Returns on investments that pay off, on the other hand, are substantial.

If a project wants to change the public’s perspective and link itself with qualities like loyalty, sincerity, and trust, which are attributes that define Key Opinion Leaders, including KOLs in marketing campaigns are tremendously advantageous.

As a result, KOL marketing is closely related to branding activities rather than sales goals. It is critical to find the correct figure to head your KOL promotional campaign if you want it to be successful.

Venture capitalists are ready to take a chance on such businesses since they stand to profit handsomely if they succeed. VCs, on the other hand, have a high failure rate due to the uncertainty that comes with investing in new and unproven businesses.

Investors most times commit to fund the creation of a new project and end up dubbed and robbed of their investment, this is where SAFT shows up.

The Introduction of SAFTs

SAFT, an acronym for Simple Agreement for Future Token, is an agreement made between an accredited Investor and a project owner. Basically, an investor agrees to fund an upcoming project in exchange for discounted tokens of the project, SAFT agreements aid in the raising of funds for new projects.

Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), Initial Public Offerings (IPOs), and Initial Exchange Offerings (IEOs) all evolved into IDOs (IEOs). Each of these options had its own set of constraints, so IDOs were a remarkable solution in 2019. Initial Coin Offerings (ICOs), for example, sell tokens before they are listed on an exchange, allowing developers to collect assets for the pool.

In the case of IDOs, however, some of the money raised are placed in liquidity pools in order to create a liquid market before they are listed. They also solved the issue of the expense of paying an intermediary to list an ICO. The idea of launching and funding via a decentralized exchange was soon accepted by many projects.

With IEOs and ICOs, investors struggled with the fact that tokens were not made available for trading immediately. Scammers thrived because it was easy to create a vague project and rug pull, leaving investors with huge losses.

That being said, both developers and investors were pleased to accept the offer of immediate listing or listing after a vesting period via a decentralized exchange. With that new level of transparency and fairness, IDOs soon became the preferred option for projects. However, as lots of projects are being successfully launched through IDO, its strengths have unveiled some of its prevalent limitations.

These limitations were the building blocks for the introduction of SAFTs, as individuals decided to create a technology that could increase the security of investment on the blockchain. The problem, however, was that most of these agreements had no legal effects and the project team could still break the statements of the agreements, elope with the investments, or distribute the tokens at a later date than stated in the SAFTs. This is why we created the TARS Protocol!

TARS Protocol

TARS Protocol brings a solution to investment security for VCs, KOLs, influencers, and investors who are looking for safer platforms to invest in a decentralized world. The TARS Protocol is a protocol for automated deal execution, TARS was created to build an orderly financial system in a decentralized way.
