The VLaunch project is picking up some major traction ahead of its big launch this month, with a raft of big names from the blockchain community throwing their weight behind the effort.
The project’s list of backers reads like an A to Z of some of the top influencers in the blockchain space. Names such as That Martini Guy (117,000), Altcoin Buzz (with 335,000 subscribers), and Crypto Busy (205,000) are joined by professional investors such as the venture capital firm Metavest Capital, plus Altcoin Daily, Crypto Lark, The Moon Carl and Davincij15.
VLaunch is fronted by a couple of well-known blockchain influencers themselves – MMCrypto and CrypotoMo, and has the noble goal of democratizing access to promising early-stage crypto projects before they enter into the mainstream.
VLaunch should be very different from other projects of its kind. It bills itself as a first-of-its-kind metaverse-based, multichain launchpad with support for Ethereum, Binance Smart Chain, FTM and Matic/Polygon right off the bat. So not only will it have plenty of new tokens in its scope, but its choices will be guided by its active engagement with hundreds of well-known influencers in the crypto industry.
Indeed, community focus is a big part of what VLaunch is all about. As its founders point out, blockchain is all about removing control from the few and giving power to the many. So we can expect its community of prominent blockchain thought leaders to play a key guiding role as VLaunch strives to identify the most promising emerging DeFi projects.
Vlaunch has been moving quickly, attracting more than 88,000 members in its Telegram and recently announcing its pre-launch listing on CoinMarketCap. Key partnerships are said to be in place too, with hedge funds such as Brilliance Ventures and Hype Partners, the decentralized file-sharing protocol Skynet and blockchain PR agency MarketAcross all onboard.
Christopher Jaszczyski (MMCrypto) said he was inspired to create VLaunch after missing out on some of the biggest initial coin offerings of the past few years.
“I missed out on Axie Infinity, for example, I missed out on Decentraland… I wanted to invest in the ICO back then,” he said. “These things made like 100s and even 1,000s of X’s… We want to find a way – how we can get our community in completely for free… the whole space is gonna be big.”
