We tell you which blockchain startups are planning to raise funding, and where they're doing it Launchpads, or startup platforms for cryptoprojects, allow startups to raise seed funding for development, and investors to choose an attractive instrument to invest their money.

Launchpads and tokenseals. Overview of crypto startups

Fundraisers are mostly conducted in the formats of Initial Exchange Offerings (IEO) - initial exchange offerings and Initial DEX Offering (IDO) - crowdfunding on decentralized platforms.

With these methods, not project creators look for investors, but the Launchpad selects promising startups and promotes them. Startup platforms carefully check the project and its creators before launching a token sale - a token sale. Often after fundraising is completed, the exchange opens trading in this cryptocurrency.

IEO and IDO have several advantages over the outdated fundraising model - ICO (Initial Coin Offering), analogous to IPO in the traditional market. In lanchpads, many more people can get early access to assets, and it's easier for developers to promote a project and list tokens.

Despite the general downturn in the cryptocurrency industry, new projects keep popping up and attracting funding. In this article, we'll talk about some of the platforms that are hosting fundraisers for startups and which young projects are planning to hold token sales in the near future.

This summer, the platform held fundraisers for 3 projects: Planet Mojo Metaworld sold $364k worth of NFT, and blockchain games WOMBAT and DEFY raised $600k and $200k respectively.

In order to participate in the tokenseals, one must pass the KYC procedure and contribute a certain number of BSCPad platform's native tokens to the stack.

Among them are token sale to raise $500k from Moverse, a Web3 fitness project from the move-to-earn category, and IDO for $250k from MeMusic, a service for earning audio content producers. In addition, Launchpad will launch tokensales for several gaming projects, the cryptocurrency Tofycoin and the decentralized television platform Script Network.

The site also plans to raise funds to develop the Mizar trading platform with a wide range of tools, where traders can choose different strategies to allocate their capital. Upcoming IDO game project Medieval Empires - a complex multiplayer online strategy game set in modern Turkey in the late 13th century.

In the near future, the platform will host an IDO of the blockchain game The Unfettered. It is an upcoming action role-playing video game that revolves around a mysterious and warlike woman, chosen by the gods, who battles underground monsters.

Binance Launchpad
Binance Launchpad is one of the most famous, easy to use and convenient platforms. Basic identity verification is required to work with it. Funds are collected in BNB tokens.

Before launching the tokensale, the Binance team conducts a rigorous vetting of the project and publishes a report. It takes startups at a relatively mature stage of development, with a strong and committed team.

This Binance incubator has launched well-known crypto projects such as Axie Infinity, BitTorrent, SafePal, The SandBox meta universe, Lazio Fan Token and FC Porto Fan Token soccer clubs.
