The Future of DeFi x Our Strategy

We believe that there will be a significant change in the blockchain and Web3 sphere in the next 5 years, with a particular focus on the following areas:

  • Business and Economy Transformation
  • Leading Global Payments
  • Global Supply Chain Leader
  • Composable Infrastructure
  • Blockchain Identities
  • Gaming Takeover

Calls for greater regulation, security, simplicity, composability, scalability, and application have been heard – it is now time to act upon these calls and build toward the future of the blockchain industry. Worthy projects/ideas that cater to the above areas of interest are likely to be a part of our investment strategy going forward.

Additionally, projects/ideas that intertwine with the offerings of current portfolio companies within the Advanced Blockchain ecosystem are a definite value add as well. Feel free to contact us at your earliest with your projects/ideas.

The company will soon make available its services to our portfolio companies, with service pricing currently being discussed internally.
