Tokenized VC the future?
SInce 2017, a new wave of VC have entered the market, tokenized VC Firms. These VC firms raise money through crowd sale of their tokens and then invest in promising startups. These VC funds remove the hassle of raising money through crowd sale and have an added advantage of a trust factor. The returns from their investments are then distributed among their crowd sale partners.
These new VCs have been instrumental in raising Pre-sale for ICOs. Many ICOs in 2018 are preferring to reach out to Tokenized VC firms to raise money through pre-sale.
